    Model S Gets a spot on Showtime Series!

    Has anyone noticed the Model S being driven by Don Cheedle/Marty Kaan on the Showtime Series House Of Lies? I wonder if it was random or orchestrated by, or in collaboration with Tesla?

    Model X Falcon Doors

    We Need Options For The Falcon Wing Doors On The Model X I agree. All I am asking for is options. I expect that the Falcon Doors may appeal to some, but they have issues that will tend to limit the Model X's market segment, especially for the more active outdoors oriented people who need...

    Model X Falcon Doors

    I agree the Falcon Doors may appeal to some, but they have issues that will tend to limit the Model X's market segment. Elon Musk has said that he is a big proponent of "Optionality". This is a perfect example of the need for Options. - - - Updated - - - I don't think anyone has suggested...

    Model X Falcon Doors

    Not in the circles I travel in. I can show you parking lots full of cars, trucks, campers, and SUVs with the racks loaded.

    Model X Falcon Doors

    My concern is that the Falcon Doors will not allow carrying sport and recreational equipment on the roof. People who want an SUV (Sport Utility Vehicle) tent to want to use them to transport their toys. I have 12' kayaks, skis, snowboards, mountain bikes, inflatable kayaks and I am used to...

    Model X Roof Rack|Hitch Rack|Trailer|Toys

    I also would mount a trailer hitch for the occasional larger load. I just don't want to tow a trailer every day to carry a 35 pound 12 foot kayak . I need a roof rack.

    Model X Roof Rack|Hitch Rack|Trailer|Toys

    I drive an Astrovan. The roof is much higher than the Model X. I used to put my kayaks and my bikes on the roof, but after knocking the bikes into trees, houses, and other low hanging objects, I started using a hitch mounted bike rack. It is much easier to load the bikes, but really...

    Model X Roof Rack|Hitch Rack|Trailer|Toys

    My preference in a vehicle is for the SUV configuration with All Wheel Drive. As much as I feel that the Model S is a groundbreaking vehicle, a sedan is not what I want. I have owned 4 - AWD Astro Vans since 1993, I currently have a 2005. I have had roof racks to cary my kayaks on; a Chevy...

    Model X Roof Rack|Hitch Rack|Trailer|Toys

    This is more my speed This is my 12' Whitewater Playboat. I'm thinking Tesla will offer options to the Falcon Wing Doors. If they do, I'll buy a model X, or if not, I'll buy something else. More options will be available soon enough.

    Model X Roof Rack|Hitch Rack|Trailer|Toys

    I paddle locally in a National Park, the parking spaces don't allow room for trailers. I'd have to buy a trailer, register it, pay taxes on it, find a place to keep it, deal with parking, and driving in DC traffic issues with a trailer, rather than throw it on the roof and go. Not gonna...

    Model X Roof Rack|Hitch Rack|Trailer|Toys

    I paddle frequently on local rivers so I need to have the boat on the car, or be able to load it in a minute or two. Trailers might be OK for longer trips, but I'm so used to just loading the boats on the roof for the past 30 years or so. I prefer the travel lighter ability. Those trailers do...

    Model X Roof Rack|Hitch Rack|Trailer|Toys

    Understood, I'm aware that Falcons are just rear doors. My kayak is over 12' long, and I need to be able to cary up to 6 of them at times. This requires racks that are about 54' wide. People who buy SUVs, especially expensive ones, like to bring their toys with them. "Options are always...

    Model X Roof Rack|Hitch Rack|Trailer|Toys

    I get where this would be the simplest modification for Tesla to make, but I frequently cary several kayaks at a time and sometimes they stay on the roof for quite a while. I need to be able to step up on the car to position them and tie them down while the doors are open. It seems that...

    Model X Falcon Doors

    Consider Options To The Falcon Wing Doors My current Astro Van has all of these and they get used regularly, but I carry the Kayaks too frequently to want to use a trailer for them. Anyone agree?
