So I just flat out flew on I5 for about 100 miles on a trip back from Roseburg to Eugene Oregon.. Lots of hill climbing/descending.. lots of new asphalt as well. The Id.4 was a serious blast and I was driving in the 85+mph range effortlessly and a few time when no one was around blasted to 100.. where I felt the governor slow me down. I'm 47 and typically a boring speed limit driver but couldn't resist as this is my 1st weekend cruise.. bought this 1st edition last week. Anyway.. I don't plan on doing this often but are these made to do that sort of driving? I know it's more unsafe than cruising at 65 but are the cars designed to be doing it regularly like if you lived in Germany and cruised the Autobahn? The car felt absolutely solid/smooth and comfortable at those speeds.. My 2017 BMW X3 I probably only went over 90 a couple times in the 4 years I owned it and it definitely didn't feel comfortable driving that speed. And of course my old Honda's and Dodge rigs I've owned in the past woulda been flat out scary at those speeds.
