    Tesla Presidential Limo?

    Yeah, it's not like they do road trips to all the prez libraries. Would be cool to see a Supercharger at the White House though.

    Mirrors Gone from Model X on Tesla Motors Page

    As a camera guy I totally agree there are better places to put the lenses for optimal viewing and 360 degree capture as Mark says. Though being able to reach out and clean off the lenses in the old locations does have some benefit.

    HPC In Del Mar, California?

    Clarie's in Solono Beach is where the Tesla LA club stopped a few years ago. They have added a charger to their solar array since (thanks to us?). We also had a meet at Torrey Pines (shown) that has a few Blinks in the parking garage.

    Tesla making changes to inventory car purchase process

    I was told (in LA) that all the service inventory was sold out and there was no plans to replace it. Then later was told that there was a plan to make 100 60's for service use. A FWIW the cars would rotate. First they would appear on the sales floor (I was shocked to see 60 for less that $75K...

    Attn female owners: journalist comments on lack of female Tesla drivers

    Sales studies have shown that most women prioritize the need for a car that is safe an reliable (which also means good service). For some reason I think Elon knew this when embarking on the S. When the first car rolled off the line he stressed how they had built in extreme safety. We all had to...

    That's a great question! I have known the Federal Reserve was privately owned but not who those owners are by name and title. Seems their names would appear on some of those annual lists of worlds richest people. Are they that invisible?

    Ford c-max solar energy concept

    Yeah, will it work thorough a car cover? As I said on the other thread, It's ridiculous to move the car. Sun-tracking solar array systems are already in use and could be adapted for pointing the lens array. Still though, it does not even seem worth it.

    If Tesla can show that an older electric car (The Roadster) has the ability to be upgraded to a longer range/faster car with a simple battery swap that is another value proposition added to the long list of advantages of buying an electric car. And that Tesla shows that it plans to support and...
