    Smell of Desperation!

    Breaking news - Last night Bloomberg had a guy on who said he likes to drive the S car; WOW. That's it, that was the news story. Sounds like Eloon is calling in some chips. Pathetic!

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    • This got to be one of the most short shills infested boards! I know the short interest on TSLA is hi. I wonder what kind of living these clowns make? I am thinking they must be part time interns working for the short funds, etc. Got to be better way to make a living than posting this kind of drivel.

      I am long with a modest position. Like any business, this one can go bk, but I do not think so. The company has political backing, the principals have deep pockets and/or access to capital. Elon Musk and Telsa survived a situation when they could not meet payroll and raised capital. Now they are selling cars and got a waiting list of sorts. Now their challenge is to reduce their man-hours per car which they are doing. The procurement has to be tuned up and their BOM will come down just going from 10 cars/week to 80 cars/month.

    • Speaking of pathetic, is there anything more pathetic than a short who got it wrong? Tesla will be a $70 stock by year end.

      Sentiment: Buy

    • Happiness === not owning a Model S

      - Rear trunk slightly misaligned, not a big deal. Tesla says will fix.
      - Inability to connect Verizon Samsung flip phone. Phone sees car, car cannot connect to phone. ATT iPhone 5 can be connected, but ATT signal is bad where I live.
      - AC noise rumble, inconsistent, worse on low speed.
      - Noisy windshield wiper, especially in heavy rain.
      - Windshield spray weak and aim is low.
      - Charge rate from Nema 14-50 always between 20-24 miles/hour on the big screen. Why not 31? Or even 27 (multiply 31 by 0.8)
      - Charge port does not open reliably. Many other people report this problem.
      - Screen can go dark in bright sun.
      - Key fob does not open trunk reliably.
      - "since last charge" does not reset about 1/3 of time. This is true on 4.1, and on 4.2 software.
      - Lose charge even when alseep. Have lost as much as 8 miles of range in 10 hours. This was under 4.1.
      - Odometer froze twice. Fixed with reboots.
      - Rear camera useless in rain, numerous other reports similar experience.

    • I like driving my Model S, too. I've had it 5 weeks now and absolutely love it. It replaced a 2011 Audi S4. That was a great car, but it doesn't even remotely compare.

      You'll have to look long and hard to find someone who has driven a Model S and come away not liking it. The electric drive train has several unique advantages over an internal combustion engine. Smoother, quieter, vibration free, more convenient (I fill up in my garage each night), and this is the most noticeable and surprising thing to me - not having a transmission dramatically improves the driving experience.

      Have you tried driving one? You might find you like it, too.

      Sentiment: Buy

    • Ha Ha. The truth shall set you free. Now we find out that ONE person really does like the S. Where are all the rest?
