OK. OK. I'm home...LOL
Impressions of the Model 3
Fremont delivery center: Really nice facility. No public charging but that's nitpicking. You check in and they tell you to have a coffee and a seat while they get your DS. Good baristas and all the usual coffee drinks available as well as tea and hot chocolate. The menu has a "Ludicrous Latte"...
Just read the Electrek story on the Model 3 delivery. You are all fabulous. Tesla fulfils bucket list of dying man by delivering his Model 3 early
I wish you all could have shared in the experience today. We all were tearing up at different points. Seeing Jon walking along, deep in conversation, carrying the oxygen generator while walking and talking ... everyone throughout Tesla lit up with smiles, it was amazing. (The private tour went so long that we ran the golf cart (non-Tesla)...
With the recent allegations by some Tesla drivers on the failure of Autopilot on their cars and the media jumping on those incidents, this is a quick primer for every Tesla driver (including spouses, siblings, sons and daughters) and Laura MacCleery, VP of Consumer Policy and Mobilization for Consumer Reports:
Autopilot by definition is a...
So, I just finished some initial testing of my latest modification to the yellow P85 (the one that has retrofitted autopilot hardware). Haven't gotten a lot of pics or videos together yet (roads have been wet from melting snow, so not great conditions for testing), but I can't resist sharing some initial details.
So far the car is a ~570HP...
Over the past month or so I'd been doing some photoshops of the Model 3 in different colors in one of the threads here. Someone suggested we make a downloadable brochure with only the official Tesla colors. It seemed others liked the idea as well. I went ahead and thought it might be a decent idea to put a website together for this...
Alan -- we're on it. Will see if we can help.
I appreciate all the expressions of sympathy. I did not have rear-facing trunk seats. My daughters were in the normal second row, with their seat belts on. At the time of the accident, my car was stopped on the freeway (as was the traffic ahead of me). I believe the car that rear-ended me was traveling at roughly normal highway speeds.
Today is a bittersweet day for me since I took delivery my Model 3 but this will also be my last post on TMC for reasons explained later.
First, trip down memory lane:
Late March 2016
I got in a line at 4am, with a bunch of crazy tesla fanboys like myself!
So I was moderately high up the queue.
I got impatient, so I...
"Leave Tesla Alone"
"It's possible to walk into a dealership and buy a car that drives itself on the freeway about as safely as you would if you were driving the thing. That car also doesn't use gasoline. And it's as fast in the quarter-mile as a Corvette Stingray. The future is here, as William Gibson once said; it's just unevenly...
Based on your input, we have decided to remove all software performance reductions tied to frequent max power usage. These changes will roll out with our next software update (in about three weeks).
We had put these reductions in place to proactively protect the powertrain from wear and tear. Instead, we will monitor the...
Thanks to @FredTMC, I was able to drive his Model 3 for about 30 minutes yesterday.
I was in shock all day.
The car blew me away. Way beyond my expectations.
Electrek put out an article saying the Model 3 is all we hoped it to be. Wrong. Completely wrong. It’s not what we hoped it to be. It’s way beyond that.
The car is truly amazing...
Our spec commercial (so... officially fake and no budget) for TESLA is finally online. Please let us know what you think! And also... If you like our story... please post it on your social media channels.
Help us spread the TESLA LOVE!
UPDATE, FIRST DRIVE!
Extremely uneventful, but needless to say this is the first time the car has driven under its own power in the 10 months since I've had it. The car was declared a complete loss approximately one year ago. And here she is in all her naked glory.
Even een algemene "feel good" post van mijn kant. Mijn opa (89) gaat donderdag euthanasie laten plegen i.v.m. dementie en allerlei gevolgen daarvan. Hij is opgegroeid in Indonesië en kon op zijn 12e al paardrijden, schieten en autorijden. Zijn vader had toentertijd (~1940) een auto die zo'n 100 km/u kon halen! Nu heeft Tesla Duiven de moeite...
Hi everyone –
This week, the service team hit a global customer service satisfaction record. The team has done a fantastic job on what we control currently: our own service centers. We’re now turning our efforts on the centers we don’t control: accident repairs in body shops.
The body shop in the OP article did not begin repairs on the...
There were about ten other model 3’s being delivered at the same time. The car is flawless. The paperwork was painless. Initially the car seems quite wonderful to drive. Great visibility, quick acceleration, and great handling. The stereo is far better than the upgraded one in the Model S. I’ll write more later. Stoked!

With your permission, I share a little bit of this very special day: Bonnie Norman on Twitter
tl:dr: He took delivery of his Model 3 today.
I saw my first model 3 in the flesh today, and my heart is still palpitating!
We drove from LA area to Fresno to spend a holiday weekend with relatives. We drove back on 99/5 this afternoon and just returned home. As we were in the vicinity of the Tejon SC, my wife said she needs a comfort stop. YES, YES, YES, my opportunity to ogle Teslas!...
