I'm sure you're very excited, and apprehensive. It's a big purchase, it's new technology, it's a new company, you know all this. I have something new to tell you to be aware of....
Yes, my friends. You will become a virtual rockstar. You WILL be asked things like:
"What is that?"
"Is that a Maserati?"
"Is that a Jaguar?"
"A Wha?... Who makes it?"
(some cringe-worthy ones...)
"How much does it cost?"
"How fast does it go?"
"Is 200 Miles really enough range?"
You will almost certainly return to your car and find, as I did today at an shopping outlet center in Riverhead, NY, 11 people milling about. My unscientific average is 4...
You will find fingerprints on your car that you didn't leave yourself. Especially on the handles. I now wipe them to see how many people try pushing on them to try to get in the car!
Last week, I had a "hoodlum" kid who was spinning his tires in stop and go traffic see me return to my car. He called out "Hey!" I thought... Here it comes, some sort of insult.... "Is that a Tesla?" I answered that it was, he gave the "Hang Loose" sign and said "Awesome! Great car!"
So if you're an introvert... you may need to do your shopping at night
