    No. Unsafe at any Speed was a hit piece.

    Safety score says forward collision warnings when none ever occurred

    I had the problem too. Traced it to having to park within 12 in of the wall in my garage. Tesla is aware of these types of problem. Also, set AEB to the medium position if you aren’t already there. Parallel parking can trigger this too, if you get within 12 in ov the other vehicles. They can’t...

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

    When you put most or all your money in a company engaging in a high risk endeavor dominated by a person who is both a genius and a quirky person( to say the least), this is exactly what you get. Krugerrand is right. Oh I’m talking of Apple. This is far from the first time I’ve seen this...

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

    To me , seeing Elon selling stock is a good thing. Please remember that he has minimal income and finances his life with loans. By now this has to be a huge overhang on his financial situation. Personally, I don’t think he needs to control such a high percentage of the float to protect Tesla...

    If Tesla CEOs start maximizing the stock price instead of running the company for long term success, we might as well buy GE.

    Another charging battery life thread

    You guys are worrying too much. I charge my Raven S to 90% routinely . At 38000 miles it’s down 13 miles from new. I live in a hot climate that is supposed to be harder on lithium ion batteries. Frankly, based on trips I make routinely, I’m not sure it’s lost even that much.

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

    My SWAG is that All the difference in price between the LR and the Plaid is profit. The profit on the LR would more than cover the cost increase on the Plaid. I also remember Elon saying that the refresh is cheaper to produce. I paid middle 80s for a Raven with FSD, so I suspect the profit on a...

    Changing the subject, it looks like Tesla has saturated the US market for S Plaids. Today I have 12 available for immediate delivery and 3-7 weeks for a special order. Doesn’t seem to make a difference how I option it.

    The dance on the ev bill isn’t over yet. Remember that the Dems only have 50 votes, so there are 48 more Senators who can hold up the bill to get something for their constituents. This could turn into the worst frankenbill of all time, at least til the next one.

    Back when Boeing was first delivering the 787, they had to ground the fleet because of fires in the large cell lithium batteries they were using. I believe Musk commented about that event. The problem was traced to a defect caused by the manufacturing process, since corrected. There have been no...

    That goes along with my reporting that Plaids are readily available for purchase in Florida. Ten this morning.

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

    The worst car decisions I’ve made came from buying on practical reasons. Why? Because I didn’t really like them and sold early The car I kept for 20 years was totally impractical, but I loved it. Living on a small island on the Pacific at the time, my neighbors thought I was crazy buying a...

    W w Different subject. Tesla not choosing to sell them in Europe has nothing to do with the current availability in Florida. Fly in to Orlando or Fort Meyers or…. and pick one up. Export it. Yes, I know it isn’t easy. If demand is really slacking here, they will open up export sales. Your time...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    In Florida there are several Plaids available for immediate delivery. There is no reason to order one.

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

    Now it’s seven. A variety of colors and accessories. They are at list price. Personally, I think Tesla simply has surplus. Q C would have to be horrible to have several showing up every day. People over in the S delivery thread would be screaming their heads off.

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

    Changing the subject, is Model S production getting ahead of demand? In Florida there is no reason to order a Plaid. I have a choice of six Plaids I can pick up today. Not a bad drive to any of them.

    In my area McDonald’s and Walmart are paying $15-18 an hour plus paying for college courses. Our lawn service was paying $9 2 years ago. Now they can’t get help for $18. lower classes are catching up for a change.

    Read back in this thread in about 2016 - 2017. This happened several times and Tesla did rebadge several cars. To put in 90’s they had to change the software to the 90 version, making these cars 90’s.

    He should take them to small claims court. Big companies hate that. Then, if he wins, enforce the judgement by seizing a Tesla asset. I’ve seen it done.

    I live just down 95 from Chuck. People are running red lights at an incredible rate. I agree it’s probably safer.

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

    Back to the S and X, the profit on a Plaid is probably about the total selling price on a 3 SR. 100,000 of them is probably equivalent to 400,00-500,000 Model 3s.

    I don’t see the sails as a problem. I’m 5’10 “ and I can’t reach anything over the side of a F250. Not to mention 4” lift kits and 33 or35 tires. Around here they all seem to be coming from the factory lifted. I had a friend with a Honda with sails. It was no big deal.

    I’m not sure where this $80000 Model X would fit. I just priced a Y performance with some options and it was $86000. That’s a lot more than I paid for my Raven S. If there’s a hole, it’s around $100000.

    On the subject of FSD, we need to remember that when real safety improvements come about, governments tend to mandate them on ALL vehicles sold. In the US, remember sealed beam headlights? Or antilock brakes? Or seat belts? Or, or, or….? Can Tesla charge extra for a back up camera beyond their...

    Safety score says forward collision warnings when none ever occurred

    I had a long chat with a Tesla person on the phone today. Apparently this is not an uncommon problem. The FSD team has said that the software assumes the car is on medium and being on early or late might cause this problem. Also, if you have to pull close to the garage wall for the door to...

    I believe Audie is in my age category. I can’t believe he would pass up a men’s room on a stop. Also, us old guys grew up using a milk jug. Youngsters!

    The Martian only shows one implication of poo. Read THE WORLD IS ENDING-AND THATS JUST THE BEGINNING. I’m not going to try to unpack the book- it’s far too complex. Mods this is not off topic.

    Teslas in Hawaii !!

    I used to live on the Big Island. HELCO had CHAdeMO chargers at 3 locations. They may have changed to CCS I don’t know now. I used my adapter often. Never since moving to the mainland.

    Safety score says forward collision warnings when none ever occurred

    I opted in and drove 2 miles to the grocery and back. At no time was there a car in front of me, empty street. I got dinged for AEB triggering. How can it trigger on empty air? Put a ticket in to Tesla service, and I’ll see what they say.

    Is it time to give up on trying to get FSD beta?

    Well, at least you guys get a good score. I opted in today, drove 2 miles to the grocery and two miles back. At no time was there ever a car in front of me while driving, and I get a 49 for AEB. I’ve tried before and always get nonsense scores that don’t resemble my driving at all.

    He was part of a discussion that was off topic, as I was. I don’t remember that he started it I think he just replied. There was a strong mod blast about going off into the weeds. I suspect a man in his position isn’t used to being talked to in that tone. Perhaps we all could take a break from...

    I agree. When I have bought cars on a rational basis, I haven’t kept them long. The longest I’ve kept a car is 21 years. It was a Fiat 124 spyder. There is nothing rational about buying that car! Also bought a Tesla while living on a island two days by barge from service. Is that rational...

    All my grandchildren were taught to hold the wheel at 8 and4 in the state of Virginia. The picture is a little lower than that,but used to be called Italian position.

    I’ve been around recessions since-oh 1958 or so. This thread had been deja vie all over again for a few months. Going back even further, a wise man named Bernard Baruck had two rules for investors: don’t read the Wall Street Journal every day, and an asset is worth what you can sell it for on...

    As I recall, the FBI couldn’t get Martha on a real charge, so they got her on lying to the FBI. Be careful if being interviewed as a misspeak could become lying.

    For you guys thinking Superchargers are such a great advantage in the competition for sales, you might sample the thread on CCS in the Supercharging section.

    In the world I live in, none of the stuff you guys angst about exists. Zero people pay attention to this internet stuff. Teslas, SpaceX and Musk are thought of very positively.
