While dropping my car off for service at the San Rafael location I walked around and found three roadsters which certainly seem lost.
They all have a lot of dirt on them.
Vins are 75 (in back, no roof), 718 (getaround), and 1218 (white)
2010 Fusion Red Roadster in Austin for rent by owner. **YOU MUST BE 30 OR OLDER AND HAVE A CLEAN DRIVING RECORD TO RENT** With zero tailpipe emissions, 0 to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds, the world's first rentable Tesla (and 1 of 1,500 in existence) will bring you to and from your destination quickly...
#75 is missing its Sig 100 plaque. How did the seats and rest of the interior look being exposed to the elements like that?
Same @TEG. That's so hard to look at but thanks for sharing @jaanton 😞
What's disconcerting is that if they're supposed to use these donors to harvest parts from, why would any of us approve the use of them; particularly the interior parts on #75 that the elements have clearly compromised? More importantly, again... THAT'S A SIGNATURE 100 so it doesn't deserve this fate. Honestly, none of them do. Colossal fail Tesla... SMH.
Before electric cars, we had this amazing technology called a tarp. It was used to cover things and protect them from the elements. Seriously. The next time you are there, cover it with a tarp for them from Harbor Freight or walmart for $4.
Definitely difficult to see Sig 75 like that. I’m happy to share that Signature 72 is living a very pampered life. lots of time in a garage, plugged in, under Tesla’s car cover, but looking fresh as ever when I bring it out. Photos are from summer 2021
Does anyone know which VINs were lost in the most recent fire at Gruber?
Pete said he’d reached out to all those whose cars had burned, as well as those with cars onsite; don’t know if he’s reached out to PEM owners or those with other components on-site - I’m assuming each burnt-up PEMs will be a bricked roadster eventually.
Tesla family and friends, I have some sad news to report about our friends at Gruber motors in Phoenix. I was scheduled to pick up my car there today after it had been in for service. I received an email message from Gruber early in the morning that unfortunately they had had a fire at their...
I have Roadster #633 and was poking around this site to learn more about the Gruber fire and then I see these pictures of trashed Roadsters and it makes me ill. I guess I mentally blocked out the fact that several Roadsters are going to perish - it's just math, but posting pictures is like watching endless Nightmare on Elm Street sequels. It just gets worse and worse. Is there a resource with a count of how many Roadsters have been destroyed? There were so few to start with!!!
