electric cars have the simplest architecture electric cars have the fewest parts electric cars have zero emissions -- eliminate big city smog and pollution electric car batteries can be 100% recycled electric car batteries will come down in price over time electric cars will increase in range over time electric cars will become cost competitive over time
electric cars are the future.
yes or no?
Any updates on the tunnels?
musk leaving trump's business council was politically correct. he should follow up by refusing further government subsidies and tax breaks. that would be awesome.
What model Tesla do I need to buy to tow my 10,000 pound boat from Dallas to Corpus Christi in 100 degree heat without refueling??
gas cars are not going away anytime soon with oil under $50. a hybrid is the way to go
Just reran my calculations on the amount of TAXPAYER MONEY Musk's feeding at the government trough companies have taken in to date:
$10.5B in federal, state handouts, freebies, subsidies
The question for all of us: how much longer do taxpayers have to subsidize feeding at the government trough business entities (Tesla, rocket companies) that have established, long term patterns of destroying shareholder net (TSLA is hovering around minus $90/share) - especially when their long term business plans and strategies STRONGLY suggest they won't revert to the mean???
@Mark, nobody's fighting or is against clean energy. As a matter of fact, we should ask fElon Mask why there is not one single solar panel on any of his factories. We are not against clean energy, we are against scammers trying to increase their wealth while polluting the planet.
180 total cars produced in two months of "production", now that's what I call progress! Less than one every eight hours. And those lazy "non-hardcore" workers claim they are overworked! "Honey, how was work today?" "Great, myself and 20,000 other Tesla employees built A car"
$265,000 a day in interest. (5.3% junk bond cost) 1 day in TSA needed to sell 40 model 3's yesterday., to cover the interest only for this one issue. $265,000 today too, and tomorrow.
So what happened to the Mode; 3 production? Where are these car? Did Elon lie again?
" features could bump the final price up to $55,000." The affordability of the Model 3 is a pure lie!
I'd give up my left nut to sit in on the meetings that Tesla is surely having, discussing possible reason to give for lack of progress on Model 3 production. My guess is several suppliers are in the cross-hairs, or perhaps a redesign, to make it even better! When WS hears Model 3 will be even better, stock will soar. My favorite will be Elon's quote: "You took me serious? I was only messin' with ya', can't take a joke? "
Another day closer to the Semi-Truck reveal!
This companies whole concept is a sham! If I sold government GASOLINE and through Government subsidy my gas could be sold for .50 cents/gal as opposed to Market Gas at 2.20/gal I would have an egregious advantage over the market! YET TSLA Still...CAN'T TURN A PROFIT???? They sell at 363/sh? This is truly ABSURD!!!
Saw one of those "3" cars going down the road last night. Might have been a Mazda 3, or an Audi RS 3, perhaps a BMW 3-Series? Could have been an older Plymouth TC3..., nah. But is sure as hell was not a production version of the Tesla Model 3. Where are they?
Just a reminder to those continually placing lg. Orders either on the bid or sell side which quickly disappear. This is known as spoofing and is illegal. The 1st case was just upheld and the guy is now serving a 3 yr prison sentence.
Since Yahoo keep deleting my comment, I will try again. Since the last 13Fs were filed, institutional investors dumped a total of 11M Shares NET. Guess who they dumped them to? Oh and the ones who are dumping are also writing big bullish articles about Tesla... Fidelity Capital anyone?
Possible reasons for Model 3 delayed launch....1) Lazy yogurt eating disgruntled (non-unionized) workers, not being "hardcore" enough.2) First car off line ran over CEO in sleeping bag. 3) Robots became self-aware at 03:45GMT August 21st, 2017, Tesla's Judgement Day4) Those wacky suppliers exclaim "July 2017...,you were serious about that ?" 5) Customers wanted heating / cooling registers on dash after all. Opps!6) Can't seem to get that black paint black enough. "Can't we use a different color?"7) Typical Tesla employee can't afford the car they produce after all, lack motivation. 8) Parking lot full of cars needing "rework" preventing assemblers getting to work.9) Excessive Sierra Nevada snow melt floods pass between Sparks and Fremont10) Elon asks CFO to repeat answer to "we're losing how much per car!?" 11) 5-Star safety rating was the total of first five cars. 12) Osborne Effect, reservationist waiting for Model Y, or semi... (who wants a midsize sedan these days?)13) Production Supervisor: "What do you mean it won't fit; didn't we find that our during pilot builds? Oh, right.." 14) Production Specialist: "Hand me that hammer, I'll make it fit"15) Employee reservation holder "Can you believe this #$%$ we're shipping? Think I'll wait for the 2018 version..." 16) "OK, who forgot to add the cruise control to the steering wheel?"17) $9,000,000,000 is just not enough money to produce a single model of a small car these days...
Even with 2 upgrades and with Barron's repeatedly falling all over themselves to post the glories of tesla we saw GM end the day higher than tesla. Are the analysts saying buy as they dump?
Thoughts on Model 3 being a car for the masses; 1.) I think the center dashboard, with only the touchscreen will be seen as a negative to older generations. 2.) Charging - everyone says you can charge at home, what about the large population of people who live in apartment complex's or people who are renting. They better hope their work has charging stations, or be prepared to spend time charging somewhere after work somewhere. 3.) Price - lower range at 35,000 is still high price for most people, and I'm guessing most people who put down 1,000 (refundable) deposit put it down so they could have an option. How many people wanting the 35k option were relying on the tax credit that will most likely be gone by time that car hits the market.
