Well back from a successful week at Daytona with my team mate and I finishing in the podium at each of the 9 races… I’m tired…
Speaking of tires…. Yikes at least it was on practice. Michelin engineer worked out a solution (different construction tires)
Some oddities and interesting:
All wheel drive and 100% torque at 0 RPM provides great off the line performance.
especially at 176mph (and climbing)
There’s a lot that I love about electric cars but I’m not in the least bit interested in electric motorcycles. I’ll be dead or dangerous before ICE bikes are gone so will likely never be faced with the decision to go electric or give up riding.
Congratulations on your purchase!
Thank you John, love this Tesla.
Yup, me too. I picked up my Model 3 in March, just before the COVID lockdown.
Best commercial ever done in the USA.
Oh brother. And Jonas Salk probably drove and old Chevy.
We have had our Model Y since April and just love it. We have made two trips over 1,000 miles each and no problems with charging or anything else for that matter. No regrets buying an EV whatsoever.
Lots of positive responses from people we meet while out with it. Many questions and requests to see it up close. I have had two Corvettes over the last 20 years, so I use to questions but never expected it with a Tesla.
Continuing from the “upgrades” thread, I had one of these for a while when in school.
It was an absolute jewel and it had 4 on the tree
This isn’t it–just a YT picture. Mine was gray with deep red leather interior that smelled like a Florentine leather shop.
The gray v. green would have been striking.
Well, life with the Cayman has come to a close. Sold it last week and the guy is coming from a few hundred miles away to pick it up.
Loved it, but two things. Too close to my Miata to really justify owning both. Obviously the Porsche is faster and more exotic, but they’re really similar feeling cars and do similar things. Love running errands in the Miata, but I’d rather not do that in a Porsche. I know a lot of people do, but I love that I don’t have to worry about door dings in the Miata.
And I really want a 911. Probably somewhat newer, for a nice grand tourer that’s more sporty than the Audi SQ5 (which is a brilliant road trip car in its own right).
Oh, plus the market is softening pretty quickly, so I wanted to move sooner rather than later.
So, I’ll sell this and be ready to pull the trigger when i find the right car. If you’ve got a 7-speed manual 991.2 in Miami Blue, let me know.
I don’t know if you drive dangerously. You do appear to live dangerously.
