re: Tesla is a crappy car


Why do you have such a hard-on for Tesla? Why are you so in favor of gov limiting competition through dealership laws? Are you a car salesman at a Ford dealership?

re: Tesla is a crappy car


lol 3 fires in 3 weeks.

y'all laughed at my tesla thread last week.

anyone still creaming in their pants over the fact 90% of tesla's money is made from trading CARBON CREDITS and not their crappy exploding cars?

i love the spin spin spin on here by tesla fanbois.

re: Tesla is a crappy car


TESLA STOCK


$194 a month ago and $134 today. that's down 31% or almost ONE THIRD of its value in a little over a month.

by anyone's measure that's a disaster.

ETA tesla 3 fireballs..down 1/3 of their value..coincidence? only the 4th fireball scheduled for next week will tell us.

I'm not a Tesla hater, and I'm not a fan boy either...but it's hard to overlook this:

quote:

19,000 Tesla model S cars. 3 fires 70,000 Nissan Leafs (worldwide) 0 fires


Tesla may make a great car, but they have kinks to work out, and they should be held liable for at least one or two of these fires IMO. You shouldn't have to worry about your $80,000+ vehicle going up in flames from hitting some road debris. I know accidents happen, but I guarantee you an equal value gasoline powered car would not have caught fire under similar circumstances. Tesla needs to do some more R&D...maybe look at what Nissan has done with protecting the battery, they haven't had any issues.

I guess ford is crappy too since they had dozens of vehicles catch fire that weren't even running.

Since 1999, the Ford Motor Company has recalled over 14 million Ford, Lincoln and Mercury cars, SUVs and pickup trucks due to faulty cruise control switches, which can corrode overtime and catch fire. These switches have been linked to at least 550 vehicle fires nationwide, and the destruction of many homes and other properties.

P/E= $143.80
EPS= -1.95

Pretty solid numbers there.

At that time, Ford caught a lot of bad PR and was widely regarded as a crappy company, so what's your point?

The problem I have with Tesla is the "do no wrong" attitude people have toward them bc they are "saving our planet" with their cars. Don't get me wrong it's great technology and an awesome car...but had this been any other auto company's vehicle, there would be public outcry and lawsuits galore. A car on fire is a car on fire, doesn't matter who made it...and therefore they should be held liable, pending an investigation of course.

even worse is people defending tesla's claim of how there's like a billion to one chance the LiON batteries would catch on fire by talking about how each person who's car exploded in the last month was 'doing it wrong'.

nevermind in 2 cases it was plain old road debris being kicked up into the battery cluster while driven on an interstate.

This board amazes me. Liberals are a significant portion of this country for better or worse. How is innovation not American? Are we not a nation that is so fricking awesome because of our amazing technological advancements over the years? Hopefully, the Tesla is a just another step towards a better tomorrow.


What does being a liberal have to do with having a Tesla? The two people I know that own them are Republicans. BTW....they are BADASS cars!!!

The problem I have is people pointing, laughing, and seemingly wanting an American company (that could be a pretty big disrupter in an industry that has seen hardly no change in half a century) fail.

I am pointing out that you are accusing Tesla supporters of spinning things, yet you say 90% of Tesla's money is made by selling carbon credits.

And what are you talking about looking profitable? Tesla doesn't look profitable at all, but that's the way things work in the high-growth tech world. As much money as possible (yes, even more money than they actually take in) is poured into R&D and growth. There usually aren't any actual profits until the company reaches critical mass. All the carbon credits are doing is accelerating the growth process, but you make it sound like 90 cents of every dollar they take in is from carbon credits.

I have long since given up on believing that the far right want what's best for the country. They want what's best for their interests.
