    Hello,

    We're looking to purchase a Tesla S 60Kwh in Houston, TX and are having a hard time finding one to test drive...

    We're ready to buy - but not with out a test drive and it seems the longer we wait to hear back from Tesla in Galleria (Houston, TX) the more we're leaning towards getting an S550.

    If you have one and don't mind giving us a test drive - it would really help us in the decision.

    Mature 50s something buyer... (if that helps).

    Located in Sugar Land, TX but will drive within Houston area for the drive.

    (832)275-8925 - text please.

    You can thank your state legislators for that.
    Very difficult for test drives and sales.
    There are a number of Texas owners though that I am sure would be happy to help out.

    @Murtz: I sent you a text. If you can do Friday and don't mind an 85 kWh version, we can probably arrange something around lunch time around the CityCenter area (Beltway and Memorial). Bummer you just missed the Tesla sponsored test drive which was a few weeks ago now.

    If you're into a leisurely 200-mile jaunt (each way) you are welcome to test-drive our car in San Antonio. Saturday until 3 and Sunday after 12 work best. Let me know, we are just north of downtown.

    I just have to say that stephenpace, you go the extra mile in being a nice guy and allowing all of the prospective buyers to test your car! Me included! If it weren't for you, we wouldn't have made the final decision to purchase....now anxiously awaiting....factory is building my P85! Thanks again, @Murtz, hope you enjoyed the drive with stephenpace! :smile:
