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

    I don’t agree completely with this (as someone who had both stock options and RSUs). These days salaries are competitive in the marketplace, and RSUs are more like bonuses (unlike in the old days when one went to work for a startup with starting salaries way below the market rates). You don’t...

    https://fiatgroupworld.com/2022/06/13/the-tesla-model-3-hits-global-top-10-best-selling-cars-in-2021-full-ranking/ No surprise here. But, it takes only 3 years from the launch!

    If the goal is to massively scale, then a smaller (and cheaper) EV will be needed. I expect Elon to announce model 2 in Master Plan 3!

    Then they can "hate" me. I should clarify that I do not "hate", rather "despise" them. For example, I despise those people who still think the election was stolen (despite there is zero evidence and many many audits). (I expect this response to be deleted)

    Yes, only if this person still can think logically and willing to change their opinions subjected to reality.

    Navigation without cellular reception?

    Then the only explanation is temporary loss of Gps signal?

    Navigation without cellular reception?

    you can not search for a new destination, but routing to previous destinations still work as GPS still available. Searching requires access to central server through cellular connection.

    Wow. Even they tried to restrain themselves, they are clearly so frustrated. There is no question Tesla is the only game in town! I can also confirm that car companies try to recruit youtubers to influence buyers (not surprisingly). I happened to run into a youtuber on my last trip to South...

    They help to make Tesla more profitable as they pay (hopefully) for their service (beyond what we pay)?

    We bought the Y because it has enough room to sleep in the back when we go camping. Now this is an excellent idea for a few days a year when it’s hot enough on the PNW! 👍

    I am waiting impatiently, but I don’t think I am ready to pull the trigger yet as I expect more pain to come. I usually don’t think about backdoor ROTH conversion this early in a year, but this time my ROTH gun is loaded and ready to go!

    I agree. I think Biden is fundamentally a good and decent human being. He can see the truth given a chance as opposed to the narcissistic egotistical racist maniac “I alone can fix it” scum bag. I can’t see anything good coming out of a guy who can only think of his own interests above all else!

    Should I be worried? [about this tire damage]

    This just happened to me yesterday when I did not take a wide enough turn and the rear wheel caught the curb. So far there seems no pressure loss on the tire. I hope the OP would come back and let us know his outcome. Will glueing work? Thanks!

    Plugging/unplugging is just one of the issues. The heat generated by long charging time is the most worrisome issue (it could melt the plug)!

    Elon has a great scientific/engineering mind, but he’s not the wisest mind that we can see through many of his previous actions/tweets. To expect him to come up with fixes to a problem inherent in human nature is illusional (imho)!
