I'd imagine owning a Roadster would be a great help in convincing the awesomeness of Tesla to unbelievers but I am not so fortunate
So, I wear my Tesla Jacket just about everyday ( >99% of days since Factory event) or one of the hats.
There are 2 types of people that I mainly speak with about T:
1 the ones that are really genuinely interested / or don't know at all about it (but are still interested)
2 the ones that are 'interested' but have a 'Petersen' attitude (but not so outright anti-Tesla) I almost think they want to see it fail
I am starting to get annoyed with the same couple of people asking where the car is(2) / seeing me park my Ls430 and say 'is that a Tesla' . Those couple I think might be really interested (because it will be awesome, and they are engineers who I thought should use good judgment) but I would rather not let them even play in it because they talk **** about bricking and batteries and range and this and that. But I should think it isn't really their fault and just misinformation.
So as far as I can tell there are at least 5 people around my office who are interested and financially could probably get an S but will like to see/ drive first I'm pretty sure
lot's of people who would love one but don't own a house yet / have kids and other $$ obligations
I plan on getting a standard performance S and my goal is to get 2 people in Eureka to get an S after seeing/riding/driving in mine
How many people have you turned to Tesla?
