After 100,000 miles how does a Tesla Model S stand up?

Read the wild story of how Steve Sasman recaps his adventures of owning a Tesla Model S. Everything from taking a 27,615 mile road trip around the U.S. to over 500 Uber trips. Pretty wild to hear how it still performs and his passion for the car along with tips for other owners.


Tesla’s new Model S P100D is not only quick, it’s the first all-electric car with over 300 miles of range — Electrek

Understandably, everyone is focusing on the incredible acceleration of Tesla’s new Model S P100D – 0 to 60 mph in 2.5 seconds – but what is even more interesting, to me at least, is that the Model S is now the first all-electric car with over 300 miles of range. We are talking about an…

Tesla Referral Program

It has been too long since I have posted on here and there are a few reasons for that which will come in upcoming blog posts.

The reason for this recent post has to do with Tesla Motors’ recently announced referral program. For people who are looking to buy a new Model S and are referred they get $1,000 off of their brand new Model S. For the existing owner who refers the new car they get $1,000 credit. Now there are rewards, for the first person to successfully refer 10 people they will get a brand new fully loaded Model X. I have decided to launch a contest myself. If you are looking to buy a new Model S I will not only help you get your $1,000 off, but if you help me become the first to get and win a Model X I will give you the $1,000 I would have received. If that doesn’t happen I am still willing to share for everyone. I’ve attached a break down for getting paid, if we do not achieve that.

If I get a Model X:
You get a $1,000 off your new Model S and $1,000

If were not first to win Model X:

1 car $300
2 cars $350/car
3 cars and more rate can be decided.

Referral for a friend of a friend $100 and $150 for the friend
2 cars 150 and $200 per car

“Quality in a service or product is not what you put into it. It is what the client or customer gets out of it.” – Peter Drucker


Recently I had to take ‘Scarlett’ in for a check up. Primarily, I just wanted to have an unfortunate scratch taken care of. It happened to be a crisp, fall Friday and I had a few errands to run. I needed a loaner car for the day. There just happened to be a couple. One of them caught my eye though… A midnight blue Tesla roadster. I had heard that the service centers were now incorporating them as loaner vehicles. It seemed too good to to be true. Continue reading

Tesla Motors Lake Oswego Meet Up 09/15/13


Yesterday there was a Tesla Motors sponsored meet up in Lake Oswego. A fairly overcast Sunday with a brief downpour accompanied by some lightning but overall a great turnout. There were quite a few local owners that showed up. Andy from the local Tesla Owners Group, PDX Tesla was there demoing off features of his car to curious people passing by. With the meet up being centrally located in Lake Oswego on a weekend was a great way for people unfamiliar with Tesla Motors to find out more. You can see ‘Scarlett’ in the background.

Coming off of today’s news about Tesla’s quarterly revenues, Tesla Motors keeps showing strong, positive growth. Many traders had forcasted Tesla to post a loss of about $0.20 per share. Instead Tesla did literally the opposite and posted a $0.20 per share operating profit. Continue reading

“A business that makes nothing but money is a poor business.” – Henry Ford

A video that follows up to a previous video from Wired. This clip highlights the different approach that Tesla takes to manufacturing. A philosophy, that looks forward to the future of sustainable transportation. Bringing the advances of heavy automation with the originality that comes from a strong human element.

As an entrepreneur there are many steps that need to be taken to finally get to the actual starting point of beginning a new business. There are  times you may even forget the original inspiration why you started such an undertaking. After our recent success, I was feeling reenergized and I remembered what started the idea of Tesla Trips. I wanted to see meaningful change in sustainable transportation and to help provide more options for the consumer.
