  1. Report: Vaporware Tesla Cybertruck Deliveries Delayed Until 2023

    Great! I am just waiting for some short sellers to offer up discounted Tesla stock! I'll buy it!
  2. Nissan joins UN-backed ‘Race to Zero’ campaign, aiming for 100% EVs by… ‘the early 2030s’

    I know we are both Oregon residents, but there are many areas in Oregon, mine specifically, where workers live in surrounding areas and commute far beyond 20 miles in one direction. Yet, the infrastructure in my area is minuscule and sparely available, especially if commuting from smaller towns...
  3. Nissan joins UN-backed ‘Race to Zero’ campaign, aiming for 100% EVs by… ‘the early 2030s’

    This goes to my point. Sure, those mindful of the benefits will stretch to the leaf while the supplies last. But for the complete transition, BEV has to be affordable and have some residual longevity for the resale market to be effective. I trust that Tesla will fill the niche eventually in...
  4. Plaid kind of boring

    YES! Yes it certainly is!
  5. Nissan joins UN-backed ‘Race to Zero’ campaign, aiming for 100% EVs by… ‘the early 2030s’

    IMHO these claims from manufacturers are a joke. The consumers are going to drive the move to EV. The wealthy have the cash but they still only drive one at a time. When someone who works for minimum wage can afford an EV we will see a move to ALL electric vehicles. Until the poor masses can...
  6. Plaid kind of boring

    I agree with you as a driver! However, as a motorhead, the attraction to I.C.E. is visceral. It isn't necessarily the sound to the ears as it is the sound to our sense of touch. The feeling of a powerful combustion engine is in the bones and the muscles and it is titillating. With this said...
  7. Plaid kind of boring

    My solution to your observation is get yourself a toy. My wife and I have a model 3 and I am in queue for a Cybertruck, but I have a 1966 Ford Galaxie that I am building with the intent of driving for fun and the pride of the build. I wouldn't suggest taking on such a massive project, but I...
  8. Pack level specific energy density vs cell level

    Maybe this is a foul, but I will ask a question to answer your question. The energy in the pack must be managed to be useful, so wouldn't this dictate the size of the battery pack? Years back, Tesla had to invent a new way to handle the power of the 100KW battery pack because until then the...
  9. Update from Elon: Cybertruck production starting late 2022 and volume production in 2023

    We have a model 3 and the same situation. Erika will allow me to drive the Tesla occasionally IF she doesn't plan on using it. However, I will be selling the trucks and keeping both the Teslas.
  10. Update from Elon: Cybertruck production starting late 2022 and volume production in 2023

    I am disappointed. I have always bought old and broken and rebuilt and repaired because I had to. This cybertruck is my first new purchase for myself, not my family, kids, or wife, just because of my want. As such, I have been anticipating the day I sent the money to purchase my very own...
  11. A Unionized Tesla Workforce Could Benefit All Parties

    Thank you. I support unions, but this post bothered me for many of the reasons you clarified. I think stock is a good idea for the employees to have access to, but not in lieu of cash compensation. It seems that currently Tesla has an attractive compensation package, but to leave control over...
  12. Any other pickups considered before reserving your CT?

    Considering? Not really. I have two trucks that I will keep repairing until the CT becomes available. The F250 is easily as strong as most trucks on the road, and equivalent fuel economy to the current 15mpg of modern trucks, and the Dakota is comfortable on the freeway with a bit better fuel...
  13. Texas accessories for Cybertruck

    Buy a medium to large 3D printer and make your own yoke adapter. I'm sure Tinkercad would love to host a clip on adapter.
  14. Starlink IPO

    The irony/absurdity of a hood scoop on an electric vehicle just makes me giggle! I want to see this done.
  15. Sandy's rant. lol. I love this man.

    The point you make about the emergency vehicle collisions is valid. However, it is not what Monroe's point was about. Mr. Monroe is upset about the focus on Tesla being at fault when everything about these collisions, fires, and deaths are driver related, not the technology. Every last one of...
