    Elon Musk and his crash course of Tesla

    ...and yet the fundamentals of the company has never been stronger. It's long term success has never looked brighter. Elon is not allowed an opinion? Elon is not allowed to pursue his goals and desires? Elon is not allowed to express his beliefs whether personal or political? Sounds pretty...

    Well...Georgia is looking pretty good right now. I've got them a lock for the natiobal championship. Thoughts? /s Dan

    I named my Model 3 Patience because that is what she taught me after a nearly 3 year wait. It's Tesla. It's a brand new product. It will be well worth it in the end. Dan

    Who has ordered?

    In all honesty, your 3 year estimate might be fairly accurate. Dan

    Tesla is Peaking in Q3 '22

    Model S and X are incosiquential to Tesla sales and revenue numbers at this point in my opinion. Yes, they are probably the highest margin vehicles in the Tesla lineup be their numbers are so small as to be almost irrelevant to Tesla's success. Berlin and Austin are still in the very early...

    Reading some of these comments, sometimes I think I am the only one that sees FSD as more than just a fun toy to show off to your friends and impress your neighbors. This thing is life changing. It will open up mobility to huge portions of the population that have had their independence taken...

    Have I locked in a price

    Funny how this thread is so full of people who "know" that things will be one way or another. Bottom line nobody "knows" anything at this point, one way or the other. We are all just going to have to wait and see. Dan

    How many will look into the F-150 Lightning?

    Tesla will sell every Cybertruck they can make, just like they sold every car they have ever made. Demand has never been, is not now, and will not be for the foreseeable future any sort of problem. Period. Dan

    ...or, they could be innovating at such a rate as to justify the upgrades, thus furthering the distance between themselves and their already nonexistent competition. But hey, what do I know. 😉 Dan

    Tesla wall charger breaker caught fire

    Do you know the setup they used to connect your charger? Mine is on a 60 amp INDEPENDENT circuit. I think the independent part might be important. Perhaps the charger does not play well with other things wired to the same circuit? Dan

    Curious to get everyone's opinions as to whether the P&D Q2 numbers will have a positive or negative impact on the short term stock price. Will they be taken in context of Shanghai shutdown or at face value? Knowing how fickle the market is I can see it going either way. Dan

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

    While Elon's political views and sympathies probably don't belong on this thread, I do think it is important to state that while Elon's particular views have remained fairly consistent over time (in my view), both Republican and Democratic impressions of his views have swung with whatever the...

    Nothing is changing. Elon is the same as he has always been. If society's definition of left and rught has shifted beneath him that is not his responsibility. Dan

    Uhhh...nope. Gotta disagree here. A happy and challenged Elon is best for TSLA shareholders, and a busy Elon is a happy Elon. Dan

    Or perhaps he wants to do positive things in situations he feels are injust or negative towards the common human good and doesn't care who he pisses off, what his financial burden may be, nor what the short term ramifications may be. It's his money, and neither you nor I nor anyone else has a...

    So, with all the various discussions on here lately what is the general consensus regarding the stock plunge? Is this purely macro driven or is there something negative specific to Tesla I missed? Dan

    Get 'em while they're hot! Picked up 4 more shares at $905. Should have waited a bit longer but I'm good with that sale price. These prices are crazy. Like taking candy from a baby. Just buy and hold. Simple! Dan

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

    The market is supposed to be forward looking, right? Or did I miss something? Two new factories now open. Cost set to greatly decrease with structural pack, 4680s, manufacturing on 3 continents, less shipping costs, the list goes on and on. Yeah, that forward thinking justifies a 3% drop in...

    I have held TSLA for many years and I am well aware of how the market works but it is still amazing to me that the movers manage to push the stock down right before an event that is sure to provide evidence of the company's growth, innovation and resilience. It's almost as if they know what's...

    Because it is getting increasingly difficult to find people willing to do that job...and forget $10/hour. You would have to pay at least $15, plus incentives, insurance, benefits, etc. Dan

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

    Honestly, it is a bit unnerving initially. After a few days you learn where potential problems might be for the system. It is a learning process, but knowing that you are a very small part of making the system better is very gratifying. This is completely new territory and progess, or lack...

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

    Just an FYI...I drive FSD Beta every day. In my opinion, people spend an inordinate amount if time focusing on what it can't do and precious little on what it can do. No, it is not ready for wide spread release nor Level 5 status. That said, it is correct and safe 99% of the time. In fact, it...

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

    I remember the days a few years back when all the market cared about was fundamentals. 'Tesla can't make a profit." "Tesla is a cash burning machine." Funny how now they could care less that Tesla has grown into a cash making machine. Their fundamentals are damn near flawless and the stuff...

    FSD beta coming to 98?

    Exactly my experience. Downloaded Beta last night after reaching a 99 score yesterday morning. Dan

    FSD beta coming to 98?

    For what it's worth, I had 97 initially. Then dropped to 96 after a 1500 mile trip from Atlanta to Maryland and back. Worked it back to 98 for several weeks. Was hoping to get put in this week. Then I read about Elon saying 98's hopefully in 10 days or so...Boo! Then today, I went up to a...

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

    Completely disagree with your assessment of how the rollout was handled. I think it is amazing that they were able to identify the issues and respond as quickly as they have. People have to stop thinking of this as a finished product. It is BETA!!! That means it is going to have issues. If you...

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

    Yes, but it is a very good sign, in my opinion, that they can recognize the problems, come up with solutions, and get it back out so quickly. Sets them apart from everyone else. Dan

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

    I am getting reports from folks here in Atlanta that this release appears to be very buggy...dangerously so in some cases. Hopefully they will work through all this quickly and get on to greater levels of performance. I tell you one thing, those folks that are dealing with these releases and...

    Android Update?

    I think the million dollar question becomes "How long will it take for 98 or 97 scores to get Beta?". That is where I will no doubt end up. Dan
  45. Dan Detweiler

    Android Update?

    Since getting app and being able to see my score 2 days ago, I was being dinged for following too close. All other areas were ok. I have found a gap of about 3 seconds appears to be the sweet spot. I am literally counting from landmarks "thousand one, thousand two, thousand three..." No dings...
  46. Dan Detweiler

    Android Update?

    Yup, me too. Sitting on 97. Looks like I'll be waiting a while for Beta. Dan
