    I've been watching a lot of the "ludicrous mode" videos and I cannot wait to share the same experience with friends and family. If not for the pure enjoyment of watching them freak out but also to showcase how fast electric cars can go.

    Without a doubt I'm taking my MOTHER on the first ride. Picture the typical Greek mother from "My Big Fat Greek wedding" and you've got my mother. She's going to freak out and start screaming and hitting me on the arm or leg to stop or slow down. We'll then laugh uncontrollably for the next 10 minutes and she'll say "you're crazy and then say she wants one too!." I cannot wait for that moment.

    And then, just somebody i meet first :).
    Most possible are my sport buddies when we are going to the sport competition. I think we will take my car then :).

    I'll take the CEO of Volkswagen, Mercedes or BMW with me, so that he can enjoy all those admiring thumbs up from their cardrivers during our autobahntrip.

    I'm hoping this means you're a photographer.

    Maybe my wife. :p

    It'd either be our best friends, or a colleague, depending on timing.

    Yes, yes it does. Especially when they don't show up (which seems like half the time).

    I'm guessing it will be one or both of my maniac boys, since they are both more excited about the car than I am, and are both adrenalin junkies who will appreciate that acceleration ;-)

    Other than my husband, probably whoever ends up asking. I look forward to my dad getting a ride, but he lives further away.

    My wife, of course, along with our (by then) nearly 5 year old, then my sister and brother-in-law followed by a buddy from work.

    I'll just stop at one of the dealerships in the area and see which salesman who knows nothing about EV's would like a ride.
    Then after the Model 3 wows him I'll see if he wants a ride to the Tesla store nearby to fill out a job application:)

    I love the videos of people reacting to insane mode. I look forward to making my own with my wife, my son who will be 16 and my friend Charles who has a classic red jaguar convert able. First ride on the tesla roller coaster.

    Friend, if these threads feel off-topic....we have a long 18 months ahead of us.

    But, haha, I enjoy these chats. It's a little bit surreal to be living in a time like this, so of course we'll chatter on about whatever. :D

    My wife, of course! But no food, drink or makeup allowed in the passenger compartment of the car. :eek:

    I'm planning on giving my first Model 3 to my mom (if she'll accept it), so hopefully it'll be her in a surprise drive.

    Aside from my immediate family, it would have to be my Dad. He's probably not going to buy another car ever as he is 84, but I'm sure he will be interested in the Model 3. He came with me to a Model S test drive but we didn't get to really lay on the pedal at all.
