    QuickJack (QuickJack - Car Lift for your Home Garage or Shop) has been mentioned in a few jacking threads here but so far has not made a model with sufficient jack point spread to accommodate the Model S. I've been waiting patiently as they upgrade their collection, but their longest EXT model is still 4-5" short (although it has sufficient weight rating). But today I got an email from a VP there with drawings for a Tesla-specific model with sufficient spread, and he says it is 90 days out and will be announced soon. If true I hope to get a set soon and will report back here. No affiliation -- I have been trying to put together a compact and low-cost 4-wheel lift for some time now and this design fits my space constraints and doesn't require permanent mounting.

    Very interesting. Just out of curiosity, do you happen to know the distance between the jack points. Im supprised the long version comes up short. I have had some large pickups on an older quickjack.

    How much does the lift travel when you lift? I only have 6" to spare in front of the car and it looks like the QuickJack uses more than that.

    Answering my own question, they call it radial lift and the car moves about 13 inches.

    I'd definitely be interested in one if they have a Tesla-specific model.
