My Model 3 Tweetstorm Review

Last week on a whim, I posted a small Tweetstorm review of my Tesla Model 3 that I purchased in July. It reached far more people than I ever thought it would, even garnering a reply from Elon Musk, himself.

The experience was pretty surreal, and most of the replies and comments were very positive!

I answered a bunch of questions regarding the car, and have decided to write a full review, complete with deltas and opportunities. Stay tuned!

Tesla Reveals Solar Roof Pricing →

Tesla Solar Roof tiles

Tom Randall for Bloomberg:

Tesla will begin with production of two of the four styles it unveiled in October: a smooth glass and a textured glass tile. 1 Roofing a 2,000 square-foot home in New York state—with 40 percent coverage of active solar tiles and battery backup for night-time use—would cost about $50,000 after federal tax credits and generate $64,000 in energy over 30 years, according to Tesla’s website calculator.

If you haven’t heard about Tesla’s Solar Roof (and tiles), you really should check them out. They’re made with tempered glass and claimed to be three times stronger than standard roofing tiles. Tesla continues to be the Apple of the car/energy industry, with this blend of design and engineering.
