Separate names with a comma.
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
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.

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.
A little peek into cell production.
OMG such bad analysis in this thread.
1) TM just dramatically raised the gross margin
2) Fixed lingering demand concerns. Smart fence-sitters now know they can buy future-proofed cars
3) Invoked the fantasy of obsorbing Uber and Lyft's valuation, which was a stock market darling theory for months
Bad? There is no bad. nonsense claims:...
I agree with you. But I have bolded a sentence to point out, it isn't just the cost of health care, petroleum can actually kill the people you love. I bought my Model S in early 2013 because my wife was dying of leukemia at the time that was likely contracted from her childhood near a petroleum facility. I felt sick to my stomach to put gas in...
I'm going to say this the nicest way possible - F*** you Bob Lutz :D
Tesla Energy... it is beginning:
Tesla converted an entire island to solar with new microgrid product developed by SolarCity
Note that there was no advanced notice, and not part of the 300 MWh already installed.
