    Suboptimal range and range anxiety are not the same thing where I went to school.

  • Driving range the talk on Tesla Motors [View news story]
    I would not be disappointed in that, especially if it were sophisticated enough to take into account traffic conditions, wind and temp. etc.

    So I put in my destination and "know" if I am not diverted to a charger, I will make it with charge left.

    I think that meets the promise of no more range anxiety

  • Tesla to unveil Model S software update [View news story]
    I would guess new A.I. in navigation routes you to a Super Charger if it determines that you need an extra charge to make your destination. If not, it will govern your speed so that you can arrive with some charge left. Picks best alternative (quickest arrival time) given speed reduction needs versus time to divert and charge.

  • Tesla Is Not The Next iPhone [View article]
    Thanks for that. A worthwhile read.
    There is another advantage which I have not yet seen articulated which is the accuracy of the "go pedal" coupled with the near instantaneous response to changes in input both acceleration and deceleration create a safer driving environment.

    Put another way, it responds more accurately to your driving inputs above and beyond its acceleration advantages.

    I find myself using the brake petal perhaps only 20% as often as I do when I drive my ice car.

  • Tesla Can Stop 'Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt' Regarding Demand - But Will It? [View article]
    You continue to evaluate Tesla like it's just another car.

    It clearly is not.

    It's has a unique collection of benefits that will transform how all cars are evaluated in the future.

    "What is pumping gas, Daddy?"

    It's just a matter of time. The runway maybe long, but the ultimate outcome should be easy to anticipate (at least if you own one).

  • Sorting Out The Tesla Model X Launch: When, How, And Who Are The Buyers? [View article]
    A strong summary of the distorted bearish view of Tesla's 2015.

    I look forward to reviewing its accuracy with the benefit of the passage of time.

    Strikes me as what a bear would call "wishful thinking".

  • Will Tesla Top The Whisper Number This Quarter? [View article]
    Not so bad Boxman22.... even with the negative surprise I am breakeven on the option position. Down on the stock of course like all long holders.

    Option position Break-even is 200 on the downside and 240 on the upside.

  • Will Tesla Top The Whisper Number This Quarter? [View article]
    If there ever was a company whose whisper number is more of yawn, I can't think of it.

    Disclosure: Short the 220 put and call combo due to expired on Friday for a $20 credit. Also long shares

  • U.S. January Sales Shock: GM's New Midsize Truck Outsold Tesla 7:1 [View article]
    Some day, some social psychology student will write a paper about how and why so many people got the Tesla story wrong, using the articles and comments from this and other Seeking Alpha pieces.

    I look forward to understanding how one shared reality can be perceived in such diametrically opposed ways.
    My guess... the human need to be right is stronger than the need to find truth.
