With the recent allegations by some Tesla drivers on the failure of Autopilot on their cars and the media jumping on those incidents, this is a quick primer for every Tesla driver (including spouses, siblings, sons and daughters) and Laura MacCleery, VP of Consumer Policy and Mobilization for Consumer Reports:
Autopilot by definition is a...
So, I just finished some initial testing of my latest modification to the yellow P85 (the one that has retrofitted autopilot hardware). Haven't gotten a lot of pics or videos together yet (roads have been wet from melting snow, so not great conditions for testing), but I can't resist sharing some initial details.
So far the car is a ~570HP...
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...
I appreciate all the expressions of sympathy. I did not have rear-facing trunk seats. My daughters were in the normal second row, with their seat belts on. At the time of the accident, my car was stopped on the freeway (as was the traffic ahead of me). I believe the car that rear-ended me was traveling at roughly normal highway speeds.
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...
"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...
Anybody notice the tone of the callers? I didn't hear even one of em say "great quarter fellas"! Seems as though this has been said in the past. Maybe they were in such shock? Or Short?
NICE QUARTER FELLAS, REALLY, NICE JOB!:):)
Go Tesla! Congrats to the whole Tesla team, You guys ROCK
Hi everyone –
This week, the service team hit a global customer service satisfaction record. The team has done a fantastic job on what we control currently: our own service centers. We’re now turning our efforts on the centers we don’t control: accident repairs in body shops.
The body shop in the OP article did not begin repairs on the...
UPDATE, FIRST DRIVE!
Extremely uneventful, but needless to say this is the first time the car has driven under its own power in the 10 months since I've had it. The car was declared a complete loss approximately one year ago. And here she is in all her naked glory.

Elon just tweeted:
@elonmusk Any update on plan to install solar arrays at Supercharger stations?
@FredericLambert There are some installed already, but full rollout really needs Supercharger V3 and Powerpack V2, plus SolarCity. Pieces now in place.
@elonmusk Supercharger V3? Now I'm curious. What power out are we...

Congrats to all the Longs. 2016 was a long hard slog.
Here comes $300. It'll happen soon.
Back in November one among the cohort of mostly anonymous short sellers who regularly tweet to each other, tweeted that Curt Renz is a "dimwit" who has been giving horrific TSLA advice for years. With apparent sarcasm the tweeting short seller then recommended that Curt "double down" on TSLA. I did.
It means this:
Tesla: We're gonna build Model 3 in 2017
Shorts: You're smoking crack
Tesla: We're building a big ass factory in Nevada to make batteries
Shorts: You're gonna go bankrupt
Tesla: We're installing robots next week to build the 3
Shorts: I'm doubling down
Tesla: Lots of folks want to buy our batteries, and we're making lots of them now
Also, my younger daughter, who was killed in the crash, was 10 years old, and about to start 6th grade in middle school next Monday.

Saying Tesla is burning cash is like saying someone building a house is destroying lumber.
