Zach (TeslaTested)

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 Zach and I have a Tesla Model 3 called Flash!

The first time I drove a Tesla...
The first time I ever drove a Tesla was on delivery day. It was the most incredible experience. Regen braking was the coolest thing ever when first driving it.

Favorite thing about my car
Controlling the climate on my phone, keyless entry where I don’t need a key fob.

Least favorite thing about my car
The frameless windows freezing in the winter, it’s the worst.

I wish my Tesla had...
A sunroof and adaptive headlights.

My favorite accessory
Abstract Ocean's puddle lights

If I could ask Elon Musk one question, that would be...
When everyone doubted him, and I mean literally everyone, how did you know you had a revolutionary product?

Why Tesla?
They are the only luxury brand with a true EV, that’s the same price as a Chevy Bolt. I chose it for the tech it had, it’s like driving a smartphone.

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
