We had some airbnb guests show up in this wicked cool car a while back. The demo mode was really inventive. Useless but fun.

Fart Mode was Tammy's favorite setting. :hunter:
Ludicrous Mode was mine. :eek4:

Dameon's taking us for a jaunt was an eye opening experience, it stood out in a year full of highlights.:up:

I did get a ride in this x100d. He didn't go nuts but it was fun at least. I honestly, can't take any electric car seriously at this point in life. I know they're quick as hell but I don't care how fast it is 0-60 or how many e-miles per gallon it gets. I don't ever wanna have to worry about needing to find a charging station with the vehicle I drive. I LIKE pumping gas and driving on.

How cheap are used teslas gonna be in 8 -10 years when they all need new batteries? Amazon will surely be selling replacement tesla batteries. Maybe I'll get one then.

Lifetime warranty... at least for now.

Interesting, but unlikely. More likely is what people are doing for Prius and Leaf battery pack repair... sourcing the batteries and replacing individual cells in the pack. That is super easy in a Tesla as they use standard Panasonic 18650 cells... kind of like a big AA battery. I expect they will eventually switch fully to the 2170 used in the Model 3 though.

The 100D is a non-performance model, so you experienced the minimum performance level of the Model X (excluding the extra traction afforded by the front motor D=dual motor). The next step up is the Performance rear motor (P100D). This can allow for the final step to P100D with Ludicrous. The Model X, being the largest/heaviest Tesla, is the least performing model, but even with that it is likely among (maybe THE) fastest SUV on the market.
