    My Plaid wish list.

    I had a 3 year lease on a P100D, then 3 years in an Alfa Romeo Quadrifoglio and now I’m back into a Plaid, and this is my wish list. Screen saver - I’d like the OPTION for the screen to significantly darken when it times out after a minute or so when no buttons have been pushed so that its...

    Where's my "Z" button?

    While I appreciate the ability to change the acceleration, suspension, ride height and steering sensitivity independently (so many cars can't) I do miss the ability to change them all at once. Changing my Alpha romeo from normal to dynamic mode changes everything from the exhaust note to...

    A yoke or a joke?

    I have ordered my plaid S with the yoke. Having said that, here are some thoughts. I have spent the last two days driving my car pretending I have a yoke, and not touching the top half of the steering wheel. I find it mildly annoying at best and dangerous at worst. Driving schools will...

    Trickle UP theory

    The success of Tesla appropriately rests on the success of the model 3 - the car for every man, and particularly in Europe and Asia where smaller cars are a premium. Therefore I totally understand and support all the developments going into the model 3. But since the first roadster prototype was...

    Permanently excited about Taycan?

    It is obvious to me that Porsche made a blatant and unoriginal copy of the almost defunct Faraday FF91 a few years ago and is slowly bringing it to production. The shape of the car, dimensions and specifications are almost the same. Ironically theses seem outdated as Tesla has moved on. However...

    My blind spots.

    I'd like to suggest an improvement to the cute graphics on the dashboard. #1 Although it's nice to see the car icons match the real world, I'd like it if my tesla icon (avatar!) were moved up on the display so that the display would show 2-3 car lengths behind and beside me, so that it would...

    19 vs 21" Wheel performance on P100D

    I'm sure this has been covered before, and maybe someone can redirect me to the appropriate thread. Im upgrading from a P85D to a P100D soon. Im not thrilled with the look of the new 21" wheels. I have had 4 flat tires in 3 three years on my current 21" tires which I consider somewhat fragile...

    While Teslas fail at "Cars and Coffee"

    When I first got my P85D I used to clean and polish it and take it proudly to the local cars and coffee, and show it off proudly. These days, I park in regular parking and don’t bother showing it at all. These are the reasons why the car enthusiasts at cars and coffee are generally indifferent...

    Another plea for Apple car play / android equivalent

    Upon inception the center console was replete with useful utilities and easter eggs, but three years later on there is growing discontent at the lack of updates and overall slowness of the browser. I make an earnest plea that apple car play be included as an app in the center console for...

    Model S Sports package "SS"

    The model S was designed as a family sedan, with optional seating up to 7, but has become popular as an electric muscle car in its own right. Here’s my fantasy model S sports “SS” package that would be nice in the configurator: · Carbon fiber hood with modest SS badging. This is only a...

    Partly thanks to Tesla's open technology architecture where it doesn't hold patents, and partly due to jealously, we are now seeing many other car makers building electric super cars. These include Rimac from Croatia, Nio from China, Faraday, and Lucid from the US with credible threats from Audi...

    Built in Dashcam

    Every Tesla comes with a high resolution forward facing camera that is always on. The car also has continuous GPS, and keeps track of speed and direction information as well as time and date. There is at least one USB in every car. Surely we have all the necessary hardware in place for someone...

    Dash Board Requests

    Three somewhat nerdy requests for the dashboard. 1) I'd like the status display that shows my tire pressure to also show which of my motors is driving on my P85D by lighting up little motor icons on the car picture like other hybrids do. Perhaps even give a percentage or fraction or even torque...
