You want an ice machine in your Model 3? I can make a custom tissue box for you if you want one. It will fit in the area under the sliding door...Just let me know the height width and depth I need to work with, I don't have a Model 3 yet.


Tissue box... made it for my wife... there is always some truth to me, I think.

3d printed ABS


Max Pain by tomorrow... $275 right?

I’ll start questioning my investment in Tesla if there is no refresh shown. They just need an interior refresh and maybe the S needs new taillights.
Anyone think how funny it is that Investor Day is as close to 4/20 as possible? Would be cool if they show a 420 mile range Model S. Or maybe a take private bid at $420. Hmm


Don't think they will show a refreshed S/X until you can actually go on the website and order them.

I do think it is coming though, with 400 mile range :D

It’s not panicked. I’m numb to these drops at this point. But S/X numbers are concerning. I’ve seen many inventory cars reduced in price by 20-40%. Saw a P100D with 50 miles on it for $86k. That’s ludicrous. The only plausible explanation would be a refresh is coming so they are clearing out inventory and making buyers feel good about their purchase when the refresh comes since they got a good deal

Yeah, Model X and S pricing is brutal right now. The numbers of cars being produced and sold is fairly ugly. Tbh, I don't know where to look for a silver lining. At this point I feel like we need a hail mary of some sort. Be it in the self driving investors day, something surprising and amazing in the refresh, etc. As an investor thats deeply underwater, hoping for some kind of miracle isnt a position I am happy to be in.

If Tesla has something jawdropping to show autonomy day, I can see investors disregard everything about financials, cars sold etc in favor of a new growth story. If they can show that FSD isn’t just a gimmick and can actually soon create revenue (Andrej has to say this, not Elon) stock can double in two months. It can’t be another Model Y type of event where they show a new product for 4 minutes in the dark. That was an embarrassment imo

Refresh announcement would give the stock a temporary bump and won’t affect stock much until we see sales from the new models

I honestly don't care what wall street thinks, or shorts think, or the media thinks. Tesla is outselling everyone else in EVS and pushing the entire worlds automakers to catch up. People who think the S needs a 'refresh'...show me the car that looks and feels cooler? Show me the car with the more impressive touchscreen, or the better real-world usable autopilot, or the supercharger network, or over-the-air updates, or range, or acceleration, for the same price.
Such a car does not exist yet, not even on anybodies drawing board, let alone orderable right now.

I'd like a short-term SP rise so I can get out of my stupid short term (i thought) day-trade positions I've been holding,which distract me from my day job, but my roughly 1,000 actual TSLA shares will still be in my hands in 2025. I don't care how long it takes for wall street to learn to do actual maths.

While it is a pretty low chance IMHO, If Tesla actually has a working FSD system on the 22nd, the stock way more than doubles...

Anybody know who the vendor is for this:

03/28/19 FPL PRESS RELEASE:
FPL announces plan to build the world's largest solar-powered battery and drive accelerated retirement of fossil fuel generation
- Innovative modernization plan will replace a pair of aging natural gas power generating units with clean and renewable energy, saving FPL customers more than $100 million while eliminating more than 1 million tons of carbon dioxide emissions
- The FPL Manatee Energy Storage Center's battery system is projected to have four times the capacity of the world's largest battery system currently in operation
- Charged by an existing, co-located FPL solar power plant, the planned battery storage center will increase the predictability of solar - extending its benefits even when the sun is not shining

this will be 409MWH.

Any intel on the vendor would be helpful.

Fire Away!

As long as it had ludicrous I think I'd buy it.

Idea...

Refresh Models S and X.

Offer trade ups to current "downrev" Model S and X owners, offer a good deal.
Create ridesharing service with MS 3 X for free! Free S 3 X! Use S3X to promote Tesla and develop a new UBER-Lyft income channel.

I take tips.

ARK Invest will host its quarterly webinar today at 4:15 pm EDT led by CEO/CIO Cathie Wood. This is in addition to its monthly webinar presented on Tuesday. The webinar will conclude with a Q&A session during which we can send questions.

Tesla is the largest holding among the ARK ETFs (exchange traded funds). I own shares of its ARKK fund which is 9% TSLA. Tesla is usually discussed during either the primary webinar presentations or in the Q&A portion.
