Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

that someone with the name "Snowmobile" doesn't understand snow mobility.
It's basically tires.
AWD will significantly aid acceleration, and if that was the fishtailing you observed, that would help.
Add in ground clearance, weight distribution and electronic aids, and you've defined your in-snow ability.
But, rating one car's ability vs another is almost always based upon false assumptions.
I would be surprised if the Tesla S doesn't have weight distribution better than most RWD's. Throw good tires on it and it should do as well as any other RWD.
