I think the Roadster made sense as Tesla's "first car". They had enough troubles making a viable, useable-in-the-real-world electric drivetrain (and that took a few iterations to get right)...so...

I know it's anecdotal but, there are a lot of folks in the Tesla forum that had a Model S on order, but changed them as soon as the D-model (the high-performance dual-motor version) was announced.

Here's the chapter from the service manual on the fuel system.

Looks like the fuel pump is in the tank, and accessible from an access hatch under the rear seat. And it doesn't look "simple" (to...

The back of my Roadster just says "TESLA"...that's it. The sport model has a little, modest "Sport" badge in script, but nothing more.

Geez....he/she couldn't be bothered to mask a little bit when they got out the rattle-can of black spray paint to paint the bumper trim?

If you look at the diagram on the top of page 16 of the attachment I posted...the two latches are tied together with a linkage. There's a single motor that moves both latches at the same time. I...

Here's the chapter from the service manual on the "sliding roof" (as they call it).

I think what you're looking for is on page 9.

I had a problem recently with the motor that works those 2 roof...

I think there's a difference between souping up a Camry...and building a purpose-built drag car with a Camry body installed on top of it.

This is NOT a "really fast Camry". This is a "really fast...

Underneath the car, there's a metal strip that sticks down. The slot on the top of the factory jack fits into this strip. By each wheel, on this strip, are 2 notches cut out of the strip. The jack...

Unfortunately, it's not necessarily worth what you want for it...it's worth what someone is willing to spend for it.

I hope you get your asking price.

I agree that getting in and out of it (with the top on) is...ungraceful.

But, I'm 6'1, and 250+lbs, not flexible at all, not athletic in the least...and I can do it without much difficulty. ...

One of the first things I tried (after taking it for a spin). Results didn't look good.

It doesn't need it.

I put the CarPC in the Lexus because there were no factory options to play mp3s, get Satellite Radio, etc.

The Tesla comes with a factory Alpine head unit. It's got Nav,...

The answer to both question is...it depends.

As for range, "ideal" range, when new, is a little over 200 miles on a charge. This reduces slightly over time, as the battery pack ages. Also,...

I think the power roof and the LuxLink are the things I'm most going to miss.

The Roadster is basically a targa top. It's a soft roof that comes off. You have to be outside the car, and...

There's really no "putting it in gear". It's always in gear. Reverse is running the motor backwards. Park...

Finally replacing the SC430

I've had my 2003 SC430 since Oct 2006, and loved the whole ownership experience.

However, it's now 11 years old...and over 120,000 miles on the odometer.

Time to look for something new. I...

The "fail code" only stays in the car until the next complete cycle. So, to get the top failure code, you have to be AT the dealership WITH the problem...
