  • Tesla: Is The 'Bubble' About To Burst? Shorts Will Finally Be Rewarded [View article]
    "The creaking sunroof seems like a new "find"."

    Old article, older car, nothing new at all. Keep trying.

  • Tesla: The Short Of The Decade? [View article]
    "BMW released two new EV designs in two years ..."

    No they didn't, the released the i3 EV. The i8 is a hybrid, with less electric range than the Volt, so nothing all that innovative there. The i3 is at best the next step up from a LEAF, unless you need the extra seating and room the LEAF provides.

  • Tesla's China Dreams May Be In Trouble [View article]
    "After 24 months, real car makers refresh the design and repeat the 0 to full-out again."

    After 2 years of a design almost nothing is changed in most cars other than a couple of minor cosmetic bits. Tesla has been making changes and improvements to the Model S all along where it counts, and will continue to do so.

    Tesla is off the charts. Interpret as you will.

    Well yes tom with people like you reporting almost every post that disagrees with them. It's no coincidence that most of my censored posts were ones responding to you. And no tom, I'm not any harder on you than anyone else.

    No, actually you are the one making things up, as usual. Most of us are aware of a number of different renewable technologies will be available to charge EV's. Tesla and Elon are betting mostly on solar.

    Tesla already has the lowest cost per kWh, no reason to think that won't continue as they move forward with even more improvements from where they are now. The others can't play catch up while Tesla is still moving forward.

    "I agree we should be skeptical of Musk's claim that TslaM can "easily" reduce costs by 30%."

    Why? Another three years of standard annual improvements will get them most of the way there, and the GF will do the rest.

    Regarding Cobalt, they've already drastically reduced the amount of Cobalt in the cells compared to standard LiCo cells.

    Guess where Tesla is with electrics? That would be out in front.

    "This seems like a good place to point out that now VW/Audi, GM, Ford, Hyundai, Kia, Renault & Volvo will all have access to a 200-mile battery in 2016, two years before Tesla can realistically have a Model 3 in production..."

    Yes, and 4 years AFTER Tesla has already been producing a 265 mile EV. Wow, scary.

  • Tesla: The One Major Item That Concerns Me [View article]
    "How in the world is a cable going to make that much noise? That doesn't make a lick of sense."

    If you actually know something about EV design and construction it makes a lot of sense. That cable is likely heavy gauge copper with shielding, depending on it's length it can weigh a few pounds, and if it's loose banging against something it can and will cause noise, especially in a quiet electric car.

    As for the shim, of course there will be labor involved. Depending on the location it's probably a 1-2 hour job. Not a bid deal at all.

    "But why doesn't the company just speak plainly and honestly about these things?"

    Because it's self evident to anyone with a basic understanding of technology. If Tesla uses rare earth magnets in it's window motors or not is simply not relevant. We know the induction motor that drives the vehicle does not use rare earth magnets and we know the battery pack does not use rare earth elements, there is nothing else in the vehicle that would contain a significant amount of rare earth elements, so who cares? I know you want to try and make a huge deal out of it, but it isn't, and never will be. Try to harp on some other meaningless point in your desperate quest to find something wrong with the company and the stock.

    Except that's exactly what happened as Elon explained the the share holders meeting. At first they didn't realize the loose cable was a problem, so they'd pull a drive unit, replace it, and eventually the cable would vibrate loose again. Now they know that problem exists and have a simple fix for it. The gear shim is also an inexpensive fix.

    "That is EXACTLY what they did until 2 days ago. Until 2 days ago, they vehemently denied there was any problem whatsoever?"

    You mean when they clearly talked about the issues, what caused them, and what the fixes were, at the share holder meeting? I guess you mean the vehement denial you made up in your head.

    "I doubt they're gonna locate a lithium mine right next to the GF, either."

    Not too far away though http://bit.ly/xshuSc
