Will the Model S be your only car or will you have an ICE backup?
We're a two car family, so we have an ICE backup. Were I single, it'd be my only car.
Will the Model S be your only car or will you have another car?
If it is an ICE car will you use it as your backup for long drives?
Nope. We'll have an SLK roadster for our second car. Unless we have to haul crap, it'll work for long distance touristing. If we have to haul crap and it's too far for the S, then we'll swap cars with a friend for that trip.
I'm hoping to be able to replace the SLK with the Tesla Roadster 3.0.
Nope. I'm keeping the Suburban to tow the Airstream and for ski weekends (it's hard on the paint and the snow can get deep enough that 4wd is a must).
My other car will be my Roadster, the Model S will be my long distance back-up!
I need to decide what to do. I only have room to park 2 cars at the moment where I live. Looks like the Jetta might be finding a new home.
Looks like there are two identical threads. Can they be merged?
ICE backup - wife's Mini Cooper Clubman S; she says she'd not be able to drive the Model S anyway - too big for her...
We're keeping the 2008 Honda Odyssey for my wife. It does horrible on the fuel economy, but hauls 4 kids, two adults, and a costco trip with ease.
Now the Model X.... Hmmm....
My Model S will be my new daily driver. First time we've ever had more than 2 cars.
Keeping my '08 Odyssey for long-haul trips, Home Depot runs, etc. It will most likely be the car my (now 14-year-old) son eventually learns to drive.
Keeping the wife's '00 Lexus RX-300 until she finally figures out what she wants to replace it with. Given she's spent the past couple of years working on the IEEE P2030 smart grid standard, I'd like to see her choose an EV, but she's looking at Mercedes coupes right now.
My wife's car is a Toyota Corolla which we'll keep...but she has a work car so we won't drive it much...only to keep it from getting rusty and if the occasional road trip is too inconvenient for the Model S (which I expect to be very rare).
Currently my Roadster is my first car. When i will get my Model S, my Roadster will be my backup car.
Holy crap, that's an expensive backup! The Model S will cost more than my wife and I have spent combined on all cars in our 25 year driving histories.
Sorry, I accidentally posted two threads. Mods please tack this one onto the other one:
Will Model S be your only car?
To reply to my own thread:
We currently have a Roadster and a Prius.
I would get rid of the Prius except that we need a 2nd car that can carry 4 people on very rare occasions, I plan to do all family and long distance driving with the Model S, and the Prius may only be driven a few times per year.
We have a mini-van for long trips, which are not frequent. More importantly, I use it for trips to Lowes and Home Depot.
Somehow it feels like it's gonna be worth it.....:wink:
The roadster is currently my only car. The model s will take its place as my only car.
I have a '04 Chevy Classic I'll keep as a second car. I'll only use it when my wife and I both want to use a car at the same time, when I have to do "dirty" hauling, or on longer round trips that only last a week or two. I don't want to leave the Model S "home alone" for longer periods of time. For road trips where we'll be away for a month or more, we'll use the Model S.
