Does Tesla not sell the long range RWD in stores anymore?

They haven't for a while. I wish they did. I think they sell them in China

I tried to get a loaner/demo but wasn't successful. The problem with used is that you don't get the incentives.

Meaning that they won't ticket for it unless they were already ticketing for a different infraction?

I just read through this entire thread https://forums.tesla.com/forum/forums/thanks-dan (yea, I'm a little too bored right now.) All I can say is wow! These people really have their heads stuck up their a$$es. That magic 8 ball guy is a real piece of work.

Lol, Dan is now something that forum throws around whenever something goes wrong or when they need something. Lots of fun threads.
It's a terrible forum anyway. TMC is much better (and is where I sold my wheels).

That's kinda funny. I have zero interest in spending any time on that forum but the Dan threads were entertaining.

Scary stuff in this Twitter thread.


Quote
1/ Whatís it like starting an anonymous Twitter account in an effort to expose a powerful billionaire of malfeasance? The simple answer is this: Donít do it. On the occasion of todayís new all-time high in Tesla stock, I felt it might be instructive to share my story.
2/ I started this account in Feb-2018 as a social media experiment. I wondered if combining crisp data charts on a highly polarizing stock might capture a decently sized fintwit audience. As @georgia_orwell_ can attest, I assumed I would run out of material in a month.
3/ Much to my surprise, the account found its niche and after a few months I had something like 4-5k followers. I enjoyed the banter, even the back-and-forth with various bulls. I hadnít blocked a single account and took pride in that fact.
4/ Then this happened, and everything changed. Mind you, I have never shorted Tesla in meaningful size. This was never about an investment for me, I have been very clear on this point from the start, etc. Nonetheless, I was to pay for expressing my beliefs.
Image
5/ What follows is a partial list of things that have transpired since then. First, my Twitter account received so many hacking attempts that it was suspended by Twitter Security. I then implemented two-factor authentification. Granted, I should have done that from the start.
6/ Shortly thereafter, my personal iTunes account was hacked, despite the fact that neither my iTunes email or personal cell number were associated with this Twitter account. Coincidence? Iím not a big believer in coincidence. Putting that genie back in the bottle was tough.
7/ An entity with which I have a professional association received anonymous electronic communication implying that continuing to associate with me would not be beneficial to them because I was TC. The people running that entity know Iím TC and blew it off.
8/ A few days later, their internal email system was hacked. The hackers impersonated employees of that entity and tried to wire significant sums of money to an offshore account owned by the hackers. Coincidence? Iím not a big believer in coincidence.
9/ The forensic investigation into that hack is ongoing, but because the hackers did not succeed in stealing any money (the people running the entity were on high alert and intervened immediately), Iím not hopeful the perpetrators will be found.
10/ I noticed this car parked outside my home. I know the cars on my secluded street. This car didnít belong. There was a male in the driverís seat. I observed it for several minutes. I took this picture and started walking towards it. It sped off before I could get a plate.
Image
11/ Same story with this car. The rear door was open. Odd. I took this picture and started jogging toward it. Off it went.
Image
12/ This Model 3 very carefully scoped my house. There are no Tesla owners in my neighborhood. Trust me, this is something Iíd know.
Image
13/ This Chevy SUV scoped my house. Based on the plate (not shown here), it was a rental car.
Image
14/ And on it goes. The moral of the story is this. Donít mess with the powerful members of our society. It is a losing endeavor. My story is nothing compared to what Tripp, Balan, Hansen, and countless others have gone through, but I sure can sympathize.
15/ Our cultural rot runs deep. I personally donít plan to give up. F... it. YOLO bro. I have the resources and the stubbornness to see this through. My time will come. Trust me.
