    Tried to order the adapter, doubting I'd ever need it but it's cheap insurance, and my late 2016 S needs a "retrofit" and was informed I should check back in early '23.

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

    So glad today's over. Fidelity Active Trader Pro thinks my TSLA is "down" a few million $$ today. I guess it was too difficult for them to split adjust yesterday's closing price of $891.29. Stupid Fidelity. And no, I don't have a few million shares. One day though...

    Gene's last parting shot, given the 10 seconds he was offered after Gordo crammed in his last load of crap: "Of the 10 auto companies, 9 of them will not exist in the next decade." (As best as I can recall after a LOL at the best rebuttal to Gordo that I ever heard.) Edit: This comment did not...

    Can we please stop with some folks here believing they have some sort of secret pinky swear with Elon about "first in, last out" as it's nonsense. Unless you have some detailed knowledge that Elon sold ALL of his TSLA, just stop.

    So, no to the turntable, but add some mirrors on the wall to go with the smoke and it’s a magic act!

    I remember this from the 1950’s in Philly: Dawn Donuts had a turntable. It was really cool!

    Sure! Having a house built with a 25 foot deep garage to house the CT. Would love to pull straight in, close the garage door, tank turn and pull straight out. Neighbor reactions would be priceless. Width of the garage might be a problem though. I'm sure walls move if pushed hard enough. :)...

    So who did Elon "motivate" to dump their TSLA? Anyone know if the Saudi PIF still holds TSLA?

    As has been mentioned, "they" stopped shy of hitting $898.218 which would have triggered the uptick rule. History warning of more short sales tomorrow. Hopefully not, but that's how "they" roll.

    While I don't understand the actions of those who seem to not have a social filter, and say things which seem so outlandish that just leaves me stunned, I also don't have an understanding of the underlying condition which can cause such behavior in others. In trying to understand it, I found...

    No, i don’t. Remember that this is the investors thread, and BS fire posts are just that, BS. It’s something the detractors here post. Worse, we all know the FSD timeline is delayed. We get it, we all do. We really don’t need constant unhelpful reminders. Please ask yourself why posts such...

    It’s occurred to me that, over quite some time now, it seems as though you search out and post all things negative about Tesla. Why is that? I often question why you’re here. Perhaps I’m reading more into your posts than you intend.

    To me, "they" aren't done being greedy. "They" stopped shy of triggering the uptake rule which sits at $849.51 today. Macro events drive the algo bots and that leaves room to pull the SP down again tomorrow, and weak hands will surly follow the wrong game plan and capitulate. My gut tells me...

    PSA: I thought I was caught up with the thread hours ago, but just did a refresh to reload where I left off, and it appears almost 2 pages of posts went to the bit bucket. I understand why, but if the mods would post their cleanup action as a heads-up, it would be appreciated. That way, if...

    I just had my "recall" for the S frunk latch "serviced." Handed the tech my FOB, less than 30 seconds later he handed it back. Done. Simply checking that the hood actually latched after releasing the first lock was all it took to verify the car was not affected by an improperly aligned...

    As this is the Investor Discussions thread of TMC, I'll add my single post as to why I feel FSD is an important feature for _my_ owning a Tesla, and part of my investment thesis, and purchased FSD 5 years ago, even though my model S still does not have the cameras (yet) to even support the beta...

    Made a mobile service fix for the Model S frunk latch recall at 5 AM today. If the tech spends more than 5 minutes in my driveway on this nothing of a problem, it will be because we were chatting about our favorite company. Could have driven to a service center today to have it checked, but...

    My S was delivered 12/2016 and sadly needs the cameras upgraded before I’ll be eligible for FSD beta. Sucks having to wait, now a few days away from owning the car for 5 years and requesting the beta, but soon. The advances AutoPilot 2 has made in the almost 5 years since being turned on is...

    OT and correction: My lender lied; There is no bridging loan possibility from an IRA (other types of retirement accounts though are possible.) Sorry for the false info. Can't believe the panic selling on TSLA today from the Apple rumor. Might have to use the AAPL $$$$ now to buy the next dip...

    Just unloaded all of my AAPL, cost basis was $28.28. Need an IRA loan for a downpayment to close in 6 months on a house being built (25 foot deep garage for a CT) and was dreading selling TSLA to borrow from the IRA. I'm so happy, I'm going to go out and get my hair cut. In 6 months, when I...

    CNBS reports Bloomberg "rumor" Apple accelerating an autonomous EV by 2025, believed to be from "reliable sources." That's why TSLA starting to tank, AAPL shooting up.

    For someone trying to sell the notion that retail FOMO can move an average of 2100 shares per second is a strong indication that there's an ulterior motive at play. Ignoring the fact that the Hertz announcement signals a validation of Tesla as the leader in the EV space is either a failure to...

    I love the smell of validation in the morning. The valuation smells pretty good, too. Just waiting for it to fully catch on to reality as it's a tad too low right now.
