    German Electricity Tariff (Octopus) [Octopus + Tesla collaboration]

    Peripheral to this topic but as it's germane to Germany, I write here - A north German friend ranted thusly to me over the weekend: "As nice as those (Grünheide GF) numbers are, I still have no idea how Germany's already challenged electrical infrastructure is going to handle the increased...

    Wiki Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    Breaking news: Ford sold more F-150s last week than Tesla has sold Cybertrucks over the past forty three years.

    As too many participants appear unable to refrain from proffering their personal opinions about Senator Joe Manchin, EVERY POST referring to him directly or indirectly now will be specifically inspected for whether it has enhanced the quality of this thread....or not.

    Near-future quarterly financial projections

    I should think the used Toyota Corolla, BMW 530i and so forth gravy trains end on the sooner side; to the extent that Tesla's star is ascendant AND that there appears to be a mismatch between DD and SS at the prevailing price point bodes very well for continued strength in the Used Tesla sector...

    Near-future quarterly financial projections

    Thank you. I have been focusing strictly on the "Service" portion of that agglomeration, a portion which, according to Mr Musk from some years ago and since referred to on occasion, that for Tesla, service is not to be seen as a source of profits. Whether or not that has changed, one can posit...

    Off topic galore

    The only problem that this Thread Originator has with @SunCatcher's entry is that for most of my life - although I otherwise greatly enjoy Kipling - I've viewed his If as some of the most mawkishly sentimental pap to come out of the Victorian-Edwardian eras. No good New Englander can wholly...

    Near-future quarterly financial projections

    @The Accountant : For this quarter, you have dropped your "Services and Other Margins" down to a minuscule -2%. Did I miss any explanation as to why you think they've been able to pare that down so handsomely? Surely it cannot be just from a larger denominator?

    In effect yes, it can be ignored. The best a succesful non-binding shareholder proposal can be considered is as a demonstration of the Sense of Shareholders' Attitudes. More accurately, it is such a sense among those shareholders who voted. As is, of course, every shareholder (or political...

    I keep waiting for the Labor Union discussion descent down the rabbit hole to die out. Any more of it and I or another will indeed take action. The persistent need by certain members to Have The Last Word certainly is tiresome for everyone else.

    I told someone I would provide him a link to a good walkthrough of the Grünheide plant. Is there a consensus as to what might have been the best of the bunch?

    There will be more needed than the mere 336 fewer batteries to explain the 200 lb weight reduction.

    Some unexpected color here: Two days ago I was trespassing on a dock, one owned by a barge company that transits between Alaska and points south. “Why / What are you doing here?” is the normal kind of question such activity engenders. What I was presented with, though, was 100% confined to: “Are...

    I've already done this. I HATE SDG&E with an unbridled passion. I thought you lived in California?

    Back on 30 Sept, @StarFoxisDown! posted a Twitter feed from “Tesla China Analyst” that 52,000 was the domestic sales #. From these CPCA data, that shows to have been spot-on (and scarily so). With that, my admonition that he’d better be right, or else…. no longer applies.
