    Tesla's Self-Driving Beta Fleet Is Generating An Immense Amount Of Data

    That, and their charging network - I'm really surprised another manufacturer hasn't skipped trying to do their own network and piggybacked on Tesla's. Seems like this car making thing could be just to get the other revenue streams off the ground. Like Google and any one of their apps - it's...

    Tesla Model 3 With 4680 Pack: Estimated Charging Time, Power, And Size

    Well, technically if you read the article and whiteM3SRplus didn't you are more enlightened. He's just asking for forgiveness because he didn't read the article and consequently isn't as enlightened. I think you should grant his request. Give a man fish... whiteM3SRplus just wants to eat, for...

    Are Tesla Vehicles Really That Much Better For The Environment?

    Dunno - I got $5k back from Tesla for giving up Supercharging, so we bought a solar array. My math was focused on generating more electricity from our panels than the car would use, which we've achieved. Solar feeds the grid in the day (when energy is at high demand) and draws at night (when...

    Are Tesla Vehicles Really That Much Better For The Environment?

    The Netherlands will ban the use of coal in electricity generation by the end of 2029, so it's great they're getting their house in order now so the future will only be cleaner.

    Are Tesla Vehicles Really That Much Better For The Environment?

    We got solar panels installed a month ago and we're producing way more energy than our car consumes. After incentives / rebates, it was only a few thousand dollars so that refund I got for foregoing Supercharging is now paying for at-home charging.

    The Tesla Effect Is Making Luxury Cars Lose Value Faster Than Ever

    A few things come to mind. 1. it's all in percentages, so they may have sold more cars each quarter but the others sold EVEN MORE - you can't infer volumes from this. 2. Didn't Tesla start pushing all their inventories overseas around that time? 3. They had a huge backlog of orders so the...

    Model 3 Software Update 2019.9.x

    Ugh - totally agree. Red on red is next to impossible to see unless you really look closely.

    Confirm Performance Stealth (non-PUP) $5,000 refund

    Thanks. Seems easier to do that than to issue $5k checks to do many people, so at least you got that going for you.

    Confirm Performance Stealth (non-PUP) $5,000 refund

    I thought track mode for all Performance was just an idea. Do you have a tweet to reference?

    Taptes new wireless charging pad

    No issues for me. I was gonna take a photo with them on top of each other but they're identical in height so there's no good way to do that. Instead, here they are side by side. My guess is there were production issues more recent ly resolved? Received mine last week.

    Taptes new wireless charging pad

    Mine doesn't slide around at all. It fits so tight I had to remove the lip timet to get it in. I just don't want it coming up, which is why I'm adhering it.

    Taptes new wireless charging pad

    I bought one of these January 4 after reading this thread. It arrived 1/16. My Note 9 with a case barely fits in there (really tall), but with a push, it's locked in. I'm seldom in the car long enough to get a solid read of the charging graph, but from the 45 minutes I had it on yesterday, it...

    Confirm Performance Stealth (non-PUP) $5,000 refund

    This is all really encouraging! I submitted a request last week. I feel like I'm gonna buy a set of winter tires with some of the money... kinda a quid-pro-quo. Problem is, it hasn't really snowed yet so I don't know how well the stock tires will hold up. LOL

    Does a full battery weigh more?

    The full battery will weigh more so keep that in mind. Ideally charge is 20% for those runs.

    I ordered a Performance 3. The car at delivery was an AWD.

    After tens of thousands of deliveries, they must be finally getting the details figured out.
