Our Tesla Roadster Was Finally Delivered: Video

JAN 2 2019 BY STEVEN LOVEDAY 12

This family adds another Tesla to its collection, and it’s a Roadster!

For those who are unaware, YouTubers What’s Inside Family own a few Tesla vehicles and more are on the way. In fact, the channel’s host Dan drove a brand-new Tesla Roadster at the reveal event and put a $45,000 deposit down. Since then, he bought a heavily discounted Tesla Model X P100D, won a 2020 Tesla Roadster, and took delivery of one of the first Tesla Roadsters ever built.

We were aware that Dan had a Tesla Roadster reservation, which he recently canceled since he won another through Tesla’s Referral Program (more on that below). We’ll be honest to say that when this video popped up on our feed, we did a double take. For a second, we wondered if Tesla did something crazy and delivered Dan’s Roadster ahead of the masses. Of course, that’s not the case. Instead, Dan just took delivery of an original Tesla Roadster since he won’t get the new one for a few more years.

Interestingly, he shared another video about a week ago. As we mentioned above, Dan had put a $45,000 deposit on a 2020 Tesla Roadster. Then, he racked up enough referrals to get a free Roadster, so he canceled his original reservation. During the cancellation process, he learned that he’d have to wait some time for his refund. In addition, something strange happened to his referral program page.¬†We’ve included the video with the details below.

Video Description via What’s Inside Family on YouTube:

Not long after the video was released, Dan reported that Tesla sorted everything out.

What a bogus video. No car in sight.

What a bogus video…. No car in sight.

What a bogus video. No car in sight.

Wait a minute. The video I saw had an electric blue Gen 1 Roadster.

That was Daniel who was wearing the blue. Oh Ok I missed the first vid. But Daniel is wrong about one thing – the trunk is much larger than the Lotus Elise – as there is room for a set of golf clubs in the old Roadster.

So much for the present day status of the electric car market… If you wanted a nice roadster 9 years ago you could get one, but 9 years later now you can’t. Just like you could get a nice VOLT if you wanted a practical PHEV, but soon you won’t be able to get one from GM…. Sounds like we’re going backwards to me.

Yup 4 demerits…. All the big experts who know all about the Roadster, better than myself since I only drove it everyday for 4 years.

I had a chance to spend a day with a red Roadster in NYC back when they were first introduced and there was no dealer network. Demos were done out of the Classic Car Club’s old Manhattan location. It was crazy to watch it doing silent donuts! (Not by me!) But, it was also scary to drive through Manhattan as people continually stepped in front of or directly into the car at intersections. Ear buds and cellphones aside, you just couldn’t hear it or see it! Too low, too quiet! But, that little stealth fighter was fun as hell to drive. So quick and nimble. The Lotus influence was apparent. It will always be a favorite ride.

Lotus ‘influence’ – ??? !!! It is a Lotus..

I had a similar wait time to receive my Model 3 refund. Since it was over a year, I also had to receive a check and it took about 6 weeks. Tesla confirmed my address 3 times…yup, still live here. Finally got the check. Though I was able to cancel online.

Collecting cars. Thats really what protecting the environment is all about…

Are you suffering from the delusion that buying the computer you used to post that comment was “protecting the environment”?

Perhaps you should put your own house in order before you start criticizing others.

You did not understand anything at all.

Things are meant to be used, not collected. Collecting is the harm of production without the benefit of using.

Collecting things that are good is like throwing good things away. Nobody should collect anything and especially not cars, as they need lots of resources to be manufactured. One car per adult is way more than enough.

a few points
1) The car was already in existence and did not need to be built
2) It is an EV so in many places it will consume electrons produced by renewable means.
3) apart from consumables such as tyres, brakes, wiper blades etc which apply to any car made today or in the future it is about as environmentally neutral as you can get.
