    Elon explains why Cybertruck not out yet... battery cell production is limiting factor

    In yesterday's earnings call I heard Elon answer a question about new products coming out. He was talking about new products that they haven't even revealed. But it really fits with why they didn't start production on the Cybertruck or any other new products over the last year or more. It's in...

    Overloaded Dodge Ram snapped in half

    I saw this photo and just had to share it with the group. This is what happens when you put massive amounts of weight cantilevered off the back of a vehicle. My guess is that bike rack with 2 heavy Ebikes hanging off the back, is the straw that broke the camel's back. The lesson I get from this...

    Cybertruck will be EASY to keep clean!

    I keep hearing mid-gate naysayers who complain that a mid-gate or even a back window that that goes down will be bad because all the crap in the bed will blow inside the truck. This made me think about how easy the Cybertruck will be to keep clean. It is quite a unique truck, in that it will...

    Is this a look into the future?

    Interesting article on Electrek about Tesla powerwalls working together as a Virtual Power Plant during a brownout in California. I look at this and imagine how EV batteries could actually help the grid, instead of be a major problem for the grid. Our EV's could have way more energy storage than...

    Elon's comment about going back to his home planet yesterday

    Did you folks see Elon talk about going back to his home planet? Here's an article if you missed it. I'm wondering if this had something to do with today's price cut for TSLA.

    Will Tesla go up to $700 or go down to $600, this week?

    TSLA closed to $650.28 on Friday at close. So basically it's right in the middle. So here we are on Sunday night, and I thought it might be interesting to have a discussion on which direction people think TSLA will go first. Will it get to $700, or $600 first? My best guess is that with the big...

    How GM sold Amerca to become China Motors

    I've been seeing lots of threads that talk about GM and their EV plans. I wanted to post this video series, but felt this deserves its own Thread. GM over the years has made some bizarre choices that they are paying dearly for. This series of videos are enlightening!

    Todd the Cybertruckguy interview

    A little over an hour long, but lots of really good information, instead of all the FUD. I always like Todd. One of the reasons is because he does a very good job of discussing what is known, and avoids getting into rumors.

    Tesla Megapack in Oxnard

    Tesla posted a video today about the new Megapack in Oxnard. I live near the power plant they decommissioned, and a lot of people really fought installing a new Peaker plant. It was very exciting to see the future is looking brighter. BTW, I found it on Google Earth and there's a pretty...

    elon musk phineas and ferb

    With Elon's new haircut, it's obvious there's some kind of connection. BTW Phineas and Ferb are rocket scientists, and they sent their moms station wagon into space way back in 2008. You think Elon may have picked up on that idea of sending a car into space? With a little green hair dye Elon...

    It's 12/9 now what?

    Nobody has said anything, so I decided to start a conversation. The Tesla stock is taking a pretty good hit at this point, and Barron's says it's because people were anticipating a split or big news. Thoughts? Personally, I hadn't put much anticipation and was in wait and see mode. Kinda like...

    The quad motor / Plaid Cybertruck first makes sense

    Tesla/ Elon's announcement of a new higher priced version of the Cybertruck makes perfect sense. It's the same thing Lucid, Rivian, and even GM with the Hummer are doing. They all know when you first go into production you don't have the skills and knowledge, so come out with the highest profit...

    GIGA TEXAS size is ??

    I'm a retired construction worker and do graphics as a hobby. It amazes me how quickly Giga Texas is being built. I've had 35 years of being on job sites all over California, and nothing comes close to the scale and speed of this project. Lots of people on this Forum act like they are dragging...

    Did you notice the Cybertruck has built in steps?

    All the time I hear people say the Cybertruck with the slanted sails will make it imposible to reach into the bed from the side of the truck. I just noticed the black areas around the Cybertruck have built in Step points so you can access all around it and into the bed. Even to get to the...

    Tesla Please Do This

    Tesla doesn't do advertising and I agree with that. But, I really think they need to add videos like this, to their YouTube channel. KEEP THE STOKE!!!!!!!! I want a Cybertruck and I'm not interested in a Rivian. But Damn this video was SWEET!

    Elon says battery cell production is a constraint. (what about other companies)

    At the 4th quarter earnings meeting a couple days ago, Elon made a statement about Battery constraint holding Tesla back from making the Semi. “The main reason we’ve not accelerated new products is — like for example Tesla Semi — is that we simply don’t have enough cells for it. If we were to...

    Before you consider other EV's, consider this!

    After seeing the news that Ford was talking trash on Tesla today I did a little research. Ford brags about having FordPass charging network, so I thought Id do a comparison of Mach-E vs. Model Y on . So I set up a trip from Oxnard(my hometown) to Denver. These are just...
