  • Tesla: The Only Thing 'Luxury' Is The Company's Stock Price [View article]
    I'm sure the horse was fun transportation back in its day as well, however, the up-keep by today's standard, is WAY beyond most folks financial means.

    Have fun driving your money-pit! I'll be sure to wave, as I blow past you in traffic, while calculating my ever rising TSLA stocks!!! :-)

  • Tesla: The Only Thing 'Luxury' Is The Company's Stock Price [View article]
    Yes, it's a much lower priced vehicle, that has FAR more advanced "Luxury" features than all other vehicles on the planet (especially compared to Porsche and Ferrari), and a dedicated following of loyal owners and fans, that love Tesla FAR more than every car-maker on Earth!... http://usat.ly/1HY2ypj

    Thus, not only is Tesla stock "Luxury", the Model S is the five-star 'Monte Carlo' of the auto industry (well, I should say, for those that 'actually' drive, and don't just want a gallery piece to shine once a week, and drive twice a year, well below the posted speed-limit).

    In a Porsche and or Ferrari, you CAN'T...

    1) Surf the internet on a giant 17" touch-screen.
    2) Get four passengers, and all their luggage in it.
    3) Re-fuel it in the comfort of your own garage (thus, avoiding touching nasty germ-ridden fuel-pumps, and breathing carcinogenic toxic fumes).
    4) Blow-away just about everything on the road, with just as simple push of the accelerator peddle.
    5) Get real-time integrated navigation and traffic info via Google-maps on a massive 17" touch-screen in HD photo resolution (via Google-Earth).
    7) Drive single-occupancy in the comfort of the HOV (diamond-lane), thus avoiding stand-still rush-hour traffic.

    I can keep going, but I'm sure you get the picture... ;-)

    As opposed to the Hundreds of Billions we give Big-Oil to destroy our planet, and force our troops to fight in BS wars, and or the $50 Billion we gave GM ($10 Billion of which we will never get back), to build 'death-mobiles' (100 murdered at last count), it makes Elon's substantially beneficially tiny subsidies look like peanuts. (give me a break!)

  • Barclays cuts Tesla target, as "crossing that chasm is harder than it looks" [View news story]
    Yes, true, that will be the inevitable future when EV's dominate the roads eventually. However, by that time, many of us will not really care about driving in traffic, as the auto-pilot will allow us to enjoy up-to-date news, entertainment, social-media, etc, while we all kick-back, and enjoy the ride to our destination.

    For now, I will enjoy the free life-changing perks that come with driving the most highly-evolved vehicle on the planet :-)

    Sure! As long as the Uber driver will cart me around 24/7 in a Model S P85D (or similar fast vehicle... Ferrari, Lambo, etc), for eight years! That would be a deal!!!

    You are correct; they are completely different! I haven't had to touch a virus-ridden gas pump in over two years / 40k miles, since getting my Tesla. I charge in the comfort of my garage, at night when my utility rates are super-low (FYI, gas prices would have to be far below $0.99 cents per gal, to match what I pay per mile in my MS via electrical power).

    Never-mind, I get to shave well over 25%-40% of my commute time, by driving single-occupancy in the HOV (carpool ) lane. Add in the time saved from not having to wait in a Costco gas-station line, and I shave an extra fifteen to thirty minutes off my precious time away from more important aspects of life, (like family, friends, and making MONEY!!!)

    So, again, YES, you are correct, owning a Tesla is NOTHING like owning anything with an archaic Internal Combustion Engine!....

    It’s a BILLION TIMES BETTER!

  • BMW And Volkswagen Join Forces To Take On Tesla's Supercharger Network [View article]
    It's funny how some people see these things as detrimental to Tesla. This is exactly want Tesla wants!!!! A large growing infrastructure for EV’s, will only benefit Tesla in the long run!

    Remember, soon Tesla won’t just be a ‘car-maker’ anymore ;-)

    I would ponder to bet Elon Musk is more excited about this news, than Audi is! ;-)

  • Report : Drop in U.S. sales for Tesla Motors in September [View news story]
    Well duh! Everyone is plopping down a deposit for the new 2015 'P85D'!

    Just read the Tesla boards... already thousands of Model S owners want to trade-up to the 'P85D'. Soon Tesla will be selling thousands of low-mile certified pre-owned P85+'s, and pushing out thousands of new P85D's (which is faster than a MILLION DOLLAR HYPER CAR, priced well below a average Porsche 911, and with auto-pilot in every model!)

    Time to BUY!!!!!

  • There Is Something In The 'D' Which Might Prompt Direct Competition [View article]
    Valueseeker,

    Other way around. Most high HP cars designed for the track, are useless in the 'real-world'. Tesla are 'real-world' vehicles, designed for folks who like to blow-away exotics, most of which will never see a racetrack or the Autobahn in their lifetime. :-)

    Kind of like this guy... http://bit.ly/1136frI

    Skeptic84,

    McLaran P1.

    I drive circles around Corvette's for fun. Most of them are still looking for their 'sport' setting, or whatever else they have to push, pull, etc to make them go faster, long after I am already gone. LOL!
