  • If You Own A Tesla Model S, Just Don't Dent It! [View article]
    So... what I'm hearing here is that we need to wait for a mass market EV... if only Tesla was planning to start producing one in 4-5 years.... oh well... back to destroying the future by burning oil...

    <this particular problem only hits Tesla owners which get exposed to it>

    .... Yeah.... ~2%.... sounds like a HUGE problem.... LOL

    Aluminum repair should get A LOT cheaper too... the Ford F-150 is now aluminum. The Ford F-150 is a truck sold by Ford Motor Company... they sell a lot of them.

    With all these problems it's no wonder 2% of Tesla owners said they wouldn't buy the car again.... wait... that means that 98% WOULD buy the car again...

    Ok... now I'm confused...

  • EVs As A Status Symbol, And A Possible Tesla Advantage [View article]
    The 'EVs have an environmental impact too' argument is insane... no one I'm aware of is trading in a bicycle for an EV. Even if they're trading in a Prius the impact over 200k miles is SIGNIFICANTLY with an EV. The only quasi-valid argument is if the electricity comes from coal. Since we're adding 10w of Solar production for every 1w of increased EV consumption annually that argument gets less and less valid every day.

  • The One Variable That Will Determine Tesla's Future [View article]
    The Legacy Auto Manufacturing Enterprises are obviously only making EVs that compete in the EV niche... Why would they want to accelerate the stranding of capital they have invested in Engines, Transmissions and Emissions Control? Nissan and Audi have plans to produce an EV that can compete with ICE with a ~250 miles range by 2020 so they may finally start accepting reality.

    There is a third possibility... the LAMEs could swallow their pride and adopted Teslas superior charging protocol. Elon has already stated publicly that the SC network is open to other Manufacturers if they help support it.

    'This battery is too light and small' said no one ever.... Tesla getting the cost of batteries down through scale is the important part.

    One of my primary motivations to purchasing a Tesla is my time in the military. The external effects of our addiction to fossil fuels is disgusting... Petroleum addicts are disgusting. Turning my back on ICE is about A LOT more than money.

    Ever wonder what the out-of-pocket expense is for 500k miles worth of gasoline for a car with >400HP? I'll give you a hint; it's north of 40k.

    THEN let's ask NASA what your children are going to pay... http://climate.nasa.gov

    THEN let's ask the DOD what the world is going to pay... http://1.usa.gov/1BoZIXJ

    The costs for fossil fuels keeps rising while the costs of batteries keeps falling... only morons or monsters stay addicted to petroleum.
