    They have a Semi on order. I don't know how they plan to use it to test and report on it.

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    I'm wondering how this fits with the facts that Tesla built a 4680 factory in Austin (in addition to the Fremont pilot plant) and is building another in Berlin. Seems like a lot of construction and expense, and potential for future expense to retrofit or replace, if they haven't figured out how...

    But America faces difficult challenges, and these reasons you cite are so insignificant and inconsequential.

    We don't know what happened. A $250,000 settlement suggests a weak case and Elon and SpaceX wanted to put it to rest.

    Anti-China feeling and rhetoric among those who will come into power is such that American companies might be banned from doing business in China, which the prez talked about doing during the last administration. It seems likely that fossil lobbyists and others will have sufficient influence...

    Rooftop solar is a fad that will soon be over. An increasing number of states and maybe the federal government will mandate electricity pricing changes to make them so uneconomic that only a few rich people will buy them. Rooftop solar harms revenues and profits of electric utilities and the...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    Vladimir Putin can kill everyone in the United States anytime he chooses to do so. Some underlings might also be able to take this initiative. We would retaliate, but this wouldn't matter as everyone would be dead. The only way to hopefully prevent this is effective management of difficulties...

    We don't know what parts if any Tesla sourced from Ukrainian suppliers for the Brandenburg plant or how long re-sourcing might take. This might be a non-issue for Tesla, but we don't know. And there are potential Russian suppliers. There was a report about Tesla sourcing aluminum from Russia...

    Apparently dealers can start taking orders again in March. Cadillac hasn't said what the prices will be for this next round of orders. The original prices you mentioned are still shown on Cadillac's web site, but I'll be surprised if there is no increase.

    Some OT posts are interesting but they're supposed to be posted elsewhere. One problem with that is there used to be a place to click at the top of these pages to see a list of the latest posts in all threads, but this feature disappeared. It's available elsewhere but that's more than one click.

    Cybertruck

    My useless prediction: in the US the 4-motor CT will cost 90 or 100, and the dual motor will be priced at 70 or 80. No tri-motor. In a few years they will probably introduce lower priced versions. Maybe a one-motor. Tesla underpriced the CT. Chevy priced the launch edition Silverado at...

    Texas is a populous state with a lot of potential customers. Also Tesla now lives there and needs goodwill. Sticking their finger in the eyes of Texans is a bad idea. Tesla will live with the situation until it is changed, even though that might take a while.

    There's some possibility the economy will crash and take TSLA down with it, and also people's jobs. You would still have the loan. I'm not predicting this, but it's a realistic possibility.

    Plaids are still available for walk-in purchase in the NE, as someone reported a few days ago. Your pic illustrates the higher seat height and greater room of the Y vs. the 3. I wish the NYPD had ordered 250 Y's instead of 3's, as I suspect they would be happier with them. A Fremont PD...

    Today I checked out the new Tesla site on the Carlisle Pike west of Camp Hill near Wegman's. They have a sign on the door that separately lists hours for Sales and Service. Sales hours 8-7 Monday-Saturday. So I guess this will be a store as well as a service center.

    A relative recently did a day trip in an R1T. This person dislikes Tesla's spare interiors but was impressed with the quality and detail and the quiet power in the Rivian, and also with the storage tunnel and the pull-out kitchen. No sale though due to happiness with two year old ICE. When I...

    The recalls are for the Bolt that was introduced in 2017. LG and GM might have made good progress since then. It's also possible they haven't and they're nowhere. I don't think we know.
