Ahh, that's fortunate. Lucky, even!
Would you pay $80K for the dual-motor Cybertruck? Or $100K+ for the Cyberbeast? Which trim did you order?
Do you think Tesla would lower its prices once the demand dies down? Do you think the demand will die down after a few years? I like your take on...
Bravo! Especially if you wrote that yourself. This makes sense from a financial perspective and the gist of it is that us reservation holders are unlikely to get ours until late 2024.
When do you expect yours?
I'd buy it as soon as I'm able to. Given that I'm in Canada, and have a rather late reservation, I don't think I will get mine until 2025 at the earliest.
Will the prices be low by then? I doubt it. I don't think the prices decline until 2026.
With the Model S, the Plaid version made sense because you can actually feel the difference in both acceleration plus torque-vectoring when you're taking corners hard.
I wonder what difference an average driver (like me) would experience b/w the Dual Motor and the BeastMode Cybertruck. I'm now...
Telsa is thinking of maximizing its profits and not leaving money on the table.
Even at this price, there will be more than enough buyers to have every single Cybertruck sell out for the first year. If the demand isn't that high come second year, there is a very strong possibility of Tesla...
There were enough hints dropped by a few folks that the range wouldn't be that high, so I'm not surprised about the 300+ mile range.
What i am shocked about is the insane price increase. Like WTF?!
I mean I will still likely get the tri-motor Beast version but $100K USD is a hard pill to...
There are also so many unknowns here: was he on road tires or all-terrain tires?
I usually leave mine in % only but if I switch to miles then I have the option to display rated based on EPA and rated based on past driving. What if his is switched to rated range based on recent...
Exactly. If Tesla does wish to sell 250K+ units per year, the average price has to be in the $50K range with a compelling spec sheet (read: 350+ mile range) to be competitive with ICE pickups.
Some folks here are comparing the Cybertruck with Rivian/Lightning, etc. But that isn't Tesla's...
You really are a wealth of knowledge. Thank you for yet another amazing post! You called it: most investors can't even beat a plain vanilla index fund. The easiest and surest path to wealth is to buy & hold, control your costs (of investments), stay out of debt, and live within your means.
He made the right call about Enron and came out very well. That right call made him think that he can again figure out which other companies are "fraudulent" and of all the companies that he could be suspicious of, he chose Tesla. Well we all know how that turned out.
Never bet against Elon.
Tesla has said that they expect to make ~250K units per year once fully ramped up. That could be b/w 2 and 3 years from now.
Even if Tesla makes 25% gross margins on the Cybertruck (which I don't think they will but let's just give them that), the pure gross profits will be small as compared...
You really have no idea, do you?
Compare gross profit margins for those that produce EVs. How many EVs does Toyota produce?
The biggest thing that you fail to see is that Tesla isn't just an automotive company. You are way out of depth here when it comes to TSLA and it shows.
There are 3 very important points that you have missed:
1) When Tesla was losing money on each vehicle sold (2012 to 2019), the reasoning went something like this: legacy has decades worth of experience and it is so easy to switch to EVs and when the legacy automakers decide to do that, Tesla...
I had a similar question. While Canada is only 1/10 the population of its big brother south of the border, we only really have 6 major cities (unlike dozens in the States): Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, and Ottawa.
Each of these 6 major hubs have population of 1M+...
I think people don't like it when you come across as a) argumentative simply for the sake of it, and b) talking about this as if it's be-all and end-all.
Just my two cents. Canadian ones so they are worth less. :p
I obviously failed to understand your posts and I bet others did the same...
It appears that we are all aligned and talking about the same thing. LOL.
However, from your posts, it appeared that you were comfortable with the scalping, and that's why you got the comments that you did.
I don't think you want scalpers but maybe I misunderstood your posts?
At the end of...
