    Will initial model 3's only be pricey signature / 4wd versions?

    They absolutley will NOT prioritize overseas markets, lol. The plan was to get the cars in the hands of Tesla employees first, local CA customers 2nd. Trust in that plan, as they cannot afford the Model S rollout issues I experienced, it would be a disaster for the company. The early deliveries...

    Model S owners are you keeping the MS when getting a Model 3?

    never say never. you probably would, if you had a Model S with basically none of the current feature set. (no parking sensors, no rear heated seats (no winter package), no autonomous sensors, all these and more where added).

    Model S owners are you keeping the MS when getting a Model 3?

    being that I own a VERY early Model S (December 2012 production), the Model 3 is my upgrade. 2018/2019 should be about right. Tesla Time.

    Supercharger - Auburn MA

    Tesla tried to put the SuperCharger at the Charlton rest stop, or any rest stops on the Mass Pike. You can blame the Commonwealth of MA for this decision, they don't want to put EV infrastructure that is proprietary to one manufacturer at public locations... It was, and still is a stupid...

    No dash screen -- only 15" touchscreen?

    It's a prototype, they are 2 years away from delivering this car (Despite claiming Dec 2017, it's "Tesla Time") The fact the car is so far along is impressive.. many things can/will change by the time it gets to production.

    yup, got it, entered.. if I win the lottery (unlikely), could be a chance to try those cross country SuperCharger routes (I'm in Boston)

    Sure, but if you look at the hours Golden Pizza is open, it is open much later than the mall, and it is also a shorter walk from the SuperChargers, plus I'd rather support a small business than a national chain.

    Short-Term TSLA Price Movements - 2016

    Actually, it's extremely difficult to time a bottom buy, if you are within %5-%10 with a multiyear (3-4 years) investment timeframe, you will still be fine. If you are a short term trader, I would advise you to avoid TSLA, unless your a professional.

    Are we worried yet about Tesla Stock?

    The stock price is being pushed down by greedy shorts, most of whom have never had anything good to say about TSLA, or Tesla, most of whom push their vitriol on "Seeking Mediocrity", which is mostly a bear site at this point, they have also been burned on the way up. Many of them come here to...

    Tesla Showroom/Gallery - Hingham MA

    Makes perfect sense to me... They are opening showrooms in high income/net worth communities, Hingham, Back Bay (mall at Prudential Center). If your trying to sell $100K+ cars, you don't open stores in Brockton, Lynn, or Lawrence.

    Elon: Autopilot, new constraints on when it can be used

    The solution is to install a camera looking at the driver. If the autopilot doesn't detect they are looking forward it disengages. This may be one of the cameras in the new 8 camera system mentioned above... it could allow some grace period, before disengaging. It could also detect a...

    Supercharger - Dedham, MA

    There is not adequate space. The 2-3 near route 1 are right by an entrance/exit, they are unusable for trailers, as they will block 1 of the 2 entrance/exits, the one intended for SuperCharger access. On the other end, those could possibly block the gate to the employee parking area, but maybe...

    Survey: Tesla as primary car?

    I only have the Model S now.. had an old 1994 Suburban with a Fisher snowplow on it, but I'm moving to a condo, so no need to own my own snowplow any longer... sold it before last winter. I do miss the trailer hitch.. eventually I'll trade up to Model X, assuming it has trailering...

    an investment by Google could also speed up the self driving car business, makes a lot of sense for Google and Tesla to team up on that aspect... Remember who invested in Uber in 2013 :rolleyes: Google Ventures - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    NE destination overnight charging stations

    I was their today, there are (2) Tesla HPWC's, on 50A breakers, delivering 40A each. The J-1772 is a 40A Clipper Creek (32A):

    I am here now. Right HPWC blew a circuit breaker at 80Amps, using left HPWC and lowered current to 65A, Told Bill at the front desk about it, he is going to get someone to look at it. At the summit now, 100 mile visibility and 50 degress (took stagecoach up)

    I would call them, the 14-50's and the HPWC's are in the 2 "delivery bays"' which are in the showroom (overhead doors are facing the SuperCharger area). not sure what the hours are. other than that, I have a 14-50 on the outside of my garage in Randolph, and a 75A EVSE in the garage, if I am...

    The sad part of owning a Tesla... accidents

    perhaps with the Dedham service center now open, they'll find/authorize another body shop, there are too many Model S's already in the area for Hollis Auto body to handle. I'm sure there is something on Route 1 in the Dedham/Norwood area they can get to do body work. BTW, the Mount Washington...

    Supercharger - Dedham, MA

    look through the third SuperCharger frame from the left, you'll see a large dark green object behind it in the distance. I believe that is the transformer. This site is different, the transformer will also power the service center, not just the SuperCharger Perhaps they are waiting for an...

    Supercharger - Dedham, MA

    thanks brassguy, the major progress seems to be the transformer looks to be set on the pad (visible on your picture). Did you notice if the SuperCharger equipment pad had been poured yet?

    Charge Port Door will not stay closed

    I had this issue with my Dec 2012 production Model S (yes, before the charge port could close, back then they where manually closed). Turns out it was the steel plate on the door, was a bit rusted, and the sensor could't detect the door being closed. Tesla service replaced the entire charge port.
  38. mitch672

    Supercharger - Dedham, MA

    There are 2, in the "delivery bays" (which are inside, each has an overhead door to the parking lot though). The site has limited power, until the new electrical service is completed, would be my guess. They didn't put 14-50's or HPWC's by the lifts, just noticed 120V outlets. I'm guessing...

    Tesla, as we've come to expect, throws a nice party. several pictures of the 7 lifts, alignment lift, tire mounting and balancing equipment.

    I don't think they are replying/confirming. I don't think any local Model S owner who shows up would be turned away, it's essentialy a "meet and greet" for the new location's people/owners.

    Just after the turn in at the light. "Summershack" is directly next to Tesla, I'm guessing some of us will need to make the right into legacy place and then make the first left turn, when Teslas parking lot is filled.

    stopped by quickly, prefab transformer concrete pad is installed, several holes (4) dug for what looks to be S.C pedestals, most backfilling completed. Looks to be 4 S.C pedestals, pull in forward, from the looks of their placement. We'll have to wait this out, and see what develops.. more...

    I live about 10 miles away, and no invitation. stopped by today, new paving in some of the lot, much progress on the new pad mount transformer, it's very obvious where the SuperCharger pedestals will be. looking good :smile:

    Supercharger - Dedham, MA

    I'll drive by on the weekend and take updated pictures. It's very likely they are opening the location on the old electrical service, since you can see the conditions as of Tuesday afternoon.

    todays update: nothing to see here, move on looky lews. seems there has been a change in plans as to the pole to supply to new transformer. crews where installing conduit today, on the pole on the property... backfilling trenches going on, as well as sweeping the parking lot. Their is now a...

    Supercharger - Dedham, MA

    its been a full week since my last visit.. not much progress to report, unfortunatley. A few trenches have been partialy backfilled, some new curbing installed by one entrance, the sign has gone up on the building. Electrical work has not made any progress.

    the last picture with the wires hanging on the pole, shows the high voltage terminations have been done to the coaxial HV cable, it has a ground surounding the center, and is a real PITA to work with, I had the opportunity several years ago to do the pole top and vault end of those HV coaxial...

    Notice the SuperCharger pedestals will be "5.72 feet from the side property line" and the closest pedestal to Route 1 will be just 13 feet from Route 1 ("Front Yard Setback"). This pretty much confirms they are going on the Bed, Bath and Beyond/Massage Envy/Verizon abuters side of the property...

    That's because the utility runs them up the pole, mounts them, fuses them, and connects it up.
