What would the advantages of buying it be to Panasonic?
Cant they manufacture elsewhere much more cheaply than US
even if they were given the gigafactory?
You think maybe they did the launch in 1/8th scale and forgot to mention the fact?
Cant tell much from the video.
Still taking reservations, but not orders for some reason.
They cant build them in numbers, so I guess there's no hurry updating the website?
No one lasts long working for Elon. SCTY CFO leaving now, and TSLA has a new CFO.
I think Elons house of cards is getting shakier by the minute.
The CFO's saw whats coming and beat feet.
Powdy's wrong again, this is an example of why Tesla is headed down.
Kudos to GM for a very quick product launch.
When it runs out of subsidies and investors who will keep it afloat.
If Denmark and Germany are an indication, Tesla is starting to get
With that math its beginning to look like Tesla can reach 500,000 cars next year!
Stock should be $1900!
Someone needs to reign in Musk. He is trying so hard to push product out the door he is now making compromises. Trying to keep the stock price high enough for continued buying is having a negative effect on quality and reliability.
There is no excuse for the seats not folding flat in what is supposed to be a SUV.
If non-folding seats were necessitated by the albatross doors, then they should have been changed.
Tesla has an uphill battle against increasing competition for EV market share. It doesn't need to be its own
worst enemy in regards to making dumb compromises in its vehicles.
Little news on gigafactory progress, journalists roughed up taking pictures, and Tesla talking to LG Chem?
Is Panasonic looking for the door, or being shown the door?
Rick is in Denmark, doing something for Elon and Tesla. He wouldn't give any specifics, just kept muttering,
" wait til they see next quarters sales numbers ".
General Motors plans to sell Chinese-made cars in the United States beginning early next year, a first for a major automaker, The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday.
GM, the top US automaker, will introduce the Buick Envision, a midsize sport-utility vehicle made in Shandong province, the Journal said, citing unidentified people familiar with the plan.
The Detroit-based company initially intends to import between 30,000 and 40,000 Envisions to the US market, where demand for gasoline-guzzling pickups and SUVs has been strong amid low fuel prices, the newspaper said.
The move would add a third SUV to Buick's lineup in the US, joining the Encore, built in South Korea, and the Enclave, built in Michigan.
"GM officials briefed on the plan say importing the Buick Envision would fill a gap in the brand's product line, and isn't a cost-saving measure," the Journal reported
Sounds a bit desperate, but I'm sure Elon can explain it in a way that will send the stock up $7 ?
Details will be very slow coming out I would imagine. If it was a third party, then Tesla may very well have credited them to Q4. Also, if a third party, what concessions were given in terms of discounts, loans, deferred payments, agreements to warranty for additional periods, etc. Whatever happened, its not a positive for Tesla.
Montana, nice job on the SA article.
Denninger was the founder and CEO of MCSNet in Chicago. Opened as Macro Computer Solutions, Incorporated in 1987, it expanded its service offerings in 1993 to become one of the area's first commercial internet service providers. Among its customers was the Chicago Public Library, which relied on MCSNet for both internet access and web hosting. In 1997 he led a coalition of ISPs in setting up the Enhanced Domain Name System, a short-lived alternative DNS root which allowed registrants to add their own generic top-level domains. Denninger continued to run MCSNet until August 1998, when he sold it to Winstar Communications for an undisclosed amount. For his efforts, the Chicago Sun-Times dubbed him one of "the movers and shakers who brought Chicago into the Internet Age". After the sale of MCSNet, he moved to Florida, where he began to devote more time to stock trading and political activism
