A bit off topic, but gotta mention this about our vets...

I was just out of high school and still in college (and the deferment that begot) when my city decided to honor the Vietnam Vets. 1967 and held a parade in downtown San Mateo. Made me cry and still puts tears in my eyes....lost too many buddies during those years

We are a small/medium town outside of SF. Grew up here and still living here


There was only ONE American City that honored them during the Vietnam War.

Buy SF Giants ball game tickets for them when the 101st are in town (and give them a few bucks for beer and a hotdog). A tradition with me that just have to do...

That is good news. Now people can purchase the knock off counterfeits that will be sold out the back door for half the price.

Tesla delivers a dud. Company growth story now in tatters

The cars are piling up like cord wood in a forest. Lots are overflowing with unwanted cars in the states.

Train should come into the station tomorrow. Get ready for a stock crash.

Cars are stuck in transit to Europe and China. A company ramping up in new markets apparently can easily confuse the number crunchers.

Norway? Really? Are they trying to impress someone.

A country that was overrun by Hitler in about 3 hours, using an army made up of two of Hermann Goering's drunken cousins and Eva Braun's Yorkie does not impress me much.



Hmm. I'm a retired Army vet. And on 2 occasions went to war for my country. Among many things it was an HONOR for me to serve along side with members of the Coalition forces. And NORWAY is part of the Coalition forces. Yes I served along side the Norwegians in Afghanistan. And NO DUDE they are not there to IMPRESS you. They don't have a say if they want to serve in the Military or not, it's mandatory. Like the Vietnam vets that were Drafted whether they liked it or not and SPIT on when they came back. So if you want to "SPIT" on someone take it somewhere else, or keep it to yourself. Because when we serve with the Coalition forces they Got our back and we Got theirs. So have some respect.



Lighten up Francis........That was an attempt at humor and perhaps I had a moment and forgot that it does not exist at RVnet.

Breaking news....you are not the only Vet on this board. Plenty of us are Vets.

It gets worse. You see the numbers Tesla reported are counted even when the customer returns the car because of defects. This is why the cars are stacking up like cord wood. Tons and tons of them.

Then you have the lease problem that Ben talked about many, many months ago. (over a year ago??) People returning those cars and Tesla has no way to deal with them.

This is a CAT 5 storm building up and headed right for lying Elon as he smokes his funny $500 cigars and lays in the sun on a deck chair.

And now lying Elon is going to move his factory to China. What happen to all of the flag wavers on this forum? You know; the ones that were touting American made all the way.

I haven't seen any of those flag wavers up in arms over this China move? Odd??? Are they going to denounce this move on this forum? If so, when?

What I cannot make sense of, I could not find any articles on it or missed it. Deliveries aside, the production was only 77k automobiles. This is only a run rate in the 300k range. Is there any guidance or projections how they get to 400+k by the end of the year. Much less than a 500k run rate by the end of 2019.
