    in general I like the model 3 design, but I gotta have either a HUD or 'normal' instrument panel with speed etc.

    So what's your take on Elon's "420 / Funding Secured" tweet? Sounds implausible to me, and it seems he could be in a heap of trouble with the SEC if he can't show 'em the money...
    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    After having a Prius (center - upper gauges) and a Mini (center, mid-level gauges) this is no big deal to me.

    I think it's really being discussed; will it happen? Hard to say. I'm pretty confident that there's interest from outside investors to do it.... but 'funding secured' is going to be parsed very closely if it all goes to shit.

    Uwe's white A6 would be a closer match.

    Audi: 4.8s and 13.4@103.9
    Tesla: 4.8s and 13.6@103.5

    From 30 mph though, I think it's game over.

    Vs the e-tron, I think it's quite a bit faster.

    30-50:
    • e-tron: 3.1s
    • model 3: 1.9


    50-70:
    • e-tron: 4.0s
    • model 3: 2.8s

    Model 3 on calendar to visit RTHQ on 8/29!

    Been playing around with Teslafi - www.teslafi.com You generate an API token for your car, and then their system can query what's going on, your driving / charging history / etc... and graph it all out. It reminds me of VoltStats ( https://www.voltstats.net/ ) from back when I had an original Volt.

    A few drives from today:

    From european auto shop (getting inspected) downhill to work:


    Tearing around a bit at lunchtime:


    And the subsequent cheapy charging at work:


    Whoa! And it keeps details:

    Aero wheels.

    Under the... controversial aero wheel covers are painted aluminum wheels. Pulled my covers off, got some center caps and lug covers....
