    If you have already gotten your Model 3, how long did you wait once you place your order? The online estimate says "3-6 Weeks," but of course we know that Tesla's timeframes can be... let's say "hopeful." And of course 3 weeks is already a big difference from 6 weeks. I'm curious how long...

    "Tesla is a SCAM!!" - BMW Dealership

    My Fiance currently drives a 2014 BMW 328i on a 3 year lease. The Van Nuys BMW dealership, where we had it serviced once, has been calling her and mailing her stuff lately to try to get her into a new 2018 330i. She answered today and a woman started offering her all of these incentives to end...

    Any info on the Mira Loma Substation project?

    Addressing Peak Energy Demand with the Tesla Powerpack Back in Mid-September, this project was announced. At the time, Tesla said that it would take 3 months to complete. For the last couple of weeks, I've been looking around, hoping to read something about its completion, but I haven't seen...

    Bolt Delayed...

    http://jalopnik.com/chevy-bolt-ordering-delayed-by-three-months-report-1785668778 The Media Coverage of Tesla is both a blessing and a curse for the company. On the one hand, they don't have to spend money on mindless advertising (they spend money on marketing, but that's very different from...

    Media outlets really think that only certain markets want EVs...

    ...I can't wait for the Model 3 to come out so that the proliferation of EVs in Texas, Alabama and Michigan will prove them wrong. FROM THE ARTICLE LINKED TO BELOW: "The results point out that while some dealerships do go above and beyond to sell plug-in models, many are simply deciding it’s...

    Is the SCTY/TSLA merger a brilliant way to direct sale in MI/TX/UT, etc?

    Something just hit me today. Musk is touting the savings of acquiring new Solar customers as one of the biggest benefits of this merger, but is it possible that both companies might benefit from this? Right now, in Texas, customers who come to a TeslaMotors Gallery can't learn anything about...

    Model 3 Drag Coefficient

    Elon didn't mention the Cd, but it's clear that a LOT is being put into it. Even the wheels - in particular, the wheels on the gray and red ones, looked geared toward reducing drag.

    Will anybody here be asking questions tonight?

    I'm just wondering if there are any members of this forum who will get to speak during the earnings call and ask a question. If so, could you ask about reservation price for the Model 3?

    Is Tesla planning to release two models at once?

    I don't think that Model 3 and Model Y will both be released at the same time. This guy seems to, though: Model 3 surprise: Tesla is preparing to announce 2 vehicles in March | Electrek The clear implications is that Model 3 and Y will both be announced concurrently in March. Nothing would...

    BMW and Nissan on Geography

    Anybody else notice something a little funny about this picture? I don't even remember where I got it anymore, but I think it was on some article about the Bolt. Anyway, the graphic purports to illustrate BMW and Nissan's charging infrastructure plan... but look where the cities are located...
