    to help me confirm numbers while I await delivery...
    would someone kindly measure on a Model S that has 19" tires and no air (or adjustable) suspension:

    the ground clearance, or height from ground to lowest point on car, under the nose ?

    also, the distance from the nose tip to the tires ?

    I thought I posted this back in 2013 but my search query doesn't seem to travel back that far in time?
    Anyway, I just measured my 2013 Model S clearance (standard suspension, 19") over the garage floor.

    Height (lowest point) 5.375" ± 0.0625
    Nose tip to front axle: 37" ±0.25"
    Nose tip to tire front : 23" ±0.25"

    Hope that helps.
