Innovative Tesla Man ponders to himself, "hm, how can I combine as many hip startup tech ideas together as possible at the same time? What about AirBnB... Tesla????"

Yes, this guy has actually listed his Tesla as a two-person bedroom, filling the Model S P85's spacious interior with a 36"-wide air mattress, a pillow and multiple sheets. The listing claims "it goes 0 to Sleep in 4.2 seconds!" ...MORE
Here's the airbnb page:
The Space
Stay in the World's First TESLA HOTEL!

Price includes a Tesla pick-up & drop-off at Sky Harbor Airport IF our schedules match up! Or use the UBER app to get to the Tesla Hotel. It's less than $20 - or first time Uber users get it FREE with Promo Code: uberTeslaRenter

The airbed in back sleeps 2 in climate controlled comfort all night. Since the Tesla uses NO gas the Tesla's A/C or Heat can run all night without any problem locked securely in my attached garage. You can set the mood with your selection of any Internet music you would like on the huge 17" monitor. How often do you get to sleep in a $118,000 Electric Car?

The Twin Airbed is 6'6" long and 36" wide. The space in back is even wider, 40" wide near the wheels and up to 56" wide near the rear doors so you have extra room to move about. It comes with clean sheets, pillows and a blanket or comforter if you like.

**Sorry, NO NBA Players allowed. Despite my love for basketball, the Tesla is just too small for anyone over 6' 6". Please...stop asking....
