Tesla is a paradigm changing vehicle, and I have 2. The people are almost like religious converts or like they just stopped smoking. They sell hundreds of thousands annually. It will replace most cars and save thousands of lives.Seems like the current highly enthusiastic community, that replaced Viper, is perhaps Tesla. That seems to be the new aspirational brand.
The Viper was this mind blowing ultra performance car for it's time that could kill you. Only 1500 a year stepped up.
I don't think it is too close a comparison, just both groups are/were infatuated with their cars.
