  • Pickup Truck Industry Ready For A Tesla Entry [View article]
    It only makes sense! Of course we are going to build a truck as a matter of fact I can see Tesla selling the Technology to a Tractor Trailor Manufacturer if not building one themselves now that is an industry that would attack the nation wide super charger network with verocity and would certainly utilize the battery swapping option without hesitation. Go Tesla!!!!

  • State Of Innovation In The Auto Industry And The Allure Of Tesla [View article]
    Well Alpha Bet Soup, here it is> The point is an superbly evasive but simple one! As I have said Tesla Motors has far reaching implications and shall impact more than just the automotive industry. Don't discount the Retail Investor, what other company that you know in any time period have retail investors been able to affect the price of a stock as they have here with tsla.? Tesla is an innovative company in many ways, they actually have inadvertently benefited from a business model used in the entertainment industry where indie artist and bands solicit fans to finance their futures (there web sites dedicated purely to this and many have been very successful). By this the retail investors are going to buy any and all stocks dumped by the so-called pros (Big Boys). Regardless of the disparity in the who makes the most money (why are you counting the other mans money any way) they are eager to invest reap these outstanding profits, and buy there vehicles regardless of all the professional and speculative cynicism. This is a new era of time in every aspect of LIFE as WE KNEW IT. And TESLA is a CLEAR SIGN of that. Social media is another how much stock do you have in twitter; facebook or any other? Tell me did you think google would be teasing 1K? Do you even have any stock in google that you can say you purchased when it was under $150.00? My point is this throw conventional wisdom and standardized speculative theory out the window it doesn't apply here? This is a different beast (not the company but the situation). Tesla affects the power supply industry, smart device industry, automotive industry, and moreover the financial industry, just to name a few. They have rolled all into one many unnoticed innovations that in their time were viewed as WOW but not NOW. Remember when Smart houses were first introduced, they were creature comforts that only the super rich could afford. Even now how many homes are there that are totally automated? Yet there are security company's that now offer you the convenience to control and monitor your home at an affordable cost to most Americans. Yes this is a stock issue, Economics [supply and demand] well all these other innovations created the demand and TESLA is the SUPPLIER. I will give you this bit of advice, Hedge your self in this manner; lets say you are a Millionaire, with 2ml liquid to invest? I would suggest to you with your short sightedness and pessimistic view on this stock to take an amount equal to 35percent of what you have to play and go long. Don't touch it no matter what and in the end I can assure you that if nothing more you will break even with the losses you are going to endure for the life of your pessimism on TESLA as a stock.

    The other conventional manufacturers will never be a threat to TESLA MOTORS, how can they? They are too far vested in the combustion world; their operatives have merely trying to stall TESLA'S momentum long enough for them to 1. Manipulate their cash reserves in order to make money shorting TESLA through 5th party shells; 2. Get a vehicle into production that is patronizing to their Loyalist so that they claim Full EV Status; #. Only a PURE EV company can compete and even then they will do as PC manufacturers and cell phone carriers have done; License products and services from TESLA! Make all your arguments and gather all your HYPOTHETICAL Statistics, it is all irellevant and history has shown that time and time again. TESLA is the new GOLD Standard for the Automotive Industry, The old guard will not dye out but they are going to the fourth Balcony. So Just take your seats get out your BINOCULARS and be prepared to be GRUMPY OLD MEN. Petroleum is used to widely to ever go away and therefore combustion engines will be around for quite some time (just like analog TV and on the same scale eventually). I'll always Love a 65 Thunderbird or a 66 Plymouth Satellite, and the 35 Cord Phaeton will always be one of the most Beautiful vehicles ever built but that has no bearing on the fact that Tesla will grow just as I have always said it would. Not do to any of the metrics you geniuses have spouting but simply because it is a new era of time and this is the age of New Technology, ALL HAIL TESLA MOTORS!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Tesla: Recharging Its Evaluation [View article]
    You see eventually everyone else will come around as well, now as to the super charger stations. The truth is just like with AT&T and all the other phone carriers, who's lines and network does every use AT&t's, even with the cellular service providers they are all using one of THREE major networks systems. And so it shall be with Tesla's Supercharger stations, the smart manufacturers will get on board with a licensing agreement why not? It will be surely cost effective for them to all have a universal plug that crosses brands and by not having to deal with construction, permits and everything else that goes with establishing a charging station they cant lose. Tesla earns more profits from what they charge to charge at their stations and everyone has a nation wide network of stations. When valuating TESLA you have to look at the big picture, here is a big ground floor investment for all of your followers and subscribers, I intend to design and sell to the automotive industry a universal charging outlet and receptical for use in all vehicles which will make it easier for consumers to re-Charge their vehicles everywhere especially at TESLA SUPERCHARGER STATIONS, that is if my buddy Elon Musk and his Engineers haven't already done so. Who has seed money for me to do this?!?!?!?!?!?! Yes I am Serious

  • Tesla Motors: Trade Secrets Will Win Big [View article]
    This is probably the best written article on the fate of the automotive industry I have read thus far! The facts are just that FACT! Denial is a wicked desease that blinds its victim just before disabling their motor skills and causing them to wallow in self pity which empowers their stubborness out of sheer pride and self imposed ignorance. We are in a new age now and this is the new age of automotive advancement. Alas a vehicle with a Motor and not an Engine. Gasoline powered will be around for quite some time however they will take a back seat to EV's in the long run and Tesla is the Drum Major!

  • GM CEO Dan Akerson has created a small team to study Tesla (TSLA) and the potential threat it poses to the auto giant. Vice chairman Steve Girsky: "[Akerson] thinks Tesla could be a big disrupter if we’re not careful ... History is littered with big companies that ignored innovation that was coming their way." Akerson has been busy trying to speed up the pace at GM implements new technologies, and promised in March GM would launch an EV with a 200-mile range. Meanwhile, Tesla is working on lowering charging times at its supercharging stations to 5-10 minutes from 20. CTO J.B. Straubel cautions "it’s not going to happen in a year from now." [View news story]
    This explains why the market makers have been working so hard to stunt the growth of tTesla's stock. They have been lobbied by the big 5 to slow Tesla down in order to give them some time to come up with an answer. They can't do to Elon Musk what they did to John DeLorean, so they have devised to slow its influx of cash which would enable it to invest in it's building on their charging station infrastructure. Those Car Dealerships whom have opposed Tesla's retail model probably have received some form of incentive monies to file their frivolous lawsuits. However the plain truth is that as I have said in the past .tsla will be at $300.00 by this time next year and at $800 in five years.
    They couldn't stop IBM, They can't do anything about Microsofts dominance, They couldn't stifel Steve Job's Ingenuity, and Henry Ford of all people proved that innovation in manufacturing of Automobiles is KING! PS: the FORD motor company has played with the EV idea years for more than two decades but when your profits are held up and hedged about by investments in OIL, why would you support EV's; Lest you be SUICIDAL!

  • Tesla's '5 Part Trilogy' Grand Finale - All Signs Point To Battery Swapping Or Faster Charging [View article]
    I have been LONNNNNNNNNGGGGG on TESLA from the very start. It is ingenious and way outside the box while extremely relevant to today's standards of living. It was said that by now the world would cease to exist to exist as we know it. This is the new age of LIFE and all that is so-called "GREEN" and VIRTUAL is going to gain perpetual momentum. The reason Tesla is a long term winner is that Mr. Elon Musk is doing it right. First there was IBM, then came Bill Gates; Then there was Apple. This is the Predecessor of life to come. How many of you live in HOMES that are fully automated from a central computer based system, basically all electric with a solar back-up system, then you are the ones whom ushered in this revolution in automotive technology! The advantage that Tesla has over all other CAR manufacturers is that it was built from the ground up in a new era with the most important factor ever out front; The Customer, and their state of BEING. Go long I guarantee that we will be at $785.00 in five years and $225.00 by next spring.
