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...
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.
"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...
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.
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!
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...
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.
Also, my younger daughter, who was killed in the crash, was 10 years old, and about to start 6th grade in middle school next Monday.
Just wanted to leave a little note out here, perhaps encouraging the masses that are waiting for the model 3 or maybe to those that are waiting for an affordable Model S. I received my Model S today. After 10 years of carefully following Tesla Motors and drooling over this car, listening to 3 podcasts a week, reading electrek.co, teslarati,...
VIN #878, #625, #997, #1096 (high score)
Playa Vista Model 3 staging area
Just got home from a bucket list road trip in my P100D. Spent 1 month circumnavigating the lower 48 visiting friends, family and interesting places. Car performed flawlessly, driver and road conditions less so. General comments: Never any range anxiety, often bladder anxiety. Only waited once for a supercharger, 5 minutes in Rapid City due to...
Hi All! First post on this forum. Took delivery of my Model 3 (long range, premium upgrades, pearl white) back in October and I've been loving it. This is my first brand new car and also the first that I can't really do crazy mods to (I'm used to engine swaps, EV conversions, etc).
This is the first car where I'm basically limited to cosmetic...
The election year puts me in a fact checking mood, and I'm a glutton for calling people out. Sorry not sorry.

Never owned another American car - So no Tesla

Mod note: I went to yesterday morning and moved everything off topic into a chatter thread. Please, I have a life to live away from this forum.
Can we post photos or talk about photos here in this thread and discuss other topics in their respective threads? Just because there are no new pictures doesn't mean you keep posting here. Start a new...
This is so sad. They are our neighbors. He's a great guy, active in the school board. The 13 year old sister is in critical condition. She is a classmate and friend of my son. When they were in first grade, she was his "girlfriend".
Furious that someone would DUI, particularly at 9:30am.
Give those that you love a hug.
