Looks like a pick up raped a DeLorean in Alabama and the DeLorean couldn't afford to leave the state for an abortion.

I watched the Throttle House and Motor Trend reviews. They were not favorable. It was designed with form over function. So they wanted it to look the way it does first and foremost, and being a truck was not even 2nd on the list. Bad blind spots, some extremely questionable design choices among other things. But the overwhelming majority of people that will spend that 100k, well itíll be an image/status vehicle and wonít do anything truck like. Itís tow season for me so all it does it make me

Most trucks don't do anything truck like. They'll sell every one they can make.

See how dumb your statement is? 9/10 911 Porsche I see are putting around. No different with trucks (or Ferraris, Lamborghini, etc)

The biggest truck market is in California . This year the Cybertruck will outsell the Rivian R1T and the Ford Lighting F-150 combined .

It is just a matter of time. No one else has the amount of data that Tesla has or the compute:

Fake news. People should be in jail for it, but nothing will happen.

At this point, itís just as likely to be real as it is fake. Can you prove them wrong? Seems like they have more persuasive info that itís accurate than people disproving it except Elon saying fake news. Which, letís be honest. How credibility for truthfulness and accuracy isnít exactly great.

Yeah if you believe all the fake news articles past, then you think there's a problem here. But if you actually open your eyes and look you'll find Elon's statements remarkable accurate, bordering on prescient. Dude gets 8/10 things right and the other 2 things are late. But we can already tell, you believe all the lies. No wonder you don't like Tesla or Elon.

What Reuters did today was criminal. But you'll forget about this and when the next gen platform and robotaxi's are driving around in 2026 you'll be onto the next Reuters article on how Elon is cancelling Optimus to focus full time on AI Tamogochi's.

Let's be clear about what Reuters did today. The made up a story about Tesla cancelling their next-gen platform which is supposed to power the next growth phase of the company - in the middle of market hours. Then for the next 2-3 hours they kept updating that article saying how much they dropped the stock price following all the way down to -6% and back. It was a boasting of the crime they had committed. 15 minutes into this debacle the CEO tweeted that this was a lie, and that did not stop them.

If the SEC had any balls, there would be people in jail.

8/10 correct? Are ****ing high? Heís never hit anytime on a new model release, ever. Heís promised full autonomous driving how many times and remind me how close it is? Oh right, no where close.

Did the person from Reuters who published the article short the stock or benefit financially? If the answer is no, then thereís absolutely 0 reason for the SEC to file criminal charges. But youíll be sure to hand wave Elons repeated broken promises in which he has direct financial benefit from by being a massive share holder and being reward with stock should the stock hit certain price targets.


Pot meet kettle.

you mean like this:
Elon Muskís xAI poaches another engineer from Tesla in a clear conflict of interest
https://electrek.co/2024/04/03/elon-...t-of-interest/
Ya know, cause he didn't get his 25% handed over, so....
Quote:
He warned that without this level of control, he would ďprefer to build products outside of TeslaĒ, presumably at the new xAI, which many saw as a clear conflict of interest by publicly admitting that he would focus AI efforts outside of Tesla.
and before yas go all "fake newz" your prophet ADMITTED he moved the top tesla AI engineer over to xAI.... and if you believe he was going to OpenAI, well
Quote:
Last month, Tesla machine-learning scientist Ethan Knight became the fourth Tesla engineer to leave the car company for xAI, the startupís website shows. At Tesla, Knight had overseen the team working on computer vision for Teslaís self-driving technology, according to a former employee. His departure follows those of engineers who worked at Tesla on supercomputing, Autopilot and artificial intelligence infrastructure and who have joined xAI in the past 12 months.
Quote:
"Ethan was going to join OpenAI, so it was either xAI or them," Musk wrote. "They have been aggressively recruiting Tesla engineers with massive compensation offers and have unfortunately been successful in a few cases."

If he purposely BRICKED your car for 6 months you'd thank him for saving you wear & tear...

*Spends time on google*

Um yeah, there's absolutely dick nothing showing Reuters published an intentionally flaw article (or non intentionally). At worst, Reuters mislead by saying "canceled" instead of "indefinitely postponed."

"This is criminal, get the SEC involved to press criminal charges."

*Later that day.."

Elon: "Robotaxi unveil 8/8!"

*Stock goes back up."


But I'm sure you all are going to say this is coincidence and it was already planned and not some off the cuff knee jerk response.

The hypocrisy runs deep.
