They just recalled a bunch for roof bolts. Somebody lost their roof on the highway the other month and it wasn’t a convertible.

there is a Reason why their ranked at the bottom of quality control but somehow valued as a 1/2 trillion dollar company with 380,000 cars delivered per year. What’s more to love about it.

How is that site considered reliable when it say the number of vehicles affected is "115,0000"? Math is not their forte evidently.

The fact that it is a growing car company. I'm sure none of the other big manufacturers had any safety recalls.

My point is that itís not JUST a car company. Tesla is a groundbreaking technology company that happens to also make cars.

Iím more excited about their walls than cars honestly. Got a small piece at $455 pre split on a flier. Best $15k Iíve spent in a while.

What is their technology?
Electric cars have been around since the 1970s.
Lithium batteries and hybrids have been around from other manufacturers for years.

What Tesla did was go whole hog on a luxury electric car. It also required infrastructure and charging stations etc etc.

but they're downfall will be integrating the battery into the car chassis. no car will be repairable after an accident. Just junk. That means insurance $ will go through the roof on them. and most states minimum insurance requirements be nowhere near enough to cover damage.

okay for the rich person who wants a toy that they're willing to take that risk on not for the average Joe.

Oh. I hadnít realized that. Thanks for sharing.

Meanwhile, 7% (and growing) of their revenue actually comes directly from their competitors. Like, literally big auto cuts Tesla checks. And the solar division? In 30 years natural gas and propane whole house gennies will be as rare as a T-Rex. A few more tweaks to the shingles and itís game over.

But hey, keep valuing them alongside Ford or GM. While Ford looks for ways to sell $100,000 work trucks, Elon lands effing rockets on floating barges.

in the 1800s that led to the first electric vehicle on the road.
in the U.S., the first successful electric car made its debut around 1890

Electric cars are going to become a commodity product
But Tesla's always going to be a niche......imo
Beware of all P and no E....... Usually does not end well.

What happens when the big car manufacturers have viable products in the coming next few years and Tesla looses that $1.5Billion carbon credit revenue.

TSLA will continue to scream since they will be included in the S&P 500 but I feel a 2000 dot.com bubble scenario about to burst.
