    Has anyone here tried this service? If I google Rent A Tesla I get links to www.turo.com

    I know there was supposed to be a service from Tesla in the distant future, but currently this seems to be the only way to get money from owning the car.

    But it seems a shame to take a new car without a scratch and let some schmo drive it away from me...

    The other option is to wait until the car has lost it's initial appeal and buy one used. Not gonna happen when the new one's always have such better tech than the used ones.

    But it's sitting in the driveway for days at a stretch, renting seems good for everyone. Has anyone got a story?

    Most non commercial vehicles spend 95% of their time parked. Very little time actually on the road.

    Putting them into a rental service that covers their costs is the holy grail of ownership.
