    Elon getting into the tunneling business!

    Everything Elon starts has implications on Mars. This is genius like Hyperloop. Once crews start landing on Mars, they will need to build a significant underground habitat that can protect against any type of harsh weather phenomenon. There will not be time to improve the technology when they...

    We want some Model 3 Leaks, renders, sketches !

    I think Elon should troll Fisker and bring out a Karma onstage with Tesla badging. He can then say "April Fools! It is April 1st in Australia, right?'

    Model 3 superchargeable?

    We really haven't seen the Solar City dynamic introduced yet. Solar City's business plan is to build out a massive solar grid which produces energy to sell to consumers. I can see them partnering up with Tesla to use the existing real estate at superchargers to produce excess electricity which...

    Short-Term TSLA Price Movements - 2016

    Shorts are toast. When Countrywide Mortgage was headed towards bankruptcy, Anthony Mozillo (CEO) was selling off his shares at the maximum rate he could without having to file an SEC disclosure and alert the media. If the people closest to the top are buying as much as possible, how can shorts...

    Conspiracy Theory

    A 35k car is doubly expensive from what?

    Looking for a place to stay in Carmel area during the concourse August 21st...

    If they are not already booked up, Bernardus Lodge in Carmel Valley has 3 electric chargers, 2 dedicated for Teslas. I heard they are adding 16 new suites by July.

    Conspiracy Theory

    While the car may seem like a lot of money to the average consumer, it hardly seems to matter when it comes to innovation. In 2007 many people were using Motorola Razrs which cost about $250 (a bit on the higher end for 2007 era cell phones). When the iPhone came out in '07, it cost double...

    Tesla Supercharger network

    Does anyone have insight about Tesla rolling out solar panels and Power Walls at existing Supercharger locations? I believe Elon had said that they would be doing that at some point and that capital expenditure could explain a slow down in new supercharger rollout.

    We want some Model 3 Leaks, renders, sketches !

    Aren't there still some 60s and 40s out there without supercharger access? Why would the econo car have it if they don't? Will they get grandfathered in? Wouldn't those 60 owners that paid 2 grand for it go crazy if that happened? I don't see a scenario where they get access without a charge...

    In 2 Years "Summon" Will Drive Model S WHEREVER YOU ARE!

    Pretty surreal scene that would be. *Imagine sitting in your car on the way out of town to escape an impending hurricane. In the heavy traffic, you notice swarms of brand new driverless vehicles leaving dealership lots and clogging roadways. Your nightmare of overwhelmed highways and...

    Nasty retro look

    We want some Model 3 Leaks, renders, sketches !

    The chopped top look is very aesthetically appealing, but really limits visibility. I wonder if using cameras and screens could improve the visibility to that of a normal car while improving structural safety?

    Charging incident in Norway Jan 8, 2016

    Sounds like an opportunity for an entrepreneur. Since the car and supercharger communicate (charge port door opens on car), why can't someone design a protective sleeve for the charger plug that retracts as it's inserted into the car? That way it can protect the connector plug if it's dropped...

    Model X may qualify for 50% business write off.

    Hey, was this passed and signed into law or did it get changed/deleted?

    {Resolved-Yes!} Can Front and Falcon Wing Doors (FWD) be open simultaneously?

    I do wonder if the very first Model X mules and prototypes might have had some issues due to panel mis-alignment. There could have been some earlier incidents of damage that cause the Tesla employees to think it's still a possibility to happen.
