So the customization on this MS was the pop-up projector and the license plate blinder? Does anyone know if anything else was done to that car?
I guess he's getting really serious about it now. He showcased another scent on Letterman a few years ago.
While I'm not a professional auto detailer, a fundamental rule to keep in mind is that if you want to mitigate scratches you...
Cool... I can see you really like your cars red. That's two-for-two Teslas that are red..
Great summary Doc.
That would be amazing if your car can be saved. Looking forward to hearing more.
Too bad the tow truck driver didn't listen...
I finally saw my first Model S sighting which turned out to be 3 over an 8 day period:

I can't recall other cars except the McLaren F1 that actually have a second set of calipers.
I wonder if by making the parking brake...
What do you mean, is it that restrictive?
I'm close to putting down a deposit and it will be for the Sport version. I'm budgeting up to $120k and just waiting for hopefully an AWD version...
Ah that makes a lot more sense. If you look closely at the pictures I attached earlier you will see that there is no mechanism to manually release...
Are you suggesting that the inner most side latch is a regular trunk latch while the outer one is a safety latch? Is there a difference?
When I visited the Red Beta S at the Toronto tour it looked like it could only be open from the inside via the touchscreen. There was no handles...
Exactly. That's an excellent idea.
Here are two pics I captured of the rack mounts:
Interesting thing about the roof rack. I was at the Toronto event on both Saturday and Sunday, I even took a picture of an attachment point with...
Awesome, I'm there.
Jaff, let us know if there are any particular photos you want us to take or if you have any specific questions. Hopefully at...
Yes you are right but since Mercedes has unfortunately been refreshing their line up with LEDs to replace the fog lights at the bottom that...
No problem, centrifugal forces will take care of that. :smile:
Polycarbonate. They're Dvinci Forgiato Radurra wheels. http://www.ohgizmo.com/2006/12/06/the-dvinci-forgiato-radurra-see-through-rims/
What about something like this?
Or just make them go over the 21" Lorinster wheels.
Yes I think it is item #11 from your chart. I'm just referring to the fact that on the inside-facing portion of that disk is says "TESLA" on it.
Wicked find, thanks for posting.
Did anyone notice the rear disk brake with "TESLA" on the inside portion. Why would they do that?
Yes you're right dpeilow; I believe Fisker is using in-wheel motors from a military application (can't remember the name at the moment). PML...
Yeah sorry about that. I'm in the process of catching up and in my excitement I hadn't seen the other discussion or the fact that someone had...
If anyone had noticed from the Swedish video, I hope the CHMSL will be much wider than that. I'm nitpicking of course.
Oh I hope this remake doesn't happen.
The Roadster would be good, so would a Pagani Zonda R.
My top pick would be the electric Mercedes SLS....
Model S settled in / behind the scenes.
$49,000 paint job!!!???
Thanks for the redirect. That custom Twilight Red is gorgeous; just when I though I was getting sick of red in general for cars (had 2 and...
What about EP and VP from the Roadster Program? Or does alpha and beta come before the two?
That sure is a neat way of marking ones food :)
Cool pic. Any idea where those two were being unloaded from? If confirmed, I'm surprised / impressed that Tesla would fly gliders in from across...
It had cost $500,000 to design the current headlights, not including the requirement to crash test for certification and all.
Another first??? - Interview from the engine bay of car...
All very good questions / points.
Where did you hear that the battery pack is suppose to add structural integrity to the car? My thinking at this...
A neat video shot in my current city of residence - Mississauga, Ontario, Canada; a suburb to the west of Toronto.
Jaff, I'm assuming...
Part 2 has been posted; A Q&A with Hans.
Is that the same Toronto car that was on top of the tea cups last year?
Watching the video TEG posted the first time made me think the car could move on its own. :wink:
Here's another video with the car inside the...
Yeah I just read that article yesterday - pretty interesting, not much new information that this forum has already captured, nice background...
Wow, congratulations everyone!!
Wait, web stats even has info on the type of computers people are on? That's new to me.
Hey thanks, it works!!
I guess this was a very recent update because I had started another post in the video section a moment ago and it...
I have no idea how I missed this - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=07ZtB1p2ySE.
(part 2 next week)
Update with Part 2:
Are these new specs regarding Model S:
Wow, great videos Bob thanks for sharing.
I never realized how noisy the S was but I guess it should be expected in a pre pre-production model....
Oh the irony... :tongue:
How about downloading the video via FinalGear, you'll need torrent software though....
