First time Turo user? Get $25 off: . For weekday trips, pickup/deliver MUST either be before 10AM or after 6pm, UNLESS it is an SFO delivery scheduled 24+ hours in advance. Cherry, original 2012 Tesla Model S Signature P85. Finished in rare and gorgeous Signature Red Pearlescent paint over Black Performance interior. The Signature cars were offered in essentially one configuration: fully-loaded. Every option available in 2012 ticked off. 470 hp and 443 lb·ft of peak torque. RWD. 250 mile cruising range (at ~65mph) is perfect for a special occasion, an extended test drive if you are considering a new Model S, or a California road trip to Napa, Tahoe, or Monterey. This Model S provides you with state-of-the-art performance and forward-thinking tech unrivaled by almost any other vehicle, wrapped up in a classically beautiful package. This is the car that won multiple awards including 2013 World Green Car of the Year & 2013 Motor Trend Car of the Year and figuratively shocked every automotive enthusiast and journalist who got behind the wheel of one. It was lauded as one of the safest, fastest, most efficient, most aerodynamic and most technologically-advanced vehicles on the road. It still is today. I'm an active member of the Turo & Tesla communities and strive to make this an easy and enjoyable experience for you. Model S is an incredibly easy car to drive, and I can give you a rundown of the few basics you'll need to know beforehand if you’d like (I used to work at Tesla). If you are considering buying a new Model S or X, use this referral code when doing so: In addition to Tesla’s signature 17” touchscreen, the car is equipped with: •Tech Package w/ intuitive and easy turn-by-turn navigation •Smart Air Suspension (dynamically changes ride height and is manually adjustable) •Ultra-High Fidelity Sound System •All-Glass Panoramic Sunroof •21” Grey Turbine Wheels •Carbon Fiber Rear Spoiler •Black Nappa Leather Seats with Red Piping and Black Alcantara accents •Alcantara Headliner •Obeche Wood Gloss interior accents •Privacy Parcel Shelf •Supercharging (0% - 80% in 40 minutes at Tesla Superchargers, always free) •Dual Chargers (up to 80A charging - 0% to 100% in 4 hours on 240V/80A charger) Please note: 2012 pre-dated Tesla’s camera/sensor technology and as such this car is NOT equipped with Autopilot/adaptive cruise control. Another benefit of my Model S is that all of your “fuel” is free. The following is also free: •FasTrak Pass for bridge tolls (tolls are charged to your account after your reservation) •Roadside assistance from Tesla or Turo •Free charging with Tesla's SuperCharger and Destination Charger network (see navigation in car) [ChargePoint, NRG eVgo, or Blink charging available upon request) •Spare mobile charging cable to charge off a regular 110V or 240V outlet (3-5 miles per hour charging via 110V outlet, 20-55 miles per hour charging via 240V) •If you have any questions while driving the vehicle, you can feel free to call/text me. Tesla roadside assistance is also available in case you run into any issues.

The car can be delivered to SFO, SJC or anywhere between San Francisco and Santa Clara/Campbell/Los Gatos for $40. Deliveries between Millbrae and San Carlos are FREE (including SQL), as is any delivery for a rental of 7 days or more. It is available anytime shown on the calendar and can be picked up almost any time of day- I’m relatively flexible. If the exact dates you need aren’t available, I may have another Tesla option for you (subject to availability), please email me at Discounts available for weekly & monthly rentals, frequent clients, and Surf Air Members The car is usually charged up to ~90%, which should give you ~220 miles of range to a charge. If you need to drive further than that in a day, you can program your route into the car’s navigation system and it will automatically route you through any Superchargers (fast & free stations along highways) where it is required so there isn't any guesswork on your part. You must be 25 or older and have a clean driving record to rent this Tesla. Please NO SMOKING and NO PETS in the car


  • Are you able to deliver to the airport or my house/hotel?
    Yes, so long as you are on the peninsula. Delivery is free with rentals over 7 days. There is some flexibility for extenuating circumstances, feel free to contact me with specific questions.
  • Do I have to return the car fully charged?
    No. If it's a delivery, please leave enough energy for me to safely get home (at least 30 miles).
  • Are you flexible with mileage?
    I am typically not flexible with mileage limits, but I am forgiving about small overages as long as they're discussed in advance. If you need more miles than offered, I am happy to discuss extra mileage with you in advance and we can work something out. Disclaimer: Turo usually charges $1.00/mile overage "penalty rate".
  • Do I have to return the car clean?
    Preferably yes- in approximately the same condition in which it was issued. I won’t nitpick small things. If the car is returned in an excessively dirty/dusty condition that requires special cleaning, you will be billed for cleaning at cost
  • Any additional questions before booking?
    Email me at

Wade is a great guy and he has a terrific car. He was super flexible in arranging pickup and dropoff points. 5 stars in every way.

Excellent host with clear communication about all the details of the car. The car was fantastic, the best car I drove ever. My Honda will never be the same again, sad that we don't have that car in Brazil =P

Wade was fantastic to work with! Beautiful car, and incredible customer service. Would certainly rent again next time I’m in the Bay Area.
