    Still no mention of when Model X deliveries will ramp up? Any reason given for the delays, or should we assume supplier issues?

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

    The X is barely trickling out at maybe a few deliveries a day. Unless the issue is resolved soon, the X won't contribute much to the total this year. Lots of people have been waiting well over a year to get their X.

    Snippiness 2.0

    Honestly, your whining has gotten old. VERY OLD. Please move on to the other auto maker that has an EV as good as Tesla's and a charging network as large and reliable. Just buy an audi or a GM - either way, just STFU. I'm tired of hearing your bullshit. MOVE ON!!

    Uhhhh... Self presenting doors? Also, if you don't like self presenting doors, the door handles on the X are far easier to use than on the Y.

    "these are iconic brands with, I'd say, ALMOST exciting vehicles coming to market". They're not exciting, but ALMOST exciting! LMAO! I'm gonna hang my hat on a company who has "almost exciting" vehicles on the way to compete with Tesla.

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

    A quick question about the proposed EV tax incentives. If we're going to give people $7500 or more to buy an EV, why wouldn't they make it even better for the environment and treat it like a cash for clunkers type thing. You want the $7500 rebate, then you have to trade in a gas vehicle. It...

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

    I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned this before, but I sure wish Tesla would STOP providing the delivery numbers at the end of the quarter, and instead, release them at the ER. It really seems like most analysts and other non-professionals haven't gotten really good at predicting the revenue...

    Refreshed 2021+ Model X and Model X Plaid waiting room

    You are correct. I re-read your post and you did specify "software rollout". My mind instantly thought of the hardware date. I have that October 2014 date in my mind becuase while I was looking for an S in 2015 and 16, I narrowed my search to cars made after September (used the VIN) to ensure I...

    Not sure if anyone has already corrected this, but AP1 came out in October 2014.

    That is a positive? You must not have owned a Tesla yet. If so, I'm not sure how you could see physical buttons as a good thing. I litterally hate trying to drive a car that still has all those 1994 buttons all over every surface. Just look at the new wagoner steering wheel - looks like it's...

    How do you "rarely use the wipers" on your X? Do you not use the automatic wipers?

    Most people won't get what you're saying. But, I've been trying to explain this to people also, but your method is far better than mine. I'll try another one - "video games don't kill, humans do".

    Extremely Disappointed With Model S Range When Driving on the Highway at 35F

    You conveniently left off the time it costs to actually stop at the supercharger. You counted 3 minutes. But, I'm not even going to stop because I started with a full charge. So unless you can teleport your car from the interstate to the supercharger, and then back onto the interstate, stopping...

    Extremely Disappointed With Model S Range When Driving on the Highway at 35F

    Actually, the smartest and best way to travel in an EV is to slow down. You cannot charge as fast as the extra energy you spend going faster (you will spend more time charging to replace the extra miles used than you saved by going faster). The only time this doesn't apply is when you can easily...

    So my wife says to me today - "can someone please take Elon's phone? He's costing me so much money." Then I reminded her - "he turned your $12,000 investment into a million dollars, why would you complain?". She stared at me and said, "I'm not complaining." Conversation ended. On to the next...

    It always amazes me how many confessions of genius selling of Tesla stock at its most recent high we hear about every time there's a major pull back. Hell, some even have to create a new username just to get on here and spout about how smart they are and how they told everyone. Odd that no one...

    Supercharger - Pooler, GA

    Actually, the story is a little simpler. We were headed back home from a trip. I had planned to stop at Hardeeville, SC to add a few miles (only needed 10 miles to make it home). But, I decided to call the Parker's and see if the chargers were on. They ensured me they were. But, I made a backup...

    Wow! This is an exciting day for me. I have followed the Supercharger build out since 2013. I remember when there were 17 superchargers! And all this time, I saw SO many people being the first to report a Supercharger being online. Well, today is finally MY day! I am here in Pooler charging...

    I have come to the realization that Elon Musk is solving man's problems as fast as he can. The only reason we're doomed is because he won't live forever. But wait, that just means that the remaining population of the world only has only one responsibility - keep Elon alive until he fixes...

    No it didn't. There is no line - just the crazy logic Tesla uses to deliver cars. No one understands it, but there is a ryhme and reason.....we think. Either way, you'll get your car about the same time regardless.

    Really? I'm an old, out of date relic as compared to the internet, and even I knew what it means. I've seen it on every forum I've ever read. In fact, some of the most humorous posts are FTFY or FIFY (fixed it for you) posts.

    They can definitely affect public opinion. Google "Tesla" and then click on the news tab. The last 2 months are a barrage of NTSB and NHTSA negativity.
  31. Buddyroe

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

    OK, you did find something close enough - doesn't have to be exact. I've just never seen it - out of thousand of car crashes and fires, I just can't remember, nor find and example of it. Maybe I am just paranoid and these are all just good people treating Tesla fairly.

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

    Fair enough. Thanks for replying. Note however, being presented with a video is far different from requesting a video from the public - which is what I asked if anyone had ever seen before. I cannot find any prior example of the NTSB requesting video from the public (that doesn't mean it...

    So @MP3Mike, you down voted my comment. Can you please give your opinion on the NTSB requesting videos of the Tesla wreck in Florida. Can you tell me a single other time they've made such a request of the public? NTSB Seeks Video of Tesla Crash
  35. Buddyroe

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

    Are you really THAT naive? Have you not seen today's news? The NHTSA is now asking the public for videos of the crash in Florida. This is becoming nothing more than a smear campaign - well actually, much worse.

    Those of us who lived through 2000 and 2008 are forever tainted and gunshot. I literally wake up at 4:30am EST every morning to check if the market is crashing. I'm shocked every day that it isn't. My finger is ALWAYS on the sell trigger. Sad way to have to live.

    I've seen a TON of FUD over the years, and have probably spent too much time fighting it on various forums and article discussions - but the range of their performance vehicles vs epa rating is not one I've seen. Can you post an example of what you're talking about?

    You'll rarely or never see a Supercharger in the southeast Georgia, south South Carolina area with more than 2 stalls being used. This includes Savannah /Metter / Brunswick GA, and Hardeeville / Hilton Head, SC. It's basically the same for all superchargers in Georgia except the ones in...

    I'm cracking up at all the people who down voted me, but hadn't even heard of Tesla when i invested in January '13. I got the right to be a little worried.

And the funny thing is, morons here will love for denying the 800 pound gorilla. Most of the time, these people hate you, but now that you're the enemy of...
