    You first! I don't want to be the one to test the conductive properties and insulation of a Model S.

    No thanks. Frying a cell phone is one thing. Frying an EV is a bit more difficult to forgive.
    Tesla Coil Safety

    If I were to do it, I'd probably have a few grounded antennas 10 feet from the coil, and the car about 60 feet from the coil. Put the coil directly in line with the car, and shoot with a low aperture.

    I wonder if one should ground the body of the car, too.
