    At least it's a positive point for collective discussion here rather than doom and gloom tesla news from expert investors and automotive pundits which is what we get outside of the forum.

    So just out of curiosity, what do I have to gain from coming up with click bait titles? On YouTube I could gain from more views, or if I posted a link to my website or blog... But I truly could care less how many "clicks" I get on these forums. Just a year and a half ago this used to be a place you could come for casual conversation on all things Tesla... It seems that is changing...

    Yeah, some of us old-timers were taught and still practice hand-over-hand steering when making turns, so a completely round steering wheel is a must. ;)

    I know, with full autonomy, a steering wheel becomes irrelevant, but we're not there yet! :)

    Only way a U shape wheel makes sense is if the steering ratio was something crazy and a 90 degree turn could be done with with just a cross arm movement. I think the mass market driver this car is going to be targeted to is not going to want that. I'd take a flat bottom maybe, but U.... No thanks! Just project the HUD higher please.
