Schwarzenegger Wants to Terminate His Tesla Roadster
Yeah but I thought he bought it for his wife ....
Valleywag = Tabloid.
All the stuff you didn't really need to know sensationalized to attract more gawkers.
Tesla Motors - Press Releases
Schwarzenegger Continues To Promote Gas-Guzzling Dodge // Archives // ecorazzi.com :: the latest in green gossip
I wasn't going to post this because it is just more Gawker BS. Notice at least one other site picked it up.
As Kevin said, it was for his wife.
Does Arnie need the money? Does he want the embarrassment given his high profile courting of the company?
I'd like to know who in Detroit pays gawker and their spinoffs to write this stuff, particularly given the timing...
Yes, agreed, the timing was very ripe. (in a bad way)
Should we close this thread? ("nothing to see here, move along...")
You can outright delete the whole thread, for all I care. I didn't, but should have, realized how much of a troll article it was.
The inevitable follow up. Honestly, these people are just...sad.
Great Moments In Pr: Tesla Flack Bitches About 'Silicon Valley Gossip Blog'
I'll reopen this thread since closing it may have been a bit heavy handed.
Governor to talk green to Detroit engineers - SFGate.com
Still doesn't explain the fact that the car was supposed to be for his wife.
Maybe she's a soccer mom and needs more space, but they want to run fewer cars.
Yeah, doesn't exactly make sense to me. But here's a reputable source (SF Chronicle) that says he returned it, for whatever reason. Wonder "returned it" means. Did he get a refund? Anyhow maybe Tesla can resell it at a premium. "Formerly owned by the Governator."
I find it hard to call Maria Schriver a "soccer mom", however many children she might have (4), or whatever her schedule.
Is it possible that being Governator puts a crimp in their finances?
Is it possible that neither of them gets to drive it? It's hard to fit an entourage into a Roadster. However some on this forum hate them, a Hummer has more room. Sometimes a giant SUV does make sense.
With him it's more about width than height. Even for regular folk it's a shoulder rubbing experience in the Roadster.
If the story is true I wish he just would have kept it for a few years and sold a coupla' Hummers.
He's no 6'1" by the way.
Maybe he bought it for her as a present and she didn't like it. Having nothing to do with fit or practicality or anything - maybe she just doesn't like sports cars.
I had this argument with the EVcast guys back when this exciting story "broke." Bo made the comment that Arnold was at least 6-4. It is VERY important to Arnie to be percieved as larger than life. There are websites dedicated to "actual" heights of celebs, and even they don't agree. I just know for a fact that he stands on a hiddle platform behind podiums when he speaks, and appears to wear lifts in his shoes. I'm about 5-11" and I've met Arnie in person a few times. He is no taller than I am. Bigger, hell yes. Taller, no.
