    It's the emotional state over proper grammar etiquette. At the end of the day he will be driving his x model

    Actually it is correct. Their: belonging to or associated with the people or things previously mentioned or easily identified.

    Does it really matter? Couple thousand difference by Model S or X will not create additional demand.

    Bigger update would.

    Beware inventory cars have free supercharging but some have no wheels!

    Presumably caught in the switch from the sonic grey to the two tone - one or the other must be missing from the code.

    I'm guessing he would ask to give up free supercharging in exchange for any wheels of your choice!

    What about a solar-powered car so I don’t need free supercharging

    I have a solar powered car. The panels on the garage roof charge the battery in my Tesla.

    A more direct solar car falls apart on physics.

    The best sun light at sea level (sun directly overhead) is about one kW per square meter. (A little more at altitude, but not much - sunlight in space at our orbit is about 1.3 kW per square meter.

    Good mass production solar panels are about 22% efficient. State of the art lab multi junction panels are somewhere in the low forties.

    A typical large car is about two meters by five meters.

    If you cover the entire surface with modern production panels, when the sun is directly overhead it'll produce 2.2 kW of power.

    EPA testing shows a modern Tesla needs around 10 kW at 50 mph in steady state...

    Oh, that's doable. The infrastructure involved will be pretty expensive, and the efficiency probably fairly low, but it's certainly an option. Until we have humans that don't need to stop for something to eat or drink or a restroom and have to drive for 8+ hours non-stop for some reason, I have trouble believing it's the most practical or cost effective solution - and it definitely won't be cheap or free. I'd rather have free Supercharging instead.

    If you're in that much of a hurry, why aren't you flying?

    Not in a hurry. For $100K I plan on living in my Tesla and being driven around in perpetuity

    Which reminds me I’d also like to request one of the seats be a commode

    With those figures in mind the only use for solar panels on a car is to keep the AC running on a hot day. At a guess the best you’ll probably get is somewhere in the region of 10-20 kW charge in a day. Still it’s a 10% increase in range.

    If it were me, I would cancel the Tesla order placed and I would start to look through website EV-CPO.com and find a model X you like in inventory and get the free supercharging.

    Did you order an inventory and cancel your custom order as well?
