    Unfortunate event that a Mercedes crashed into SF Tesla store, injuring one person. At least no one is blaming unintended acceleration or autonomous driving features this time :rolleyes:

    Car slams into SF Tesla dealership on Van Ness Avenue Monday

    Make a note ' need to add some Bollards', does he not realize that Elon Musk has publicly thanked Mercedes-Benz for the loan helped keep Tesla alive in the early years. Does he not realize that MB made a killing on Tesla shares the profits from which they used to get into the battery business, he should be upset at MB for making the MB B model which used battery and drive train from Tesla.

    It appears to me that the Mercedes Distronic system is dis-functional.

    no...no...no we do not want him to pollute the gene pool, but I guess its good to keep your friends close and your enemies closer ...to plagiarize one that has gone before.

    Why are you posting a story with a thread header that isn't true? stories like these spin on the web as fact.

    Funny story. This week's issue of German car magazine Autobild has an old Tesla on its cover with the text "So greifen wir Tesla an" or How we will attack Tesla. I guess this driver took it a bit to literal.

    I'm sure that long haired blonde had nothing to do with his distraction while driving.
