But yeah, tell the whole world how evil Tesla is with their steep discount... Please continue.

Personally I am sick of the Tesla drama and I wish I had sold all my stock earlier and right now I have to wait it out until their is a new bull market and stocks start to go up again to get out at a better price. I enjoy Tesla cars but Elon is really polarizing thanks to his big mouth. I don't watch news, I don't care about politics and I have worked for an EV company for many years and understand way before many that technology was superior and that it was going to be the future.
never thought I would see the day when your fanboi bone would break.

I have a clue for you. You were part of the Tesla Drama. At every article and turn. It is and always was just a car with good branding. Nothing more. Take away the brand and you just have a bunch of plastic and metal.

Just like

Interesting quote from the article:

"By 2026, North American EV demand will hit a level of about 2.8 million vehicles a year, said industry forecaster Warren Browne. But North American EV factories will be capable of assembling more than 4.5 million vehicles, putting overall capacity utilization at just under 60%."

A fun comparison.


For context: SuperfastMatt is an ex Tesla design engineer & prototype manager.

Word of another Tesla Semi that appears to be broken down on the side of the road is making the rounds on Twitter.

Since Tesla started delivering its long-awaited Class 8 electric truck to customers last month, several of the vehicles have been spotted on the side of the road, apparently broken down. One PepsiCo Tesla was seen getting towed by another truck.

The sightings have called into question the reliability of Tesla's new electric semi, which started production at the company's Nevada manufacturing facility in October after years of delays. The truck was originally supposed to start production in 2019.*

Yet another apparently stranded Tesla Semi was making the rounds on Twitter Thursday. The video, originally shared on TikTok, appears to be from earlier this month in Modesto, California.*

It's not an encouraging sign for investors already worried about the serious economic headwinds Tesla faces this year, but alarm bells aren't going off quite yet, said Wedbush analyst Dan Ives.

"These are not the images and sights you want to see," Ives said. "But no red flags yet. What will be important to see is how they handle it. Quality control is very important."

Tesla is known for working out kinks after its vehicles make it into customer's hands via over-the-air updates. But the company has had varying degrees of success with this strategy, and faces a federal probe into the self-driving software it updates that way.

Tesla first introduced a Class 8 prototype in 2017, initially setting a production date of December 2019. The program was led by former Daimler executive Jerome Guillen, who left the company in 2021. Following Guillen's departure and a series of supply chain issues, Tesla pushed back the start of Semi production to 2022.

The delays haven't stopped major companies from placing orders for the electric truck. Among the Tesla Semi's biggest pre-order names are Anheuser-Busch, Walmart, UPS, and PepsiCo, which was the first company to take deliveries in December.

Great Q4 for Tesla. This year the projected profit is more than what GM and Ford are projecting . It is amazing what this company has become after many thought it would fail. Now with $22B in earning 4-5% and no debt.

It seems that we will the the Cybertruck this year and we only have the Roadster to go.
