    Nashville Downtown Supercharger

    This will be a welcome addition. People going east or west can detour slightly to get to it by taking 440 instead of 40, and obviously 24 carries a ton of traffic. I would love a MetroCenter location too. It’s easy on and off the interstate, both I-65 and I-40 are adjacent, and there are...

    Tesla ruined it

    Same here. When I got my Model S my wife was happy for me but didn't care all that much. We transitioned essentially all of our family driving over the Model S, but she was scared to drive it for a few months. Out of necessity, she had to drive it once while her Infiniti SUV was being worked...

    Tesla needs to refresh the Model S, asap.

    I really don’t think they need to update the exterior very much. I actually like the thought that they could do subtle exterior changes every three years (like the nose con e) so that an existing car never suddenly looks old. I also think the Model S still is one of the sexiest cars on the road...

    Tesla To Slash Workforce In Effort To Bring Cheapest Model 3 To Market

    I’m a little confused by this latest move. They have stopped producing the S/X 75D and seemingly cut the total number of employees building those models. However, I assumed (possibly incorrectly) that the margins on the 75D were still higher than the margins on the non-performance Model 3...

    7 weeks and counting since last substantial software update

    I just got 2018.50.6. :( I was the second to update on ev-fw.com.

    7 weeks and counting since last substantial software update

    I just got notified of a software update and it is now updating. I have a 2017 build Model S with AP 2.5.

    75 S and X discontinued

    I haven't read all the posts, but have read a decent number of them. Forgive me if I'm redundant. I doubt they can sell 100,000 S/X per year if there isn't a 75D option. Anecdotally, it seems like the 75D is the most common S/X new delivery in my neck of the woods, and it is what I chose. For...

    Key Model X VIN Numbers

    I purchased a new Model S in 2017 (AP2.5) and quickly realized that I also wanted to get a Model X for my wife to drive. After much thinking, I am now leaning toward getting a CPO Model X since they are now widely available with the original lease deals ending. We will likely get a 6 seat...

    Nashville Downtown Supercharger

    I wish they would get started on this. The Brentwood SC is essentially always fully occupied during the day and early evening at this point. We need the extra capacity.

    Tesla removes Full Self-Driving (FSD) option from Design Studio

    Here’s an example of a company doing it right: Two days ago I flew JetBlue, but between the time I ordered the tickets and actually flew, the company raised their baggage fees by a few dollars. However, they grandfathered everyone who had booked their travel so that we fell under the new...

    Tesla removes Full Self-Driving (FSD) option from Design Studio

    When Tesla put in writing on the website and the sales page some variation of “$3000 now or $4000 later” that sure seems like an agreement made at the time of sale. At a minimum it seems like false advertising. They literally said we could all pay $4000 later to get FSD. Whether that is legally...

    Tesla removes Full Self-Driving (FSD) option from Design Studio

    So my Tesla account says $5000 to upgrade to FSD as well. I purchased my Model S in October of 2017, and at that time the FSD was $3000 at the time of purchase or $4000 later. I don't see how they can now go back and raise the price of FSD (if it ever actually comes) for those of us that...

    Nashville Downtown Supercharger

    Tesla is going to run into major headaches with metro codes and permitting. I have been involved in construction projects recently and the codes department is simply overrun with new construction. There are delays happening that are best measured in months.

    Nashville Downtown Supercharger

    I agree wholeheartedly about Manchester. The Chattanooga SC is my least favorite by a long shot, and having Manchester open will allow Nashville to Atlanta travel without having to stop at Chattanooga. The Dickson SC has been notoriously unreliable, and the Gulch SC should allow most people to...

    Nashville Downtown Supercharger

    No, that’s the JW Marriott that is finishing up construction. The supercharger is located in the parking garage of the Gulch Crossings building which is west of the JW Marriott site by a couple blocks.
