Going for a Ride in a Tesla Roadster

Al and Nep are busy getting the conduits and generator pad in place.  With everything progressing, Bryan took the opportunity to go for a ride in an all-electric Tesla Roadster.

Tesla has a store located in Santa Row, in downtown San Jose, which is where the car was located.  Bryan’s first ride in a Tesla Roadster was with Paul Fulton, who owns a beautiful blue Roadster 2.5.  Paul has a charging station in his garage, with a separate meter for just the electricity for his car.  Our charging stations will go through our time-of-use meter and we will have the E-9A rate.

The acceleration in the Tesla Roadster is breathtaking.  0-60 mph in 3.9 seconds; 3.7 seconds in the Sport model.  Our brother-in-law, Ron Smith, would love it!

The Fusion Red Tesla Roadster Sport was cool.  The color would match our red front door.

Way cool …

The forms are set for the generator pad at the back of our lot. Al will put the base rock in and then we will pour 3/4 yard of concrete on Friday.

This is Fusion Red, which would match our red front door.


This is the Sport model, which does 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds (vs 3.9 seconds).

We stopped by the job site briefly …


While returning the Tesla to the dealership in Santa Row, we snapped a quick photo of Bryan comparing our LEAF to the Tesla Roadster (Sue Therrien prefers the Tesla, right Sue?).
