    As long as it gets to the beach and back it has done the job.

    I watched the EVs race up Goodwood, honestly this is probably the worst venue for a silent car:

    Wow, the ID.R is really f'ing fast!
    But I guess we knew that already.

    It looks to be the only car that has ever done it it less than 40 seconds.

    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.

    jeeze louize.

    while nice of the home owner to not get too upset, its pretty irresponsible to roll up someone lawn and use their home power without asking or authorization.

    I'd have no problem helping someone out with a quick charge if asked, but can't say I wouldn't be upset if some jacked my juice without asking.

    But did the Tesla owner add that homeowner's address to the Plug Share app?

    There are several of those "nobody said to NOT use it" type of entries:

    From the above linked story:

    he did not even apologize for doing so. His only excuse was that his battery went dead.
    How is this OK? If he were driving a gasoline powered car and ran out of fuel right there, would it be OK for him to help himself to the gas the homeowner keeps in his garden shed? Did his parents really not teach him that taking without asking is stealing?
