    Do any of you here have a small one car garage you've done something with? I've got a small cape cod style house and a semi-attached one car garage. In the process of moving stuff out of it to try and test if I can summon in.

    Yes - Iron Gate Motor Condos. We were the first buildout completed about 3 years ago and we love it. There is a C&C this Saturday. PM me if you would like to meet up and I can give you a tour of our garage. Home | Iron Gate Motor Condos

    Some neat garages there. Mine is probably just long enough to take my upcoming Model S. But it is full of bicycles and gardening equipment so the S will have to sit out on the driveway.

    Not much to look at yet. I'm just happy I was finally able to clear it out enough to fit the S inside!

    Now, does anyone know of those little ramps that you can get for garages to smooth out the gap between the slab and my driveway? Summon hits the 2" lip and tries to push through, then quits. Summon out was fine this morning.

    What about pouring a small concrete ramp?

    Yeah, had that thought. I actually tested the other day with putting a 2x3 where that ramp would go. My garage door wouldn't stay closed with it there, so I need to look into adjusting it.

    LOL
    When I get my P100D it'll be my fastest car!
    F430 & C7 Vette both are 3.8 0-60... slow :)
    For me the Tesla is a different kind of experience. I still enjoy the others for different reasons.
    The 2 old Vettes have interesting stuff like Fiber Optics in the 68 to show all your bulbs are working.
    Each has a different exhaust sound, the Tesla is gonna seem weird since I love exhaust sounds. The Vettes have the Deep Growl, the Ferrari has that F1 style scream. The Tesla I'd imagine is gonna have a PWM windup??? Depends on the Carrier frequency they use. Test Drive is 2 days away & then I'll place my order that day once I'm sure. 99% sure now.

    Mine sounds like a turbine spinning up ... but you have to listen hard to hear it, so mostly its just "stealth mode"
