Did you do the secret Tesla wave?
Do we have a secret Tesla wave?
We should start one, like the Mason's handshake?
You probably want to say "bye bye oil" ;-)
If we get off oil we might live longer and prosper … so adopting a Vulcan hand wave would seem logical.
Nice touch adding the Tesla logo to his uniform! Before we shake however you must rub your feet on the carpets surface for a shocking effect!
But .. there might be a flaw in this plan .. as I've just unearthed the pic below. Some say he acts like he might be from another planet, others say that his birth certificate is not pure. Being a Brit, I am unsure about these claims. But more to the point - did he have an assistant bend his fingers into place before saying cheese .. ?
Here's a bunch of folks trying to invent the Tesla "T" wave......
The Sci-Fi connection
So, I had a great Tesla day on Sunday. Drove up Skyline Blvd to La Honda Rd to PCH up to the Presidio. Had brunch at the Presidio Social Club, got some great views of the GG Bridge and the bay, even did a quick drop-in at the Disney Family Museum Bookstore. Watched the sun set over the Pacific on the way home. 170 miles of Tesla bliss.
So, why am I posting here, in this thread?
Well, I passed 3 Model S's heading in the opposite direction on PCH. Not one of them waved back. I guess we don't call it the Secret Tesla Wave for nothin', eh?
Sorry, reading your post, only 1 thing comes to mind: SNL's "The Californians"

There are a few areas in Ca where the 90s are alive.
that picture is painful
Hey, there's more than a few moderators in there..... :wink:
I've owned a few cars in my life where other owners ALWAYS wave: a VW Bug in college, a couple of Corvettes, Porsche 911 (only about 1/2 of 911 owners wave back) and a motorcycle. I know that Jeep Wrangler owners almost always wave, there's probably more examples out there. I've owned a Model S since July (P85D coming in a couple of weeks!), but I've been surprised that Tesla owners don't want to wave. I'm in South Florida, and see 1-2 Teslas every day, not a single wave ever. Why not us? We're sharing a much more unique experience....maybe we can convince everyone that it somehow extends your range
I've found it difficult to make eye contact with the other Tesla driver because the windows are fairly dark--and that probably goes double in Florida where most windows are tinted.
Tooted and waved at another Model S on Merivale Road last night. Guy looked a little surprised.
Living in this area we see so many other Tesla's that it is not surprising most of them are simply unaware of any 'special' connotations. Perhaps we need a secret sign on the car - so if you see it coming you know the driver is a part of the 'brother/sisterhood'
I was thinking of something like a yellow dot in the top corner of the windshield, or perhaps the TMC logo as a sticker on the inside of the glass. If you see the marker, you know to wave...
Awesome idea! We'll need to get 3" Red Tesla "T" or TMC ogo stickers that you put on the top driver side corner of the windshield!
+1 I usually at least lift my hand from the steering wheel for a "low-five" kind of wave. I honestly can't see into the car well enough to tell if they return it.
I wave at fellow Tesla owners all the time...it is a little disappointing though that some Model S drivers don't even know that the Roadster is a Tesla...
