    I know this is a strange question. My Model S lease is up next year and I'm thinking of the Model X just because it's bigger and seems a little more luxurious if that makes sense. However, Tesla seems to have marketed the X toward women and I don't see many men in my area driving the X. I, of course, want to look masculine in my new car. :) So, are there any guys out there driving the X and do you still feel manly? :)

    22” black wheels, red calipers, and set your suspension to very low. You’ll be fine. ;)

    Lol... it's all how you feel... if you think it's a 'girly' car, nothing we can do. :D I love it for the space, height, and speed. I think of my X as the new truck: I can see everything in front of me, and those 150's better not want to drag. :cool:

    Do they make those 22's in all-season or do you pop them off in the winter?

    I take our trash cans up in my X. How's that for manly?

    Seriously, though, I'm driving a loaner S at the moment and have hit my head twice getting in and am completely underwhelmed by it in every way other than the sunroof. Go with the X.

    Get a P100D and leave all those "manly" cars in the dust! It can beat a Lamborghini Aventador in a 1/4 mile race.

    Seriously though, I disagree with the premise here that a Model X is feminine. I haven't seen any of this marketing towards women that you speak of. It's a versatile car - it can be used for family, it can be used for cargo, it can be used for towing, etc. Don't let one of its many uses blind your opinion of it.

    I drive our Model X, and the wife will be driving a Model 3 relatively soon. Haven't really considered anything gender related about either.

    I drive one every day. It's a better car for the windshield and headroom and ease of entry. Never had anyone calling it a feminine car so far.

    I've always been an SUV guy and wanted the extra storage for bikes, etc. Plus, at 6'2", I do like the internal headroom and being able to see over traffic in front of me (though autopilot's radar seems to do a better job at that than I do!)

    One of the main reasons I'm in a X is because I'm 6'7, 265lbs. I need the shoulder and leg room.

    I have yet to be called effeminate for driving a X :)

    A manly Model X at Gifu Hashima supercharger (Japan). Choose black wheels and set the suspension to low or very low. You are all set.

    I am a guy who owns a Model X but I’m gay so I’m not sure how you count that.

    And how precisely is Tesla 'marketing Model X toward women'? They don't advertise, so I'd say it's a figment of your imagination. '-)

    Anyway, my Model X P100D goes from 0-60 mph in 2.9 secs. It's manly enough all right...
