    Stirring the Pot on the Model X Reveal

    I agree this is VERY exciting... first solid news out of the factory, I think

    Jim Cramer from Mad Money says we are a cult

    Recently a gaggle of CNBC reporters were discussing TSLA (I think it was on the 10% rebound day after the 14% fall), and I heard Bob Paisani clearly say words to the effect of "I think Tesla has turned out to be a viable company." Sounded good.

    Disappointed in the media situation so far (No CD player in Model S)

    Sorry in advance for the massive post. I can't believe the level of disrespect that's being shown to the Original Poster of this thread. People are allowed to start a thread on anything they want… your time is not wasted if you accidentally click on a thread title, it is your choice to do so...

    Short-Term TSLA Price Movements - 2013

    Those are both great links. You can see in every shot of the Bloomberg video that the Tesla factory is HOPPING!!! (and this video wasn't put together by Tesla!) No-one can deny their products are popular. The greencarreports.com article though... a lot further off the mark. They are...

    Short-Term TSLA Price Movements - 2013

    Monday morning opening prediction! I think there will be a negative bias from the amazing climb on Friday; I also think that the excellent news out of TESLIVE will act as a positive force (commitment to improving the car via updates, restating production strength, etc. continuing the slow...

    Devils advocating...from someone who shorted TSLA

    If I recall correctly, Tesla strongly recommends that you do not fully discharge the battery and then charge it fully up. They recommend you top it up in small amounts regularly. Passive battery management, I guess.

    Short-Term TSLA Price Movements - 2013

    Seems like there was an enormous trade (1.1 million shares) just into extended trading hours - http://www.nasdaq.com/symbol/tsla/time-sales?time=0 (i.e. someone sold that many... and someone else bought that many)

    Short-Term TSLA Price Movements - 2013

    I think today's news is the beginning of the Tesla Conveyor Belt of news tidbits coming out every few days prior to the earnings release.

    All-Electric Vehicle Rally - guess which car won...

    http://www.engadget.com/2013/07/10/all-electric-vehicle-rally/ There they were, a caravan of nine electric car enthusiasts with a lot of free time on their hands, "tearing" down North America's west coast in a bunch of environmentally conscious vehicles. That was just last week in what...

    farting noise in "Studio Sound" package - NORMAL!

    @Todd... Hmmmm.... worrisome! I'm going to the local showroom on Sunday and scheduling a test drive, so I will take some test files on a memory stick.

    farting noise in "Studio Sound" package - NORMAL!

    I'm a sound engineer and I work IN a Sound Studio all day. (Haven't got a Tesla yet but it's in my plans) My fronts are Miller & Kreisel MPS-2510P mains and the sub is an MPS-5310. (look them up) I have metering on the source signals, and the room is appropriately damped for listening. I...

    Asking Elon Questions

    (Can't believe no-one has mentioned this first one) *** When will the Model S be offered with All-Wheel Drive ? (presumably the two-motor version from the Model X) *** Has Tesla considered expanding the range of available paint colours ? *** What is Tesla's claimed 0-60 time for the Performance...

    Short-Term TSLA Price Movements - 2013

    Reading DaveT's post made me think about my sell orders... let me ask if this is a good strategy. I have ten TSLA lots and I have "stop loss" orders on all of them... currently set to between $84 and $93. Most of these lots were purchased at prices well below this. So unless there is a...

    Short-Term TSLA Price Movements - 2013

    We have other things to think about now, like how far above $120 it's going to go, now that it's there:)

    19" vs 21" Wheels Pros and Cons

    That plays into the comment that the 21's are more easily scratched on the curb - and also, the comment that the cornering/handling is better w/ 21's since the car's track is wider. But... if the tires are 245's on both wheel sizes... how is the car narrower with 19" wheels? Does the 21" set...

    19" vs 21" Wheels Pros and Cons

    Can't believe I didn't know the tires are the same width on both sizes. Proves I'm not doing my homework :| I don't think the 19's will be significantly different on snow, then, since narrow tires get the advantage (from what I have seen & read over the years) I guess these parts should be...

    19" vs 21" Wheels Pros and Cons

    Now that the 21" wheels+tires are $4500, I am rethinking about the two ways to go. Has anyone tried to tally up the entire list of positives and negatives on the wheel sizes? Something like this (which for the sake of building the list, contains some guesswork on my part): Acceleration is...

    Is it too arrogant to put my Tesla into the 4th parade? Need honesty.

    Too bad you're not going to show it at the parade. The Model S is about as independent as it gets!!! Yes, it has Mercedes signal stalks on the steering column. But... the rest of the car is all-American. The Roadster is a Lotus (British car).

    Accidents caused by silent operation?

    OK. Glad to hear it's not an issue. It sounds like it may continue as an urban legend, like screen-burn on plasma TVs or something. I'm gonna consider the thread closed:)

    Accidents caused by silent operation?

    Has anyone had any accidents or seen a higher risk of an accident, due to the silent nature of the car? This would likely be in place with lots of pedestrians and where visibility is bad. I can imagine people not getting out of the way when you are moving off, because they don't hear any kind...

    Swapping is Coming [Discuss how it will be accomplished]

    As I said in my previous massive post, Supercharging will be FREE... and battery swaapping will cost you money. That will be THE simple difference that regular people will be able to understand. Imagine a world with Tesla cars that are priced all the way down into the $30,000+ price range, or...

    June 20th Speculation

    brainstorms: that is a good idea... the best companies schedule their big marking around each other. aaron0k: WOOT! I have dreamed about all-wheel-drive for the Model S and would love it to become an option - especially since the Model X shares the same floorpan/chassis and has it as an...

    June 20th Speculation

    Thank you aznt1217 :) OK, my guesses for June 20th are: 1) battery swapping OR 2) Model S deliveries happening in Europe OR 3) Model X Beta reveal BTW there are people speculating that there will be some sort of additional battery in the front trunk to extend range. I seriously do not think...

    Swapping is Coming [Discuss how it will be accomplished]

    rcc: You seem to forget that Elon Musk talked about swapping out the battery in 2009 when he was revealing the car. Why would he open his mouth about that if it was not the intent? Why do you think the battery is along the bottom of the car in the manner it is? (apart from great handling it...

    June 20th Speculation

    If June 20th is the fifth announcement, can someone please summarize what the first four are/were? Thanks -V

    Swapping is Coming [Discuss how it will be accomplished]

    Royal TS(LA) - I had thought of that but left it out of my proposal to avoid complexity. But no doubt, things become more elaborate over time, look how getting a good seat on an airplane has become! You are probably right in fact. If all cars have a 3G connection, they ought to be able to...

    Swapping is Coming [Discuss how it will be accomplished]

    dsm363 - exactly. Another stock offering or whatever. Seeing hundreds of those things being constructed all over the country would ram home the fact that electric cars aren't "experimental" any more! I believe Tesla will do battery swapping better than Better Place. Better Place did have...

    Swapping is Coming [Discuss how it will be accomplished]

    MASSIVE POST ALERT!!! Oddly, I had thought up the idea of battery-swapping a few weeks ago when I was describing the Tesla Model S to a relative of mine who wasn’t at all familiar with the brand, based on the basic placement of the battery. (I did not know they had already mentioned it in...

    Breaking News: Pro-Tesla Motors bill dies in Texas House (Austin Business Journal)

    If Rick Perry and Elon Musk ever sit down at a table together, this would be a great video to show before the conversation re: selling Tesla cars. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ARDfHfMxy8Q (I live in Austin, BTW)

    mass of various option components...

    Hi folks, my first post! I am researching the various options as I choose how my Model S will look. I want the car to weight as little as possible. I've read a lot of forum posts already, and don't see much talk about the mass of the various options. There's a lot of discussion on the merits...
