    If there's a newspaper in the car, check the sports page. You may be able to make some money betting on the outcome of future games. :)

    Take that, you naysayers and shorts! Tesla came out with the Model 3 at least a month ahead of schedule! :)

    With attention to detail like that, your attending officer has a bright future with the force.

    To even say Model 3 by accident means he knows at least something about Tesla.

    After the crash your car is a bit smaller. You can understand the confusion...

    I wonder if the officer who typed up the report is a reservation holder and it was a Freudian slip....

    I beat a speeding/reckless ticket in Virginia because of an officer's scatter-brained paperwork writing.


    Said I had brown eyes and hazel hair. When I pointed it out, the judge rolled her eyes and dismissed my ticket.

    :cool:

    In his defense, from certain angles the Jaguar F-type can look like a Model S. Same thing with a certain Maserati model.

    Did the accident happen while you were travelling at 88 mph?

    So your future self ordered the top-of-the-line configuration with the gull-wing doors and 1.21 gW inverter?

    you know... this brings up an interesting point. I wonder how long it would take to fix a possible future (2017-early2018) crashed model 3.... I bet you'd be without the car for months...

    I have the first Model 3 unintentionally totaled by September 18th. Then the fun will come trying to get a replacement and dealing with insurance.
