    Pirelli Scorpion Weatheractive (new Crossclimate competitor)

    The only "review" I found was a comment on this YouTube video : AlegreDiaVolver I got these since July(summer) and already tested them on snow(in the city so far). They handle incredibly well and give me a lot of confidence, the only difference to seasonal tires I've spotted is longer braking...

    Model S Technical / Mechanical Issues

    Can you please help me diagnose a new noise coming from the front of my 2012 P85? It usually kicks in after driving for half an hour or so. I can hear it even when the car is not moving and the A/C is off. Dropbox - Noise.mov - Simplify your life

    I absolutely Love driving my Tesla

    I’ve had my Model S for 7 years now and I still love driving it. It’s just so smooth and quiet. One-pedal driving with instant power and regenerative braking is simply awesome and makes the car feel like an extension of your body. Charging is a non issue; in fact, it’s much easier and faster...

    2020 Porsche Taycan Turbo Gets EPA Range Rating Of Just 201 Miles

    The 2012 Model S felt like the car of the future and still does. My P85 uses 320 Wh per mile on average.

    Electric car sighting in Sunnyvale, CA

    Tesla Model S Front Bumper Nose Cone

    This is the nose cone that came off my 2012 Model S earlier this year. It was protected by a clear wrap (which I removed) so it is still in very good condition. The Tesla T is missing as it was transferred to my new front bumper. There are no holes for parking sensors. The model number is...

    WTB: Nose Cone - Did I miss the Classifieds sub-forum?

    I still have my old nose cone if you're interested in buying it. It's been sitting in my garage. I would need to remove the clear wrap that's on it and clean it. It's in great shape but it's missing the Tesla T that was transferred to the new front bumper.

    Model 3 set to dominate it's category as early as next month

    [start spelling police] “it’s” stands for “it is” or “it has”. Either way, “Model 3 set to dominate it’s category” doesn’t make sense. I think you meant to write “Model 3 set to dominate its category”. [end spelling police]

    2017 Chrysler Pacifica (Minivan) PHEV 30 mile AER

    Chrysler showed the Chrysler Portal EV at CES today. It's a 100% electric minivan with a 100kWh battery and 350kW charging capability. Very cool. Chrysler Portal Concept introduces millennials to their automotive future at CES

    2017 Chrysler Pacifica (Minivan) PHEV 30 mile AER

    We're considering replacing our aging Toyota Sienna with a plug-in hybrid Pacifica but a fully electric minivan would be ideal. The only catch is charging when going on long trips away from home. I can't imagine Chrysler building their own supercharging network. Could they possibly partner with...

    2017 Chrysler Pacifica (Minivan) PHEV 30 mile AER

    It looks like it could be a great car for our family. We've been wanting to replace our aging Toyota minivan for some time but Model X just doesn't fit the bill. Not as practical and way too expensive. Does the Pacifica Hybrid qualify for carpool lane stickers?

    Post pics here of your wrapped or custom painted Tesla

    Back in early 2013, Chilton quoted me around $14k for a full repaint or $8k for exterior surfaces only. You can probably get it done for cheaper but the paint quality may not be as good.

    Clipper Creek - Excellent Customer Service

    Clipper Creek has been around for some time. They used to provide charging stations for the Tesla Roadster. In my experience, their products are excellent and trouble-free. I installed their LCS-25 EV charger in our driveway over 3 years ago and it's been flawless.

    How often do you get ignored by Model S owners

    Oy I think you meant to write “No Clue” but auto-correct messed it up… I rarely see Roadsters these days. I had one on order but I cancelled when Model S was announced. It would have been Electric Blue of course.

    Is deep blue metallic really the new name of Ocean Blue?

    The one from Sweden is a wrap (Hexis metallic blue). The one from the Tesla web site is Photoshop (ie. not real). The other ones are pictures of the actual Deep Blue color.

    The MC Red is stunning. By far the best color offered by Tesla.

    David Silverman, president of American Atheists on CNN with Tesla

    I would advise non-believers to stay away from religious discussions, especially online. If your view is that death is real and that life is short, why waste your valuable time arguing with people who believe in after-life? They have eternity on their side, you don’t.

    Why do we even have threads about religion on TMC? It never ends well. Plus, it's not like we're going to move the needle either way.

    It's already happened. Given the stupendous size of the universe, there's likely millions if not billions of other civilizations out there. I’m pretty sure that they couldn’t care less about any purported “holy books” from that tiny speck of dust called Earth. Most young civilizations like ours...

    Post A Picture Of Your Car Charging

    Charging at the new supercharger in Cabazon, CA on the way from the S.F. Bay Area to Indian Wells. I stopped in Gilroy, Harris Ranch and Tejon Ranch as well. In Tejon Ranch, avoid the "B" stalls. They seem to deliver only half the charging rate (170 vs 340 mph in my case).
