LOL creepyquestion.There's plenty of evidence (about 2.5B$) that he hasn't figured out how to make money with a high priced car. The chances that he will on a low priced car with no design, factory, testing, supplliers, batteries, execs, but wiith ego, puffery and gal is between 0 and 0 with a std deviation of 0. So taking 0.00 secs for the calcuation we come up with an answer of 0.
LOL astoundami I can't hardly at all in this world believe that anyone actually pays the bill in full in total in cash before the car is even delivered. Really? Where have I been living?? BallCoach help me out please! Tell me if I am deluded or wrong? BallCoach, tell me that you had tons of customers that paid in full before the delivery. Tell me.Tell me. Tell me. Then maybe, just maybe I will be forced to believe this, and forced to understand that X buyers really are from a different world.
LOL whoawhoawhoa3 It's show time then, now, and forever with the Eloon. He has been fantastic on that front so why assume that now is his last performance? I can still go and see Donnie and Marie. And Jason kept coming around. And of course ," I'll be back." This show is better than anything on NetFlicks. Grab some beer and popcorn and you can watch this show in real time, and mix in some reruns of the Three Stooges to bring you back to reality.
LOL iq.. you almost got the lingo right. But you have to included the word exponential in any discussion of ramp up. Although "Model 3 ramp up" does have a certain ring to it. Model 3 ramp up, Model 3 ramp up. That and a tweet plus 32B equals a company valued a 32B!
LOL investorexplains. No wonder I felt like I just had a hyperloop disruptive experience during the conference call. Now back to reality. And I need to rent a car for a couple of days for a 400m excursion beyond the city. What should I rent? An S? An X?
LOL iqnotmeasured Let's say you are right. But you gotta find somebody to buy 2B (that's a Capital B in my measurement system) of junk bonds. And you then gotta find somebody to buy 2B of stock. In both cases those people have gotta trade real cash for paper. I just hope they got the right iq too.
LOL techaintacpa Yeah, GAAP continually updates and changes. It's an ongoing process. But lease accounting has been fundamentally established for - give or take some thirty years. It was developed to give the clearest and fairest picture of that new invention called a lease. Well it's old hat, it's not disruptive and it serves a purpose.
LOL ballcoach-2.13 As far as I can tell there are only 2.13 of us left who really care anything about GAAP numbers. I'm being generous too. The extra .13 is maybe somewhere on Wall Street. But that 's a joke too.
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.
