    Don't link this crap. We don't need anymore clicks for this nonsense.

    Yes, literally!

    As others have pointed out above, it's clickbait, so for anyone curious about the content, just read the transcript above rather than going to their site.

    Sight is clearly against/trying to sabotage Tesla. You can have a negative view but still be honest, this site doesn't even bother. Don't waste you time if you haven't already.

    Funny thing is, the online report he's siting, is his.

    Because it's literally the only place online that says this.

    "...to retail right under the $40,000 following rebates"..

    Um, I am not mathematician but I am pretty sure 35,000 is not right under. Plus I believe the English is less than average.

    Yeah, when I posted it I was in shock! Now I wish I could change my original message like JonnyG did so folks wouldn't accidentally feed the beast!

    Do you work for Toyota or Ford or GM?

    You've only posted something 55 times in the past 15 months.......and you start this thread?

    I don't know if that is humor or a genuine accusation?

    If you want to avoid having additional readers clicking on that link, just click the REPORT button on the first post and ask a moderator to remove the link to that article and replace it with a reference to post #4 which contains a transcript of that article.
