10 *Real* Reasons To Buy A Tesla Model 3

June 27th, 2019 by  

Paul, Vijay, and I keep writing about practical reasons to buy a Tesla. But let’s get real, below are 10 legitimate reasons to buy a Tesla.

1. It’s the best car to take to a minigolf course.

Heck, you can even leave the dog in the car thanks to “Dog Mode.”

Or you could leave the kids in the car playing video games while you get to crush the course with your vulgar friends!

2. Those damn rims.

So pretty.

(Not the default ones. If you get the default ones, just take them off. Please.)

3. The colorful glass roof in the rain & morning dew.

Yes, I’m a romantic.

4. You’re just a Spinal Tap fan.

The volume goes to 11!

5. Those eyes! My God, those eyes!

6. You’re obsessed with SpaceX and this is the closest thing you can get to a SpaceX rocket.

7. You want a car that is so clever nobody will be able to open the door on first try.

Try it. I dare you.

8. The kids love it.

9. It’s the best car for sunset photos.
