    I noticed that too. The Wright Bothers were the others mentioned by Capt Lorca, along with Musk and Cochrane as pioneers of space
    Elon Musk gets a nod as a space pioneer from ‘Star Trek: Discovery’

    Ironically, this ad features Teslas as the very first cars they show but then omits them from the list of manufactures that they rattle off later in the ad.

    A red Model S was on Curb Your Enthusiasm last night (actually two, since they showed both post-facelift and pre-facelift versions as the same car). Larry David borrows Ted Danzen's Model S and gets in trouble for beeping the horn at a cop.

    Hilarious episode, do you think they used two different Tesla's on purpose?

    In S4E2 of The Flash titled "Mixed Signals" there's a scene where a Model X is being controlled by a Meta. They removed the badging from the car. They also show the car peeling out with their own custom CID.

    One of the doctors in the new show "The Good Doctor" drives a Tesla.

    On Twitter, Harry Shearer made a comment about Tesla and it's stated range. He is the voice of Mo and Ned Flanders on The Simpson's and I know "Bart" also drives a Model S.

    Not an actual Tesla sighting but, a name drop in, of all places, Jeremy Clarkson’s Celebrity Face Off interview in Amazon Prime’s “Grand Tour” Season 2, Episode 3: the guests Hugh Bonneville (of Paddington and Downton Abbey fame) and Casey Anderson (naturalist from Montana) both talk about being in Tesla Coffee Clubs after Hugh mentions how he got a used Tesla Model S while his neighbors have top-of-the-line Teslas. As to be expected, Jeremy’s reaction is to pretend to be falling asleep. :)

    Lovely video!
    I have that same misaligned trim on my right rear door. Going to see if they can align it better next time it's in for service.

    LOL, I noticed a few issues with his Model S when he showed it to me when he got it (before I bought my Teslas), but he did not notice any of the things I saw, like the trim alignment, so I have never mentioned it. No reason to take away from his enjoyment of the car as once someone points things out you can never unsee or unhear them :).

    It's like your baby. You don't see the imperfections, only the beauty.

    It's in the hand-finishing, I guess. I've had mine for 2 years and haven't worried about it. But I'm going to ask if they can try to align it better. They seem to be getting the hang of it now with the Model 3 at least.
