I won't say that I speak for anyone else but myself (although I think I do), but watching that video made me feel old. In the past, when I test drove the Tesla, I felt the exact same way, but because I am an "adult" I didn't feel free to express myself like this boy, or as I might have when I used to be a child. I feel bad that I "held it in." This is an eye opener for me. I will be more expressive in the future.
I didn't know someone was taping my test drive last Thursday...
That was way too "F"ing funny!!!!!! LOL And yep that was the Tesla Grin.
I realize I am going to get all kinds of parenting advice, but... before you judge, we were only going down the block to drop off some boxes for recycling. We were only going between 20 and 30 mph. Why shouldn't my youngest enjoy the Tesla too? It wouldn't be fair or right to deprive her of this fun. Ok, now bring on the parenting advice, I'm ready.
I shortened the clip quite a bit, she said "Again" about 100 times.
Cute kid KGB.
My 7-year-old daughter loves the Tesla; the first time I took her for a long ride she told me that she has "the coolest dad in the world". We stick to the speed limits but it's still a thrill to her and she wants me or her mom to drive her to school in the Tesla every day. It's great to be a "Tesla Dad" :biggrin:
My parenting advice is to do this same ride with every kid in her neighborhood, school and dance class.
Then do their parents.
Found out today that the Tesla grin extends outside the car. I was in a convoy of twelve Teslas up in the hills of Hong Kong when a car pulled alongside. The lady passenger looked at me, and gave me the biggest, widest, happiest grin I have ever seen, accompanied by an energetic thumbs up.
Well the first is more than a grin, almost kinda scary. :frown: :biggrin:
The best Tesla grin video is surely this one:
The other day I was driving in traffic, and looked in the rear view mirror. The lady in the car behind me had this HUGE grin. Curious. I turned into the store parking lot and went inside; I'm pretty sure she didn't follow me... but when I came out she was standing beside my car. She must have circled back. She came over and asked to shake my hand. Holy cow; that's a first. I would have offered her a spin but unfortunately I didn't have time, but I did let her sit in the car for a minute.
@kgb That's great!
My friend Denis, and he was driving, he knew when it was coming:
Seems like this thread could use another grin.
My wife at a test drive event (I'd previously driven a friend's Tesla).
Ok, now I am super envious. Who's going to give me a ride in a roadster? Maybe next Teslive?
The same. Hope to have soon the Tesla grin.
