  1. FAKE NEWS: Again as your own posts shows and the twisting by ICE fan not wanting to admit the difference then and now and the idiot at Business insider that this is all based on OLD OUT OF DATE DATA. QUOTE: That difference is night and day, according to a new study published in the journal Nature Energy by University of California Davis researchers Scott Hardman and Gil Tal that surveyed Californians who purchased an electric vehicle between 2012 and 2018. THIS IS NOT A NEW STUDY, It was published 3 years ago. Now if very different than then and as has already been posted
  2. WOW, look those inefficient headers. @balthazar are you going to put modern headers on it or stay with these factory flow colliding headers?
  3. GM today announced the increase to $35 Billion representing a 75% increase from initial commitments for the 2020 to 2025 R&D period. This will support gm's leadership as they grow to become a market leader in EV's in North America, global leader in battery and fuel cell technology via it's Ultium Battery platform and HYDROTEC fuel cells and through Cruise, which will allow gm to be the first to safely commercialize self-driving technology at scale. gm is targeting an annual global sale of EVs of more than 1 million by 2025. Initially when gm announced their EV R&D commitment,
  4. How is this unconstitutional for a county to set laws governing what you can and cannot do to your auto?
  5. I wonder what affect peoples tastes for cars versus SUVs has played in some of the numbers not just for Tesla but for all manufactures. Tesla to me is overpriced for what they offer in the Tesla S. I think there are far better options out there and sadly only from an ICE option as no one else is building a true car BEV at this point due to the market pretty much dictating Trucks and SUVs. Real sign will be sales if Tesla gets their truck to market and how it stacks up against Ford, gm and Ram. What part of Sergio was stealing the profits from Dodge, Ram, Jeep, Chrysler to pr
  6. @A Horse With No Name Yes same here, looking forward to meeting you too. @trinacriabob Let me give you a late apology for those idiots as that is not the PNW way. Always been a stopping point for the Asian rim and as one married to a Korean, living daily in a multi-cultural environment, it is always important to include everyone. I do agree with you and others who have stated that it does vary from area to area. Hopefully next time your out this way, it will be a far more warm and embracing feeling. I can say, I have had to over the last decade correct my own parents who were Califo
  7. On Tuesday June 15th 2021, GM and Wabtec announced their partnership to take the Locomotive, the backbone of America and the world for moving freight into the 21st century with the FLXdrive Locomotive and what the future holds. The rail industry for over a century has depended on the carbon heavy diesel technology to serve companies in delivering products all over North America and the World. In the last few decades, Locomotive's have been moving from pure diesel to an electric driven powertrain using diesel generators to provide electricity to the powertrain in moving freight.

  9. Dude where did you live around here, as one born and raised here, yes we have the redneck uneducated idiots around the military base in Tacoma and Bremerton, but except for the extremism of narrow minded thinking people in those areas, over all a very multi-cultural embracing all society here. Way better than the year plus I lived in Texas and had to leave due to how extreme the racism is by both white and black against anything that is not one of those two colors and comes into their own self segregated spaces. Not wanting to get political, but am honestly interested on where you feel th
  10. Happy Birthday to @andretti @Jordan559and @USA-1
  11. I believe these insiders are indicating that executive Management at Stellentis, especially the America CEO saw the success of the launches with pre-orders and wants a piece of that pie, so that is what they are indicating to from reading the story on The Detroit Bureau. It makes sense, no executive wants to hear that their competition has sold out pre-orders for first edition Hummer or First Edition F-150 Lightning and not have anything to compete with. So I would assume that executives have pushed hard on having a RAM answer to those BEVs.
  12. Tesla stock is down 3% so far today and with that, the bump from taking the fastest production car is over one might guess since the Tesla S Plaid did cover the quarter mile at 152 mph in 9.23 seconds replacing the Dodge HellCat that had done the quarter mile in 9.65 seconds. Now according to "The Detroit Bureau" who talked with half a dozen insiders, Dodge wants the title back and is working on an electric car that will be faster than Tesla. In the past CEO of FCA Sergio Machionne was openly hostile towards electrification. Now that FCA merged with PSA and the new company is Stellan
  13. Yes Posting this was not to get political! It was to point out that as the Auto Industry moves to BEVs, the infrastructure has to match and with Tesla building a huge plant there to produce trucks, SUVs and Semi's, clearly power production and reliability needs to match. One does have to wonder what it will take for people to step up and realize that consumers of BEVs are going to want reliability with redundancy.
  14. Another Major Failure for Texas Power Grid! Texas is sweltering, and majority of power plants down produce natural gas (electrek.co)
  15. Ya all know that I am all for alternative fuel solutions, but for some auto companies ya have to really question the lack of common sense in development R&D dollars spent. Off-road-capable Land Rover Defender fuel-cell prototype confirmed under development (greencarreports.com) Land Rover has announced they are currently working on their own Fuel-Cell prototype to have what they say will be a very green solution for off-road use. Considering the lack of infrastructure and the needs for a very high pressure fuel tank on top of it taking more energy to create a gallon of Hydr
  16. Where is a police when you need them to ticket for unsecured load. Talk about dangerous, that is just crazy.
  17. Love it or Hate it for the looks and useless road going, but on a race track, it should be amazing. W16 power is a very decent tone.

  20. This adds to my concern for Tesla as Musk has now stated he will not own any property or be tied to any single home. Always on the move living in different places every night seems to say he has a mental disorder. Elon Musk re-lists ‘last remaining’ mansion at astronomical price of $37.5 million: ‘It’s a special place’ (msn.com)
  21. Interesting to see the latest patents that Tesla has been granted and many look like ones that have been given to other companies for ICE solution, the difference being EV solution now. Interesting. TSLA Stock - Tesla, Inc. SEC Filings Interesting to see their fillings and how much of the parts are coming in for building an American Sedan are from China. Just a portion for the California plant. Clearly the stock market does not see the huge growth of Tesla and that makes me think we will see much more insider's dumping stock. Tesla, Inc. Common Stock (TSLA) Price/Earn
  22. Why is it so hard for you to just be up front and post the links with valid facts rather than play shell games. Tesla, Inc. 2020 Annual report 10-K/A (sec.report) Now lets address that the majority of those Stocks are granted to him with purchase prices from $6 to $20 per share but cannot be accessed by him till between 2025 and 2030. It puts him down in the lower Billionaires list when one realizes he cannot actually purchase and sell the bulk of those shares. Big Question for the Shareholders is why is the Board granting shares to Musk 4 different times over the 2020 ye
  23. Seems those that even are still working there are jumping ship as Tesla insiders since Jan 1st 2021 has dumped $288,016,277.46 in share into the market. With GRACIAS ANTONIO J being the first one to sell off all of their stock in the company to the tune $138 million plus in just their holdings alone. If these people saw such long term growth, then why not hold onto some of the stock rather than sell it all off? TSLA - Company Profile for TESLA, INC. - MSN Money
  24. Everything you are saying is what people heavily invested in Lehman Brothers was saying when that Crashed. A company that had $639 Billion in Assets with $613 Billion in Debt and at the crashed caused $111 Billion dollar lose, everything overnight when their smoke and mirrors was blown away by the wind. The rest was a wash that people still today are trying to recover from. The Clear Points of why Tesla's house of cards could cause another global depression like Lehman Brothers. Causes of Lehman’s Bankruptcy Lehman’s bankruptcy had four underlying causes:4 Risk. T
