  • Debate stirred up over government incentives for Tesla Motors [View news story]
    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!!!!!

    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!

    Yes, and Tesla has never disappointed me (ever). In fact, with two years of ownership, I am still blown-away by the new things they constantly re-invent for my P85 (every two months its like a new car).

    When Tesla announce something, they actually follow-through with it in spades (and then some!), unlike all the other (cough)... 'car-companies', and their pathetic excuses for ‘prototypes’ that never see the light of day.

    Pot Pie,

    No, just a two-year-old 'Signature P85' that has been the best vehicle I have ever owned in my thirty-two years of driving.

    I do like the idea of 'Musksiah'! :-) In my lifetime, I have never seen so many people THAT excited to be at any vehicle announcement event EVER! I don’t even think Enzo Ferrari, Ferdinand Porsche, or much less Henry Ford ever got the kind of public reception that Musk gets.

    I guess when you invent great things for people, great people will cherish your inventions!

    I don't think Benz has an auto-pilot that will valet your car without a driver. Tesla is a billion years ahead with its new features. Benz looks like a horse and buggy compared to Tesla.

    A five-door sedan that can go as fast from 0-60 MPH than a million-dollar hyper-car, and for well under $120k, is just icing on the cake.

    And for the record, yes I was at the event last night, and sat in the 'D', as it took off faster than a rocket-ship, and then watched the driver literally take his hands and feet off the controls, and it drove itself, changed lanes, and slowed down to a complete stop without ever touching anything. IMHO, NOTHING CAN TOUCH TESLA NOW... PERIOD!!!!
