    "Is your knowledge in physics larger than all those scientists/engineers who work in Toyota, GM, Honda, Hyundai?"

    No, but neither is my paycheck dependent upon pursuing the hydrogen fantasy. They get paid to work in their field, and apparently don't care that it's a dead end and a complete waste of resources.

    Don't forget to include the losses producing and transporting gasoline before it ever gets into your tank. Add that to the already inefficient ICE at around 20%.

    "By the way, why couldn't JRP3 provide this, or any other suitable, link ???"

    Because I'm having much more fun watching you all get so worked up and frustrated!!! ;-)

    Tom and Frank won't believe their own eyes, so it's probably a waste of time. Nice collection of videos anyway.

    "Where does the video clearly reveal the legroom and seating space with the 7 men IN the car? I claim NEVER. Prove me wrong."

    The video showing 7 adult men in the car already proved you wrong. Nothing else need be said, though I'm sure it will be.

    Z,

    "Sorry Hawkeye, but there were only two men in the back seat. The Model X seating, front to back, is: 2+3+2 = 7. Rewrite !!!"

    You are correct that the third row only had two people in it. I mistakenly thought that another one of the guys getting out of the passenger side was in the third row. My error.

  • Update: Tesla Earnings Highlight Spending Ramp-Up And A Time To Sell [View article]
    I'd say the people trying to pretend the three adult men in the third row weren't really in the third row, even though we all saw them, are the ones trying to pretend black is white. This whole discussion is a ridiculously pointless waste of time, and your delusions aren't going to move the stock price one cent.

    Bryce,
    Go to the forums and you'll find most of the tire issues are with the performance model. You'll also find that out of the 50,000+ cars on the road only a small handful are reporting the problem.

    Of course the reality is that probably 99% of all roof racks remain unused. Another reality is that if someone want's a roof rack on an X there are a number of ways to do it. Another non issue clung to by the anti Tesla crowd since they have nothing else to hang on to.

    Z,

    I don't care enough to spoon feed you items that can be easily found on your own. If you think Frank's was the only article on Steve Jobs or Elon Musk that's fine with me.

    Frank,
    You've reached a new level of denial. You can sit in a parked car with your leg out the door, which is exactly what Musk is doing. Try it today and see if you are actually sitting. If not, what position do you call that? His ass was in the seat, which is also called "sitting". Are you really trying to pretend that after three men got out of the back seat there wasn't enough room for Elon to pull in his other leg? The rear seat of the prototype Model X held three grown men. Elon sat down. End of story. This would be comical if it weren't so sad and pointless. As always when you and Tom cling to minutia it only brings further confidence to the longs, but your carrying on does become tiring. I only wish you could at some point find something actually worth discussing.

  • Axion Power's IPO Crash: An Opportunity To Buy? [View article]
    Tesla already "manages" thousands of cells in a pack, and multiple packs in backup and grid support installations. As I stated other companies have been running lithium in hybrid and electric trucks and buses for years, unlike Epower. You seem to think high C rates is something unique to PbC, it's not. As for temperature and cycle life, how about lithium satellite batteries? You don't get much more extreme than that.

    "The industry’s longest demonstrated cycle life for a large satellite cell based on capacity removed in each cycle, ideal for LEO applications requiring > 60,000 cycles and 15 year battery life
    Wide operating temperature chemistry for unique missions"

    http://bit.ly/11BYjym

    Obviously nothing I say is going to allow you to understand that the PbC is not unique or the only solution. I just think it's a poor investment strategy to ignore potential competition. Sure PbC can get cheaper, but will it be cheap enough to overcome it's limitations?

    1. Musk clearly stated they are constantly innovating beyond their patents.

    2. Tesla will have the largest cell factory on the planet and already has the lowest cell cost, not sure who you think is going to drive costs down further or faster.

    3. Physics will not allow the inefficiencies of hydrogen to succeed.

    Yup, trying to catch up to the new kid on the block who's been stealing their lunch.
