Can a Tesla survive a weekend of tailgating?
Halibutboy Flatfish stashed this in Manliness
I like a car review that tests under REAL WORLD conditions... and this guy hits all of them, really. Packing the trunk with pony kegs, road trip to Auburn, drinking beer while filling the tank (well, the battery), drag racing, and a bunch of other REAL WORLD use cases. Solid!
While the Tesla can handle a road trip, it is not to be undertaken without plenty of prior planning.
This is not a car in which you can just say "Ooooh, let’s head down to Mardi Gras on a whim!" Even "Let’s detour off our pre-determined route and go have barbecue at this shack in the middle of nowhere" is probably inadvisable. Certain restrictions apply to electric motoring.
