Today marks the completion of a 2-year wait for a Model 3. It's been a really long wait. So much anticipation. I've literally scoured google daily for Model 3 news for 2 years. And now there's a Model 3 in my garage, and I didn't think I'd have that many problems, but I do. Here goes....
1) I have this Hyundai Sonata that I dunno if I...
To be more precise: Hit me, then ran over my face, then stopped the car, took a look at me, decided he had to kill me as now I could identify him (illegal immigrant, didn’t want to get shipped home....his words later on), then got back in the car, ran over me again in reverse, then dragged me 50’ as my body got wedged under the engine bay.
After what seems like forever, I am finally driving my own Tesla !
Model 3 delivered today.
Just in time for my birthday too !
Over the past month or so I'd been doing some photoshops of the Model 3 in different colors in one of the threads here. Someone suggested we make a downloadable brochure with only the official Tesla colors. It seemed others liked the idea as well. I went ahead and thought it might be a decent idea to put a website together for this...
In the past 4 months, WS analysts covering Tesla have on avg taken their 2019 TSLA EPS forecast up 202%.

Alright guys, help me out with my thinking here.
The key figure in Q1 earnings that was overlooked is how operating expenses are barely increasing.
Q1 2018 operating expenses = $1.05B
Compared to a year ago Q1 2017 = $925M
So in the course of a year, Tesla’s quarterly operating expenses grew just $125M. And this is while going from zero...

This is a phenomenal article and lays out why @Tesla is so far ahead (and will remain so) of even the most prestigious premium auto brands. As @elonmusk stated, it’s not about a...
This is just such a nice way of putting it (ending paragraph of the letter):
As we have transformed from a 100,000 per year unit carmaker into a ~340,000 unit per year carmaker, our earnings profile has flipped dramatically. Sufficient Model 3 profitability was critical to make our business sustainable – something many argued would be...
Alan -- we're on it. Will see if we can help.
Q1 18 - "Tesla can't produce the Model 3!"
Q2 18, Model 3 starts to ramp - "Tesla can't make a profit on the Model 3!"
Q3 18, Tesla is profitable - "This is as good as it will ever get. Only profitable because pent up Performance demand and now ASP and margin will go down from here."
Q4 18, record deliveries/revenue/profit...
381 anyone? Yep, it's been a good day. Last Friday I suggested we'd be trading in the 360s this week, and it was a true statement, for all 17 minutes worth from market opening before TSLA moved to the 370s and later the 380s.
So, what happened? Over the weekend word spread about the possibility of a spending bill that might include a...
here's my latest update with all new information. don't understand why there is large amounts of whitespace, i tried editing but couldn't fix.
there are upside to my cash forecasts due to in-transit drawdown. 1b free cash flow is not out of the question and there's even a shot at possibly 4b in cash by end of 18q4 - that would match tesla's...
Our delivery was the same. Zero parking at the store. They had a guy in the lot valeting and pointing people to empty
spots as they became available. Store was packed inside. This was on a Friday afternoon too. Tesla was great with my son's delivery.
For an outstanding high school effort we told my son we'd be buying him a model 3 in his...
"Leave Tesla Alone"
"It's possible to walk into a dealership and buy a car that drives itself on the freeway about as safely as you would if you were driving the thing. That car also doesn't use gasoline. And it's as fast in the quarter-mile as a Corvette Stingray. The future is here, as William Gibson once said; it's just unevenly...
Q3 earnings will be this Wednesday, October 24th!! Tesla Announces Date for Third Quarter 2018 Financial Results and Webcast | Tesla, Inc.
I have to say I was pissed after watching the 60 minutes story. Here’s a true American success story.....full of reasons why, with all our flaws, America is so great. Tens of thousands of people worked tirelessly, incessantly, led by a brilliant leader (immigrant), to accomplish the impossible for the betterment of humanity. They should have...
So random datapoint - one that you've heard a million times before, I'm sure. I'm in the US now, and while my test drive is tomorrow, I took a sneak peak by the Tesla store and saw a Model 3 for the first time in person. Ready for the story you've heard a million times?
Gorgeous. Way better than the pictures, and I expected a lot from the...
Profit and Beyond
As long as Tesla depends on access to capital to survive, it will have certain characteristics of a financial company - venerable to short sellers and market sentiment.(and often times market sentiment caused by short sellers) This was part of the downfall for Solarcity. Because of this, the Moody's downgrade(potentially...
Just got approval to manage project to install Tesla chargers at work.
From project proposal to budgeted in less than 72 hours.
And about 30 people waiting to test drive my Model 3.
Attached initial request, I was busy it’s sloppy writing have mercy.
1. I am a total "car guy", I was a mechanic for years for VW/Porsche in the USA, and Renault Citroen in Switzerland. Some of my friends still bring their ICE cars over to me when they have an issue. I look under the hood and I am like "What the F#%ck is all this [email protected]!"
2. I had a call a few days ago from a friend who is a total BMW/Porsche...
