  • Tesla: The Short Of The Decade? [View article]
    and who will be making that battery? Tesla. They released their patents so everyone can use their technology, but that tech needs the batteries....and who happens to be building a gigafactory?

  • The Problem With SolarCity [View article]
    Many good points but the comment "Barriers to entry are small. There is nothing technically that SCTY does that cannot be done by any other major player." overlooks the relationship the company has with Tesla Motors. The advantage of offering battery packs is most likely just the tip of the iceberg.

  • Buzz building over Tesla gigafactory [View news story]
    A valid point but with all their patents (pending) concerning different battery types, I am sure they will build the plant in a way that makes transitions to newer tech much easier and less costly.

  • Tesla's Crushing Battery Supply Constraints [View article]
    A valid point but it does not take into consideration advances in battery (not just lithium-ion) technology. Tesla has filed for multiple patents on metal-air type batteries.

  • Shares of Tesla Motors (TSLA -4.4%) fall lower in early trading. Though much of the action could still be profits being taken off the table, the news that Kandi Technologies landed government approval in China to sell an all-electric sedan is an interesting development for the EV market. [View news story]
    Different technology. They offer batteries that can be swapped so range isnt a factor.

  • Tesla: Mr. Musk's Wild Ride At Your Expense [View article]
    Tesla is now the only US car company that does not owe the government money. Your argument completely disproves the point you are trying to make. You do realize that there are subsidies for oil as well right? Man, you must have lost a ton of money from shorting.

  • Tesla Motors (TSLA +14.6%) tightens its grip on the shorts, now up 43% in 2 days following Wednesday's earnings. Ivan Hoff extrapolates into the future and suggests Tesla could be a $100B company in 10 years (that's all?). Musk's SolarCity (SCTY +9.4%) gains as well. [View news story]
    keep shorting it then, you'll make a ton of money in the end....

  • Tesla's Obscenely Expensive Cure For Range Anxiety [View article]
    "Support from the auto industry is fading fast." Can you please provide some substance behind this claim with some links to articles? Is this why Toyota is now working with Tesla technology...

  • Tesla Motors (TSLA) CEO Elon Musk is out with a blog post defending the range performance of the Model S. After putting out a combative series of tweets on the test drive of a Model S detailed in the New York Times, Musk goes even further with detailed charts and accusations of the objectivity of the NYT reporter. "When the facts didn’t suit his opinion, he simply changed the facts." [View news story]
    He didnt have to follow the instructions to the letter. What he did need to do was use common sense, and know that if he does not charge the car enough, it will not go as far as it would on a full charge. He also shouldn't have deliberately lied about numerous details about his trip. Its false reporting and he should be fired regardless.
