  • Early excitement over Tesla's 3rd-gen platform  [View news story]

    to investors it is always a concern who will come out on top.To most of us ecar enthusiasts it matters not who is producing them in the future, what matters is that tesla has started something that will now be unstoppable. I personally believe that the company will continue to outperform the giants.

  • Tokyo Motor Show Preview: Toyota to unveil hydrogen concept car  [View news story]
    A lot of great comments about hydrogen and why Musk was right,

  • I'm An Irrationally Exuberant Investor In Tesla  [View article]
    Great article.
    DONAMP - read yours as well. Spot on.
    We have the same "Elected Dictatorship" here in British Columbia.

    We have mainly Hydro electricity here (except for the cheap power we import from the US at night to keep the grid level). I am retired and don't have a spare $100K for a car but still am considering buying a model S. Being a financial adviser in the past, I understand the folly of unbridled expansion and not paying attention to pollution. A 3% growth means a doubling in about 25 years. If my children and grandchildren are to have a usable planet we need to find ways to reduce pollution, not continue to increase it. Electric vehicles are the FINAL word in personal transportation. There is no other mode that can come close to the efficiency.

    Oh yes this is a financial site. I own some Tesla stock. Sold some recently but will buy back once the shorts are out. As with any stock there will be ups and downs but we do need to fight for Tesla.

    We also need to find a way to take back the political system, so all of us can have a say in the world our children inherit.

    Sounds like he learned a lesson about socializing risk from the banks.
    Three cheers.

    "None of them have the energy-loss problems associated with batteries and power grids."

    So the oil moves from the field, to the refinery, to the station and into your vehicle with no use of energy. There is massive waste along the way with all the associated pollution.
    Get real.

  • Tesla Patent Applications Reveal Next Generation EV Technology  [View article]
    There are millions of people out there who could use an EV in the current configuration.
    MOST families have 2 vehicles. for them having one that is an EV makes a lot of sense. NO range problems NO charging time problems.
    Drive it to work and back then plug it in. Period. Save tons of money and leave a livable planet for our grandkids. Are we not allowed to walk before we go supersonic?
    And please, no more about battery fires. There are millions of ICE out there and we still hear about crashes where people are fried when the vehicle BURSTS into flames.

    Amazing, the car stops when the power reads zero.
    When the fuel tank of an ICE reads EMPTY do you still expect it to keep going?
    And battery fires, ICE have had over a hundred years of development and billions sold. They still burst into flames and incinerate the occupants.

  • Boeing's (BA -0.6%) lithium battery problem looks to be just a bump in the road for electric car investors, says Seeking Alpha contributor Randy Carlson. But, if they prove to be a fire hazard because of a fundamental flaw, the bleed-over has the potential to put electric vehicle programs at some major car companies in jeopardy. It's all a question design versus technology, and if it in fact winds up being a design flaw, those electric car makers with similar battery features could wind up big losers in the race for market share.  [View news story]
    Fires are dangerous and painful or deadly for those involved in them.
    The problem with the batteries will be worked out.
    The problem with people burning up in cars using gasoline will NEVER be fixed. Another vehicle went over a bank yesterday and the 2 occupants were burned to death.

  • The burning question over how many Model S vehicles Tesla Motors (TSLA +0.5%) manufactured in 2012 might be answered if a parsing of the VIN numbers issued by the automaker can be trusted. According to anecdotal reports, the highest VIN number issued so far is #3383 - just above Tesla's latest guidance calling for 2,700 to 3,225 units.  [View news story]
    I don't know how well the company is doing but I know the stock is doing great. It took 3 days to find 100 shares for sale.
