Some great photos. Thank you for sharing.
Amie and I had a great time meeting everyone.
The pictures look like a million bucks.
(give or take)
I love the Tesla "T" photo. Well done guys! Hope to participate next time.
Great day everyone, what an awesome way to showcase our supreme machines and raise awareness of the coolest EV on the planet. Looking forward to future events.

May 19 - I would truly love to be there. Only four days after delivery for me! But coming from Hingham, it's kicking up my range anxiety, as someone who has never had more than a test drive in the car of the future. Advice on how to make sure I get there and back in a reasonable amount of time? It's all new to me...
From Hingham to Newbury is 50 miles. The drive is about 50 miles, and another 50 home. This trip is safely inside the Model S range--normal charge for a 85kWh, range charge for a 60kWh if you want to be super careful. As a further anxiety mitigation, drive up early to the Joppa Flats center, plug in, and watch the enormous variety of seabirds on the bay. Bring your binoculars!
One thing I noticed from the inaugural drive is that I came in well under the rated use line. We had a few rocket launches here and there, but for the most part, it was smooth comfortable coasting that was very easy on the battery.

Great pictures above and the other ones that were posted previously-many thanks. The drive was indeed smooth, and easy and the battery-maybe a little too easy, due to the logging trucks and bikers. But now that you've seen that route, may I recommend it to you during a non-bike rush-hour time, such as a weekday, morning or early afternoon. Here's the route we did for those who made it and those who could not:
Leave Lexington Center on main street, passing the battle green, leaving it on your right.
Route 2A to Concord, through the national Park, Concord Center to Monument Street.
Monument Street past the old North bridge up until a stop sign at 225, turn left
225 hits a rotary in Carlisle, turn right, eat lunch at Fern's.
Head North on Lowell Road, left on Curve Street, eventually joins 225, take a sharp right.
Follow 225 all the way until a second stoplight, Powers road, turning left onto Powers road.
At the end of Powers Road, turn right, and then take an immediate left onto Shaker Street.
Find your way to Nancy's Airfield Café by way of Summer Street.
I'll post some pictures as soon as I can get to my computer instead of the cell phone.
As much as, at the Roadster Rally in NYC in 2009, I could just imagine and look forward to the day when more than a dozen MS's would cruise together near Boston, I can just imagine DOZENS of MS's cruising the Masachusetts shoreline next month.
We are still at the very beginning of something great. Let's really enjoy this moment in Tesla-Time.
Paul Revere was captured at this exact site 238 years and a few days before. Suffice it to say that these S's made it briskly to the Old North Bridge, without capture...
Lexington Center, where The rEVolution begins:
The First New England S-Fest begins to gather...
Now we know where Signature Red Comes from...
I think there's a how-to video here somewhere...
GQ Magazine, or on Furlough from nearby Concord State, hard to tell.
Consultation with a Regular.
Peace is made upon the bridge, not a shot is fired, the British surrender and Elon is King.
S's in a U, near the North Bridge.
Lunch at Fern's - perfect day.
Daffodils in yellow, Green, Blue, and Signature Red...
Motore Trend 11-12-12: "And it looks great, especially from the rear."
Three cheers for the Model S in Red, White, and Blue. Note that the saturation is not changed. This is Tesla, in Old Glory.
Nothin' but time on a Sunday Drive...
View from the front - those are all S's
Oops - the best laid plans...
Amie, Tesla CFO 2017
A Signature Moment.
A picture is worth a million words. And sometimes dollars.
News hits that the parcel shelf is available.
And suddenly, Chaos Abounds.
They, and we, are imagining what THEY will be driving...
Tesla Yoga becomes a sudden new trend.
Tesla's being put in the shape of a Trident Gum "T". Wait, that's not right..
Multiple Deductibles at Major Risk
Just sweet to look at.
Brian33, reflecting upon a Model S
This has never been done before. I mean, who would LET someone do this with these cars? Do not let Elon see this. We will all be grounded.
Treeva, ready to gun it.
Robert.Boston, Mayor of Natick, MA, 2017
The Tesla "T", eponymous in S's. (Daniel, this is amazing. Lest any of us doubt you again.)
It's a key party and owners claim any car before heading back.
A really nice day - "And so say we: Tap into America" (Ian Faith, 1985).
Thanks again to all for making it happen. Two for the road:
nice! great pictures and a great idea.
I think this is my favorite picture of a group of Teslas ever. Great job guys! Good job planning this Jim! Someday (when I purchase the Gen III), I hope to join you all.
Someone with a twitter account should tweet this picture with @ElonMusk and @TeslaMotors copied. Maybe they'll retweet it.
I just tweeted it @realbhuwan
just an update: @teslamotors retweeted and @elonmusk responded
Wow! That's awesome! I don't have access to twitter at work. What did Elon say?
