LOL Now, now now, let's not have such limited vision please. When you are going to retire on Mars, save the world, and travel with hyperloops and reusable wockets what's a litte charging network through Mexico and India. You need to appreciate a little more the disruptive thinking of The Eloon.
LOL omenofwhatnonsense The last time I was in the UK, ie last week, there were plenty of black cars, known as taxis or cabs, that were ready, waiting and willing to have someone walk up or flag them down. And the last time I was in the USA, ie last week, there were plenty of yellow cars, known as taxis or cabs, that were ready, waiting and willing to have someone walk up or flag them down. The future is already here, and it comes with a driver too. So rental electric cars are the solution to what problem?
LOL..jmv... You just made me realize that The Eloon has already invented the perfect hyperloop. Only it doesn't transport people. What it does is transfer money - from many pockets to his!
LOL nooilinthegearseither Did you realize that this service has already been available for years? In lots of places it's called a t a x i. It comes with a driver too. You can think of it as caranddriversharing. And if you dare share with the great mass of the unwashed you can even share a much bigger vehicle. It comes with a professional driver too. It's called a b u s. And if you dare share with the hoards you can get on a thing called a t r a m or t u b e or s u b w a y. Lots of them don't even need drivers. Welcome to the 1990's!
LOL. pwdyisright. I don't have built in vacuums in my houses either, and I don't even know where the vacuum is kept or if I even own one. These days it's much cheaper to just hire Muella or Gabriella or Danuta or Anka, And they still work like its the 50's. Get with the program. Vote Bush.
LOL messinthepoint. It's never a question of whether they can afford the loss. That's just a naive off-the-cuff-comment without any thought. It's a question of where they would stand in a BK process. And if I dared own Tesla bonds I would be concerned too, not pleased about the lastest move. The Eloon has essentially confirmed that the deposits are refundable come what may, and he has come close to confirming that the depositors have priority. So much so that there will be class actions between the depositors and the bondholders concerning priority. As for the stockholders, we already know that they are the bagholders. What we will be left with is Apple buying the valuable patents for $1.
"Why use electricity to make hydrogen to make electricity when they can just store the electricity and use it as the fuel? "
Or one might just think - Why use fossil fuels to make electricity to store in a battery when you can just use the fossils fuels as fuel?
LOL grannydoesntneedacar And neither do I - not in NYC or London, so do not even give me one. For the weekend I can always rent a 911 or something depending on how I feel. But no rental X's please! For 100/day the doors should at least work.
LOL hiccups That's a disruptive sort of question! Just use nonGAAP earnings and a PE of infinity. When multiplied by each other that equals at minimum $120 Billion. Time to become a Dull Street Analyshit.
LOL. iq20 When you fall for this stuff it could damage your head and iq even more. In three years I think I will have a beer on a hot summer day, and three months earlier if it's a hot spring. Assuming I'm still standing and haven't fallen down on my head.
LOL messenwithyou But he was responding to old"k"enchan. Silly me, I thought pwdy was actually being inventive for a moment.
Here's what Marchionne said.. "talking to Automotive News Europe on the sidelines of Fiat Chrysler’s annual meeting in Amsterdam on Friday, the chief executive said, if Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk “can show me that the car will be profitable at that price, I will copy the formula, add the Italian design flair and get it to the market within 12 months,"
And in May 2014, Mr. Marchionne publicly asked customers not to buy Fiat Chrysler’s electric 500e because every unit sold contributes a $14,000 loss to the company.
Seems to me he has his head fitted on right.
So, all this means what? 1. In another ten or twelve quarters it will add up to some real money. 2. We are investing for the future. 3. We don't need to issue capital this year. 4. The new CFO has heard of GAAP. 5. It's not a scam. 6. BC = JmV = MS = IG = T67 = Kb77 plus another dozen. 7. I should go long!!
LOL keefkeepsmelaughing "Hoping to get it back soon because I can't wait to drive it again!" 3 days waiting and hoping!! Hoping and waiting. I know that feeling from my dating days but that's something I never ever experienced in all my driving days. I hope he's got some Dusty Springfield on his 8 track in his rec room.
You just gotta believe, enjoy and chuckle.
Pre-orders for the Tesla Model 3 are approaching 400K, Vice President Diarmuid O'Connell said at the AVERE E-mobility Conference in Amsterdam. "It delivers a message to the industry that there's incredible demand for great electric vehicles out there," he declared. O'Connell also said the automaker plans to expand its lineup following the Model 3, emphasizing the Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) pickup truck that's been talked about before by CEO Elon Musk.
LOL emptysteve What an empty comment that the only thing that's as easy to do as printing money is making a 3. I think you are frankly full of... But actually today, printing money is really only bits and bites and bytes and electrons and all that stuff or something like that, right? But you knew that it was that simple didn't you. You better pass along your insights to The Eloon cause he hasn't shown that it's that simple to make money. All he's done so far is show that it's simple to lose money.
And I can't see why any equity investor would want to buy shares so that Tesla can use the proceeds to pay off the notes, and enhance the position of current shareholds as well, and then still end up as insignificant minority owners.
LOL ndibari65. And why leave $65 on the table? When it passes 65 it will still be accelerating. Remember the Road Runner and W-coyote. Once the coyote started down he didn't stop to he hit the dirt. Wasn't it great that the cartoons writers always made him live to chase again the next day. The cartoon writers on this The Eloon show are making up great illusions and have kept this in the air a long time, but when it starts down in serious it will hit the dirt. And no cartoon analyst/banker/reservation taker is going to make it live the day after.
LOL. kbodiesgottoseethehumortoo. Just thinking of those things gives me a morning smile. But the model 3 stories and the 270,000 reservations going on 1,000,000 reservations are going to have me on the floor rolling. And the shocked reactions of the "investors" when he breaks the quarterly loss record. Which I hope the Eloon again explains as investing to save the world. It's like SNL everyday of the week.
