I wonder if her insurance carrier knows that she's renting the vehicle out on a short term basis?
Get Around is a company that provides the infrastructure for peer-to-peer car rentals, sort of like ZipCar, but you can participate on either side of the rental. As I understand it, they provide the insurance and the hardware that lets renters you approve unlock your car with their smart phone.
I was contacted by one of the principals who wanted to borrow our J1772-to-Tesla adapter to show a Roadster charging from a GE Level J1772 charging station at CES. I have no connection or direct experience with the company.
Ahh, thanks for the clarification Tom...I was under the impression that the gal was a one-off, everyday Roadster owner. :redface:
I think the GetAround business model does make it easy for "run of the mill" car owners to offer up their cars (even exotics) for occasional rentals.
They advertise that they offer their own insurance, so I guess you are covered there. I don't know if the Roadster owner is involved with the company in some way.
Someone going by the same first name seems to do support on their forum, so I am guessing that the Roadster owner works for the company...
I think the Tesla is available to get them some attention. You are renting a moving billboard!
Tire replacement alone would cut into the $25/hr.
There's a Service Advisor named Jessica at the NY store ...
Edit: Though looking at the thread, it looks like this Jessica is in Cali, so maybe not ...
My understanding is that she's a co-founder of the company.
Hmm... Owner is said to be "Jessica Catherine", not "Jessica Scorpio", so I am left wondering. Maybe the owner doesn't work there, is a different Jessica or someone is using a pseudonym.

Perhaps this is a relative: Hank Scorpio - Simpsons Wiki
Make sure to check the trunk before you rent it!

Funny coincidence that they have "NYC" in their random license plate.

Well this Roadster sure "Gets around"...
Seems it may be an old Toronto store demo car, now sporting California plates, but available for rental in Portland, Oregon...
