    When I get too lost in the center console this or interior finish that, I find that looking at this picture helps me remember why I'm in it for the Model S. Maybe it will do the same for you.

    (My kid but not my pic. Thank you Photographer for taking the time to send it to me.)

    Thanks Trnsl8r. It sure does! (I was going to refer to you as "tranny" but thought better of it :wink:).

    Outstanding picture. Indeed, this young man will get to enjoy the fruits of Tesla's genius as he gets older. We will get to say we were first!

    Someone needs to lower the adjustable steering wheel -- he can't see the speedo! (or the road, but that's a separate issue :tongue:)

    Great pic.

    It was pretty hard to get him to sit still long enough to get this shot... didn't bother trying to get him from the front after that.

    ...Boo, it rotated...

    This is great stuff! Hopefully, EVs will be common place for these kids 10 or 15 years from now!

    Here are shots of my 5-year-old who has already sworn to drive nothing but electric and that too a Tesla when he grows up! :)

    My kids LOVE Tesla. They were totally hooked after we test drove a Roadster. The swag Tesla sent the past couple of years while we were on the waiting list helped, and they totally get the need for something other than carbon burning fossil fuels to power our transportation in the future. These were their happy faces when we saw the Beta in December:

    For some reason I saw your photo and instantly thought of this :-


    (ETA - do you have a face forward pic with the wording at the front also ..?)

    But I'm not sure the pictures of my kids help explain why I'm upgrading to the Performance model...
