Tesla charging stations at local mall

  • That’s about what a new S costs

    No, loaded out even with Ludacris (balls to the walls 20% faster) mode ($20K option) your looking at right around $125,000.


    "bare bones" you can get one for around $85,000.

    I've seen a 200 plus price tag.

    Hmmmm.... Who knows why.

    There's 125 there abouts all over here.

    Used can be 55 to 70

  • The roadster is 200k+

    The roadster isn't even available yet. Unless you want an old one.

    But Musk claims when it is released, it will dominate any fuel powered vehicle in every category. So I guess in that aspect, 200k wouldn't be that horrible.

  • Time for a quick necro thread 3 months later.


    Tesla is now structurally bankrupt, losing $7k per car built and sold. The Alien Dreadnaught pumped full of nitrogen because the robots are so fast, is just a tent in a parking lot. Depreciation has hit over 40% in 3 months (now worse than Masarati. should not even be possible). S & X sales are tanking and there is no refresh coming. Model S is subject to ongoing lemon lawsuits from screen yellowing because in a "luxury vehicle" they used a laptop screen that does not meet automotive spec. A Leaf beat an S in a 14 lap race because the S/X is an old design motor design that overheats. The Leaf & 3 use the same type of motor.


    Model 3 demand was pulled forward, still posted a loss for Q2, and Q3 sales are very, very bad. A Leaf beat an S in a 14 lap race because the S/X is an old design motor design that overheats. The Leaf & 3 use the same type of motor. Capex guidance is now below depreciation. Service and parts backlogs are well over 3 months in many places. The paint quality on Model 3 along with fit and finish is worst in class. Cars shipped to ice countries that salt roads are rapidly falling apart from corrosion. Now the pivot is to Full Self Driving while claiming all Teslas are really $250,000 appreciating assets, not just regular cars (the used car market says he's full of shit). In the meantime, that is slamming people into fire trucks, tow trucks, and has a stunning death toll for how few Teslas are actually on the road.


    The only question that remains is will outside capital keep bailing them out now that the unlimited demand narrative has collapsed and executive turnover is 4x higher than every other corporation (and those make money). The Taycan is almost on the market and has sustained performance that blows away Teslas on a track and vastly superior luxury car tech at similar price points. E-Tron sales are on pace to rapidly outpace the X. A 400 mile range Escalade is coming. An electric F-150 is coming.

  • I'll respond to most of this later (I know you want me to) but do you have any links about these cars "falling apart" and the "stunning death tolls"?


    Also, don't hold your breath on the 400 mile escalade. GM isn't even close, Ford just dumped 1/2 a billion into another EV manufacturer so they'll get there first.


    And a quick non googled thought on the leaf beating the S model. My guess would be that they put the S in Ludacris mode (which is meant for short stints) and overheated on purpose. Probably a tortes and the hair scenario.

  • You can have at it. I'm still waiting on The Great Disruption of manufacturing. Turns out Kanban is a better way to make cars than Alien Dreadnaught.

    You can follow the Tesla forums. Service is in the toilet. Quality is in the toilet.


    Killing people left & right is a little hyperbole. The official death count is 76 so far, 6 suspected AP, 4 of those confirmed. Tesla doesn't release data. That granular data is what drives their non-exist insurance offering.


    The S uses an older style motor they simply can't manage the heat. Not a ludacris mode issue. They optimize for 0-60 across the throttle map, far from ideal on a track but the fanbois love it.


    Stock now at 220 3 hours ago, -14.32 today. There are 3 Qs when Tesla turned a profit. One was from environmental credits awarded for the idea of the battery swap program that was never implemented and only existed as vaporware. The other 2 Qs were the quarters where the legal and financial teams quit. Incoming $TSLAQ without another bailout.

  • Ok, this was easy. The race in question featured an OLDER S model and a MODIFIED leaf. And it is not known but assumed that the S model's battery overheated.


    And you didn't mention that the S model was the previous years champion in the EV race.


    Quit cherry picking...



    "The particular race showcased in the video is between an older Tesla Model S and a new, modified Nissan LEAF PLUS. As expected, the Tesla takes a massive lead early on. However, it doesn't increase the lead by much as the race wears on. Instead, that lead remains pretty consistent throughout most of the laps."

    OSLO (Reuters) - Norway’s first battery-powered aircraft crash-landed on a lake on Wednesday, in a setback for the country’s aviation strategy, although police said the pilot and passenger both escaped unhurt.
