    I think the HUD display will feature block buster movies because of AP !!

    What kind of home charger to get?

    Thanks. That is the conclusion I came to as well but it is good to hear it works from someone with actual experience. I will be doing quite a bit of long distance travel on the weekends but that is what superchargers are for !! - - - Updated - - - Also, i live in a Townhouse. Is it better...

    What kind of home charger to get?

    So here is an interesting twist to ask... I have an old Hot Water Heater line that is run to the front wall of my house. 40A circuit. Placing it outside on the front wall of the house would be easy. Would this be the best option or should I consider upgrading it to a 14-50 ? Given that my...

    We want some Model 3 Leaks, renders, sketches !

    +1 Point right on ... What McRat seems to be forgetting is that the base Model 3 will be half the base Model S and the loaded Model 3 will be half the loaded Model S which makes it about the same cost as a base Model S.

    Tesla with hand controls for disabled people

    My thought is that it will not be necessary in a couple of years. All Teslas will be self- driving.

    Lo-Drag: Cd < 0.2

    A car is not really an asset. Well, ok if it is paid off it is an asset but it is still depreciating and not an investment. I guess technically you are right it's an asset. But if it is your biggest asset you have far more problems than autonomomous driving wrecking (pun intended) your...

    Model 3 Reveal Dates?

    I would hold out the last 7-10 days of March. Likely the end of the month. TM tries to squeak in at the last minute.

    Any S drivers think they might prefer the smaller 3?

    We want some Model 3 Leaks, renders, sketches !

    Yes to all except a scaled down Model S. Elon has said it will look like no other car on the market. This scares me a bit but I am holding hopes on his statement that it will not be a wierdmobile. I have confidence that it will be amazing.

    Well then MAYBE those people should actually charge at HOME instead of 20 miles down the road and complain that they don't have one 5 miles away instead !! Some people, myself not included, can not even make the trips they want or have to go hundreds of miles out of their way to make it instead...

    While I appreciate that several Superchargers were just completed on the east coast affecting how biased this map looks towards CA and that there is probably a big push to get things completed by year end not only in the US but worldwide. To me this map paints a disturbing image...... none the...

    Model 3 positioning and marketing

    I think I am a bit odd here but here are my thoughts. In short, I do not think it will be a step backwards for you. I believe, unlike others, that the Model S has its own place and the Model 3 will too. I do not believe that Tesla will dumb down the Model 3 to allow the Model S to win...

    Two Thirds of Early Model S Drivetrains May Fail By 60,000miles

    It should be noted that BMW had a similar issue with their fuel pumps failing. It took they several years of study and redesigning SEVERAL times to get it right. But the issue has faded into the oblivion now.

    Recent email from TM might show some hints of future progress on the east coast for those snooping for new sites. I know they are making good progress and I am glad they respond to requests. Seems part form letter and part tailored which I feel both appropriate and efficient. Hoping that they...

    Two Thirds of Early Model S Drivetrains May Fail By 60,000miles

    Not to make excuses but perhaps it COULD be fixed but they have determined that it is better to take the old ones and study them to help solve the problem. So sorry for your troubles !!! That really stinks !!

    We want some Model 3 Leaks, renders, sketches !

    If it is yours I am glad to know who to give credit to. I saw it on here a long time ago and saved it. I have posted it a few times and stated that I did not know who to give credit to.

    Time to go Frunkless?

    I for one believe that it will NOT be steel. TM has invested too much in Al construction and tech to chuck it on the Model 3. And the car needs to be light. Crumple Zone is of paramount importance. Elon will NOT settle for less than a 5 star rating in ALL categories. And since it will be...

    "Confirmed" Model ≡ Pricing

    True but that credit is phased out over several quarters AFTER the 200,000 is reached. OTOH most people buying a Model 3 won't have enough taxes to reach the $7500 anyway. It is a credit afterall.

    Lo-Drag: Cd < 0.2

    Jumping to lots of conclusions there. I believe that the Model 3 will seat five adults and have more luggage space than a BMW 3 Series with both the trunk and the frunk. Models S and X have WAY more storage space than any of the competitors do. Have no fear Grasshopper Franz and Elon will...

    Will the Model 3 be Ludicrously Fast?

    Why would it need AWD ? the BMW M3 does it without AWD. 3.9 is not that big of a deal for traction. Beyond that for Insane and Ludicrious I agree AWD probably necessary. You might be right on the larger battery but better chemistry might change that too. But I think a Base Model 3 with the...

    Will the Model 3 be Ludicrously Fast?

    And I believe that the base Model 3 will be about 3.9 0-60 to compete with the BMW M3.

    Will the Model 3 be Ludicrously Fast?

    To answer the OPs question. Yes the Model 3 will be Ludicriously fast. (I predict the PXXD version will hit 0-60 in 2.4 seconds) For under $50K ? No, I seriously doubt that.

    Auto Lane Change Question

    I have been wondering this.... When you put on the blinker it will change lanes for you. I understand that. I also understand that you need to turn the blinker off at the end of the change. What happens if you don't turn the blinker off ? Does it just keep changing lanes until you turn it...

    300+ Mile Model 3?

    I disagree. The biggest battery available will be sold first and the smaller ones will follow shortly thereafter.

    Tesla Supercharger network

    Actually you are wrong there too. CA has 163,700 sq mi and 34 chargers. 1: 4814 sq mi FL has 65,700 sq mi and 11 superchargers. 1:5977 sq mi. Here in VA we are 1:11,697 and there are in fact about 5-6 states that actually have none !! EDIT: there are actually 7 states that have none.

    Says the person with 12 superchargers within 100 miles. - - - Updated - - - My larger point is that Superchargers are supposed to be for LONG DISTANCE travel not local travel. If that is the case build them according to that plan.

    I am just tired of CA complaining that they do not have enough when we don't have ANY. That's all. All I ask is to spread the love to more people. My approach would be to fill in the big picture and then add pixels later to make it clearer. Not the current put 1 clear piece in and leave the...
