Tom (Tesla Tom)

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, I'm Tom (Tesla Tom) and I have a Model S called Electric Blue.

The first time I drove a Tesla...
I bought my Tesla second hand(used). This was the first Tesla I drove. I loved it immediately! I knew I had to have it

Favorite thing about my car
The fact that it embodies everything I’d ever envisaged a car ought to be.

Least favorite thing about my car
Needed more storage compartments but then again I have a AP1 Model S. This issue has been rectified in later iterations.

I wish my Tesla had...
More use of side cameras when parking.

My favorite accessory
Type 2 EV charging cable (Australia)

If I could ask Elon Musk one question, that would be...
Are you happy?

Why Tesla?
It’s the largest vehicle production company that is 100% genuinely focussed on producing electric cars for the mass market.

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
