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

    I was virtually cycling today (ROUVY.COM) and for the first time, in the oncoming traffic spotted a Model S. I suppose since I was riding the Pacific Coast Highway, it shouldn't have been that unusual...

    Tesla density For some time, while on my daily cycling ride I have been counting the number of Tesla products out on our area's city streets, and the increasing numbers have been quite gratifying. But lately I noticed an out of proportion increase, and in particular mostly with lots of white...

    As I understand it, the Board can vote for a split (even greater than available shares) pending shareholder approval.

    Wiki Largest gaps between Superchargers on US Interstates

    With the construction of a Sheetz at I-90 and OH-306, I'd hoped to be the first to announce a splitter between Erie PA and Sheffield OH. But a quick look at the site plan did not show any chargers. Perhaps after the initial buildup? We'll see... But conversations with the City Engineer did...

    Could you tell me how to much power is necessary to supply Tesla's eight pack of superchargers?

    Safety Score "aggressive turning" factors not logical or safe

    My situation is a bit different. I'm getting dinged for aggressive turning at less than five mph. I have and older home with a detached garage with very limited access. The hard turns to safely get my car into the garage (and to reach my charging cable) are apparently hitting my score. Just...

    Supercharger - Twinsburg, OH

    Nope. There was a point when folks were more collegial, and Tesla owners wanted to share their experiences. Easy way to start conversation was to talk about where one was coming from, and where they might be headed. The license plate was a clue...

    Supercharger - Twinsburg, OH

    Quite true. When I arrive at a supercharger, I'm generally interested in where the other folks have come from, and look at license plates to figure out origins. Most often the majority are simply locals, especially if the SpC isn't immediately adjacent to an interstate highway.

    Add the state of Ohio: New levy added to annual license plate renewal. Added $100 for BEV and $200 for EV. Cost me an additional $400 this year to not buy gasoline.

    The SpC in Roscoe is in the parking lot of the Roscoe Diner. Plenty of room by the parking lot to walk a puppy. Save enough time to check out their pies!

    What started you investing in Tesla (@Jackl1956 thread)

    My first real job after college was with Fidelity (pre Peter Lynch; although I adhere to the concept of buy what you know or what you like) where I learned about business. And computers. I was doing back office work and interfacing with an IBM 370 system. Meant thinking logically and...

    My understanding is that those funds will have to acquire stock to match the percentage equal to the percentage of TSLA in the S&P. No additional shares issued, so no funds flowing in to Tesla. But the buying pressure on th SP will be most interesting.

    Yes, the US rail system is similar to a bunch of squabbling 10 year old boys. Their quarrel with Tesla about the rail spur is systematic. The lack of a cohesive cross country system is just plain pathetic.

    New S / insurance

    Took delivery of a new Model S this week to replace my 2014 version. After getting back home, I notified my insurance company, and the financial consequence is refund of $66 for the remaining three months which I had prepaid. Brand new car, and my insurance costs go down? Can anyone explain that?

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

    It wasn't touchless, but the delivery of my new S was expeditious and e-a-s-y. Quite happy with the exchange. Lots of improvements in five years. Still have some extra cash for TSLA stock.
