"No, no, no, no, no, this sucker's electrical, but I need a nuclear reaction to generate the 1.21 gigawatts of electricity I need."

If you know those lines, you probably know what's in my frunk...

Oh, I work at Universal (there are three of four of us here with Teslas) and we have some odd BTTF items around - not screen used or anything, but from some promotional stuff or toys that we've partners with in the past that I've come to acquire.

My license plate is this:

Let's get nerdy: You could easily fit a RTG, which is basically a nuclear powered battery which you can get a few hundred watts of _continuous power for decades_ without refueling. It could mean the Model S never ever needs to be plugged in, as the battery charges at a low rate 24/7 for it's entire lifetime. Also the waste heat would be recycled for winter use, making winter range no longer an issue.

Sad to think that in 2 years, we should have Mr. Fusion (tm) and be able to do the Hovercraft conversion. At least we are driving on electricity. The masses are still stuck on fossil fuels ;)

I've already put down a Sig reservation on the Hovercraft retrofit.

What about the invisibility option - like the car in one of the James Bond movies?

Adding invisibility would minimize the inconvenience of having other drivers and pedestrians staring at the car and taking pictures while we're driving by...

Well Mercedes already have that option

That's a pretty cool visual trick with the LED's... making the car invisible, yes indeed - reminds me of that Aston Martin Vanquish (nicknamed the "vanish") in this Bond scene (at about 3 minutes into the video):

Might result in more fender benders though!
