Why Everything’s A Tesla Killer: Tesla Stuffing, For Science

December 9th, 2019 | by Jennifer Sensiba

For both Tesla fans and Tesla critics (including the extreme versions of both kinds of Tesla-interested people), there's definitely one thing all of us in and out of Tesla-dom can agree on: the "Tesla Killer" thing is getting old (even for a young brand like Tesla). We have our own different reasons for thinking the Tesla killer thing is wrong, but it's well known that as a meme it's not only cliche but absurd to say every new EV or mobility service is going to kill Tesla, or to compare everything to Tesla

Top Gear: Tesla Model 3 Performance “A Satisfying Way To Get Around”

September 22nd, 2018 | by Guest Contributor

Tesla’s vehicles have earned rave reviews from just about every major automotive authority. However, there are plenty of car guys (and, presumably, gals) out there who still haven’t warmed up to a Tesla, or any electric vehicle. Some petrol-heads of this persuasion are to be found at Top Gear, the UK car guys that famously fought it out in the courtroom with Tesla back in 2008 (as told in a certain book). “As much as we admire BEVs, not one has yet landed that genuinely stirs the emotions like our old friend internal combustion,” writes Top Gear’s Jason Barlow in a recent article


My First ProPILOT Experience, + Comparing The 2018 Nissan Leaf, Tesla Model 3, Chevy Bolt, & BMW i3

August 18th, 2018 | by Cynthia Shahan

As we turned out of the dealership for my second 2018 Nissan LEAF test drive, I touched the ProPILOT Assist button. That little press of the button put me on high alert. Yes, that is the opposite of what it is for --- but with self-driving technologies, don't we all have nervous beginnings? It is my first time driving towards our autonomous future, the future that I seem to read about several times a week now


96-Year Old Auto Mechanic & Racing Legend: Tesla Model 3 Favorite Car Ever

May 30th, 2018 | by Guest Contributor

We loved reading the inspirational story about Wesley, age 83, driving his silver metallic Model 3 from California to Florida. My dad Walt Mordenti, age 96, lives in San Francisco. He picked up his red Model 3 (VIN 001388) at the Tesla Factory on December 23, 2017, which possibly makes him the oldest Model 3 owner


Automotive Media Is Loving The Tesla Model 3

February 6th, 2018 | by Matt Pressman

With Model 3 deliveries becoming a bit more common, media outlets are finally getting their hands on Tesla's most-anticipated car. Back in July, Motor Trend called it "the most important car of the century" in Model 3's one-and-only published review. Since then, Tesla hasn't been releasing test cars to the press. Automotive journalists (like reservation holders) have been anxiously awaiting an opportunity to step on the gas... uh, I mean accelerator


Tesla Holds Private Model 3 Event For New Owners In Miami (Gallery)

February 1st, 2018 | by Guest Contributor

On January 17, I received a text from my wife: “Did you get the invitation for the Tesla (Model) 3 in Aventura mall?” My response: “?!?!?” Tesla sent her an email for an invitation-only event to celebrate the grand re-opening of the Aventura store in Miami, guest starring Model 3. Needless to say, I was extremely excited to check it out
