    From Scandinavia to Arabia - Part 1

    TLDR; the world’s fastest accelerating and coolest 4-door sedan is en route to Abu Dhabi. Like many of you I have been following Tesla for many years. In 2010 I first saw a Roadster parked in the basement at Abu Dhabi Water & Electricity Authority (ADWEA). At first I thought it was a Lotus...

    Red Plug Installation in Abu Dhabi - Electrician Critique?

    Hi. I am posting this in the European forums since our electrical grid closely resembles that of the UK. I just had my electrician complete my 16A 3-Phase Red Plug installation. My electrician wired each of the 3 phases to a 20A breaker + neutral and earth. He installed a separate circuit...

    Cool, eh? Did I get the scoop on this? - - - Updated - - - It seems that the 85, even though not the base, is now the slowest Model S you can order...but now it is also faster @ 140 mph

    Tesla Model S P85D vs Mercedes-Benz E63s AMG Drag Racing 1/4 Mile

    Two very evenly matched super sedans. The '14 AWD $100,000 AMG e63 "S" versus the '14 AWD $98,170 P85D...and for the record, at the time of this video the P85D does not yet have all of its performance unlocked. Enjoy :cool:

    Importing a Model S into a Non-Tesla Country

    I am very close to ordering a P85 from Europe and shipping it to the UAE. I think I will be the 3rd or 4th person here that will get one, and unfortunately I have not been able to contact other owners. For you intrepid Model S owners in non-Tesla countries, how did you deal with the following...

    2 Years of TMC and I Finally Got to Test Drive the First Model S I Ever Saw…
