I mean, like generally, I don't ask out strangers on the internet, also covid times and all that.

On a slightly more serious note, it was a question to the forum community, albeit presented lightheartedly; the thread is loaded with posts primarily from one person, and it's not a build thread. We have dealers/salespeople on here with a vested interest in promoting the brand, I was wondering if the same thing is going on with him.

Yes. I've block Tom Doll's person salesman/spokesman. His content to bull**** ratio is way too low.

And I thought I was supposed to be the snowflake

It seems that the Model S Plaid is testing at the NŁrburgring and they crashed. I hope they have backups because I really want to see how it compares against the Taycan:

Even if that person is the only one providing up to the second relevant news about a particular manu?

I'll mute the irrational hate crowd before I mute the source. Which is to say I mute zero people ever here.

And the current microchip situation doesn't help. The Lucid Air is late, the Rivian truck is late, Ford and GM halting production and Ford with a 33% of sales decline according to them do to the microchip shortage. My dad needs a truck now and he might have to go ICE, he was hoping to get the Cybertruck early next year.

Chris is local to me and I have seen race before. It seems that he has and order for the Plaid.

No, it was just news. Last I checked, this is the news and rumors thread. Calm down Francis.

The Plaid might be too quick:

At least no fire but I think we are going to see lots of news regarding the Plaid crashing etc.

You thought mustang crashes at cars and coffee was bad. Just wait until the idiots start plowing people over in their new plaid.

Odd flash back... At least this is nothing like the fool who slammed his wrx into a house, bragged about it in off topic, and was hammered by the sub crazy world that is off topic.

Back on topic. That is a crazy tiny neighborhood. how could this fool not notice his speed or location, unless he was on recreational drugs or drunk...

It seems like the owner was in the passenger side and died. He probably let some friend drive and he miss judged the speed .

I hope to be a lucky victim. No greater honor could one hope to have than to sacrifice themselves to Lord Tesla!

It's only fair. Both GM and Ford have been talking **** forever now. They invested in Nikola, I mean let's not forget that brilliance lmao.

Have you seen the fiasco that is the Mache E?

https://www.macheforum.com/site/thre...0-02-mph.9031/

Pastrana killed it at Goodwood while the Mach E 1400 stunk up the joint.
