    @ solucky

    The subsidies in Sweden are a lot less than in Norway and Denmark.

    If buying a Tesla is a "symbolyc act" then sales aren't going to grow much outside of Jonestown.

    Tesla is a great car. Buy it because it's a great car. But not because it's a "symbolyc act."

    No need to remember going to a gasoline station. When it blinks red, I pull over, fill, and be on my way in 4 minutes. Then repeat a week or two later. Totally painless in comparison.

    The morning alarm is already a pain. Why do I want another alarm?

    Didn't you just say in another comment on this post that you had 2 Ferraris and one SUV in your garage, side by side with your soon-to-be-upgraded Tesla? (to a 4x4 because you live in such a nice warm weather)

    Now you have Mercedes 550 as well?

    You're quite the car collector there!

    On a different note: Obviously a 2014 car is going to be better than a 2008 car. Also see: A 2014 computer will be better than a 2008 computer.

    I thought about a new diet as well: No drinking, and no eating. How convenient wouldn't that be?

    We can all dream, can't we?

    Hysterical! Two Ferraris and an SUV in the garage, side by side with a new Tesla that's already being traded into to a 4x4 Tesla because "at least" you live "in a warm weather climate."

    Comic relief of the day.

    Thank you. Please bring us more of these. I need to laugh more.

    That's an excellent point. The LEAF is lovely as a short-commuter car, and any other car will be superior for the long trip. I propose a VW diesel where you'll yield around 50 MPG.

    For most people, who don't have some sort of ideological grudge against oil companies, your argument falls flat.

    The regular person just wants to have the best transportation solution at the best price. Some people splurge paying more for a more beautiful car or a car that's got some sort of exciting performance.

  • America's SUV Sales Boom Vs. Tesla's Negative Growth Rate [View article]
    @ John Bingham

    Those 20,000+ aren't orders. They're refundable deposits. Some will convert into orders. Others not.

    If the year comes in at 32,000 cars, that'd be a 39% growth rate, not "50% or more".

    A bunch of nicely profitable old SUVs are doing better than that!

    @ vincentpaver

    Is there an automaker that isn't investing in future models? Can you give examples of a major automaker who isn't introducing at least 10 new models per year these days? Will that change in the next 5 years?

    @ Locked Down Investments

    Obviously there is a big backlog for the X, and a smaller one for the D, but demand for the "good old fashioned S" had stalled. It will be interesting to see what the mix will be in the coming quarters.

    What are your estimates for the total units to be delivered in the next 5 quarters to be reported? (including the quarter that ends this week)

    Very fair assessment of you. I think I am in agreement with all of those points.
