  • Another 'Typical' Tesla PR Stunt [View article]
    Nope San is absolutely right even for modern cars, the keyword is "recommends". You may choose otherwise but Toyota 2014 recommends 5,000 miles!

  • Will Tesla's Big Day Translate To Higher Earnings? [View article]
    You are completely ignoring the fact that the car told the driver some five minutes +- after impact to exit. All the video shows is the car after the exit!

  • The Potential Impact Of Quasi-Lease Repurchase Obligations On Tesla's Future [View article]
    I can't see why there will be any commission - sales directly to buyer.

    Prep? For sure, detailing and maybe ding removal but $10K is probably high can you consult a body shop that's more practical, eh?!

  • Can Tesla Reach 500,000 In Vehicle Sales Or Is Dougherty & Co. Overly Optimistic? [View article]
    @rhyse12, you may be right re the stock movement, however, you missed the point about the "argument".

    The argument is about the authors errors in reporting stats which effects the credibility of his thesis. The argument is not about his thesis on the current valuation. None of the posters attempting to "correct" the author questioned his thesis on the valuation being based upon reaching 500K, rather upon his shoddy research and facts.

  • What To Do With Tesla's Stock [View article]
    @Tom I find it hard to imagine, from what I read, that Julian was the only "offensive" poster. He may have tipped a few conversations but mostly after repeatedly stating the same false facts. Even if you can describe his comments accurately as "bullying" he's clearly one of the tamer "bullies" on SA?

  • In Summary, The Tesla Model S Is A Dirty Car [View article]
    Just curious, are you advising your clients to avoid or short because the Model S "is a dirty car", or because Tesla is a bad investment compared to other auto companies and or technology companies?

    On the surface these seem to me to be mutually exclusive reasons!?

  • Swayed By The Arguments In Tesla? [View article]
    @techwonk, I don't have a Tesla yet, but I do have one of those hybrids! And you're pretty off. There's plenty of infrastructure for the average commute and for a multi-city commute for the Model S to be considered a primary transportation vehicle.

    That infrastructure is one's home! I drive 110 miles a day, you'd be hard pressed to find someone with a longer commute. Even the 60Kwh Tesla will do fine with a charge in the evening ... at home.

  • Tesla Motors Meets Production Targets, But Will It Meet Profit Targets? [View article]
    I'm quite sure you are in error here Saibus, "... we are not that optimistic about customers plunking down $52.4K to wait 9 months for a car."

    I think you are confusing confguration with scheduling delivery and arranging financing 30 days out from delivery.

    For those fortunate enough to pay cash, it appears from the Tesla Forum that some of these folks were confused about writing a check 30 days out, at financing, or waiting until they pick up the car from the factory, then writing the check.

  • Tesla Motors (TSLA -2.7%) CEO Elon Musk blasts The New York Times in a series of tweets (I, II, III) over its weekend test drive of the Model S which went rather poorly. In a nutshell, the exec blames user error for the mishaps and says he will line up more journalists to do the same drive. He also promises that more detailed info on charging data will be released on the Tesla blog. If Musk gives any detail on productions numbers in advance of the company's Q4 report, things could get really exciting. [View news story]
    Let's see Boston to Manhattan right, 210 miles, I believe the current EPA rating is 268 miles and that Tesla's owner manual talks about a 20% drop for winter, and to charge in "storage" mode, not exactly sure what that means, but probably at least plug-in over night.

    So this reporter was an idiot to take a vehicle winter rated for 212 miles and not even give it a full charge. Regardless of what the readout was in the evening, not even the most dogged naysayers would think a battery would not further lose charge overnight. Sheesh.

    Or, this reporter was a very clever chat who just boosted the NYT's readership by ...

  • New Models From Honda And Audi Will Consign Tesla And Its Superchargers To A Smaller Niche [View article]
    I don't see how the reference to the CCS or CHAdeMO helps your case? Albeit the adapter for the Model S is steep, TODAY, but that's more about supply and demand, once Europe gets to 20-40K Tesla's on the road the price will most likely go down.

    But the possibility of Model S owners using an adapter to gain access to another network of charging stations just removes even more of the alleged and overblown "range anxiety".

    So instead of opting for a hybrid or a diesel "competitor", although even that's debatable, a potential buyer can go with the highly rated Model S and all its future cousins and now charge on any standard.

    I don't see the downside for Tesla Motors?

    Thanks GEA, it's weird that so many comments seem to dismiss the Snow. What's up with that?
