My name is Sri Harsha Garapati. I recently graduated with a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from USF. I am a tesla enthusiast and I had passed couple of rounds of phone interviews for a CAE position at Tesla. I heard from HR that tesla is going to fly me to California for an onsite interview. I had already made a visit to tesla service center on US 301 to look at the cars and had a small chat with the technicians there about the technology and design related matters. The visit to service station is much before even I started to apply at Tesla and I visited because I am an ardent fan and after a lot of research online I thought seeing it in person.If there are any tesla model s owners in tampa and if you are planning to be around USF area please let me know I would like to meet up and have a small chat with you regarding your experience with the car and about the driving dynamics. If you are generous I would appreciate a test ride. I would be very glad if some one is willing to meet.
