RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

I thought everyone does this at I-5 at 2 am, lol.:BToo much traffic at 2A if you are in the city. Maybe in the valley or through Pendleton. Running more than 100 mph in the city is only for those being chased by highway patrol and help -- admittedly California's state past time. The raceway for 150 mph up is down Central Valley as soon as you come down from Grapevine through Tracy.:W

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Okay, let me see if I have this straight: They're comparing the Taycan Turbo S, a real live car vs a Lucid Air, an imaginary car, vs Model S Plaid, also an imaginary car. Seriously??!!Lucid is a stretch, however Plaid based on an existing platform is much closer to reality. And I agree any sub 12 second car is borderline dangerous on the street. 150+ mph seems unnecessary to me. The market for super high performance sport sedans has and always be there, albeit pretty small. And companies like Porsche, Tesla etc will continue to duke it out. Zero to 60 in 5 is actually pretty fast and will suit most. I don’t know about Lucid but I would think Plaid S will be on the shelves for Christmas. Just a guess. My son-in-law owned a Lambo Aventdor, his circle of high-performance car owners do really. obsess about this. Then my daughter arrives with her Tesla X and everyone shuts up.:R

RE: Your Fuel/Oil comments - please post here

Much of the difference is state tax. Gasoline is less expensive in Alaska and Hawaii. The Mexican national oil company PEMEX operates gas stations in Houston Texas under the PEMEX brand that sells fuel for a dollar fifty cents less than anywhere else in Mexico. The Pemex Shell Oil joint venture refinery in Deer Park, is adjacent to Houston. Might be too expensive for me to travel to Houston to fill up.:B My state and others in the West are taxing gas to obsolescence. They've been successful so far in. reducing pollution. and heart attacks. and cancer deaths. And here comes the fires and the smokes.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Having left my home 3 times in 4 years due to fires. You’ll have to excuse me for not thinking any of the Gigafactories are “ecological paradise” until they’re off grid with zero emission power. I do believe forest fires start due to very dry winters,no snow or rain,but when you have idiot in chief who dont believe in science and global warming youre fkd. And he is blamer-in-chief is faulting California for not sweeping the forest floor when most of the forests are federal lands. He should have sent Roomba for the clean up he wants.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

The time frame on the Semi has always been guidance from Tesla. Not me. You still cannot get that through your shell I see. I have always stated as my opinion, I would expect some delays. Now tell us about that BK that was filed last year due to the crushing debt you kept talking about. Or is Elon still in jail from the SEC complaint you and Ben kept talking about? Where are all your buddies from SA? Need to get some of that humor posted again. And if CEOs of companies who missed guidance and timelines, then all the jails will be full of CE OEOs. The final arbiter will be investors and stockholders who'll punish the stock price if they. lost confidence would not be able to pull it off. In the case of Tesla, it's the naysayers and short-sellers who got burned. So any of hecklers here don't mean squat unless you put your money where your mouth is.

RE: Cybertruck has 400 horses

Sam. I'm continuing to do research on the whole towing a trailer behind our TesLa. Just watched a video that confirms no Autopilot when trailer mode selected on a model X. Suspect it will be the same on the cybertruck. You can still select TACC (traffic aware cruise control) which is essentially autopilot without autosteer. In my mind this makes logical sense. Just a heads up. Cheers. Thanks. again @Reisende. Understood. Kind of logical for me too since it will be tons of programming work, and maybe extra sensor extension to the trailer, for FSD to include it in. the maneuvering. Just read possibility or estimated drop out rate for those who reserved the Cybertruck. So I. might get my unit on Production + Day 1, LOL.:p;) Woohoo. On the other hand it may force our decision earlier than we want. We’ll see. Looks like even earlier. Latest is Tesla is moving up production to May 2021.. That kicks it up a notch. Trying to beat ford and Rivian to market? Non-compete really if they can't meet and match Tesla's price point. True. And just a heads up. Last nights software update has a couple new things. Speed limit sign recognition on autopilot You get a reminder bing when you are sitting at a stoplight and it turns green. Warning tones if you are going to run a stop light or stop sign. A few other minor things security related. Software updates every two weeks now. Not sure what’s happening. Used to be about once per month. Cheers. Way cool! Still thinking whether it's worth the $7K, lol.

Ford is getting serious. Watch the video in the story. Holy carp. https://youtu.be/uyd6ONBV5V4 Elon says his 2020 Roadster will blow it's doors off in street trim. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50306716632_3f8c697e25_z.jpg LOL! HIs motivation for FSD. He can still be on the road while stoned.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

... Personally I don't think Tesla wants to get into the luxury sedan market but if they are on the fence, this would be the catalyst. Tesla buyers seem to like more spartan interiours and I'm not sure they would go for a luxury interiour. ... I've never been in a Tesla, or even looked closely at one, but... In my mind, I always classified Tesla as a "luxury sedan". I'm a bit surprised to hear that they are not? @Reisender -- I thought Tesla's Roadster is in the luxury category. No, I have not seen one on the road nor in mock up rendering. Interesting factoid: Teslla's first Roadster, most likely collector's item by now, is (was?) owned by Elon's friend whom he borrowed $50,000 to meet payroll and who wrote it off not believing that Musk's vision is viable and that he can pull off an electric vehicle of some practical everyday consumer use.

RE: Cybertruck has 400 horses

Tesla now has it's own forum. It must be from strong clamor. Tesla is notoriously slow in creating sub-top slots that it is said that they won't even create one on models that's already out in the market for sometime. Miracles do happen! Tesla new Cybertruck-dedicated forum Thanks for the link. One question relevant to us RVers is whether FSD in Cybertruck will. and can handle and respond accordingly to the driving. conditions of towing an RV. It’s a good question. Don’t know the answer. It might be beneficial to ask an owner of a model X or Y and ask them wether they are able to enable Autopilot and/or FSD when in tow mode. Here’s why. When in Autopilot and/or FSD the car makes automatic lane changes to go around slower traffic and keep at the speed you selected. It checks to see the lanes are clear and then makes the lane change. Once around the slower person it will move back into the right lane. Soooo, can the sensors see far enough back to compensate for the extra length of a trailer when towing? Don’t know. I’ll be talking to a model X owner next week. I’ll ask him. Let me know what you find out. Oh, and yah, it’s freaky the first time the car starts making lane changes on its own without asking. You kind of get used to it after awhile...kind of ....sort of... Thanks and I'll appreciate it. Wil help me decide whether to plunk that good money that may turn out to be useless as most of my Cybertruck use is in pulling the trailer. My reason for ordering one too. Nice touch on the last laugh lines. Made my day!:C:B

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

For giggles and grins go back about 500 pages In this thread, skip thru and look at all the bankwupt predictions, lots full of unsold cars and general cheerleading that if the stars came together Tesla would be bankrupt by 2017, I mean 2018, I mean 2019, ok maybe 2020, So many broken dreams. I guess they can hope for 2021. :). Hey, hey, hey, let them deliver my Cybertruck first.:E I'm glad none of them put their money where their mouth is -- like a lot of those short sellers that got burned, big time.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

In Sept 2018 Elon proclaimed GF1 would be off grid by Dec 2019. They have not even put up any additional solar panels. I just think that if I made that statement as well as the hardware to accomplish it, I’d step up to do it on a clean sheet design building. Especially since they all have large plots of land for expansion. Although I can’t say I followed your thought train in the above from what I can tell you are offering to step up and get it done. Elon is on twitter. Give him a shout and let him know you are ready to go. :). Economics people, economics. Tesla GF got a very good deal from Nevada Energy that it's cheaper for them to draw from it than have a cash out and later depreciation cost that will hit their profit. and loss. And yes, I am against all corporate welfare and subsidies. Why the heck is the oil industry still. getting billions in tax breaks? We can start with that!

Tesla’s soaring stock pushes the company’s market value past Walmart’s https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50249128056_c1f978ea2c_z.jpg Every analyst is saying this is overbought and unsustainable. But it keeps going up, lol.
