Can't wait, now there is a Tesla I would buy if the price was right. I even have my pilots license (out of date). The trouble is I lack the courage to try. China has offered him permanent residency. It would be shame to lose this character.Can we exchange that offer for Whoopie instead.

Getting cheaper by the minute!

At this rate the average working class CoalJockey will be able to afford one in approximately 37 years after he reverse-mortgages his house and sells his children into slavery. I will be able to afford the top-tier all new Grand Wagoneer when it debuts in 2021 before I can afford one of Elon’s glorified golf carts.

Where ya at Barney? Our besodden ears are anxiously awaiting alongside baited breath for your latest explanation of how “It’s better this way”.

To some companies cars are already here and all they can do

is improve them and get the economy of scale and perfect

the systems in the vehicle. Why try to reinvent something

that's already here ?

Why are so many people burning to death in Tesla's? I just read where the parents of an 18 year old boy who met this fate are preparing to sue Tesla.

The batteries ignited three times. 1) At the accident. 2) While the car was being loaded onto a flatbed to be towed away. 3) And in the police storage yard.

The kid was going 118 MPH IIRC. Good luck with that.

Call it whatever you like Barney but it will no doubt eventually beobvious to everyone here except for you that this company is not as healthy as you say it is. At the end of last year, sales were down over 3,000 units across the board and that is even as the tax subsidies begin to end.... one would expect an uptick in orders just before this comes down, no? Just wait until the subsidies are phased out completely and it is forced to stand on its own... this is what separates the men from the boys and will ultimately tell the tale.

In the meantime you continue to ignore my last post and refrain from comment about the phase out of the more affordable models. All of this while the established companies continue to build what the public asks for and ICE are always being refined too. Gasoline prices remain relatively stable for the most part.

The title of this thread should have been “Tesla WAS the most valuable car company in the US”.

They are still the most valuable! And it's not even close.

As of today:
Tesla: $59.25 billion total market cap
GM: $49 billion total market cap
Ford: $34.45 billion total market cap
