Tesla Qtrly Revenue Growth (yoy): 760.90% - Yahoo finance key stats
I have searched their site under tesla and I get some odd hits but nothing on tesla fires. Has anybody seen or read anything they can provide a link to? Not doubting the investigation is going on, just would like to see what they say.
Ballastic Nylon is much lighter than aluminum, titanium is about the same weight as aluminum but is nearly as strong as steel. Weight penalty should be very small. There are alot of engineering fixes to this problem. Including the software change that increases ride heigth.
Tesla is not an iPhone - Battery is easy to change - less than 5 minutes - Recall would not cost much.
Swap out the aluminum shielding for titanium or add some ballastic Nylon to battery pack. Drive in wait 5 minutes drive out with new armored battery pack. Over and done.
Short the stock and hire Lawers to attack it - Sad state of affairs
Wrong, more of the same is not that big of a problem, battery cell of same performance, size, and shape is easy.
Why today? Options hangover? - No news, No fires, No Nothing- Bear trap setup?
Takes months not years to setup new battery suppliers - SA is wrong. They have the design, just need to test first production.
Blue Ridge Capital bought 500,000 shares of Tesla Motors Inc (TSLA_) worth $96,685,000, which accounts 1.16% of its portfolio.
That sucked - Stop Loss Orders Just let a bunch of shorts steal your shares - Don't use them.
Fremont fire trucks and an ambulance were on scene at the Tesla Motors plant shortly after noon on Wednesday.
The facility s at 45500 Fremont Boulevard and can be easily seen from Interstate Highway 880. Tesla Motors designs, manufactures and sells electric cars and components.
Wow What an over reaction - Some type of plant accident - nobody killed - not a car fire - Move along
Typical ICE car has mono body / frame ie the floor is thin sheet metal stamped and welded together. There is no frame like you might see in a vintage car or heavy duty truck.
Anything that could tear through 1/4" of aluminum under the battery would have gone through the floor of ICE car like a shark fin through water. It would have severed any body part in its way. Like the old "Snake Head Rails" that used to tear through steam train passenger car floors.
These people have their legs and their lives because they were in a Tesla.
Had they done this bad of a job driving a typical ICE car with a thin floor not a armored battery pack they would be dead or disabled for the rest of their lives.
The fires are not good but get real, everybody is fine.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
