1.) Elon Musk in Berlin

2.) Announcing the Gigafactory 4 in Germany

3.) The open overtures between Elon Musk on Twitter and Herbert Diess (Volkswagen CEO) lately and now on screen.

Watch (@43:28 Gigafactory announcement - @45:00 talking to H.Diess):


4.) Winnning the "Goldenes Lenkrad" - > Winning a price from the biggest "news" provider in Germany, with heavy advertising from the industry
and then in this category! Chosen over Bmw 3 series and Audi A4. That is huge!

Winner in the middle and upper class: Tesla Model 3

5.) Maybe there is more in the works.

This needs some days to digest, but, man...

Saw Elon 10 meters from us. Politely asked the security if we could take a picture, they said no. We left him alone. On the one hand super awesome to see him up close, on the other hand a bit disappointing to be so close and then not get a picture. Oh well, next time.

These are the only really crappy pictures I took when he left.

Thanks for the streaming updates folks in Germany!

Super excited for an actual design hub. I like the Model S and 3 don't get me wrong, but this whole thing could have gone even better if Fisker had just done his f&*%ing job in the first place. I'd be nice to hear Elon quietly acknowledge part of the location decision was because Porsche's look amazing.

Once without realizing it, I sat down next to a TV actor at a martini bar on a cruise ship. When my wife pointed out who it was, I suggested we leave him alone and allow him to continue talking to his friend. When he got up to leave, he shook my hand and said how much he appreciated us respecting his privacy.

Market makers gonna get burnt by another $10-15 this week I would imagine? It's been a revelation following this thread and watching SP get pummeled around(mostly down) to meet max pain targets. Is there anything they can do to avoid this repeated beating or does volatility just naturally hurt the business?

Having lived in Germany. Germans are very patriotic to their own brands. Probably many are secretly wishing they could buy a Model 3 but didn't want to suffer the comments or hairy-eyeballs from others. The Model 3 getting the highest points of all the cars at the awards will be noticed by every German. The fact that GF4 is to be located in Germany now allows Germans an excuse to go ahead, buy a Tesla, and even save face, wait better yet, actually look patriotic as there will be thousands of Germans employed by Tesla.

Market makers are in on this. They want to squeeze the bears as much as possible. Upwards is the path of least resistance

Tesla plans to build next factory in Berlin, Musk says

BERLIN -- Elon Musk told an award ceremony crowd that Tesla Inc. plans to build its next factory near the German capital of Berlin, sending a stark message to some of the world’s most prestigious automakers that he’s headed for their home turf.

The electric-car maker also will establish an engineering and design center in Berlin near the new airport, Tesla’s chief executive officer said late Tuesday. He made the announcement while accepting an award for the company’s Model 3 sedan.

Tesla will build the Model 3 and Model Y at the plant starting in 2021, the Financial Times said.

Musk, 48, is laying the groundwork for his next plant just as Tesla is preparing to start sales of cars built on the outskirts of Shanghai. Building a European factory will up the stakes for established automakers already facing a serious threat from the electric upstart. Regulators are increasingly mandating that companies build battery-powered vehicles despite manufacturers struggling to produce them profitably.

I'm glad to hear he's got security. That's a positive learning from your stalking.
