  • Tesla: It's Time To Impress [View article]
    "It is pretty weird that people who claim to be so interested in saving the planet, lowering the use of oil, preventing war, etc THEN turn around and chortle about 3.2 second 0-60 times."

    Actually it's not weird at all. Detractors have long tried to claim that EV's lack performance and are nothing more than glorified golf carts, and that moving to more sustainable transportation would entail great sacrifice. This is just another example of how completely wrong they are.

    The image of Tesla is in great shape, outside of the FUDsters on this board of course.

  • Tesla's New $120,000 Flagship Matches The $61,000 Dodge [View article]
    "Since we're discussing the stock, I'm not sure whether it's a positive that Tesla had to swap out so many drivetrains."

    And exactly how many drivetrains did Tesla swap out?

    fiwiki,

    "However, if operating your Tesla at those extremes for any extended period of time, you may want to pack an extension cord, as you definitely won't make the nearest SC station."

    By definition 0-60 times are not extended periods.

    Tom,

    I have gotten a greater volume of data from many more actual Tesla Model S owners than a few car mag test cars. If you aren't getting 200+ miles of range from your Model S you either didn't charge it fully, drove like a maniac, and/or are using the 60 kWh version.

    Tippy,

    "There is a very good explanation, and with some analysis, an obvious one as to why JRP3 knows all this, and a lot of arcane data on the industry."

    Tippy has found out that I'm secretly a wizard. I can admit that because I'll soon cast a spell on all of you to make you forget. However you will remember that my data is usually quite accurate....now you are getting sleepy....

    Frank,
    "I have yet to see anything except a sand model of what a Model 3 might look like."

    I suspect you mean the clay model that's been around for years, and is not the Model 3.

    As for the use of steel, I know that because along with my wizardry I also listen to what people from Tesla actually say.

    No, because none of what you claim has been proven by third party testing.

    I don't consider trying to change outdated and unconstitutional laws qualifies as "being a jerk".

    cparm,
    I'm afraid you've given us greater insight into your personality than your imagined Tesla owning population. The anger and vitriol is not flattering in the least.

    Anton, I've noticed you are completely ignoring the real world testing that shows the Dodge cannot meet the 0-60 times you claim, and upon which your entire article is based.

    Frank,
    As is often the case your assumptions are factually incorrect. We already know that the Model 3 will not use a fully aluminum body. Further, the ASP of the 3 will likely be higher than $40K since many will load it up with options, but that is of course irrelevant to the $35K price of the base model. It will be superior to a Prius in styling, comfort, safety, efficiency, performance, and actual cost of ownership over time.

    "they would have a great vehicle, outstanding sales and a good stock price."

    In case you hadn't noticed, they already have all of that.

    Apparently cparm considers Corvette to be a car company, among others. Come on cparm, raise your game.

    Let's recap:

    Cheaper product, don't know
    Longer battery life, don't need it
    More power stored, not much for the ones that actually provide data, no data for the others
    Faster recharge, check

    That's only one check, the least important one.

    What's wrong with your picture is comparing cars in different classes, and your apparent lack of awareness of the upcoming Tesla Model 3. You might want to research that one.

    The "Quant" has been around for years, it's nothing new, and it's probably not viable.

    "So how does the swap work with the debris shield?"

    The titanium shield is in front of the pack, not under it, so it should work just fine.
