    Buying a Standard Range Model 3 without Autopilot

    Do you know if there has been any successful upgrades from SR to SR+ in terms of software? If I recall correctly, they remove the ability to turn on heated seats in the back, the range is locked, and physically some speakers aren't installed. Can you get those heated seats and range back at a...

    Tesla Semi as mobile SuperCharger?

    After the trailer weight, capacity is generally 48,000 lbs, or roughly 21800 kg. At 167 Wh/g, they could fit about 3,640 kWh on the trailer. Enough to fully charge around 364 P100Ds. The cost would be a mere $364,000 at $100/kWh. There was a post a while back, either here or on Reddit, that...

    Tesla should make a Semi Trailer

    They really should. I think it's more likely when they have achieved Level 5 autonomy. They could do something similar to this: Dethleffs puts a new spin on towing with an electric camping trailer that nearly drives itself

    Indiana Tesla owners and future owners

    It's been a few weeks.. how are Model 3 deliveries in Indiana going? I have yet to spot one, but I've heard of some spottings in both Fort Wayne and Indianapolis.

    Lease option for Model 3? 35k Version ready in March?

    Oh, now that would be interesting. I would strongly prefer to lease for 2-3 years, and then buy a 3 or Y when the lease is up.

    Any other reservation in Houston area get this?

    Wonderful! I was bummed to be missing the Chicago display this weekend, but I happen to be flying to Houston on Saturday. Perfect timing.

    Indiana Tesla owners and future owners

    I just popped in to ask the very same thing. I'm non-owner, and waited in line to reserve. Curious to see the first Indiana deliveries, or even configurations.

    Supercharger - Fort Wayne, IN

    A few photos from Saturday evening. The permit listed specifically calls out electrical vehicles, which I hadn't seen in the thread before. You can view the rest of the photos here: https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/media/albums/fort-wayne-tesla-supercharger-at-meijer.877/ FW Supercharger 1 by...

    Business purchase and the $7500 FEDERAL tax credit

    Not so. Take a closer look at Line 6. It says that lines 7-10 only apply to 2-wheel vehicles. Line 11 then says to enter the amount from Line 6, which is the percentage of business use multiplied by $7500. So if the car is used 50% for business, you get the a $3750 credit for business use. But...

    Indiana HB1592 - to shut out direct sales after 1000 vehicles

    Thanks for the update. We need to remain vigilant on this. Do we have any documents from the study committee formed last year? Also, why is that bipartisan efforts so rarely focus on increasing freedoms but instead on restricting them?

    How are your Ultra White Seats looking?

    I wonder what raw denim would do to the white seats. It's something I'll need to consider when it comes time to configure my Model 3.

    Goodbye Federal $7,500 tax credit - no way it survives Trump/Senate/House

    This insider might be Peter Thiel. He donated over a million dollars to elect Trump, and was just named to the transition team. He's rumored to be Trump's tech adviser after being sworn in.
