    Using a 2021 Ford F-150 Hybrid to Charge Tesla

    lol like I said, it would never be a primary source of charging. Do you have any experience with that adapter?

    Using a 2021 Ford F-150 Hybrid to Charge Tesla

    Obviously, using this truck to charge my Tesla as a primary source isn't economical, but if the power ever goes out, this would be a good backup option.

    Using a 2021 Ford F-150 Hybrid to Charge Tesla

    My company just purchased a new F-150 Hybrid for me, which comes equipped with a 7.2 kw inverter (they call it a generator). The L14-30R output is rated at 240V/30 amps. Ford says this can run full power for up to 32 hours on a full tank of gas. But since Tesla doesn't make an adaptor for...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Yep. All that's been done for awhile now. My rep from Tesla told me I have everything completed up to this point.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    At what point did everyone's EDD show up on their Tesla account? My order has been in since June. Already completed the payment information, but still nothing.

    Model S Delivery Hold Week of July 19 2021

    The younger photo was taken Jan 2, and the "older" photo March 1. Pretty sure they started taking orders for these in September 2020. That beautiful girl was born in November 2020. That tells me that we aren't getting our cars for at least 1.5 months after promised ~ give or take. Trust me, I...

    Model S Delivery Hold Week of July 19 2021

    I'm being patient, because I know my white Plaid, with white seats will look even better with this girl in the passenger seat ;)

    “No Battery Performance” Option 2016 P90DL

    My 2015 P85D also says "No Battery Performance" under Options. This wasn't always listed, and I can only remember seeing it within the past year or so.

    AP1 ONLY Please -- life after 2018.50.6

    1. Yes, my browser works. I don't use Waze for Tesla. Actually my browser is a bit quicker to load now. That's not really saying much though, because it still sucks. 2. No, I cannot see the release notes. But this has occurred multiple times in the past. 3. Yes, I can access the owner's manual...

    AP1 ONLY Please -- life after 2018.50.6

    I realize this is an old post, but I own a P85D, manufactured Jan 2015. It's an AP1 car. I'm currently on 2019.32.12.8 e831d0e.

    Unboxing Model Diecast Roadster

    Just got mine today. Going past real world implications, since that's what everyone else is focusing on, the quality of this diecast was much lower than my Semi Truck and Model S P85 diecast. The quality control was much lower. The hard top doesn't sit flush (backside sits higher than the...

    The situation in Iceland

    I mentioned that to somebody a few days ago. I told him "If you see a Tesla here, you need to realize how much trouble they went through to get it." 30 minutes later, a Model S 100D drove by us. I live in Ohio, and Tesla's have recently become more prevalent there (mostly Model 3's). I see one...

    The situation in Iceland

    I’ve been in Iceland for 3 days now, and surprised at how many Tesla’s I’ve seen so far. Three Model S’, and I surprisingly spotted a black Model 3 at a gas station (ironically) outside of Reykjavík.

    Do you have shudder on hard acceleration? AKA death rattle?

    I had the shudder in my P85D, and brought it to the service center sometime last year to get it looked at. At that time, they told me it was normal and to expect some shudder when accelerating fast. It noticeably happened more when I wasn’t in low suspension. But a few months ago, after...

    Die cast Tesla Semi for sale now

    Would love to have one of those original Roadster diecasts, but I don't think they ever released them for sale. I've only ever seen the photos of them.

    Die cast Tesla Semi for sale now

    Good information, thanks. Tesla likely wouldn't ever give hint to who makes their diecasts. They are high quality though. The cars all have opening frunks, trunks, and doors. The semi frunk doesn't open though, which IMO is a step backwards, because I imagine that most people buying the semi...

    Die cast Tesla Semi for sale now

    I agree. I was a little disappointed that the semi had a smaller scale than the other diecasts. I assume it was a price thing, if they wanted to keep them all $250. Here's a side-by-side comparison.

    Die cast Tesla Semi for sale now

    Also, out of curiosity, what is the significance of the company who actually made it? I also own the P85 diecast, but never gave thought to what company made these for Tesla.

    Die cast Tesla Semi for sale now

    Not that I could find. I've attached photos of the packaging and bottom of the semi.

    I actually bought one. Not sure why. I might have had a few drinks that night. Detail is nice though.

    New Performance w/ Ludicrous Cheaper than Inventory Cars

    Personally, I’m happy. I own a P85D, and looking to upgrade soon.

    New Performance w/ Ludicrous Cheaper than Inventory Cars

    I have to assume these New Inventory cars will drop in price soon. You can now buy a brand new Model S Performance w/ Ludicrous for less than an inventory P100D. New Model S Performance with Ludicrous is $129k maxed out. New Inventory P100D: New & Used Electric Cars | Tesla

    Elon says AWD and Perf orders start at end of next week!

    Paid the $10 Patreon fee a couple weeks ago to listen to your podcast early. Appreciate you recording later than usual, but sorry to hear the new options still weren't available by the time you recorded. Let's hope for tonight!

    MS Front Passenger Interior Door Panel Becoming Detached

    Any idea what caused it to happen to you? Also, did SC cover it under warranty?

    MS Front Passenger Interior Door Panel Becoming Detached

    The front passenger door panel has somehow become partly detached on my Model S. Has anyone else had this happen before? It was brought to my attention by a passenger today, right before they got into the car. I know for sure it hasn't always been like this. The only way I can imagine this...

    Tesla Diecast 1:18 Model S with Desktop Supercharger

    Posting this to help others who may have wondered how the Desktop Supercharger compared in scale to the 1:18 Tesla Model S diecast cars. I primarily bought the Desktop Supercharger to be an accessory to the diecast model, but I had trouble finding any comparisons to see the scale of each...

    P100D vs my P85D: if you're looking at CPO

    My local Tesla store let me have a P100D for an overnight rental. I can't say I didn't have a great time, because I did. But from my experience, even though the acceleration from 0 was noticeably faster, it wasn't enough to justify the $148k price on the model I drove, compared to what I paid...

    List of Early locations countrywide for Model 3 viewing in store

    Just got back from the event. The car will be available for the general public starting tomorrow. One of the reps said they'll have it on display "forever". The event was different from what I've heard of past events. They had the store closed to the general public, but there was no line to get...

    List of Early locations countrywide for Model 3 viewing in store

    It will be available at the Columbus, OH store tomorrow (Thursday, March 8) as invite-only. Not sure if that means it'll be available to the general public Friday or not. I got the invite from Tesla on Monday.

    Strange. Anyone else having climate turning on, not by you?

    This started happening to me after the newest software update. I have always had Smart Preconditioning turned on, which never really worked at all, in my experience, until this past week. Mon-Fri I typically leave home at 9am, and on Sat-Sun, I have no consistent driving schedule. But it seems...

    Did AP1 get beter in recent updates?

    There's a two-lane road I travel on almost every day (non-highway) that has well-painted lines. AP1 works great on it. 45 MPH. But it was always frustrating when I passed the school speed limit sign, where AP1 would automatically lower the speed, even outside of school hours. But within the...

    P85D Question??

    I ordered a Jan.'15 build CPO P85D on 9/22/17 and took delivery on 11/09. However, it was ready for me on 11/07. Like others said, every P85D came with Insane mode. Previous owner of mine did not upgrade to Ludicrous, but it did have the + suspension.

    P85D 2015 CPO $70k

    Thanks to everybody who responded! I really appreciate the feedback. Looking forward to "officially" joining the club soon :)

    P85D 2015 CPO $70k

    Any other thoughts? $71.3k still seems like a small price to pay for what I'm buying. Comes with a solid roof, standard leather seats, no enhanced audio system, (well aware of AP1 vs Enhanced). Is there anything else I'm missing with this?

    P85D 2015 CPO $70k

    Yes, it does come with the 4 year, 50k mile warranty. Very excited about it.

    P85D 2015 CPO $70k

    New (soon to be) owner of an S, and June '16 Model 3 reservation holder. Like others on here - I'm sure - I couldn't wait until my Model 3 delivery, so I pushed forward with a Model S. For the past few months, I've been checking the Used Inventory page almost every day. My minimum requirements...
