Is this a new fad? Or is this normal behavior?
That's a easy one...bad behavior.
It’s not even plugged in.
If you're there first, there's no need to "block" the other stall.
That's just someone being phenomenally inconsiderate.
is this worse?
Geez, that Porsche really wants to be a Tesla.
Easy to fix. Just park sideways behind the Porsche and run the cable over.
No need to leave a note.
No note - but I did email the pic to Porsche asking if this was how they wanted their brand to be represented
no answer yet though, which is a bit rude really
That guy (or girl) is a noob asshat.
You want a response put it on Twitter and tag Porsche. Still doubt they respond, but much more likely.
Maybe that Model 3 driver is just a bad parker.
I would park right behind him and drag the cord over top of his car.
Cross post this to Model 3 sub-forum
Watching people park at superchargers, it never ceases to amaze me that with mirrors AND a backup camera, people are still hilariously bad at centering between two straight lines. On top of that, some of these people will exit their cars, see that the car is way over one of the lines, shrug, then walk away.
If people are thinking that he parked that way to prevent slower charging from a paired stall...it doesn't work that way.
The first person to a paired stall gets full current. The second person pulling in gets only what is left over from the first to arrive. As the first car begins to taper, then the 2nd person begins to get additional juice.
At least it’s a nice loooking Model 3, and that supercharger doesn’t look very busy!
Which supercharger was this at? I see MA plates on the model 3, but don’t recognize the location. Is this a new one?
 Just saw the rt 20 sign... must be the Lee supercharger. I never make it that far west! [/edit]
It's weird, but I still keep struggling with keeping the car parallel to the lines. I never had issues with that in old car (no camera or sensors, lots of glass in rear part).
Nobody ever does!!
Me too. I'm beginning to suspect that my back up lines aren't fully aligned with reality
I arrived at Kingman AZ the other day and there was a Tesla parked literally diagonally. The chargers are set up 123123, so it wasn't even someone thinking they were blocking a pairing! Worse, because it's only a six stall charger and two other cars were there, I had to park in a way that blocked two stalls in order for the cable to reach.
Of course the moment I sat down with my food, the guy left, making me look like the jerk Had to go run and move the car properly real fast.
Must be a former BMW owner :-D
