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

    Looks a bit weak and low. Strange how proportions change by ride height. The CT Proto was above center cap height and the wheels were out.

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

    We had a crash here in Germany, where the battery pack of the E-Tron was ejected in the same way- guess the NHTSA has got to do some deep dive. Smells like the fastening mechanism is under dimensioned...

    Model S Plaid Battery Details, sourced from EPA Docs, Vehicle Observations, & Supercharging/Charging data

    We now have a guy in Germany, which could drive way below zero, and was able to draw 119KW from the battery. 2023 EU model. How could this be? Legit?

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    Dunno if this was posted here already. The PayPal mafia seems to be doing an incredible job in this war. Palantir and Starlink seem to be the key factors here: https://www.palantir.com/newsroom/letters/letter-from-the-ceo/software-and-war/...

    The demise of the OEMs

    Toyota is a bad shape, so is BMW and Audi IMHO, just judging on their percentage of new cars here in Germany. Those are mostly fleet slaes and they seem to be in shambles.

    Elon & Twitter

    This whole discussion seems to run deep doesn´t it? ;) Elon has anger management problems too. I see a big, almost schizophrenic diverging personality between the public, soft spoken and highly educated and cultivated appearance and the raging Hulk on everything written. His fuel jajaja, but...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    You are correct however with the periscopic view out of a save island. We have the freaks around the corner. Italy fell, Austria under scrutiny, Orban in effect et al. We have a lot on our table.

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    Goes much deeper. We have massive problems with infiltration in Germany and funding of alternative parties. The AfD is circulated to be backed by the Kremlin, heck maybe one day we´ll hear of parts of the SPD our second biggest party being bribed. In that regard Putin was smart and thought in...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    In this regard Elon was right. There is no outcome, since the "System" Putin will never give up. It´s much bigger than the Nuremberg trials. So what is the consequence?

    22" rims from 2017 MX on 2023 MX Plaid

    We did it in Germany. Works without a hitch. The load rating works, plus the offset on the front axle wheels from the OLD wheels are better. 5mm more out. Better stance.

    I´m still convinced this "friendly faced" LEO guy is onto something. The "no limits"/being a whale attitude smells like a CN state orchestrated steady takeover attempt. One guy cannot move the needle.

    Model X 90kWh battery pack degradation

    The P90D pulls a much higher amperage out of the battery, plus the pedal curve is much steeper, hence nimble spirited driving feeling. The have IMHO a bigger buffer on the top and low end due to that plus a higher consumption. My 12/16 P90D is a "drinker", hence degradation. The balancing...

    Nothingburger like the wokism stance. Creating gaslighting and fatalist projections to blur the lines. A fogbomb. 6 Billion people brought us to where we are ATM. +2°C and glaciers evaporating. Let us not discuss this here, otherwise we play by his textbook. Instead laser focus on his real...

    That´s what I meant earlier with infantile. They lost their way. Full collision with Mini, plus the profits are toast. Is BMW now a small boyracer brand? WTF Guess the whole competition is effed besides Porschäää and Hyundai/KIA. Catch 22 to the fullest. You turn electric, You loose against...

    Yes, and they lack the Mercedes touch. They kill their character all the way back to the design phase, so the design office has to be "refreshed" too ;) while Tesla sharpens the character once they go into mass production. PLAID syndrome.

    Tesla in D is now up almost 6%. Unleashing the beast. More heads are rolling at Mercedes. This time Product strategy and Product planning. Plus the head CTO seems under fire. Guess the EQ line is having a hard time? "The Year of the Ape" the shape of things to come. "

    Yesterday was a first taste. Today is part deux of the Coup de Grace. BYD already reacts, XPeng slashed prices (no luck in the US/Europe), while Mercedes replaces the head of AMG and TEV (premier group within Benz, consiting of Maybach, GWagon and AMG). Next heads will roll soon. Where will...

    We reached the bottom IMHO. A massive iron bottom made of competing metal no matter ICE or BEV brands. The Chinese EV Brands in the US are effed. No compelling products. Sceptizism. BMW is infantile in the Alfa days indifferent from Mini (CES). Benz over the top arrogant, also non compelling...

    Lets get back to BYD for a second- they are issueing cars under the project name "Warship" (seriously!), so the humor is out and gloves on, plus announced the small compact car, the Seagull for ~12k, which resembles a Bolt 2.0. Tuff for GM at last. So they chose to step into the "price war...

    🎯agreed. The price raise was a bit too steep, too unnatural. Brilliant strategic move. However 115k for the MS LR is obscene tho it sports the power of the ex P100DL/Perfromance Raven. Guess they build them for max. 45-50k
