Tesla

Having heard a lot about them, I saw my first Tesla today, and all I can say is “What a horrible looking car”🤮

Please don’t ask me what model it was as I couldn’t tell and I forgot to take a picture of the outside but I just couldn’t believe the interior of it. Just as if someone’s stuck an iPad on the dash with some blue tack as an after thought🤔🤪. I just had to take a picture of it, I was flabbergasted.

Surely this can’t be the future😳. I know it’s just an individual opinion from an old boy, but come on, surely people don’t actually like these cars. Oh and don’t get me started on the alloys 😳😂

There's not one single thing to like about that picture, apart from the reflection of a (your?) white Golf.

..haha. There are a few near me. Shows who runs a company car.   They are growing locally. Watch out. The future for us. 
Also. “Some” Women like them too……you’ve been warned.  (…”well a Tesla can accelerate fast too!”)😳🙄😂

Edited by NRW
Corrected. “Some”

It makes me wonder, what kind of conversation took place in the board meeting when the designers were making decisions on that interior…..

1) Let’s put seats in it…..Yep

2) Let’s put a steering wheel in it…..Yep

3) Let’s get some blue tack and stick an iPad in it…..Yep

4) Anything else…….Nope

Good that’s decided then😂🤪🤔😳🤪

 

It just beggar’s belief that people want to buy these cars. My old Ford Capri looked better and more interesting  than that. I bet they haven’t even thought of putting a soundaktor in it 🤯😂

I can just imagine 🤔 the future with kids going to a car museum and putting on a set of headphones oops sorry ear buds and listening to the sound of the roar of a V8 engine and AC/DC playing “Highway to Hell” in the background, and saying “Wow those must have been the days”.🤩🥰

...unless you buy the model s plaid, in which case you get the yoke out of a Cessna airplane. Apparently the CORRECT solution that every single car manufacturer agrees on just wasn't good enough for Tesla. I wonder what they'll do for the next one, maybe a playstation controller like in iRobot (might of been Men in Black 2 actually).

Don’t get the film wrong otherwise there might be Will Smith ‘special’ heading towards your cheek. 😁

The ugliest, IMO, Tesla is a Model Y - their crossover model, with white seats, the smallest 'Aero' wheels with the covers on and white exterior.....seeing more of these on the road, plenty of Model 3's in that format anyway.

 

The best looking is a Model S, exterior and interior (which looks more like a normal car) - but will set you back +100K.

Model X is just some hideous giant mums car of a SUV boat that's been overengineered and has lots of issues.

 

Next best thing to an S is a Model 3, in black, black interior and aftermarket wheels as the factory wheel options range from meh to hideous......which is what i'll be getting in June (my delivery date has moved forward)

 

I have had nothing but golf's for past 15 years, currently a mk7.5 R max spec, which i have had plenty of fun in - having driven the Model 3 for an hour on my own, I was sold.

The jury is still out if I will still be a man after I take delivery of my Tesla, I'll let you know over the course of my ownership if I have made a colossal mistake! :D

The way cars are going has seriously played into my thinking on current change as seek to preserve/hang onto all is good before everything goes completely sterile and travelling A-B is just an action and no longer has any pleasure. 

 

The only hope have is that what seeing now in EV is for the masses as the start off and that the potential we have seen on some genuine performance EV comes latterly for those who seek a driving experience, IE: something that retains all the traditions of a performance car in abilities, style and looks but just happens to be electric motor driven. 

 

Would not have any EV that does not look like a car and is basically a carrying container for people with just a single bolted on screen as its center point (Tesla) 

 

Having just seen someone has just swapped in their R for a Tesla, this is just my opinion and what do I know, 🤪 you likely more well informed,  so feel free to duly ignore and hope car turns out to be all the reasons you decided to switch.
