  • The Silliness Of Tesla's 10kWh Back-Up Battery [View article]
    And for less than 1/2 the price you can have AGM or even flooded Pb batteries of the same capacity without the need for expensive Charge and Discharge battery management.

    In stationary installation Pb-A are the most proven and reliable as well as cheaper per kWh.

  • Fiat Chrysler Automobiles peers through the looking glass [View news story]
    The report completely misses the point that people buy different brands because they WANT something different and not the SAME thing with different logo label.

    More than 50% of new vehicle buyers will NEVER buy the same vehicle over again even if extremely satisfied, only just because they want a CHANGE !!!

    The publicity generated by Automotive Press does filter to general public rather fast when it is DOGE or FIAT with "Jeep" label for $$$ more and otherwise identical.

    Just as people are not willing to pay extra for Cadillac version of Volt, nor will they pay more for FIAT version of ????

    After all if company makes less then $100 on every $27,000 vehicle they sell they are in trouble, but not as bad a trouble as OEM that has net loss on EVERY vehicle ever made (TSLA).

    You can see come comparison here:

  • Tesla Is Having A Bumper March In Norway But That Just Brings The Ugliness Closer [View article]
    Any time someone else (tax payers or other ICE car owners) is paying for your EV ride it is great. But once you have to pay the true EV cost (battery cost inclusive) then it is not all that great. I remember the days when EV charging in Burbank, CA was FREE, now it is $2.00 per hour and about to got to $3.50 - so have not used it in last two years. Even at $2.00 it is already 8 times more expensive than plugging in at home. FREE Parking, yes if every time you get a parking ticket you are willing to spend 4 hours to get it dismissed by judge in the traffic court, it becomes cheaper to put the 25 cents in.....etc.

  • Tesla component part of RAV4 EV recall [View news story]
    If HONDA had 118 owners that had to replace engine in the first year it would be the worst vehicle ever made, even if they sold million others that had no issues, but for TESLA owners that seems to be "OK" and "normal".....

  • Tesla Q4 Results Disappointed Investors [View article]
    Lot of interesting statistics that should make any investor to dump TSLA immediately, but as marshgre pointed out, who cares the per share price is up !!!

    Apparently the people who trade 5+ MILLION SHARES daily do not care, as long as someone else buys them for more they just paid for them minutes ago.

  • Tesla: The Floor Is Yours [View article]
    No matter what you call it, re-investment or pouring money into new markets (China) or charging stations with FREE charging, in the end it translates at the 25% margin into $10,000 loss per vehicle sold.

    Just compare that to any other vehicle oem:

  • Millennials have the steering wheel now [View news story]
    TESLA is not even on a shopping list for the 4+ millions of potential "young" buyers, the dream cars are Mustang and Camaro (just ask them !!!) but they can only afford $14,000 used car.....
    Their $1,000 down on such car however has 20%+ interest rate so over 5 years they pay over $30,000 for it, just go shopping with someone who does not have a co signer with 700+ score.

  • The electric vs. hydrogen debate just got interesting [View news story]
    And 5 years latter it is still only a mad scientists dream.
    It is funny how journalists that never finished high school write articles about inventions that defy physics, chemistry and claim that they are a reality !!!

    Production of aluminum that is used in the process is very energy intensive and is not FREE, thus the over all process is more expensive than current cost of Gasoline !!!

  • How Tesla's Deceptive Self-Defined Gross Margin REALLY Compares To Porsche's [View article]
    When The Emperor Wears No Clothes, none in his court will point that out, but an outsider just might.

    For company that never made profit using GAAP, and pays no dividend and probably never will any investment in their stock is pure speculation and is best left for day traders.

    Any long term investment is simply a foolish gamble.

    Any margin no matter how calculated is an illusion if the over all company operation generates nothing but loss year after year - with no real plan to EVER make profit !!!
