my concern is why so many of these turdsla cars are junked when the damage to wheel well does not look that serious. I assume Turdsla brings this on themselves as insurance companies will not total a car unless it is necessary, especially due to high cost of these junker lawn ornaments. Turdsla must raise cost of parts to point that none of these lawn ornaments can be fixed economically when only the least amount of damage is done. Keef is definitely onto something
I was more thinking that the crazy people are the ones who buy the turdsla cars and its stock
Unless those national auction junker sites are made up, Keef is definitely onto something. Way too many cars are throwing wheels for no apparent reason .
profit on Model X is a joke. You are kidding aren't you. Building them by hand with EWON sleeping on the line to see if he can get a second one without flaws. And you imply a profit???
Guess they can blame the door suppliers for allowing them to hit
I agree. I have said all along the model x lawn ornament will be canned once and for all soon. I suspect they will have to take all the ones out there now off the road for everyone's protection. How the stock price does not crater to less than $25 per share is a mystery of monumental porportion
that is hilarious. Truly funny. You stop somewhere and tell everyone in the vehicle they have to draw straws to find out who gets to open their door next as the car is expensive but not built ti open more than one door on a side at a time. Just tell that to the little anxious hyperactive rug rats when you pull up to the playground that they cannot get out of the car until they are given permission to do so LOL!!!!!
I assume this long time theor still applies to automobiles. In the day, a Chevy cost GM a certain amount to build and it m ight have sold for $10,000. A Cadillac might have cost $600 more to build than the Chevy but could sell for thousands more than a Chevy (say $15,000). Huge profit for the more expensive car. Don't know current costs to build a Chevy and a Cadillac but suspect the relationship still applies. Thus, if you apply this logic to Tesla, they profit they make per car (gross margin level of course or there would not be a profit at all) to the Model X/ S, then the less expensive model 3 will be a huge failure (economically at least) as there is no way they can cut costs enough to warrant the announced pricing. It would have to start at $50k or more to even come close to breaking even on a gross margin standpoint. Maybe Ballcoach can chime in on this one.
In car language, it is a "frunk" and the car does have one. Maybe it qualifies for Dumbo categorization already.
If this is goosing up sales, I wonder what it would be if sales were terrible?
I have read that when the dumb gull wing doors are open and there is rain, the water pours into the back seats. Should be great for that picnic you suggested. Car and Driver likely would have thought of that except the silly doors are just "dumb" for regular production cars.
No further comment necessary. Just as we have said all along. Thank you Car and Driver magazine.
Analyst firms typically cannot make stock recommendation until a certain time after a new listing. They should have same rules that they cannot bid on a deal within a certain (say 30) days of making a market direction recommendation
I think the jump into traffic or something is the right idea. Get out of the "falcon" wayand let those doors open into path of ongoing cars so they can get rippped off as Keef would say
he is a megalomaniac who is nothing more than a con man Don't know if it is a purposeful scam he perpetrates or if he is mentally deranged
the problem with Turdsla is that if anything goes wrong in their impossibly rosy predictions, the stock should be trading under $25 per share. That is where we want and expect it to go.
people (aka long lemming loons) are blind to the fact that Turdsla is faking it to get more money and cannot meet any of those wild production goals.
why would a parts supplier (without a guaranateed purchase contract called "take or pay") gear up with vast new production capability (spending lots of money) if they have no assurance EWON will start to hit deadlines he sets in light of the fact he has never met any of his vast and outrageous production guidance. If these other companies committed to producing the 500k widgets a year and one of the other suppliers fails to meet demand (or if EWON just screws up as he did on the Model X), those other companies might be seriously harmed. The suppliers should and will either require a take or pay contract or they will make Turdsla prove it can product the cars needed to need the large commitment from the respective suppliers. Just good business and is one more reason the model 3 may never get off the ground.
No, I have had several rounds of puts from time to time. Could not get shares through scottrade to short until the price of turdsla was in the middle $250's not long ago I quickly sold a couple rounds of it to get my short locked in and will have to concentrate less on puts to take my position.
I have been typing that they need $5 billion + and that is if they are a profit generating firm. Not that it will ever generate a profit.
