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 Vanessa and I have a Model S 75 called Chispas.

The first time I drove a Tesla...
The first time I rode in a Tesla it was in December 2017, a Model S from the Tesla showroom in Walnut Creek (CA). The first time I drove a Tesla it was our Model S, also in December of 2017. Autopilot blew my mind but I have to admit it didn't feel comfortable, not as it does now anyway.

Favorite thing about my car
Over-the-air software updates.

Least favorite thing about my car
I hate our driver side sun visor. It always falls. Since day 1.

I wish my Tesla had...
MCU2 retrofit please. And one-pedal driving.

My favorite accessory
Chrome Delete Kit by Teslabros

If I could ask Elon Musk one question, that would be...
Have you ever felt like giving up on something? What made you change your mind?

Why Tesla?
Technology, amazing car to drive, and environmentally friendly.

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
