    How do you attach a roof rack to a glass roof?

    Very Carefully! Seriously tho. If I had the glass Panoramic I'd be extremely Leary of trying to carry ANYTHING (bicycles and such) on this Museum Piece of Technology. If anything I'd just go with the 'tow option'....though not interested in this. Have another vehicle for that.
    What in the world is the towing capacity of the Model 3 anyway?

    It's these kinds of questions I really need worked out. I love the integrated rack on the Subie. Hauling Christmas trees, ladders and all...

    Museum pieces are nice, but I need a vehicle to do work for me, take me and my gear places. If it turns out to be just a commuter car (which it does not look like) I'd have to pass.

    Just got back from a trip through southwest Colorado and Arizona and I realized there are no superchargers between Denver and Farmington, NM if taking the direct route via US285 or between Farmington and Flagstaff if not going the long way via I-40. But that's another topic...

    I agree with you wholeheartedly. I thought twice when I stated "museum piece" and probably should have used another term. I said that not in the 'buy the car and park it to look at it' sense but that it is such an engineering and physical 'work of art'. I am definitely buying this not only as a commuting workhorse but as an enjoyable driver.
    It sounds like maybe Model X or the upcoming Model Y CUV would be more practical and specify to your daily needs.

    Its going to be the same as the S likely -- if you get the panoramic (or equivalent) sunroof then there are connectors for a roof rack, if not there aren't.

    On the S the roof rack is a US$520 upgrade. Another item to add to the list.
