    How could you sleep in a car like this? Besides, just flip down the back seats and you could sprawl out in the back!

    Good thing this post.
    I did sleep in a 2010 Mustang in Grand Canyon a few years ago, not very pleasant.

    There a photo somewhere of a fully reclined Model S front seat.

    Sounds like a thinly veiled TEG request to me...

    More detail here: One part of our road trip regimen is the 'nap'. The passenger gets a good chance to nap, allowing him or her to be ready to take over driving. A nice flat reclining front seat obviously makes that a little nicer, although we have a running concern over safety (when reclined).
