    Off topic galore

    A few years ago I saw an aerial photo of a UK block of flats after a storm with a long row of garages behind. All the garages had had their roofs torn off and the garages were exposed...... The garages were all FULL but it was with storage and junk - barely any cars...! No wonder the roads look...

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

    Yeah licking my wounds here....earlier this year I thought it wise to 'diversify' my share holdings which were all in Tesla (since 2014) So I pulled out $35k from Tesla and invested in Cathie and Tasha at ARK. Tesla up nearly 50% and ARK down 25% or something - painful I should have just...

    Whilst things seem to be fairly quiet and taking in account the brains and experience on this thread, please may I ask a question related to V2H/V2G? I'm planning on converting my home-built sportscar to an EV but it will only be used infrequently for fun. This means that there will be 15kWh...

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

    In the past I've been frustrated by how crappy micro cars were and wondered why some better manufacturers didn't market really classy small cars for those who want a small foorprint but not a rubbish car. Then along came Audi with the A2 and subsequent 'luxury' small cars - appealing for many...

    Despite reading this forum regularly, I may have missed this discussion. When Sandy Munro was asking for 'interesting' cars to tear down (he ended up speculating about the Cybertruck), I was shouting for him to tear down a Chinese Model 3 to see if and how it is different to the his earlier...

    Funny how one can get such conflicting views of Tesla. Read this thread and it is euphoria, swop to the Model Y thread and there are people posting that Tesla make rubbish cars full of defects not worthy of a modern car. JD Power posting Tesla near the bottom for delivery defects followed by...

    I might have missed it but can anyone give me a link to the streaming of the Senator drinking her urine? Bet she replaced it with Koolaid!

    I reckon it is from 2017 - Lutz mentions Tesla making 100k cars a year and trots out all the old gargabe - Assembly tent; alien dreadnought; no profitability etc etc. Unable to raise funds etc. Lutz has not 'got it' for years.... Question for me is why InsideEVs should run it now highlighting...

    I have followed Tesla since 2013 and bought my first shares at $100 and have since acquired more along the way. I am long and Hodl-ing …..One day I'll get a Tesla – maybe even from share profit! For 6 years through the Model S motor whining; the Model X delays and hubris; the Model 3 painful...

    Is single peice casting a good or bad thing?

    FSD cars won't crash! Pity about the other idiots but it'd be their insurance...

    You do wonder how the cultural bent influences this. I don't think it is unrelated that the US has a big motor/petrol culture; Italy has Ferrari/Maserati/Lambo/et al and Germany has always prided itself on its car industry and specifically its advanced ICE cars...………. Maybe the manufacturers...

    It puzzles me why Tesla cannot get quality control right?

    As a Tesla shareholder and potential Tesla owner, I am both bewildered and irritated by these QC issues and wish Third Row or someone at an ER event would directly ask Elon about this. Maybe they have but I haven't seen the response from the horse's mouth..... It feels to me like someone has...

    I've been pondering the public response and thereafter the regulators' response to the obviously cleaner air when we get to the end of lockdown. I have this deep sense that the young 'Gretas' and health practitioners of the world will not sit by quietly whilst the world just re-pollutes its...

    I do really wonder what will happen if the seriously reduced traffic in many cities results in far cleaner air quality and then things try to 'return to normal' in, what 3-6 months?, a year? As ICE cars reappear en masse the degradation in air quality will be apparent to all and sundry very...

    Watching this corona drama from afar - on a farm at the tip of Africa (and even then we have started having cases here in South Africa) Was pondering last night at what point is the medicine/cure more of a problem than the illness? If the world economy is trashed while the emergency measures...
