I was driving in Los Angeles last Wednesday, near LAX, and a black/tinted Tesla went blasting past me and exited an off-ramp, wow!

A couple miles later another, different, black Tesla came whipping up the on-ramp and went blasting past me and disappeared in traffic ahead, wow!

I transitioned to another freeway and Lo and Behold, I spotted a third black Tesla (again, a different car), I was able to drive past that one.

It was being loaded onto a flatbed tow truck, not wow.  It is a fine looking car, even on a tow truck.


I imagine that the DTDB (distancetodeadbattery) is rather less than the rated 265 miles between charges when driven aggressively by a maniac.

I continued putting down the road on EcoCruise, listening to soft Mantovani on Sirius and getting a nice nap.


The Tortoise and the Hare, all over again.

I like the tesla S.. the roadster had alot of design flaws that they have worked out. You could very well have seen one of the many on the road without the proper software updates since there isnt really many service shops.
