    General Discussion: 2018 Investor Roundtable

    Did your Waymo friend have military background? Asking because I saw many - just anecdotally - former military at GF1. Their leadership is an asset for the company.

    General Discussion: 2018 Investor Roundtable

    I’m not computer literate, but, there is an “Edit Profile” on Mr. Tripp’s bio page link. When clicked, I don’t see any password requirements to make any - including photo upload - changes. All the data fields are editable — and there is an empty email address field to confirm changes. Would...

    Tracking short interest

    Sorry to ask this... I’m with Fidelity. Does Fidelity notify me or ask me if they lend out any / all of my TSLA shares to a short seller? Thank you!

    General Discussion: 2018 Investor Roundtable

    Scenario: I own Jan 2020 calls strike 700. Question: If buyout - to take private - came in for $800/share — would I sell the option immediately or take possession of the shares immediately and net the delta (minus cost of of options) or would I risk losing the delta if the privatization...

    Laguna Beach, CA accident, title claims "autopilot" involved.

    Personal responsibility no longer exists --- unless we're talking about Zolpidem.

    Shameful Aerowheel noise at low speeds

    In what 'shopping center' did this take place? If it was Tysons Galleria, than --- rather than your wheels --- it was probably the pedestrians' credit cards rubbing together in their leather pants. If it was the Springfield Town Center, than --- rather than your wheels --- it was probably the...

    So who actually has configured their P or AWD?

    You could have just deleted your pointless / rambling / speculative post. Or, at the very least, you could have checked your grammar. "staying the obvious" ???

    Performance Model 3: Excited or Disappointed?

    I am impressed by the P3D and 3D specs; and will be glued to YouTube when the track testing videos emerge. Regarding negative posts, I think they fall into two camps: (1) many people had negative posts pre-written and ready to submit - regardless of the specs, or (2) many people have lost...

    Model 3P-D 0-60 prediction?

    Three character tweet --- that would blow the auto world. If Elon tweets three characters (where the characters would be the 0-60 and a link to the PM3 specs), it would be such a great announcement. Something like this: 2.9

    I was hoping for more lame comedy from you, but -- I guess -- this will do for now. Time to get back to your memes!

    Ideas To Help Prevent Auto Pilot Accidents...It's Time To Get Real

    These four words apply to almost every aspect of life. I only wish -- like child molesters and bank robbers -- we could start calling these people out; a wall of shame --- incentivize "stupid" to not be... On the TMC splash page --- show photos, names, and the actions of these morons Simply...

    Hypothesis - Tesla only builds AWD Model 3 starting in July

    Agree with OP. Demand is off the charts. Simplicity. Higher GM rates, Safer. One Tesla - All D. Precedence with S and X, The yeahs will overwhelm the whiners.

    Dual Fatality Model S Crash/Fire: Fort Lauderdale, FL May 8, 2018

    Maybe a new thread? I know most people have the attention span of a newt, but, this thread appears to have been -- originally -- specifically related to a crash in Fort Lauderdale, FL on May 8, 2018.

    Dual Fatality Model S Crash/Fire: Fort Lauderdale, FL May 8, 2018

    Is the following point - in part or whole - known, or just assumed: Front left/right windows were in rolled-up position AND remained unbroken after accident prior to two deaths. What part of the vehicle did the rear passenger eject? If the rear passenger was ejected, would this suggest that...

    Dual Fatality Model S Crash/Fire: Fort Lauderdale, FL May 8, 2018

    AGAIN: I have read of many deliveries that were made in demo mode —— NOT REQUESTED BY THE CUSTOMER. I have never heard of an explicit customer request to limit top speed. You have only reiterated my prior statement. Thanks so much!

    Dual Fatality Model S Crash/Fire: Fort Lauderdale, FL May 8, 2018

    Sorry for the confusion — I have read of many deliveries that were made in demo mode —— NOT REQUESTED BY THE CUSTOMER. I have never heard of an explicit customer request to limit top speed.

    Cool - I look forward to reading the official report (rather than aunties claims and your speculations).

    Dual Fatality Model S Crash/Fire: Fort Lauderdale, FL May 8, 2018

    I promise you have my full attention. Seems like a LOT of things would need to click for all of this to work (or kill). I look forward to official (special aunty doesn't count) word on any actual alterations to top speed; don't care about what might have been requested or wished for after...

    Dual Fatality Model S Crash/Fire: Fort Lauderdale, FL May 8, 2018

    Sorry if this is already discussed... --- The SPECIFIC car in which this kid was ticketed (112mph in a 50mph zone in MARCH 2018) is the SAME CAR that the family is now claiming had a -- per their request to Tesla -- 85mph limiter? I call BS. If daddy contacted a local Service Center with a...

    Dual Fatality Model S Crash/Fire: Fort Lauderdale, FL May 8, 2018

    Simple Question: Have you seen anyone ever request this on a Tesla Customer car? I know it's fun to speculate --- sort of like all of the Tesla SUA cases caused by hackers. Tin Foil Hat ............

    Dual Fatality Model S Crash/Fire: Fort Lauderdale, FL May 8, 2018

    European teenagers can handle the responsibility of speed/acceleration like they can handle alcohol. In the USA === it's no responsibility and SUE SUE SUE!

    Dual Fatality Model S Crash/Fire: Fort Lauderdale, FL May 8, 2018

    Good point ---- acceleration, rather than top end, probably played a role, too. Can we get a drug test?

    Dual Fatality Model S Crash/Fire: Fort Lauderdale, FL May 8, 2018

    I'm begging Tesla... --- Respond to the "parents had Tesla alter the car so it could not exceed 85mph" statement --- Pull logs and tell the public how fast this freak was driving Please do this ASAP I am not claiming that Tesla could not perform a max speed alteration. Yes, I know they do...

    Dual Fatality Model S Crash/Fire: Fort Lauderdale, FL May 8, 2018

    "The parents had Tesla alter the car" This makes zero sense ---- I know you're probably repeating hearsay, but this sounds -- at best -- naive, and -- more likely -- a lie.

    I wish they would schedule a glitzy-night-time event for a P3D reveal! Imagine, seeing Elon in a sport-coat twice in a month!

    It's just reflecting an object on the garage ceiling. This stealth wrap is awesome; well done!

    Sudden Unexpected Acceleration today

    After the ramp-up is complete, of course, I pray Tesla starts hiring additional in-house counsel with a single focus of suing the pants (and dresses) off of these FUDs.

    Unresponsive ISA

    I am not knowledgeable regarding ISA structures and logistics (backup support or teams). I’m fairly confident - however - that you’ll be - more than - excited and satisfied on your scheduled delivery day. And, as retribution, you’ll need to keep your promise and will need to post a photo with...

    Late 2014 S85 with AP1, 7k miles, beautiful original brown

    I love seeing examples -- like this one -- of pre-owned Teslas in which the owner(s) treated - cared for - the cars in a manner so as to make the new owner(s) feel like they're getting something really special that can last forever. Maybe due to lower volume, most of the original Roadsters seem...
