You could squeak by in a Model 3 without driving to fast and charge 100%. But since it’s a high paying job. Get a Model S with 400+ range and some breathing room. For that kind of commute I’d much rather be in an S as well.
Well I may have to go that route but to answer your question...my aversion to stopping:
I’m already driving 4 hours a day, I have a high stress job (Hospital CFO), I drive home in an effort to see my young kids before they go to bed. I frequently go 3-4 days without seeing them because I leave before they’re up and get home after they’re asleep...so 15 mins on the way home is frequently the difference between seeing my kids or not. Not to mention, who wants to stop for 15 mins after the day I just described? You want to get home as soon as possible so I can workout, eat dinner, shower, and then bed. I just don’t have much time in my life. Can I stop? I suppose yes but I’d rather have a plug and charge during the day lol.
You'd think it'd be a breeze to make it work but unfortunately there's no usable breaker boxes anywhere near the parking lot. There's two in the area with the closest being ~50 yards away and requiring tunneling under asphalt and sidewalk.
using SuperChargers on a daily basis is bad for the battery.
I'd still rather have a helicopter for that commute!
If you go this route you may as well install a Tesla Wall Charger. The mobile connector is $310 (including a 14-50 adapter) and a Wall Charger is $500. At some point Tesla will enable promised features and you should be able to remotely control charging - you will need WiFi to that spot of course. You can also look at other options such as the JuiceBox, etc.I think what I'm going to end up doing is getting the 240v installed at any cost (even if I pay for it myself). I will have the outlet installed inside an electrical box (under lock and key) that will also house an additional charging cable. The cable will stay plugged in. So when I arrive, I'll unlock the box and plug in.
Another thing to be aware of is poachers, if you really need to get charged to get home. What happens when someone comes and parks at the charger for six hours while his buddy gives him a ride to the nearby golf course and they do an 18 and some drinks? (Yes, it has happened!)
Its probably not an issue if you have controlled parking access, but if you don't have that, you might want to go the chargepoint route(which I think allows for identity-controlled charging), or an RFID based charger.
Of course, you can't really control any of this if you just supply 240V outlets.
Good point about the mobile connector! Maybe the play is to SC until I have a definitive answer from Corp on the charging stations.If you go this route you may as well install a Tesla Wall Charger.

I'm 6'2" with a 32" inseam. I find the underthigh support to be fine, which is surprising considering that I often find this lacking in most cars.
So definitely depends on how it fits you.
Yeah, which is why I wanted to sack-kick Elon after his idiotic claim that more adjustments = worse
IDK. Good seats don’t need a lot of adjustments... and all of the adjustments I’m the world don’t help a bad seat.
Tesla seems to have done a great job selecting seats. Firm, supportive, comfortable... sporty but not huge bolsters that hold you in. Supports a range of body styles.
Could there be a few more adjustments? Sure! But overall... I think they did great.
