Our twins just got their DL. They have never driven an ICE, been in Tesla’s since 2012. I want em safe in the car and adding to a better world. Had to spring for the LR but their lives determine the value. Years ago, totaled a car and got ins money to replace it with an identical vehicle (Acura Integra) had a chance to pay an extra 4K for a...
Just an observation:
Many people here and on wall street seem not to be able to realize the notion that a persons motivation can reach beyond enrichment. When it is inferred that some sort of scam is occurring where Tesla is concerned is a reflection of the person making the charge rather than reality.
The mission is: accelerating the advent...
Note the following, important difference: at this point (end of Q3/2018) most Tesla shorts are pretending that they are thinking like pragmatic accountants, they are projecting a (false) image of knowing the truth behind the numbers.
Most of the loudest ones are doing this for several reasons, none of which derive from an honest contrarian...
Combating FUD at the personal level....I was buying some dog food at the local independent animal feed store. A woman with a newish Honda CRV came up to me to ask about the Model 3. She immediately went into all the FUD talking points about batteries failing and running on coal. I explained about the fudsters, I discussed each of her points...
Chicago Tribune - this evening:
Chicago taps Elon Musk’s Boring Company to build high-speed transit tunnels that would tie Loop with O'Hare
“We’re taking a bet on a guy who doesn’t like to fail — and his resources. There are a bunch of Teslas on the road. He put SpaceX together. He’s proven something,” Emanuel said of Musk. “The risk — with no...
So my father - Tesla FUD victim and huge huge Model S/X critic - checked out the Model 3 today and well, it's his new dream car now. He'll order a Lemur after a testdrive. Daaaaaamn. :eek::eek::eek:
Today is a bittersweet day for me since I took delivery my Model 3 but this will also be my last post on TMC for reasons explained later.
First, trip down memory lane:
Late March 2016
I got in a line at 4am, with a bunch of crazy tesla fanboys like myself!
So I was moderately high up the queue.
I got impatient, so I...
This is the tipping point.
Usually after an ER I write a comment the next day to read between the lines of the numbers and Q&A and give my analysis why what we heard is actually good or not so bad and why I recommend to stay on course.
Today I do not need to do that because the results speak for themselves. Finally most of what we longs...
In 2008 I converted my wife’s Prius to a plug-in hybrid. I really enjoyed it for 3 days…but then was frustrated by the gas engine constantly coming on.
So I purchased my first BEV in March 2009. It was a 2003 Toyota RAV4-EV that I bought on Ebay. I really enjoyed it for 3 weeks…then my wife performed a hostile takeover, because she could...
So uh.....no more bitching from me........I ordered the MR M3 tonight!!! :)
Time for my favorite game.
“The honeymoon is over for the iPhone.”
Tim Moynihan, Crave, the Gadget Blog from Cnet 11 January 2007
“Again, I have said this before and I will say it again; Apple has done the industry an enormous favor because they basically told the world expect a media player as a software feature on a good smartphone. As the...
That is Donn Bailey, former Ford dealer and author of low quality and self-serving Seeking Alpha hit pieces against Tesla when he was short TSLA, in a nutshell, blaming the customer.
BTW., your SA Article in April 2018, which made misleading and false claims about Tesla's inventory numbers, looks even more ridiculous today.
Based on your input, we have decided to remove all software performance reductions tied to frequent max power usage. These changes will roll out with our next software update (in about three weeks).
We had put these reductions in place to proactively protect the powertrain from wear and tear. Instead, we will monitor the...
Well, I did my part for the cause. Holding strong on my long position and just pulled the trigger on my Model 3 order! After 10 years of wanting a Tesla, it's finally happening!
I'm at Thunderhill Raceway in Willows, CA for a track day today. When I arrived, there were 4 Model 3S with manufacturer plates on them. One in particular had 20" wheels with Michelin Pilot sports, and *huge* brake rotors. I snuck my camera under the front wheel and caught a photo of the front CV axle, showing it to be dual motor. This was...
Thanks to @FredTMC, I was able to drive his Model 3 for about 30 minutes yesterday.
I was in shock all day.
The car blew me away. Way beyond my expectations.
Electrek put out an article saying the Model 3 is all we hoped it to be. Wrong. Completely wrong. It’s not what we hoped it to be. It’s way beyond that.
The car is truly amazing...
OK, that just crossed a line for me. For the first time ever I'm contacting Congressmen I know to urge the investigation of the Wall Street Journal. At the very least the SEC needs to interview everyone responsible for the timing of the release of that report.
Nice video to cheer you all up while the SP misbehaves...

It is with a hint of schadenfreude that I have to break it to you, you're more screwed than you seem to think. The problem (for you) is that there are more shares of TSLA outstanding than there are in the market cap. You're still going to have to buy-to-close, in a market with a lot less liquidity than it currently has. It is entirely possible...
I want a $40 Million dollar fine levied against the WSU by THANKSGIVING.
And I want the Reporter banned from the internet for 3 years.
Who's with me?
