  1. Why General Motors Is Crushing Tesla in 2021

    The "Fool" is just a stock advising outfit with many different contributors. Some of their articles this year were even advising 'buy/hold' this year even when TSLA was around 800/850. And I think most of the Cramer/Fool/et al are just piling on TSLA since the stock has dropped to around...
  2. Hoping for a Cybertruck update June 10

    I'm really hoping for an update on the CT, but surprised so few are looking at Semi. They've had multiple prototypes out for testing and talked about starting production this year also. But Tesla has a good problem. They have CT, Roadster, Semi and Model 2? in the pipeline and Everybody wants...
  3. Cybertruck UI Patent Shows Off Cool Details & Features, Including Camp Kitchen! 🍽

    Interesting the different takes from the different media sites. Teslarati was big on the 610 mile range and never mentioned a stove. But it does sound like they are teasing a LOT of different possibilities with the CT. The eye tracking part for adjusting the mirror would be nice, but also...
  4. A More Useful Frunk

    Ford did put out a few specs with their Lighning, but I have yet to see the Cd for it. But then that has never really mattered to most of the demographics of their customers.
  5. CT Trips!

    Here is a speed limit map for the US: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speed_limits_in_the_United_States Note that until you get to North Dakota, the states have a 70 mph speed limit max. The other problem I would think you'd have trying a trip like that would be the construction season in the...
  6. Mustang Mach-E Real World Range (Big problem)

    Also noticed the pic with the 114 mile range with 75% battery was in a snow filled lot. Even Tesla drivers have to adjust for cold weather. Would like to see what the temp was on the 127 mile range with 93% battery tho. And if the sellers thought they could make money reselling a new MachE with...
  7. GM announces the Chevy Silverado EV: 400 miles of range with Ultium battery techCHEVROLET CONFIRMS THE FIRST-EVER ELECTRIC SILVERADO FULL-SIZE TRUCK

    Oh, but what a wonderful nameplate with the "e" highlighted. They say that the Hummer will start production this fall, but won't give a time frame for the Chevy pickup. Definitely not a Ford fan, but at least they are working to get the F-150 EV out this year or early next year. And really find...
  8. Cybertruck Production Earlier Than Expected? Pilot line being built @ Fremont

    I'm still in the "This isn't going to ramp up to 200k yearly production soon". Tesla also wants to build the Semi and hasn't done so because it doesn't have the batteries. Yes, Texas will build 4680s, but it still needs the materials for the ramp up of MY in Texas and the Semi and the CT. There...
  9. Cybertruck dashboard, wasted space?

    There is an aftermarket HUD that is available for the M3 and MY. Was really hoping that Tesla would have that as an option. Did find out the Elon does not like or want them. Guessing he is in full "FSD is almost here" mode and any distractions are just that.
  10. Cybertruck-Making it uniquely yours.

    Not using mine for a business but thinking I might put a wrap on the doors. Even with using FSD, I'd like to know which CT is mine in a parking lot filled with them in the future!
  11. Morgan Stanley: Tesla losing market share to Ford Mustang Mach-E

    Don't know if they should get too excited about Ford sales. I'm guessing the Ford numbers are for Mach E sales and not deliveries. https://insideevs.com/news/491806/mustang-mache-delays-1000-off-free-charging/ Hoping Ford does get it sorted out tho. Every BEV sale is one less ICE sale.
  12. Tesla Please Do This

    I agree with OCS12. But to me it is more the big picture. Tesla has had to be very smart on how they use their capital. And I'd rather they spend every spare dime on more charging stations, service centers, gigafactories, battery production and engineering than spend a dime on marketing. A great...
  13. Cybertruck Horn

    First thoughts are either a)Elmer Fudd doing "Fire" or b)Iron Butterfly's "I am the god of Hellfire". But I do wish that Tesla would have separate settings for sounds of the horn and the pedestrian warning sound. The wife said she would like Cookie Monster doing "Om Nom Nom".
  14. Who's planning on a Cybertruck factory pickup / delivery

    Had a friend in NC when we lived there. He was expat British and had a friend from England that though it would be a great idea to rent a huge SUV in Atlanta and drive to Boston like an American. He made it to North Carolina and bought an airline ticket to Boston. Most Europeans hove NO idea at...
  15. CyberTruck Insurance Cost

    Yeah, can't wait for them to expand their coverage past Cali. Imagine an insurance company that doesn't spent a bunch of money on advertising and making sure they are as profitable as possible(within state regs).
  16. Earliest Cybertrucks may get federal tax credit (400k more Teslas will qualify under GREEN Act)

    Doubt my CT reservation will qualify with the spot I have, but once it's passed I'll put an order on for a Model Y. With the number of new orders they'll have once a tax credit is passed, I don't think there will be many CT orders that qualify. Still think they should eliminate the manufacturer...
  17. EV Tax Incentive [closed due to political discussions]

    The incentives when they were introduced tried to do 2 things. 1) Encourage buyers with a tax discount to help adoption. 2) Incentivize manufacturers to build EV/hybrid vehicles with a bigger market possibility. I don't see the manufacturers incentive as a good carrot anymore. With Tesla/VW and...
  18. New 4680 Battery Cell Factory in Raleigh North Carolina

    So when they say "Tesla Energy", I'm guessing that the production will be earmarked for the Powerwalls and Megapacks. Don't recall that any of the Battery Day presentation discussed how the 4680 cells would benefit the Powerwall and Megapack batteries, but more density and faster charging and...
  19. You get one question answered

    I guess mine is more of a show and tell. Lets see you repeat the 'hammer the door and throw a steel ball at the window'. I'm sure they fixed it, but the PR from doing that would maybe get more sales. Would also like to see them back up the 'It will float for a short time'. Ice fishers in the...
  20. Apple iCar -- Your Thoughs?

    I'm not concerned about Apple getting into the car business either. They could buy a car company with the cash they have for the manufacturing assets and vendors needed. But it would be a long time to break even much less make any money for the next decade. I'm more interested in the BEV...
