Best reactions to your Air

Here's a new one, "it looks like an orca on land." Not sure if it was a compliment or not but interesting reaction. 🤷
Well, Orcas are sleek, fast, highly intelligent killing machines. So I’d take that as a compliment.
 
Yesterday, my wife's girlfriend comes by in a brand brand new Model Y to pick her up to play golf. Girlfriend parks in front, takes her clubs out and walks to our house. Wife asks: I thought you were driving in your new Tesla?? Girlfriend responds: hell no, we are talking your Lucid.
 
Heard last night while stopped at a stoplight on my way home....

Them: Gesturing for me to roll down my window.

Me: Rolls down the window.

Them: Bunch of kids Cheesin'... Is that a @LucidMotors Air? The 1.8 0-60 one?

Me: No baby, that's Sapphire!!

Them: How fast is yours?

Me: 0-60 in 3.2.

Them: Sweet! Show us!

Me: Say less... Blue Rally Bear Activated. #LaunchMode
 
I have come out to my car in a public parking lot with people taking pictures; I’ve had a guy riding a bike do a “double take“ and lose control and fall after seeing my car; but the craziest reaction was just yesterday. We live in the suburbs of Philly where there is a significant deer population. Deer are so commonplace and comfortable around people and cars that they usually don’t even react. But while driving slowly through my neighborhood yesterday, I passed a family of deer that I SWEAR, watched me drive by with the same look of utter amazement that I often see from people.

At low driving speed, Air emits OM sound like spaceship approaching for safety. That’s probably what startled them. 😊

haha….that thought did cross my mind (and you’re probably right) but if you saw the way they stared at the car and continued staring after I passed them…….

My Wife has said the car sounds exactly like a spaceship when I'm pulling into the garage.
 
Doing 35mph recon laps on Daytona with professional race car drivers in the back seat. Put it to the floor for a couple seconds and from the back seat "holly shit".
 
Parked next to Tesla model Y at Walgreens. Came back and the Tesla owner who was sitting in his car gave a thumbs up, rolled down his window and said “”you did good”!!!
 
Leaving the club one night a stranger approaches me. "I've seen this car here a lot but didn't know whose it was. Like it?" I responded I really do with a few comments and highlights.
Then he says "I can't wait to drive it"
Guess I was expected to hand him the key and say have at it.......

Well, the first three words sealed your fate.. drinks or not.
 
I had a new one today. We pulled up behind a Kia EV6 waiting for a parking space. The driver got out and after talking for a minute about how nice a car it was, he did a full 360 around the car taking video as he walked.
 
Roadtripped to LA last weekend, caught a lot of folks checking out the car, then looking inside for some celebrity and quickly getting disappointed
