    Recreating the NY Times Road Trip - Feb 15-17, 2013

    Anyone interested in recreating the NYT's road trip, minus the detour? I imagine several owners have already made similar trips along I-95, but how about some Coffee and Eggs at Butch's and a group photo to show Tesla our support? I think it would be fun, and vindicating.

    Anyone interested?

I've set up a Twitter page for all of you to follow us on. We'll be posting pictures and @PureAmps is setting up some of our cars to tweet along the trip!

    Great idea. I'm thinking Tesla should do it in the exact same vehicle. With a different NYT reporter. Not Jayson Blair.

    I just sent an email to Tesla's press team, asking if we could get the same car for an NYT Road Challenge. If they do it, I'll take a red eye from CA to sign for the car and join the convoy! Would love to be part of this.

    I would love to if I were in the area.
    I would recommend doing with the detour. If the reporter had charged full, and not 'preconditioned' the battery without it being plugged in, I think he would have been just fine.

    I would like to see a convoy of Teslas set out on the trip together. Too bad there aren't enough Superchargers for that.

    I don't know what detour he took, but I agree. I think we could recreate everything and have miles to spare. The only thing we shouldn't recreate is the going over the speed limit part. Driving the limit is not only the right thing to do, but it should add lots of miles to our range
