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.
I believe Porsche intends to be accurate with this number. Earlier there was a slide deck that showed the clear trade off between charging speed and ability to hold charge after few hundred cycles.
Porsche (as well as many luxury car brands) design cars for the primary purchaser only. Since the majority of their customers lease or buy and only...
"Gated" actually means MORE complete than "produced". "Produced" could need rework; "gated" cannot. The disinformation media, of course, wants to claim that it's the other way around. :sigh:
Friday was consolidation day after that massive move on Thursday. Shorts didn't take the day off, and we saw what appears to be a mandatory morning dip, two successful efforts to keep TSLA from running away before noon, and a game of whack-the-mole for the rest of the day. With TSLA still well above the upper bollinger band,...
After the SEC spent a ton of man-hours looking at Elon's tweets, it is only fair they extend an equal effort on the real problem we see every trading week, which is stock price manipulations and media-shorts or analyst-shorts connections that may nclude insider-trading.
Let's get a discussion going on how best to proceed.
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.
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...
they tried calling me but could not reach me. I had $7.2 million margin loan and they told me the amount was too large for them to wait
so they liquidated well over half of my position at a loss. sadly, I had bought even more stock just before the ER
I ended up liquidating all of my Tesla stock at the open today for a total loss of $5.3 million...
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...
They have not confirmed that it was a mistake yet. (They did confirm that they were packing everything supertight in CAD before they built the first Model 3 line, and then... they got very quiet and haven't talked about it since then)
I'll tell you why it was a mistake, though. If you have to reconfigure/redesign one station on the line to...
As a mathematician it figuratively drives me insane when people argue past each other because they are using different definitions.
It would be helpful if the two of you could agree what “share” means. Once you do I think you will actually agree with each other. For example, you could call them physical shares and virtual shares.
If Sam, or...
We'll concentrate on the ap2 cars:
http://www.freedomev.com:80/develop-2018.39.2.1-13-cbbcef4da9.img - the MCU1 binary. (MCU2 TBD)
Take the side panel on the right hand side out, disconnect white round connector cable from autopilot unit and plug into that cable yourself (it's ethernet in disguise) using a ready made cable or a pinout like...
Everything KK mentioned was brought up discussed within 3 days of the unveiling of AP2.0. And has been discussed ad nauseam ever since. There are entire threads and sections of the forum dedicated to those discussions.
I just want to caution others to keep their expectations in check...it would be extremely unusual for Tesla to surprise in a positive way. The last time I remember it happening was the 2014 Detroit auto show when Jerome Guillen told us about 6900 deliveries in the previous quarter. Of course, if there was such a surprise, the stock could go...
You don't think they'll be able to refinance that? Seriously? Sunbird, do you even know what that non-recourse debt is or how it works?
It's *secured by income streams*. The auto-backed notes are maturity-matched with the lease income. The term loan (secured by a particular package of solar lease income streams) will be...
Here's what car companies will probably look like in 2019:
Debt is equal to 3 months of revenue or 18 months of operating cashflow. Revenue is growing at >30% per year.

As someone who actually drives an Hydrogen FCEV - I am responding honestly with our experience over the last 9 months.
Hydrogen so far is turning out to be a major pain for us, and we live in Southern California with access to 5 different stations between Del Mar and Costa Mesa. We first test drove the Mirai 3 years ago at an promotion event....
Bert’s Media Player 8.0 2.42.40 Observations & Workarounds
I updated from 2.36.108 to 2.42.40 upon receipt this morning, and spent several more hours trying to identify what is going on with the “new” Media Player. Consider this a delta update to my last couple of long upstream posts, with the same caveats.
NET is even with a lot of people’s...
Toni Sacchonachi (ugh): Question manages to spin opex control negatively. (Responses say nothing new.) Manages to suggest that gross margin is only because ASP is high.
(My comment: What a jackass.)
Elon says "the problem with asking questions like this in detail is that it's a rapidly changing situation; literally if you asked in...

"Just spoke with the US Air Force comms. They're saying reports of them looking into Elon Musk's pot smoking are inaccurate, and they're just looking into media queries about it. "We don’t even know what the process is for these things""
