Re: I actually own one
Model s. From £80,700
Mazda RX8 is now <£7,000
Not a fair comparison. That is presumably the price for a new Tesla, whereas any RX-8 you can buy nowadays will be years old, and will probably have expensive things going wrong with it. It was taken off the European market in 2010, and production ceased in 2011 or 2012.
Plus, as I know because I had an RX-8 for 5 years, petrol consumption of just over 20mpg adds to the costs somewhat :(
