  • The New York Times downgrades Adam Jonas [View news story]
    Often NYT articles aren't worth the ink and paper they use up - talk about a waste of resources - we remember the Broder coverage, that was a fiasco - and they act as if they don't shill for the automobile companies and the oil companies, where much of their revenue comes from - it seems as though the short bears can only see from one SA negative article to the next, they hang on every word and revel in the dark predictions - fortunately Musk vision is 20 years ahead, not 2 days - so the bears remain as always, short and without vision - and to top it off SA recommends a whole list of short sighted articles and "recommend them for you" - wow - however, it is hard to argue with experience - I own the stock and am up over 800% - I own the car and agree with every word CR reported - I wonder how the shorts compare? - are they up 800% while trying to destroy an all American company by betting against it - I am sure they enjoy driving their clean diesel cars - hmmm, I just read an article on how all those clean diesel cars are choking the residents of London - so my advice is breath deeply and enjoy it while you can - I won't be around in 20 years, that's okay - I will have done my little, teeny part is helping to clean up the environment and clean out all the bears, because bears belong outdoors, they can't see the forest for the trees anyway -

    Tesla Motors is more valuable to humanity than GM and by extension, more valuable period

  • Tesla Motors signs lithium deal with Bacanora [View news story]
    Tool - do you prefer the massive oil spill in the Gulf ala BP, or perhaps you are happy with the aftermath (20 years) of the Exxon Valdez - or perhaps you like the new table tops being created in coal country, wiping out forests and towns below them - I think the desert is beautiful, but the forests, oceans and Alaska more so - please focus your environmental concerns on those areas where people and other species actually live - I will join you -

  • Smashing rating for the Tesla Model S P85D from Consumer Reports [View news story]
    100 year old car companies with millions of cars under their belts not getting it right is a much bigger deal than a 3 year old automobile / company with a brand new product that breaks every car mold out there - the owners, like myself, will definitely cut them some slack BECAUSE driving/owning a Model S is a completely unique experience, from plugging it in at night to get a full charge to driving it the next morning, which is effortless - on the freeway, the slightest accelerator increase and I'm doing 90mph -its a different experience -

  • Smashing rating for the Tesla Model S P85D from Consumer Reports [View news story]
    Most important comment from tester and other owners - "I will never go back" - so the reliability issue must be a non starter - i.e., a few teething issues and then extremely reliable - I own a Model S and that has been my exact experience -

  • Tesla: You Are Funding Elon Musk's Iron Man Lifestyle [View article]
    Tesla - 10 year old company (5 years in plant), 160 robots - Ford 100 year old company - don't care how many robots - none produce a reasonably respectable clean energy car -

  • Report Claims Mercedes Ditches Tesla And Upgrades Electric Car To 310 Miles Of Range [View article]
    If Mercedes builds a "good" car, not great, just good, this can do nothing but help Tesla - It will provide proof to the masses that electrification of transportation is both possible AND supported by the name Mercedes - then, after accepting that an electric car is an okay thing, ala Mercedes, people will compare the two and Tesla sales will skyrocket - if both Audi and Mercedes do this, the will extrapolate the numbers in a positive direction for Tesla - we already know per Anton the the Audi will be a four passenger SUV (???) - wow - can't wait for that one -

  • Tesla: You Are Funding Elon Musk's Iron Man Lifestyle [View article]
    Better his lifestyle than those of the big oil, big three, big pharma, or insurance execs - one only has to go to the Tesla Motors website and watch the videos on the robotic factory that build both the car and the drive train, or the video on the power wall, or watch some of the accomplishments of Space X, and then consider Solar City which is helping folks achieve the use of clean energy - Nicolai Tesla was a man of vision, but very little common sense which is why, when convinced by Mr. Westinghouse that his royalty on AC energy could not be paid, he gave it away and basically died a pauper while Westinghouse and ilk became filthy rich - so my money stays with Musk and his visions - today Tesla's royalties would be worth trillions - I am appalled at all those who decry Musk's effort, who want an ALL America company to fail - he brings jobs and hope for a better future using clean fuel and leaving the hillside and mountains undisturbed - to those who wish to short the stock, may you have a rude awakening - if I lose my investment, so be it, at least it is in the interest of humanity -

  • Tesla's Executive Exodus Continues [View article]
    ckarabin - $8-10 a gallon in Europe - $2-3 a gallon in the US - please explain why, how is this possible? - here is a clue - S U B S I D I E S
    Alex, can you post the link for the info from the monetary fund - thanks

    "Fossil fuel companies are benefitting from global subsidies of $5.3tn (£3.4tn) a year, equivalent to $10m a minute every day, according to a startling new estimate by the International Monetary Fund."

  • Tesla's Executive Exodus Continues [View article]
    Yes, and most of that ends up in the ICE driver pockets here in the US- How you say? - Gas is $8-10 a gallon in Europe, here in the US it is $2-3 - no math required, just huge subsidies that every driver of an oily car receives everyday - there are no pioneers among ICE drivers - Tesla drivers, wealthy or not, are the pioneers of today -

  • A Possible Solution To The Tesla Supercharger Accounting Puzzle [View article]
    I am a happy Model S owner - I use the SC's occasionally, when traveling beyond the range of a single charge - I personally cannot imagine going to the SC for a charge and waiting for it to complete unless I need to read the newspaper or catch up on emails - it is so much easier to pull into my garage, set the car for midnight to begin charging (most attractive rate) and wake up to a full battery - the $2 or $3 that I would save at an SC doesn't even compute compared to the ease of filling up while I sleep - I suspect that most Model S owners, at least of the ones I've met feel the same way - and on top of that I have PV panels that provide ALL my electricity needs including the energy for the S -

  • Tesla Motors adjusts referral policy in Virginia [View news story]
    NightFury - I am a happy Models S owner and while I agree that the referral and discount are very very small, I'll tell you what did happen - I sat down and sent an email to all the people in my address book - within 24 hours I had several replies, with one thank you because he was thinking of buying a Model S - if all Tesla owners did the same as i did (probably not gonna happen), but theoretically speaking, then the 60,000 + owners would reach 6 million prospects, and if each owner only encouraged one sale, thats 60,000 new car sales - initially I thought $1000, no big deal, then I thought again, lets get the ball rolling with more speed - no one has what Tesla does - read the AAA report on green cars - amazing how many new players there are, just as Elon hoped - the more green cars, the more fuel savings, the lower the gas prices for the rest of the crowd - all the naysayers and oil supporters should be ecstatic - the oily crowd is so short sighted - oil companies have been getting subsidized for 100 years - NO you say, then explain why gas in Europe and England is often $8-10 per gallon, while here at home we are at $2 - subsidy somewhere - if gas prices here get to those heights, every Tesla will be worth twice what one paid for it -

  • Tesla cut to Sell at S&P Capital IQ on cash concerns [View news story]
    Not correct - per previous post and reports, Tesla owns the shell, and Panasonic will provide the equipment and the know how - 6000 Japanese Panasonic employees applied for the 18 lead jobs in Reno - per the area planner, Mr. Hawthorne, Reno anticipates 50-60,000 new jobs - so rather than decry it, why not support the effort, the country can use it - yes, 2016 will be at the very least an interesting ride (no pun intended)
