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

    Maybe Boring will tunnel over to one of the supecharger locations eventually and just exit the loop right at the superchargers. Still need FSD to park and someone to plug it in but eventually you could avoid the Vegas City streets...

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

    Maybe you aren't aware of the scope involved. There is no single end of the line for cars to park at. It's going to be 50+ miles of tunnel with something like 100+ cars and 50+ stations. There isn't room or electricity in the current station design for superchargers. They've already spent...

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

    They don't live in the tunnels 24/7 they have to exit to get charged eventually. You can't remove the controls until the FSD can make it all the way to the supercharger via Las Vegas city streets.

    Aldrich Bautista updated the Model Y price chart again. He went with an abbreviation I hadn't suggested for the Austin 4860 Model Y.

    3 more people have upvoted this post this morning. Mods in the past have said we should document acronyms ("TLA" three letter acronyms are bad, right?). AWD = All Wheel Drive LR = Long Range SR = Short Range I'm sorry for the confusion I caused, Let me try this again. I see the MY lineup...

    A $24k drop in price was never discussed. I was talking bout the lowest possible cost variant of the Model Y which is a SR variant. You are the only person in this thread that has some how decided to take $42,000 and apply it to a LR variant. again we were talking purely about am ultra...

    Giga and Zen you both seem to have read my reply without keeping in mind the scenario it was written to address.

    Both as a consumer and a stockholder I'd rather see him push the Austin 4680 SR AWD price into the low 40s (Say $42,000 + Paint + choice of EAP/FSD). We know that after chips catch up to demand this year they will be cell limited. I want to see them reduce price on SR AWD Model Y to increase...

    Gas stations haven't had to be open 24 hours a day since the 1980s (or whenever internet and card readers became common in your locale). I still remember the first time I was in the middle of nowhere in Iowa in a one red light town and needed gas at 2 am. The only gas station was "closed" but...

    why do they leave the hatch open on some cars and not others? Seems to be done in batches but a larger number of cars with hatch closed.

    Which either means they did something totally stupid like compare total fires in a year (of all cars on the road no matter the age) to sales in a year (of only new cars) which would be mixing units or they did something crazy complicated and reviewed all the fires to find which ones applied to...

    because clearly it's a rate and more than 100,000 were sold? 25 per 100,000 is to 52 per 208,000 assuming math still works like it did when I was in high school. Does that not make sense to you?

    https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/posts/6831340/ don't be fooled by TMCs interpretation/summation of the link. Is EA selling electricity at or below cost on purpose or are they just slower than Tesla to adjust pricing? Could affect the so called supercharger advantage.

    The US has been on 120v and 240v since sometime last century. Regular outlets are 120v unless you are in some weird sort of setup where there isn't modern electrical service.

    Lets say starship launching several times a week gets to $6 million per launch for the ship/fuel.
