Quirky and charming.
Love the laughing monkey at the end. :biggrin:
Ha! Cute. I cringed at the way he slammed the frunk lid down at the beginning though.
I think we all did.
Great review! Except for slamming the frunk.... :scared:
What fun! I laughed numerous times with him.
It made me glad that I have one--it is everything he said.
Except I don't have a SuperCharger in my garage...
("Or so I've been told, officer")
Good fun, thanks for posting!
I shall miss it terribly
Aside from the horrifying slam of the frunk. A good cup a tea is all that is needed.
Loved the "Point and whoosh" reference. As for slamming the frunk, (cringe), considering he's from the UK should that be slamming the froot?
Ooh. Good one!
You got me curious and I researched where the description of boot and trunk came from. This article explains it.
World Wide Words: Boot and trunk
Thank you, and sorry!
Thank you, SmartElectric, for sharing my Model S video review for Luxurious Magazine on this forum. As a non-Tesla owner who was lucky enough to have one on test for six days, I'm sorry I made everyone cringe by slamming the bonnet (or should that be Front Trunk?).
Mind you, it sounds even more alarming when you're inside the frunk and someone else slams the lid on you.
The video is an all-too-brief account of my time with the Model S, but the full written review (a mere 4,200 words) will be published shortly on Luxurious Magazine.
As you can tell, I absolutely loved it and now view the world of cars as being divided into two categories: Teslas and everything else.
I'd be very grateful if anyone who is on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn or Google+ wanted to share the video, as it will (I hope) introduce other people to the wonder of Tesla - and the more of them there are, the better the world will be.
I'm on Twitter at @JonBonViveur and will be Tweeting about Tesla as often as I can.
One day, I hope to be as fortunate as you and own a Tesla, too.
Best wishes from England
PS: Still haven't heard back from The Pope.
I was just wondering about that very thing. Do European owners actually call it the froot? I would.
The monkey at the end was a bit on the creepy side though.
And if he thought the S85 was quick, I'm curious as to what he'd think about the P85D...
The S85 is quick! It's simply a "matter of degrees" when it comes to anything beyond a S85!
The English call the front hood the "bonnet" and the rear trunk is the "boot". So I doubt that "the froot" is the typical English term for the frunk.
And typical for us complicated Germans, we call the bonnet "Motorhaube/Motorraum" und the boot a "Kofferraum". So the frunk or "bonnoot" (?) would become something like a ..., no I don't really want to go there ;-)
Vorderraum? Maybe we could go with Vordere-Gepäck-Kabine. How crazy can we get it be?
Front + trunk => frunk.
Front + boot => froot.
But this is the modern world, as The Jam sang, and people are very ready to adopt words from other cultures. So it could be frunk or froot.
Great review but please dont slam the froot fronnet!
Considering the nice dimple I have on my froot fronnet, despite having been as careful as seems reasonable, I'm wondering if I should have just been dropping it all this time...? Anyone tried that? How bad/good can it get? Should we have a poll for how many have dimples in the group?
