I drove a Tesla Model s recently and thought oppo may want to hear my thoughts. Of course you have nothing better to do than read the musings of a fellow driver, right?
I didn’t before, but I now love NASCAR. Over the past couple of years, I’ve had the good fortune to hang around some of the finest engineers, builders, crew chiefs, and mechanics in all of NASCAR. (Plus one middling PR drone.) What I have learned about the science, engineering, and technology required to make a stock…
Tired of the same old Chevy, Toyota and Ford donning their cowboy hats and redneck shirts? Let’s add some ‘extras’ to NASCAR.
Teslas are getting fairly common in Australia, but I think this is my first D.
The past couple weeks have brought us a slew of awesome developments in electric vehicles - Faraday Future’s big ‘reveal’ (OK - not awesome), VW’s Budd-e, and awesomest of all; The 2017 Chevy Bolt. Its 60kWh battery pack, 200hp electric motor, and 200+ mile range are impressive and to-date unheard of stats for a…
The overall shape had me suspicious, but I was withholding judgement until I saw one in person. They’re pretty awkward looking IMO. Excellent photography disguises the proportions in press photos - IRL they look like a model S someone jammed a straw into and puffed up until it was ready to burst.
Caitlin is coming to deliver the D
No seatbelt height adjusters? What is this, 1984???? (10:38 in the video if it doesn’t autoplay)
Tesla is offering free home/office test drives all this month. You can sign up via their website. I have a date with the P85D this thursday
A lousy picture of an amazing thing: Tesla Autopilot in action!
This made my evening. I mean, everyone has thought about flapping the gull wings up and down on a car, but Tesla actually did it. And they set it to music with a bunch of lights as well.
Gotta love a bit of humour in car companies!
Tesla Motors has sent emails to all owners of their Model S sedans after an owner in Europe had his passenger seatbelt disconnect from its base. According to the email, Tesla states the seat belt “was not properly connected to the outboard lap pretensioner.”
Was out walking the other day, spotted these two parked besides each other. One is not quite like the other..
I’ve been very curious to see real life scenarios of the autopilot in action. This video really hits home because I have this happen a lot because I’m in NJ and it is full of bad drivers from NJ, NY and PA. I highlight PA because the two that cut me off today were both from PA.
It is the 21st century people. The age of the internal combustion engine is coming to an end and so is the age of driver operated cars (at least that is what the media wants us to believe). But are we really moving to a greener and more efficient future? And which is the better way to go to get to that new future…
yep, seems so indeed.
In a recent collum for Road and Track, former Car Exec and champion of the Volt program Bob Lutz outlined why Tesla is doomed to fail. Lutz cited “bleeding cash, securitized assets, and mounting inventory”, as well as falling oil prices, the Tesla store model (“When I came to BMW in the Seventies, it had five factory…
I was driving home today and came upon a Tesla Model S 85 going the same way as myself. We got to a four-way stop and he was a car behind me and to the left, and the driver decided to reverse. Right before he started backing up (only about a foot or two, not sure why he moved), I noticed a set of small white LEDs come…
