So, having got through this rodeo twice with the Model S and then the Model X, I thought I might share a couple of thoughts to ease the next 18 months or so:
Coming here every day will drive you nuts--98% of the "news" out there is unfounded BS. Its fun to speculate, but getting too heavily invested in every Model 3 thread that springs up...
alright folks, below is the meat of my model.
one sentence summary, i look forward to $1.11 non-gaap eps and $0.61 gaap eps, revenues 2.7-2.9 billion.
please remember forecasting is an art not a science, and i could very well be wrong in many ways. my model is posted as a "here's what someone else did" so you can do your own work and draw...
(note: I know that there was another thread that was recently posted on this topic, but I'm needing to post a new thread with instructions so that we'll get the most popular questions here asked at the shareholder meeting.)
I was informed by Tesla Investor Relations that they will choose some of the most popular questions from this specific...
Electrek has them:

Hi Everyone -
The peak charging rate possible in a lithium-ion cell will slightly decline after a very large number of high-rate charging sessions. This is due to physical and chemical changes inside of the cells.
Our fast-charge control technology is designed to keep the battery safe and to preserve the maximum amount of cell capacity...
Tesla will be assigning you two numbers. A Reservation Number (RN) and a Reservation Sequence Number (RSN). The Reservation Number (RN) is a number which identifies you as a customer. This number should be kept private and not shared. The second number they will assign you will be the Reservation Sequence Number. It may be a while before you...
On the Road!
Driving a Tesla is a bit different from driving a gas car, or even most electric cars. On a daily basis, there is no concern about “range anxiety”. Owners expect their car to have a full “tank” every morning, and have enough range to do whatever they want. After a while they never look at the gauge. What the new Tesla owner...
Hi all, I have a solid tip for all of you new or soon to be owners. I emailed [email protected] and asked them for my Slacker Radio username and password, which they quickly replied and provided back to me within a few hours. With that info, I went to the Slacker website on my Mac and logged in, went to account settings, and changed the...
Since there seems to be more interest, I am posting my experience below. I originally PM's it so as to not clog up the forum. Good luck and I hope it is helpful.
This will be long and I apologize. But the only way I can explain it is by sharing my step by step story. It took me about 2.5 hours doing it for the first time. Now that I know. I...
Figured it might be best to have a consolidated thread for all of the information and hints that Elon is dropping on Twitter right now around the Model 3, since every time he tweets another thread is made just for that one instance.
Is there a way to make a wiki page that is editable by everyone? If not I can try and keep up with updating ad...
I've said this now so many times I've lost count:
1. When you enter the geofence your car knows this because of it's internal database of locations. It immediately sends an alert to the mothership AS SOON AS YOU ENTER.
2. The mothership will then decide using it's secret formula to decide whether you are due for an update (I estimate only...
Here are some preliminary thoughts on the new 5 band EQ. I measured this with my iPhone and only spent about 5 minutes on this so it's subject to change once I have more time to analyze:
These readings were taken with my volume set to the first '6' level (Going from 5). Also I have the upgraded sound with the ultra white synthetic seats and...
I will send the link to IR for possible comment.
I find the quick and easy way to tell is the shape of the tail lights from the side. The Model S angles down, and the Model 3 angles up.
Probably my final update on this subject: Nothing directly from IR. From trading emails with Electrek it seems this individual probably has an axe to grind/credibilty question.
After years of dealing with the coolant pump running almost 24/7 here in hot sunny Florida, I finally decided to do something about it. Since the Roadster just taps into the existing air conditioning system for ESS cooling, I just connected 12V to the ESS cooling solenoid. Now I can activate battery cooling anytime I want. No more having to...
After nearly two months, we finally settled our property damage claim after being rear ended in our 2016 Tesla Model S 90D. Insurance claims are something many of us dread about owning a Tesla, a risk we acknowledged going in. I thought I'd share the experience and the outcome in the hope it will help someone else. As I shared...
When I got my X my iPhone 6 Plus wouldn't charge with my UAG case. The lightning connector wasn't long enough to extend into the bottom of the phone. I disassembled the connection kit and added 2 small pieces of double sided 3M tape to the back of the lightning plug to push it higher up. It now fits fine without the need to purchase a...
Couple of points from someone who spent a few decades at another car company:
OEM tire selection is based on engineering criteria most important to achieving program objectives and certification. Top among them, lowest rolling resistance compounds are spec'd for best efficiency (fuel or electric). These compounds have the downside of...
See attached. You don't need to remove the window but this is your first time ;)
Hope it helps, I'm typing this from my iPhone on a hike with the family
