Tesla can come up with all the cash they need through the different avenues

available to them...

Looks like the semi will start production in Livermore CA in early 2019 ,

maybe 50,000 the first year.

Hey Fred I was there in 1969-1970 and worked in a Petroleum Lab

all the time , In the Army but stationed with the Navy who handled

all the petroleum products.

These energy projects have taken a long time to mature but now are

well on their way to be taken seriously .

1948 was the magic year of my birth so 70 I am.

I always read you posts cause your down to earth.

64--66--2 tours Navy Hospital Corpsman FMT--Navy but attached to 3rd Marines--6 mos in-country--6 mos. field hospitals. Glad ya made it home my brother! Unfortunatly I'm thinkin these energy projects you're pushin so hard aren't quite as mature that the people involved are telling you. Personally, I gotta see a lot more--boots on the ground-- before I'm sold.

Musk is his own worst enemy.

I do see the occasional Tesla on the road but I also notice how unremarkable they look. For their price they blend in nicely with cars costing half their price.

A couple of days ago I was passed by some exotic sports car with a vanity plate something like “STCK-MKT” That guy spent a lot of money on that car and I knew it the minute he passed me, when a Tesla goes by, if I notice I will do so a few seconds later and say to myself “oh, there goes a Tesla”

maybe its my age but a lot of the vehicles on the road look alike.wife drives a 2011 equinox, nice vehicle but the fords, Hondas,& a bunch of others look the same.although the 49,50&51 fords were similar i can still tell them apart ;)

What a role model for your kids, America... always aim high.

Tesla guided by a leftover frat-boy smoking himself up on the air while company executives flee like rats from a burning feed mill.

Awesome stuff here Barney... how classy. As Public Relations chairman you must surely have a good reason to take up for and excuse this latest display of jackassery... yes, no?

I just run a stupid little hole in the wall trucking company and coal yard that no one has ever heard of but I have more professionalism in my little finger than Musk could possibly have in his whole body. This guy is a real card.

Stay tuned for the next episode of indignant nonsense on display. I predict it will eventually someday result in a hostile takeover of the company just to get it away from his mismanagement and ever worsening public displays of lunacy. Tesla will never be a stable company with an Animal House wannabe at the helm.

Really makes me want to run out and order one all the more now Barney after this beautiful example. What a bunch of crap.

Tesla has sent out a software update to all of its cars, completely disabling all autopilot functionality. They must have transmitted this via a satellite, or perhaps via cell phone towers.

Some owners are likely seriously bummed out right now. They now own well less than what they paid for.

With the signing of CA bill SB100, EVs seem to be on a growth path there.

https://oilprice.com/Alternative-Energy/Renewable ... -Bill.html

Now that is aggressive and really stupid. The state is $350Bn in debt and climbing. They will be paying debt with scrip soon. Yep, back to the Wilson days of 1992. The liberals don't seem to care but a lot of head scratching is going on as to why the cost of living is rising so fast.

You can't fix stupid.
