Franklin (Mother Frunker)

This is part of our 100 issue celebration publication where we pay tribute to the Tesla community by sharing just a few of the stories that brought us all here.

Hi, my name is Franklin and I have a Tesla Model 3 RWD LR called Mother Frunker.

The first time I drove a Tesla...
I was never into cars. A friend told me to book a test drive with a Tesla. I test drove a Model S P100D. As someone who never loved cars and always thought purchasing a brand new car was a 'waste of money', after my Tesla test drive, I went home and instantly put my deposit down.

Favorite thing about my car
OTA Updates. This should become a standard across all cars. Since I've purchased my car I have received more range, better performance, games and all sorts of other goodies. OTA Updates allows the car to continuously improve.

Least favorite thing about my car
Black Piano Gloss center console. This was an oversight on Tesla's part. Thankfully a simple wrap fixes this problem.

I wish my Tesla had...
The programmer in me is waiting for a full API hat allows us to submit our own apps and games to a 'Tesla App Store'. I really want to be able to build tools to enhance everyday experiences that integrate with the car.

My favorite accessory
Elon Accessories Screen Protector

My second favorite accessory
TeslaBros wraps

If I could ask Elon Musk one question, that would be...
Space X makes contact with extraterrestrial life. What do you do next? Should the public know?

Why Tesla?
For me, Technology. It is the most advanced car available today. OTA Updates, Autopilot, Smart Summon, etc. It is amazing. The car is also great for those interested in performance, want a family car (safety), environmentalists, technologists, etc. It appeals to a large range of people.

Because we 💚 Tesla

Our Model S rocks so much that we designed some sweet t-shirts to go with it. Check out all of our designs at
