I can't believe I am the first to post something in our beloved Northeast !
Having a MS 70D I know the joy this vehicle and company brings me. Looking to get a gathering together next year when the M3 is released out here to drivers. Getting roadsters, MS, MX, and M3 together would be fantastic!!
Love to hear other people's reasons for getting the Model 3 !

Anybody interested in getting together this late fall or early winter? Talking central mass, southern NH and Maine, and northern Conn people here. Had a nice Tesla get together this past weekend for Tesla owners of New England and would like to hear more about Model 3 reservation holders perspectives.

hello,

current Tesla owners get together from time to time and those reserving a Model 3 I imagine wouldn't mind chatting with fellow M3 holders and/or current S or X owners....
This early spring when we know more about the final product sounds good to me. Central Mass is a great location for people in lower NH, Maine and Vermont as well as northern Conn and RI.
Anybody interested send me PM and we can get the ball rolling already have a dozen or so current owners interested.

Hi, glad to see more East/NorthEast owners...
Has anyone heard of any supercharger plans for the Philadelphia area? I can't imagine them not having at least one there. I know I don't necessarily need to have one traveling from my hometown, but it would be good to have peace of mind knowing there is one in case of emergency.
Thanks.

I drove to PA every week for about 6 months from MA. There are some destination chargers inside the city, but I didn't use them most of the time. I mainly charged up before hitting the city at the Hamilton, NJ SC to go to Philly and back. You just need to double the charge that Tesla tells you so you can get into the City and back out again (or use a planner like EVTripping.com which you can have tell you what you need). That charger/approach worked well for me in all weather conditions.

It depends where you're coming from in terms of how you're routing. If you're coming from the south it would be different, etc. Trip planners like EVtripping can help you think through the scenarios even before you get your car (no ownership required and site is free), or in a more comfortable setting if you have a car.

BTW I'm in Central Mass (Worcester area) and have had a Model S for 3 years/78K miles. Also a 3 res holder but will definitely be holding off for AWD (which my S doesn't have).

Thanks for the advice. I test drove a Model S ludicrous mode a few months ago. Holy S!!!
I am definitely antsy waiting for the 3 and was almost tempted to give in and get an S but it wasn't the wisest move financially at the time. Maybe later in the future.
I am actually going from a Honda Accord with 138,000 miles on it to the Tesla Model 3 so it will be like when I went from my flip phone to Iphone5 at the time (I was late bloomer to smartphones).
Not to bring up a subject overtalked about but I do admit I'm disappointed by no HUD (more for superficial reasons than practical) but knowing now how an S feels I'm still very excited to have anything even close to an S.
I think people who never drove a Tesla and are entering the 3 experience will be extremely happy!

Not excited about a missing binnacle/hud option either and will definitely wait for the AWD here in New England but I REALLY want Autopilot.

I went from an Acura MDX SUV to the Tesla Model S. Quite the upgrade/change. I "justified" the purchase:

Of course that didn't include adding a Model 3 into the mix too :p

I wouldn't think in the short term they will put a SC in the city of Philly, with public charging and destination chargers like people have said and SC northeast and southwest for travelers it seems a bit unnecessary. Teslaliving, I must have met you at some event somewhere...I have had my S for 2 years now, 70D with autopilot. Should get together, as I also live in the Worcester area. Put in for M3 and can't wait to see what it looks like in person !!!

I agree, SCs rarely go in Cities. You don't need them inside the city, but some distance outside (in every direction).

We may have met, I've been to a few of the local Tesla events at Dedham (including the opening). My plate (rear only) is TLIVNG so it's easily recognizable.

When the first 3 hits New England we should try to see if the lucky owner will do a show and tell. I doubt it will be me as I'll hold off for AWD.

I have been to Dedham for the event where Nick was talking about the Gigafactory, and the test drives for the Model X, a friend bought one and I was a lucky devil to get a test drive. I don't remember seeing your plate, would definitely remember it.
I am debating about going for early Model 3 with RWD and put snow tires on them or wait maybe till 2018 for AWD. Decisions, decisions...would like to be one of the early adopters historically of the Model 3 but have a 70D and know the AWD feel not so much the Tesla RWD feel.

I had a res on the Model X. Went to the test drive event in Dedham before they started shipping and decided then and there to cancel. Didn't like the doors or lack of folding seats.

I have snow tires on my RWD S. It's been good for 3 years but there are definitely times I'd rather have the comfort of AWD, not for stopping or steering so much but sometimes it's hard to get going. As far as the every day driving feel, I haven't noticed much different between it and AWD loaners (although these days you generally get the old P85/P85+ types as loaners).

You should stop calling it 'cali' then unless you want to stand out as the outsider. It's like being the one guy with an umbrella in Portland instead of a hooded coat. ;)
Ha. Ha. Only using it as written shorthand since CA might not register for international members. All those Canadians around this forum might think I'm talking about them. Id never use it in spoken conversation just written. I'm actually returning to CA having lived previously in San Fransisco, which shall never ever be called Frisco or SanFran. That shits verboten.

I almost added the SanFran/Frisco to my earlier comment ;) glad you are in the know :D
