Maximizing Space for Trunk & Cabin

Due to the fact, that space is very rare in the Tesla roadster, the team is always looking for ways to maximize the available space for the trunk and cabin.


One possibility is shown here:

First aid package fixed with a hook-and-loop fastener at the side of the electronics module just above the left rear wheel. The rear deck is covering the first aid package completely. Instead this stuff would had to find its place somewhere in the trunk or the cabin.

Flights all Checked In!

It is a strange new world! In today’s world of technology and computers gone are the times when you check in at the airport.

I am flying with EasyJet from Gatwick to Zurich on 28th May and I have checked in for the flight, and for the return flight on 9th June, already. I feel a little strange sitting here in my lounge, 2 weeks before the flight, having already checked in with my boarding passes  already printed!

I prefer it this way but how times are changing.
