At this point I am sure there's a handful of people who have commented saying "Hey, 00R, why SO many Tesla stories?"

Well, if you haven't been paying attention, yesterday was one of the most critical days for Tesla.

And, this is important for several reasons. Chiefly, it is one of America's most innovative companies at this time — not for the reasons you think. Secondly, the Model 3 has around 400,000 hand raisers who put down $1,000 of their hard-earned cash for a spot to buy one.

It wasn’t bland, nor sterile, nor cheap feeling. Here was something different. Here was an exercise in minimalism. Here was the car Elon Musk promised to make 14 years ago...

...Cornering was decent, and when I turned the wheel, I saw no sign of understeer. I made only right turns, and most of the roads that I drove on were crowded with other cars or construction, so I wouldn’t describe my experience as a conclusive test drive, but what I walked away with was a glimpse into what Tesla is thinking..
