There are two Tesla stores in Portland and one is a service center also. They are actually a little closer to me than the Infiniti dealership. Currently, the closest Supercharger station is in Lincoln City which is 25 miles north of me but Newport will be getting a Supercharger station this year. There are closer Supercharger stations currently but they are located at motels that require you be a paying customer to use them.How close is the Tesla dealer to you?
By the time I'm done playing with Q50 and looking at a replacement, I'll be very interested to see what's on the EV market. I'm fairly certain I'm going EV on the next car.Aye the possible fuel savings is a tempting, especially when you consider future oil and gas prices. Easily accessible shale deposits are very quickly running out
and Canada is going to be finishing their pipeline in a year or so.
That 5-8K in savings could very quickly increase to 8-10K in a few years, but ignoring that point the Model S needs a full re-design before I would ever even consider one. The interiors really aren't that nice and there are a lot of features/improvements on the Model 3 that have yet to be implemented in the Model S.
I'm personally hoping Nissan comes out with a new hybrid Q50 that uses the 3.0TT or heck I'd even be interested in a Leaf Nismo
the concept car they had looked sick.
Eh you get that with every brand, doesn't matter if it's Porsche, BMW or even Toyota. The people who own Tesla's just happen to be the ones shouting the loudest at the moment.I don't know about Tesla man. I just have a certain thought about Tesla drivers. Maybe it's just me but I think of them as snobbish and self-righteous. Remember the old joke about Porsche drivers in the 80s/90s? What's the difference between Porsche drivers and porcupines? With porcupines, the pricks are on the outside. I guess I feel today's Tesla is yesteryear's Porsche. Maybe it's something I need to work on.
Aye I'm thinking much the same, it's why I wired my garage up for a 220 outlet and a 150A panel.... Well that and power tools.

I have mineral rights on some land in Adams County, North Dakota I've inherited. I've been wondering if there is any oil or gas there that will ever be worth anything.
The property is only 1/4 of a section (160 acres) and looking at Google Maps, I see unimproved land with no roads. I doubt it's worth much.Eh you get that with every brand, doesn't matter if it's Porsche, BMW or even Toyota. The people who own Tesla's just happen to be the ones shouting the loudest at the moment.

That's neat you inherited that, well if nothing else property value doesn't really ever go down and they may want to build something through
your area like a road or pipeline even if there isn't any of value on the land itself.
