    Nope, but for those who can, it's the best car in class. Also-- did you get the memo regarding the Model 3 in 2017?

    How are you so sure the rumor today was false? SA doesn't report this correctly; the rumor was that Apple is considering a strategic investment in Tesla.

    The P85D does 0-60 in 2.9 seconds. The new e-tron R8 will do it in 3.9 seconds. Also-- tell me again what the price will be for the e-tron R8?

  • Tesla: The Floor Is Yours [View article]
    Yeah, it's a real problem unless you're a company that is growing by about 50% per year (into the foreseeable future), and will be producing millions of cars in 10 years. They need to aggressively spend in order to hit their goals. You don't know much about growth companies?

    It's called a high growth company. Do the other oem's have a goal of increasing production by 50% every year for the foreseeable future? Pouring money into new markets is how any company expands. Each market is so very unique. Does any other car company have such ambitions of blanketing the globe with Supercharger stations?

  • Why Is Tesla Throttling Production? [View article]
    incomeYield-- have you looked at prices of some used Model S's and compared them to the likes of BMW, Mercedez, etc? The Model S holds value MUCH better than any other car in its class.

    I don't think anyone really knows where gas prices will be in 5 years.

    If you listened to the call, they expect being significantly cash flow positive (after CapEx, etc) by Q4 this year. They've been profitable on a non-GAAP basis for 2 years already.

    Yeah, because they won't be getting any more orders at all in Q1. In the CC a couple days ago, Musk laughed and said we have too much demand for the P85D. The fact of the matter is, demand for the D was much higher than Tesla expected. That's what they said.

    Also in the call, when asked how have Chinese orders been trending of late, Musk stated that:

    "The trend is positive already. We see it improving every week. Elementary things which were missing early on: maps, directions. A lot of functionality which is getting added. Trend is positive. Do not have any significant concerns from it now. Many speculators bought cars last year and sold at higher price in China. Gave inflated sense of demand in the beginning, wasn’t real."
