    And P3D nearly beats Taycan at 1/3 of the price.

    Laguna Seca Says Tesla's Model S Record Lap Isn't Official

    “We were not officiating while the Tesla was testing on the track," the track official told CNBC. "Official records only happen during sanctioned events where a sanctioning body is officiating.”

    So technically speaking, Tesla hasn't officially broke the record for four-door production cars.


    Laguna Seca Official: Tesla's Model S Record Lap Isn't Official

    I don't know if these car companies really care about the sanctioning rules and just want the pub or there is a massive ineptitude or ignorance of how things work.

    What's the difference? Tesla has the video evidence. It's not trying to go in the record books.

    Too bad Tesla couldn’t have just included the word “unofficially” when making the statement. Nothing like giving the haters more ammo.

    Linguistic ambiguity. You wrote "3 motors", and I interpreted it as "motors from the Model 3", rather than "a total of three motors". ;)

    Progress and updates are expected, and will always osborne current products, ex laptops, phones, etc. The only thing that didn't suffer from osborne effect is the Osborne computer, and so they fell of the map. (and they were hard to repair)

    Yes, and if you're worried about a plaid S osborning current S then just think about what that plaid S will do to the sales of other fast sedans.

    Any chance of dumbing this down a little for the more EE illiterate?

    Haters are good at finding excuses to hate.
    The tycan Nurburgring time was unofficial too. I didn't see CNBC pointing that out.

    Tesla is treated in a different way. It's right to push the company to do better, but expecting them to be perfect so they will not get attacked... they will never be perfect. Haters will always find excuses.

    Obviously disappointed that we're not up in the mid 250's after that crazy start, but as thing stand (manipulation notwithstanding) we're consolidating yesterday's gains.

    The Taycan was heavily modified as well including an inside cage but still Porsche did say today if Tesla would not use a production care it would be against the "rules"

    The plaid Model S is since today for 3 weeks at the Nürburgring with an experienced driver who knows that track very well. Car is called Model S P100+

    They have improved aerodynamics, special wheels, over roll bar and likely tuned it for better performance.

    My guess: they came to win.

    Will take some effort. OK it's up from $225 and $227.50, but they need to push it down around 3% before close tomorrow

    Let me get this straight:

    There is only one person buying large quantities of TSLA stock recently and they have now given up for the rest of the day. There will be no end-of-day runup today. We are now stuck in the $240's until delivery numbers come out in 3 weeks and will probably end up 2 to 3% down for the day.

    You are really amazing. I assume that, by now, you have a net worth measured at least in 8 digits and have placed big bets against TSLA so you can skim off that 1 or 2% profit in a little less than three hours time. :rolleyes:

    It is curious that short interest reports for individual stocks were not reported after the close yesterday, as scheduled. The NASDAQ did report the TOTAL of all shares shorted but not a company breakdown. Never seen that before.

    I've always taken it as a metaphorical "mystery buyer." A short hand for the big institutional investors.
