    Supercharger - Cheyenne, WY

    Drove into Cheyenne this evening. One spot is ice’d. Huge empty mall parking lot and some idiot ices 1/4 supercharger spots:(

    Tesla S P100D driving like maniac

    We got Sexy Hotness - named by the Tesla guys in the City Center showroom not us - in September 2018. We pass by the Embassy of Croatia all.the.time. My son calls it the Embassy of Tesla because of all the Teslas parked out front. It is awesome. When in June is the party? We would love to...

    Tesla S P100D driving like maniac

    I’ve posted this before but here is the difference between a P100D and 100D. I’ve never love a car so much in my life.

    Model S range and interior update imminent?

    Lots of cars have a higher top speed than the p100d not just the Bentley. Just about every 2 door sports coupe 200k+ supercars like the Bentley will have a higher top speed than 4 door full size family sedan P100D... but the P100D will beat every single one of these in 0 to 60 acceleration.

    Model S range and interior update imminent?

    Yeah, it’s for fun! In VA, reckless driving (20+ miles over the speed limit) is a class 1 misdemeanor with steep penalties including jail time. Be careful!

    Model S range and interior update imminent?

    The car is a two door sports coupe for people who prefer a more luxurious interior than a Lamborghini Huracan. Doesn’t have the looks of the Lamborghini either. As a 200k+ Sports coupe, you should be comparing it to the Tesla roadster not the P100D which is a four door family sedan: I use...

    Model S range and interior update imminent?

    Which Bentley goes 209mph? Link? Four door sedan? A Bentley that goes faster than a Hellcat. THAT I have to see:).

    Model S range and interior update imminent?

    The fastest production sedan ever made is the Dodge Charger Hellcat with a top speed of 204 mph. The fastest Bentley has a top speed of 202mph slower than the Hellcat. The Cadillac CTS V has a top speed of 200 mph. The Tesla model S P100D is the quickest by acceleration for a production car...

    "The S and X are better cars than the Model 3" - Elon

    I had a chance to buy the Model 3 but chose the S when we bought in Sept’18. Need the room to haul everyone and all the stuff... and the S P100D is faster. My next car will be the Roadster not the 3 when kid is old enough to drive and if he behaves himself, we may let him drive the Teslas and...

    "The S and X are better cars than the Model 3" - Elon

    Yes, I know track mode is for the track... but I only ever drive +9 over the speed limit;) and never on a track in my life. Straight line performance is what effects my daily driving the most. I was sad about the M5.

    "The S and X are better cars than the Model 3" - Elon

    Here is the MS P100D against the BMW M5, Panamera Turbo S hybrid, AMG GT 4.... the M5 can’t launch properly:( These are the latest and greatest performance, 4 door, full sized sedans from the Germans against the “needs an immediate refresh” MS. The ole gal didn’t do badly (understatement)...

    The new fantasy sales framework will fail

    The store near me is in a very high end retail store area with Hermes, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, etc. smack in the middle of DC with the usual horrible traffic and premium rents. I don't think they actually have anyone test drive from the store but bring a car to the customer if they want a test...

    The new fantasy sales framework will fail

    I test drove but the car was brought to me at my house at the day and time of my choosing which is the kind of service expected for a luxury car... I was told what cars they had available, color etc and had my pick. I didn't have to go to a Tesla store even though there is one less than a mile...

    The new fantasy sales framework will fail

    The under 30 crowd all know about Tesla. There are a lot of hip hop and rap songs about Tesla cars in their lyrics. A lot of high school kids would love a model 3 - they all know because pop culture for them is molded via the internet. Young people are use to buying stuff online. In fact...

    SPINOFF: Did you test drive a Tesla before buying yours?

    Yes... test drove and bought the car I test drove. Love at first drive! Nothing else I test drove compared to my S P100D! I test drove the X P100D too:). Wow! Only reason I chose the S over the X was size... and the S accelerated faster. Amazing cars:)

    The new fantasy sales framework will fail

    It makes sense that they are closing retail stores when the emphasis is on selling the Model 3 and the soon to be out Y. The retail store in DC is located in a shopping center that caters to ultra high end luxury designers like Gucci, Hermes, Dior, etc. The rents are insane. Since most young...

    Tesla to Shutter Stores In Favor of Online Sales

    Agree with this. In DC, the Tesla store/showroom is located at City Center - retail shopping space that caters to high end designers like Hermes, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, etc. Premium retail space and not cheap. Same for stores in VA and MD which are located at high end malls. Now that...

    New FSD details

    Yes, I know. The ultrasonic sensors are useless for curbs right now. The car doesn't seem to recognize curbs because they are low and close to the wheels and are terrible at parallel parking and detecting curbs in general. Parallel parking works better with lines because the cameras are...

    New FSD details

    So autopark will be useless unless the parking spaces are clearly delineated with lines like this: [______][______] The empty, no line space is the curb. So unless you are lucky enough to live in a city where most parallel parking spots are drawn in, you'll have to parallel park yourself...

    Impact of February 28 Announcement on Current 100D Owners

    It's a car. It depreciates... it's not stocks, real estate,... it's a consumer good like tvs and shoes... and luxury cars depreciate more rapidly than any other cars. So what. I bought my P100D in September and I never loved a car so much. If I wanted "value", I would have bought another...

    For those that own a Model S Ludicrous without breaking the bank, what is you total comp or job?

    It use to be considered bad manners to ask... my 11 yr old likes to point out that most model S/X drivers are “really old, even older than you Mommy”. Hahaha! May not be true on the west coast where Tesla is the Toyota of Silicon Valley but here on the East coast, It’s true. I think it is the...

    Why Roadster not have supercar look?

    Will be getting the new roadster but I’ll admit these lambos are “Dope”. Not gaudy at all... They are gas guzzlers and costs twice as much as the roadster. The roadster is a bargain supercar. lol! Can smoke’m all too. A great daily driver.

    Perfect service center visit

    Had to schedule a visit through my phone for a tire patch and a new passenger side mirror cover (it fell off on the freeway. Not sure why but the last person to touch it was my body shop for a wrap not Tesla). Scheduled the appointment through the app a week out. Fine. Tire was drivable as...

    Would AP2 ever support the DashCam feature

    You can’t be serious. It’s the techie norm to over promise and shoot for the moon and see where it actually ends up. Most of the time if 2/3 of what is promised is delivered, it’s pretty good. Has Elon (or Larry Ellison, etc) ever apologized?!?

    People who went from an S to a 3, how do you feel about it?

    It’s like comparing a Mercedes C class to a Mercedes S class price wise. You can buy two P3D for one P100D. Totally different cars marketed to different segments of the market. Tesla has been different from most car makers in that their categories have been more fluid mostly due to the fact...

    Categories of luckiest Tesla owners.

    Nah. Never considered buying a Model 3 when we bought the SP100D in Sept 2018. The 3 is too small and my kids didn’t like the back seats when they sat in it in the showroom. If we didn’t buy the S, we probably would have bought the Porsche Panamera Turbo or an Aston Martin Rapide S or some...

    19 vs 21" Wheel performance on P100D

    What the hell are you talking about?!? I use my MS primarily to haul little kids (car pool) and old people (more car pool) around. You asked whether weight and braking/cornering was a safety issue for the S P100D. It isn’t.... and the car is super nimble despite the weight (you can’t tell...

    Model X accident in New Jersey, Feb 2019

    Agree. I’ve driven that road and used autopilot. Driver can always override autopilot. Hard to believe the driver when he says the car won’t let him take control. He most likely did not take control until too late.

    Tesla as a 1st car?

    Long time ago, my father bought a new Honda Civic for me when I was in grad school. Very sweet of my dad. I’m his little girl. I agree that my husband choosing a car for me is a bit much. My darling husband knows better;) I still have the Civic. It’s 21 yrs old, never been in an accident...

    I don't know anything about the E Tron, but the Super Bowl commercial was good

    Real price before incentives of $74,800https://www.audiusa.com/models/audi-e-tron They do their comparison against the discontinued X 75D and IPace - much older cars. Silly for a brand new car coming out.

    Tesla S 100D Sooooo slow to start up

    No. This is obviously not normal and the car needs to be taken to service. I have never seen the boot up screen (as shown in another thread) or wait to drive. Even had an enterprise 75D loaner w/500 miles for a week and that car did not do this either. My P100D is never plugged in (I SC 98%...

    screen discoloration

    I wrote in another thread this afternoon that I did not have this issue but now not sure after examining some screenshots after reading this thread. I think there is a yellowing on the upper left corner near “Navigate”. I probably would not have noticed it except for this thread. LOL!

    Tesla Unbundled "Ludicrous Mode" for S/X; will "Ludicrous" be available on M3 for a cost?

    I have ludicrous and have never driven the S P100D on the other modes. It use to be the entire point of buying a P100D - ludicrous mode was standard for P until now and unlike the car in the video, there is no “+” badge for ludicrous plus for 2018 just the underline under the p100d badge. I...

    Tesla S 100D Sooooo slow to start up

    Maybe I am just lucky but I don’t have this issue- I get in the car, put in drive and go- the screen is not yellowing (see pic) and accelerates just fine - smooth as silk and super fast, no shudder/nothing and completely silent. I bought the demo I test drove. It is a 2018 March build.

    Tesla needs to refresh the Model S, asap.

    Agree. Bought a new 2018 MS P100D with ludicrous+ this past Sept and chose the MS over a Mercedes S class, Audi R8, Porsche Panamera Turbo, Aston Martin, BMW 7 series, Maserati, etc. Why the MS? It has 1. The fastest 0 to 60 at 2.3 secs. Beats most super/hypercars. <—— mostly this:) 2. It is...

    So all model S are 100D now

    Yeah, but you are the guy who stops for 15/20 minutes to SC as needed. I actually tried this on our last road trip and cannot manage to leave Sheetz in less than 30. Obviously it is a dawdle problem not a SC problem. Sad :(. I have a sheetz card now.

    All Tesla new inventory MS/X US cars are gone....

    For Q3 and Q4, Tesla’s been selling more cars than they produce. Simple as that. They’ve sold everything they can. Some showrooms have signs on the cars saying the demos are “not for sale” otherwise they’ll have empty rooms with no cars to show. This was posted on the investors forum: Tesla...

    So all model S are 100D now

    It’ll be very easy for Tesla to offer free supercharging for three yrs or whatever when the Taycan comes out. I have FUSC for my 2018 S P100D because they were offering the incentive during the 2018 third quarter. It’s what made us purchase the car on September 15, 2018 (the last day of the...

    So all model S are 100D now

    Porsche’s high speed charging network are mostly being built at their dealerships - not convenient for road trips.... and the Taycan’s published 0 to 60 time are 3.3 secs, comparable to a P3. No thanks.

    Tesla Q4 2018 earnings results

    I just find it funny that Tesla sold more vehicles than they produced in both the 3rd and 4th quarters. Basically they’ve sold everything they can sell resulting in bare showrooms with demo cars with prominent signs saying that this particular car is not for sale.

    Me too. I drive much more than fly now. Use super chargers 95% of the time; don’t have home charging but 98% of my mileage is from road trips. I walk to work. I’ve driven 6000 miles+ in 3 months since buying the car. 4 months of ownership: 1 month was spent wrapping/ceramic coating and...

    So all model S are 100D now

    The additional 20k for ludicrous is a bargain for that level of performance compared to other luxury sports sedans that are ICE, hybrids and SLOWER ;). Look at the Porsche Panamera Turbo, etc. I got a 14k discount due to the car being an inventory car. I test drove it and bought it. Amazing...

    360 view only appears with auto park (P) which sucks btw. Auto park is still buggy - never know when “P” will appear and P mostly appears in traffic. Hey Elon, how about an auto park switch/button/something like every other car that has a similar parking feature! Useless for parallel...

    Help! 100D vs P100D

    Shop around. I was pleasantly surprised by Geico and left State Farm which I’ve used forever. Huge difference in rates for the same insurance. Get the P100D. You’ll love it!
