  • Tesla's New $120,000 Flagship Matches The $61,000 Dodge [View article]
    The hardware is there... once activated the car will 'stay in its lane' not a lane departure warning... the car drives itself; it's 'Auto Pilot'.

    No one else can do this...

    Really? Who else makes an AWD, 691HP, 90+mpge car that seats 7?... I must have missed that...

    Merc and Infinity don't make a car that can drive itself from on-ramp to off-ramp... Tesla will have 'auto-pilot' not 'adaptive cruise / lane departure warning' BIG difference.

    If I could fill the Dodge Hellcat with the juice off my roof I might consider it.

    Hey.... aren't you the guy that claimed no one used the Supercharger in Barstow? After recently seeing cars waiting for the 4 cars charging to finish... not sure I can believe anything you say...

  • Tesla's Norway Deliveries Drop 47% In The Quarter [View article]
    When a company is Production constrained how do you differentiate a drop in SALES with a drop in DELIVERIES? If they're shifting shipments to China and the UK wouldn't that cause a drop in other countries? The lead time for a car in the US is still ~2 months...

  • Could Toyota's Upcoming FCV Become A Threat To Tesla? [View article]
    So the trade off for a fill-up taking ~5min vs ~30min is;

    - Fuel is ~$8/gallon instead of Free or <$1 gallon equivalent @ home
    - You can't fill up at home
    - FAR fewer places to "fill up"
    - Less Power
    - No Regenerative Braking
    - ~50% less efficient
    - Hydrogen station costs $2M vs $0.2M for Supercharger

    Yeah... I'm not worried.

  • Is Tesla Model S Really A Quality Green Car? [View article]
    "I know its not politically correct, but atmospheric CO2 has never killed anyone."

    That's kinda like saying guns don't kill people... bullets do.

    You're right... atmospheric CO2 doesn't kill people but the famine driven droughts, stronger storms, higher storm surges, wildfires, spread of diseases like malaria and civil unrest caused by high food prices DRIVEN by climate change kill plenty.

    HOLLY CRAP!!! Talk about OUT RIGHT LIES!!! I stopped reading at annual maintenance is mandatory.

    I have a P85 with 45k miles

    1- My initial set of Continental DWs lasted >20k miles and that was with several trips to the 1/4 mile track.

    2- My 1st service was at ~15k miles and last service was ~44k miles... the annual check IS NOT mandatory.

    3- I have had ZERO drive train issues.

    Also comparing Ford maintenance costs to Tesla is INSANE!! Does Ford occur concierge service for ALL their vehicles? Does Ford have a fleet that is still 100% under warranty? Has Ford service been directed to "never make a profit"? Does Ford loan you a $90k car while your vehicle is being serviced? Does Ford pay for the gas of your rental if there are no Tesla loaners available?

    Since Elon has freed up his patent lawyers maybe they can start pursuing slander on Seeking Alpha.

    Hmmm... so should we go back to switchboards and manually lit kerosene street lamps because that employed more people?
