    Tesla: A Justification For A $3T Company

    Apparently, I'm too much of an old-school internet user. From back when everything was free and all. I do try to keep their embedded links intact. I also try to keep the author's credit. I'd like to find some middle ground where information was available AND authors were getting paid. Right now...

    Tesla: A Justification For A $3T Company

    I find it incredibly lazy when people only publish the link. Additionally, there have been a number of times when the link goes behind a paywall so even when I click it I cannot see the article. And often the link doesn't even have text related to the actual contents or title of the article...

    Hertz to buy 100,000 Teslas for rental

    I get the impression that there is very little chance the EV incentive will pass. Too many vested interests would get relatively little benefit compared to their Tesla competition. There is just no way they want that to happen.

    Hertz orders 100,000 Model 3 electric vehicles from Tesla

    So does Tesla stock go up again if another rental company makes a large purchase? I'm liking the stock trajectory over the last little while.

    My 2022 Cybertruck MSRP predictions. Are you sitting down?

    These trucks are not licensable though right? Nice cheap price but of limited use if it cannot be licensed.

    Cybertruck did NOT have windshield wipers & rear mirrors. What will it have INSTEAD?

    Instead of streaming a front camera, stream an episode of Friends or Sienfeld. Mass market TV is the sugar that lulls the populace into quiet serenity. If you are worried about driver angst, this method could be used to calm that angst. Of course, don't go overboard with a nature documentary the...

    ELECTREK: No other pickup could even attempt

    Possibly yes. In which case there would also be opportunity to have yet another price tier for quad-motor. But the original design already had crazy specs for the tri-motor. I’m no engineer but I do wonder what the added motor weight would take away in performance to get whatever the extra motor...

    My 2022 Cybertruck MSRP predictions. Are you sitting down?

    My thought is that you are thinking like a traditional auto manufacturer executive. From what I've seen, Tesla makes almost everything standard save a few performance-specific features. For CT that would be the number of motors, and Solar tonneau. Then there are some features that can be...

    🎥 New Cybertruck video showing (removable) side mirrors, rear wheel steering, turning radius!

    Or 30.5 miles if the 610-mile range is to be believed.

    🎥 New Cybertruck video showing (removable) side mirrors, rear wheel steering, turning radius!

    I love that estimation!! Anyone know what the Rivian turning radius is? I'm specifically thinking of this corner from Black Bear Pass:

    🎥 New Cybertruck video showing (removable) side mirrors, rear wheel steering, turning radius!

    So one alpha feature that didn't make it to beta is apparently the door handles. I'll be curious what other alpha features get cut.

    🎥 New Cybertruck video showing (removable) side mirrors, rear wheel steering, turning radius!

    I'd just turn on FSD for the tunnel drive. Trying to stay alert in a long tunnel is going to be way too difficult anyway. Just let the truck to the driving.

    🎥 New Cybertruck video showing (removable) side mirrors, rear wheel steering, turning radius!

    There's always gonna be a party in the back. What happens in the front is entirely at the user's discretion.

    🎥 New Cybertruck video showing (removable) side mirrors, rear wheel steering, turning radius!

    Nice euphemism. I wonder if moose or elk could just "go underneath". For that matter, I wonder if pedestrians just "go underneath". Maybe that is how Tesla is making the CT a safer alternative to other trucks.

    New Official Cybertruck Footage - Shot by Tesla in NYC & Gigafactory

    Nice video of the CT. Some of the footage would appear to have been shot back when we were seeing the original prototype at the Giga Texas plant a long while back. Some shots really did look like CGI. And I could imagine someone recording the video sereptitiously off some pad that was not...

    ELECTREK: No other pickup could even attempt

    I agree with you. As to the extreme expressed: Seems like they are saying that Rivian can successfully accomplish things that other trucks are not even capable of trying (successfully or as a failure). That is a REALLY high bar to hit. Not sure how one could reach that conclusion. Get the...

    ELECTREK: Tesla announces plans to triple the size of Supercharger network within 2 years

    This is good news. Just in time for the majority of Cybertrucks!! On the other hand, opening the network up to other makers means there will probably be a bit of competition for access even with the tripling of size. This whole EV revolution is starting to get really interesting.
