Niece of my mom's friend, visiting from Ireland.
Enjoyed a nice lunch in Cape May and the Roadster had about a dozen people walk by and take a picture this afternoon. We were across the street inside the restaurant and had a front row seat to the “commotion” the car caused. Not many Roadsters in Southern NJ (I’m not aware of any others in Cape May or Atlantic County).
I finally got one two weeks ago...as I am always too late.
Props to this guy.
Do you ever wonder what people do with these pictures of our cars?
I figure they share them with friends. That's probably what I would have in mind if it was me.
My brother in law is taken photo of my roadster when we were and vist them on estern
Perhaps I'm a little different from the average person on the street photographing Roadsters, but I keep 'em around and look at the photos every once in a while. Like this Roadster I saw in 2013, for instance. (It's branded Sun Country Highway, which is a bird-seed manufacturer that installs EVSEs at various businesses.) Sorry I couldn't find a pic of somebody taking a photo of a Roadster, but I'm a purist—I like my photos of Teslas to just be photos of Teslas, not other people milling about.
Well is has been three weeks with my Model 3 and I have yet to find people (besides the EV club) who seemed to have noticed it. Not the case with the Roadster as it still prompts a picture, thumbs up, or today Oh Look a TESLA!!!
By the way I now have 10 years of Tesla with my 2008 Roadster and 2018 Model 3.
Wish I had turned on the audio for this one. These guys in the SRT-4 were trying comically hard to get me to race... into traffic . Wasn't until I reviewed the dashcam footage that I noticed all the cameras out and waving around. Group in the Avalanche pulled up also with cameras blazing asking why I didn't race the guy.
Spreading the EV knowledge at a local car show tonight.
I went for a P3D test drive recently and was able to park my Roadster near the demonstrators in mall parking. Everyone I saw walk by it had their cameras out. Employees had never seen a Roadster in person before. Potential customers wanted to know about it and how it has held up. The employee who rode along with me on the test drive asked and was happily granted the opportunity to sit in and drive it a short distance. Said it made his entire week. Going to miss this car so much . P3D order is in... need another 4-door for the family.
I can't see it either.
@Tex EV you should do what we did. Build a bigger garage! I originally bought the Roadster to get by until our Model S was delivered. Now we're about to get a Model 3D and no way can I part with my Roadster. So... we're building a new garage.
Oops, hopefully this works. Was only able to get a photo when nobody was around, unfortunately (I know, missing the point of this thread).
A bigger garage is actually in the plans... but after the rest of the house is updated. Trying to find a way to have 3 cars, but there's no justification aside from me not wanting to let go.
Let's all be truthful, with the S, 3, X now available, there is very little rationality in keeping a roadster around.
They're faster, go further (ok, ok, except 3.0), more comfortable, more practical, have more embedded technologies and still have warranties.
Anyone wishing to be rationale about keeping a roadster has lost the battle before it starts!
You need to embrace your feelings if you're going to keep it. LoL
It was never ever about rationality.
But they don't have an open top! You have to keep your priorities straight, you know?
You forgot to measure the most important thing," Fun Factor". Just sayin.
I love getting the top open. The roadster is pretty sweet too.
It may not be practical or needed, as I am currently having fun with the Performance Model 3, but I am keeping the Roadster for now. It was the whole reason I bought a Roadster knowing that Model 3 was on the way. For weekends it provides the topless (@Xenius -- hopefully you'll drive the Roadster soon) and fun factor. And having one car from each generation provides a historical perspective to share with others. Fortunately, I have space for 3 cars.
