Being bipolar doesn't look like fun.

Once his meds kick in he'll likely reschedule that out a few decades.

He’s delusional if he thinks he’ll be beyond the reach of the SEC there.

Thanks, Minerals.

Good article. Shows how much Musk is above anybody else when it comes to vision and innovation.

Look out, Elon, here comes Audi's E-Tron GT, which will share a platform and 60% of parts with Porsche Taycan. Basically an A7, 590 HP, 0-60 in 3.5, 250 mi range, and can charge 80% in 20 minutes!

So in other words - look out! AUDI plans to bring out a car that isn't as good as a Tesla was 4 years ago. I mean, that was the point of Tesla, but I would hope by now that there would be cars that are better than Tesla in some way. I can add just as many miles on my x as this A7 theoretically can in the same 20 min. What is the point of adding 80% of 65 in 20 min when you can add 85% of 100 in 25?

Elon is still looking out, as are the rest of us including Porsche. Not seeing much on the roads though. -10C with snow on the roads up here and I'm still getting sub 5s 0-60 on the X. It drives better in snow with summers than my Toyota/Subaru do with Hak R3's. Just got a software update, again, and the Rivan truck plans to have an off-road feature, turning right wheels forward, left wheels back, you can turn on a dime.

What Tesla did is ‘truly astonishing’, says Porsche

As Porsche is trying to bring to market its first all-electric vehicle, they look admiringly at Tesla’s success, which they see as “astonishing” when it comes to volume and pricing.


Porsche’s North America Chief Executive Klaus Zellmer made the comment in an interview with the Los Angeles Times:

“If you look at what Tesla has done, if you look at their volume and look at their price level, it’s truly astonishing.

If you can do that with one brand and a sales network that is not comprised of dealers and a real sales organization, it’s even more astonishing.”

Minerals Good article... I've toured the Giga plant.. its truly an amazing vision of the future of manufacturing. For comparison I been to the Boeing Plant, Ford's Steel mills back in the day, and one Ford's Detroit Auto plants. This is definitely the next step.

Elon Musk: "People should not ascribe to malice that which can easily be explained by stupidity." (LAUGHTER) So-- so it's, like, just because I'm, like, dumb at-- at predicting dates does not mean I am untruthful. I don't know-- I-- we've-- I never made a mass-produced car. How am I supposed to know with precision when it's gonna get done?

Elon Musk: The whole point of Tesla is to accelerate the advent of electric vehicles. And sustainable transport and trying to help the environment. We think it's the most serious problem that humanity faces. I'm not sure if you know it, but we open sourced our patents, so anyone who wants to use our patents can use 'em for free.

Thanks for this quote, which can be used to explain so much in our modern world.

40,00 km on my X so I take it into the shop since, shouldn’t cars usually go in every 6,00 for an oil change or something? Tesla mechanic says, here, let me check it on the computer while I fill up your tank for free and give you some free winter wiper blades. Good to go! $0.

What heats up faster, the engine in your car and the air vents or your blow drier? Yup. Electric cars are much more comfortable up here in Northern BC winters than gas. And hella cheaper. I just figured out that my Toyota truck will cost me $54k in depreciation, maintenance and fuel for the first 50,000 miles. My X is $26k. CAD. The model3 is going to be cheaper than a Toyota Corolla.

Oh, and I backed into something with my X and pushed the back of the car in. Tore the bumper plastic open and wrecked the reflectors. They send a guy in a mobile Tesla van who replaces it on site for $300.
