  • Tesla now +3.2% AH. Gigafactory aims to supply 500K vehicles. [View news story]
    @Yo, yah, you'd think that the possibility of 6,500 employees and what another 2-3,000 ancillary employees (supporting services), that Texan lawmakers would completely ignore the dealership lobbyists and open up Texas to Tesla showrooms.

    I just can't imagine Texas not interested in 8-10,000 new jobs?

    experience in manufacturing? Tesla had no experience in manufacturing a full production car either - Top CR vehicle 2013-2014

    shall we talk about rockets too? Part of Musk's genius is gathering the right people at the right time in the right places.

    The form factor (5-seater based upon the A60 of the Q8 eTron suggests it will be a PHEV, the 2012 concept eTron had a 70kwh electric drivetrain with a gas engine.

  • A Tesla Bull Suggests Hedging Long Positions Going Into Earnings [View article]
    There's another SA article that points to a couple of news reports that it was wiring. The pictures seem to support that view as the fire department clearly chopped into the sheetrock of the wall in front of the Model S. There was some discussion about the owner pulling his/her Lexus out of the garage, so stands to reason that the fire was located in the wall directly in front of the Model S, as opposed to in front of the Lexus.

  • Will Tesla Design New Vehicles In Time To Prevent More Devastating Battery Fires? [View article]
    Right on JRP3, and one can clearly see on the ground that the fire department put a pretty big hole in the wall, it appears that's what they are staring at as well.

  • New Models From Honda And Audi Will Consign Tesla And Its Superchargers To A Smaller Niche [View article]
    @true.north, so true! I just returned from a winter trip, 300 mile round trip San Jose to just above Cold Springs, in a rented gas guzzling full-size van no less. I passed at least 100 gas stations, but doing my pre-trip planning we only used one (1) gas station and that was in the foothills across from a Starbucks. Used 1/2 tank up 1/4 tank coming back.

    My point is too affirm true.north, "thousands of chargers, that makes no sense!", in fact we don't need 10,000 gas stations either.

  • Another 'Typical' Tesla PR Stunt [View article]
    As a marketing event, I'm rather glad that Tesla chose the dead of winter to do the trip. Clearly weather is not an issue!

    Interesting to see if there is any spike in reservations and or stock movement monday 2/3.

    Right on, I forgot to mention that the Prius plug-in is the winner for commutes over 50 miles with no charging in between. I often forget that although I may be an average commuter for the bay area, I'm a mega-commuter compared to most USA cities.

    These young engineers and support staff are on an adventure, they are pumped up! This is no PR Stunt, this is tomorrows emerging leaders today making history. We don't need to armchair quarterback this thing, let these young leaders have their day in the sun/snow/sleet/rain ...

    It would be irresponsible for Musk to pull his kids out of school for a romp through winter snow storms "just because".

    It is a resume filler for engineers to volunteer (or voluntell) for a romp through winter snow storms have their names listed on a Guiness World Record. Even if the world is not watching it's still an exciting geeky project.
