My Tesla Experience So Far

Apologies if this goes really long (Stephen King once said something about "diarrhea of the word processor" or something like that). Let's get right to it.

I have made many mistakes in the course of owning this vehicle and I will admit full responsibility for matters as we go. While I generally hat...

Tesla's FSD Beta V11 to make use of neural nets for vehicle navigation & control

Currently Tesla's FSD uses neural nets to interpret what it is seeing, however it is not using that to actually make decisions as to how it drives and interacts with the environment. However, FSD Beta V11 will use neural nets for vehicle navigation and control.

This is a clip from Tesla Motors Cl...

Ford Mustang Mach E Needs a Rethink

Trust your instruments! :)

In our first ever "longer" roadtrip in our 22 Tesla M3P I have to admit, despite all the encouragement to the contrary that I have gotten from this board and other long time Tesla vehicle owners, I had quite a bit of anxiety about the road even though it was a simple trip from San Francisco to LA a...

First two week and first ~1000 miles in a new 2023 M3LR AWD

This is my first Tesla, prior to this car I was driving a much loved Subaru Impreza 2.5i that I bought new in 2007. However, it was getting older and I was increasingly having a difficult time justifying burning fossil fuels. So like many of you I put my wallet where my conscious was and took the pl...

Model Y - Initial Impressions - Delights, surprises, disappointments and concerns

Bought a 23 Model Y without a test drive (no test drive available, but have test driven an older MY 3 some time back). Some initial perspectives after a week.

1. Very spacious- doesn’t look like it from outside. Leg room and head room are pretty good.
2. Smooth app experience in-car and o...
