Imagine the ruskies leave the ISS leaving an American stranded and the station slowly spinning to earth. Elon sends a ship rescues the guy and takes over the station. That may force me to buy a car.

I'll even do an O'Bomba bow to Musk if he can pull that off!

Some big deal breaker with tesla cars.
The worst is they are dealer serviced no exceptions. Probably looking at $150 and hour laber rate.
Too much like an apple computer,everything comes from them, no aftermarket parts.
Second problem is nearest dealer is 80 miles away.
ID rather a good old GM bolt with the new battery design or an older volt.

Im thinking I'd buy a 1964 Buick in Elons honor...

But darn, I do have some respect for him right now for keeping Ukraine online. Not enough to buy a Tesla, but still...

Love It,Newbs!! Absolutely Love It!! Regarding Mr. Musk,I Don't Reward For Failure,I Don't Penalize For Success.... I Give The Man His Due For What He's Done In The Ukraine,And For His Comments Made Lately In The States Regarding Oil... Regarding Supporting Him By Buying A "Big Barney Mobile"? I'll Certainly Support Him Before I'd Ever Send A Dime To GM Mary Barra....

I figured. And with everything run by that touchscreen glued to the dash what happens when the software crashes and you get the blue death screen? You reboot at 80mph?

Those legacy car companies are all has-beens , over the hill.

Just bought my second Tesla a Model Y long range for delivery in

August , already have a Model 3 long range and my wife has a

Chevy Bolt Premier.

Like the $60.00 power bill for February for the 2 cars, about 1500

miles. Average over 100 mpge on the 2 vehicles.

Will never buy a gas buggy again.
