There's no direct rival to the Tesla Model S—at least not yet.
All of the mainstream automakers have announced their intentions to bring to market an all-electric sedan that may impress like the Model S, but none are yet here.
The Audi A7 may be the most direct rival in terms of looks, luxury, and in top-performance spec, outright speed.
The BMW 7-Series and Mercedes-Benz S Class both have hybrid systems that have a limited electric-only range, but nothing to rival the Tesla.
The Porsche Panamera is a similarly styled speed machine, but in top models, it's nowhere near as efficient.
If you're looking for efficiency and the same "look at me" exterior, the BMW i8 is available, but its price is extremely prohibitive.
