Aha! I see it!
I guess I'm just not obsessive enough in hunting down pictures.
Is there a prize for this - signed photo?:biggrin:
Dang it, I was just at the menlo park store, I should have looked.
OK, my first thought was "David Vespremi", but that seems too obvious, and I can't imagine that you would ask us to guess "who the next driver will be" if it was too obvious... Sooo, I'm going out on a wild limb, and I'll guess... George Clooney?
Maybe the next person to drive Martin's Roadster is he-who-shall-not-be-named.
I didn't want to be too controversial. :tongue:
Racer X maybe?
Any chance you could the Governator in your car?
Then convince him to do something about getting rid of those silly clean air stickers and replacing with a cool license plate.
Go Racer X!
are you saying that it's going to be Matthew Fox driving your car next? Get LOST! :smile:
All the best,
Oh, come on. We all know it's really you in that costume.
Funny experience today:
So I am sitting at work today and two guys come by and say:
"Did you get your Tesla!?!" to which I reply
"Because there is one parked right outside your window!"
I turn around and look out the window of my office (on Lytton Ave in Palo Alto) and there is Martin's Tesla. LOL. It's a small world. He was parked directly outside my office (across the street).
I headed down to take a closer look but Martin got there first and cruised off (silently). I resited the urge to yell to him.
It's been all about Tesla today since I then met my wife at the MP store to take another look at colors since we have decided to change off of our original choice (Signature Green)...
Sorry I missed you, Jon! I would have stopped had you yelled :wink:
And the answer is...
Well that sure is better than George Clooney.
Thanks Martin for being such a good sport!
Seconded on the officially jealous, but definitely really nice to see.
TEG (and Martin) - how does it compare with other sports cars you have driven?
It is different. More subtle, sublime, and poised.
Most other sports cars I have driven feel more unruly, boisterous, and raucous.
Some people will miss the wild excitement of a car that makes you work harder for your reward. In the end, though, I think most people will realize that this is the way you really want it to be.
Sounds like characteristics that would make for a nice GT. (Here's hoping that Model S is more Lotus Evora than BMW 5 Series...)
Isn't this feeling at least partly due to current not-so-outrageous acceleration?
I'm sure when dt1.5 arrives that 0,68g acceleration will give it completely new character. Dr. Jackil and Mr. Hyde?
I'm pretty sure that powertrain 1.5 will have that same effortless feel. Motor Trend did a review of the Roadster (he tested the car with the old transmission which provides the same acceleration as 1.5 and the transmission with the car locked in second) and he described its acceleration like "a trap door being released below you" and "it's teh least drama I've ever felt" and " no shuddering, shacking, noise, ect."
I got a ride in an AC Propulsion Ebox (0-60 7 seconds) and the only way to describe its acceleration would be marvelous.
Back to the topic:
We should've known TEG was gonna drive the car since he post any responses to Martin's question!
