Want to drive a Tesla Model S but can't afford to buy one? Well, you're out of luck. But if you'd like to at least sleep in one of the $118,000 electric cars, you can do so for just $85 per night.
That's because, as Engadget points out, Phoenix man Steve Sasman has listed his Model S as an Airbnb room. He calls it the "world's first Tesla hotel" and explains that with the car's seats folded down, it has an airbed in the back that fits two (as long as you're not taller than 6'6"). You'll sleep in it while it's locked in his attached garage, and can also use the kitchen, bathroom, and living room in his condo. Although the check-out time is listed as 10am, Sasman respectfully requests that you be out of bed by 8am so he can drive his car to work. (You can go back to sleep on the couch in his condo after that, if you want.) You'll be nice and comfortable, because you can run either the air conditioning or the heat all night since the car doesn't run on gas. You can also listen to "Internet music" and you'll have two remote-controlled, battery-powered candles at your disposal "to help set a fun camping mood," he says. And as for seeing how the car drives, if your schedules match up Sasman will pick you up at the airport, or arrangements can be made (for an additional fee) for Sasman, a commercially insured limo driver and part-time Uber driver, to take you on a tour. "I've already slept in this thing three times so why not let other people do it," he explains to CBS 5, though he admits he hasn't had any renters just yet. You can see photos of the digs on his website. (This man was fined $2,400 for renting out his condo on Airbnb.)
