Tesla Factory Employees Drive Some Surprisingly Cool Cars – RoadandTrack.com

Strangely enough, the account was even able to spot a car with a Tesla-issued parking ticket. While it would probably fetch a high price on eBay from some Tesla mega-fan, we’re not sure how it could be legally enforced, since Tesla is not the police. The Instagrammer seems to indicate that the tickets mean nothing.

The owner of this sweet EJ-era Honda Civic with extra-wide wheels doesn’t seem to care that he’s blocking some cars from being able to leave.

something makes me doubt that this car is really an EV… yet there it is, in an EV PARKING spot. #ICEdEV

A badass white Camaro was parking prominently in the ‘EV-only’ section of the lot, despite the high likelihood that there’s an internal combustion engine under that grimy hood.

it might be time to add EV motorcycle parking spots.

Teslas aren’t the only electric vehicles showing up to work at the factory. Someone brought a battery-powered bike to work, and plugged it in before starting the day. Unfortunately, the rider took up an entire parking spot in the process.

Whatever the situation may be at Tesla’s plant, we’re glad we’re able to see all of the cool vehicles its employees bring to work everyday. There’s definitely a vein of gearheads at Tesla, which could help explain cars like the Model S P100D, which does 0-60 in 2.5 seconds.
