    I think it would be cool for Tesla nation to have a representative on the next earnings call. And I know Galileo would ask a better question than some of the other callers. Just in the last 24 hours, over 70 shareholders have emailed Tesla’s investor relations department in support. Collectively, we own over 13,000 shares, representing over $3.8 million in value. I bet some shareholders here could help add significantly to that pile.

    Good luck.

    Sent off an email for him. Weather you think he's more optimistic than many on this forum, he does his research and isn't interested in asking the Fluff or FUD questions that often wastes time on the ER calls.

    Where is the crowdsourcing of the question happening?

    He's asking that you email him: [email protected]

    Or submit additional questions on his Youtube channel:


    He's reading them all and building a list of the most popular questions.

    Agree. They kept him on longer asking questions than anyone I ever remember in a CC.

    I am quite impressed. That addded a lot of color to the call. I also think Elon was just waiting for the opportunity to say, I’m sick of these boring questions, take me to YouTube. Hahaha

    Wow. That went better than I could have possibly expected. A few things we learned from Galileo's questions:

    –Tesla is still open to partnering with other companies to share access to Superchargers

    –Supercharger v3 won't be 350 kW because Tesla sees Supercharging as already fast enough, and higher wattage means more battery degradation

    –There's definitely no room to build the Model Y at the Fremont factory. Production will begin in 2020

    –Elon said the Semi will have more than 500 miles of range

    –Elon and JB explained the rational behind providing steady electricity prices for Semis

    –Elon reiterated he thinks Tesla's full self-driving technology will be ready by the end of 2019

    – Elon described his general philosophy about classical economic moats vs. innovation as Tesla's competitive advantage

    I loved this change in direction Elon took with the call... it got WAY more interesting from this point on... much more pertinent!

    Anybody ever think that “more straubel” sounds like “more cowbell”...... which is what I think every time I hear JB speak.. I wish I heard more from him....the quiet mastermind...

    Extremely interesting exchange and change of perspective.

    Thank you to all who made it happen, the collective effort paid off handsomely.

    Agree. I do hope that Elon will share the mic a bit more in the future. I believe JB, Deep, and others provide sharper, more focused answers that complement Elon's style.

    My favorite part of the call was when Elon made fun of the Nikola lawsuit. He doesn't sound worried in the least.
