    This is far more entertaining, and informative, than the above article. Enjoy ;-)

  • Tesla Is Walking On Thin Ice Regarding Customer Trust [View article]
    To be clear, I always assumed the 70 was simply the result of filling in some of the empty space in the 60 pack with more cells. My point was that Dave's claim that Musk said "no progress" in energy density possible was false.

    A better car might, but we have yet to see one. It certainly won't be a hybrid.

  • Two Scenarios For Tesla's 2015 Unit Sales - 55K Vs. 39K [View article]
    Tesla is producing VINs in the low 80,000s now. And Molli is wiping the floor with your assumptions.

    Dave has been making that same claim for some time now, even after I pointed out what Musk actually said, as you did. Dave translates "moderate, small improvements" to "no progress", since that interpretation fits with his irrational anti Tesla anti Musk bias. I don't know if the 70D has more energy dense cells or not, but if it does that would be right in line with what Musk has said was possible, contrary to Dave's claims.

  • Tesla Motors fires up the Model S 70D [View news story]
    It's obvious that many uninformed bears don't take the time to do so, which is fine with me. Stay clueless, my friend.

    Some people want the latest and greatest at any cost, be it ICE or EV. Doesn't mean the vehicle they just sold or traded in is "obsolete". Cars are never obsolete as long as they can provide their intended function.

    "So those who have just bought the 60D"

    To be accurate, there was no 60D, just the plain 60. If I buy a 2wd ICE and then the company comes out with a 4wd version am I aggrieved at the lack of notice? Products improve over time, (or at least they should), that time is simply a bit shorter with an innovative company such as Tesla.

    "LT, It's not far fetched to think that a MS57 or MS57D is to come out at $10K lower sometime in July using the 188hp motor(s) just following the end of Q2. "

    It's completely far fetched, it won't happen. As I stated above the CPO program covers that market, and the car you propose would eventually be overshadowed by the Model 3. Plus the fact that the worst selling Tesla model was the 60. Don't know why you think a vehicle with even less range for only a few dollars less would sell better.

    " The 70D is a bit of an amphibian - it sits between two existing models 60/85..."

    Actually it replaces the 60, so it doesn't really sit between anything, it's now the base model. The 70D represents both the reality that the X base needed a larger pack to break 200 miles of range and the reality that the CPO program will be targeting the value seeking customer with pricing that made the 60 non competitive. A smart and necessary move by Tesla.

    Medical devices are already powered by lithium cells. The "future" you fear has been around for quite some time. Too bad, so sad.

    Only if they are complete morons. Tesla is an innovative company, they innovate all the time. None of their older products are obsolete, they still perform as well, or better, than when delivered, which is better than the majority of vehicles on the road. The only thing obsolete is the conventional auto manufacturing business model.
