It's a thrilling feeling when you take delivery of your first Tesla. There's that new car smell. The serene silence of no internal combustion engine. The ultra-smooth acceleration. The addictive torque. However, looking at your perfect, all-new, all-electric machine leaves you feeling like something is missing.
