Tesla - when will it go up in smoke

Recommended Posts

Is this what's known as a cross-threader:

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6744013/Tesla-burst-flames-fatal-Florida-crash-catches-fire-THREE-TIMES-tow-yard.html

Omar Awan killed in Tesla car crash/conflagration. He's also known as the IT chap employed by the Democrats who is supposed to have hacked the DNC computers and given/sold information to the Pakistan government.

The people commenting on the DM article are a bunch of morons - hysterically shouting about how "dangerous" a battery pack is, and how Tesla should do more to keep it safe. I'm not sure how Tesla is supposed to stop a battery pack from breaching when it's slammed at 90mph into a tree, but hey, what the hell do I know...

I was just pointing out the Tesla Fire aspect and the Q/Democrat hacking aspect.

Straight 5's on NTSB safety tests largely thanks to much extended crumple zones, standard topple test didn't even work the COG so low, fire risk on very heavy impacts aside overall probably still one of the safest cars on the road.

On the other front if I were TR and won the lottery don't think I'd be dashing down  to the nearest Tesla dealership, going online to buy one. Assume everything computerised is compromised in some way and the trail of bodies behind the Clintons is simply staggering.

Shifting sales online, axing showrooms and lowering the price to $35,000/£26,000 will create another problem, you may order one, but you will have to wait a long, long time for it to be delivered.

Great for Tesla while the novelty lasts but if you want to go electric sales will go to others.

Then there is the problem of battery supply and demand.

Unfortunately we'll unlikely see dollar parity on pricing. There are some issues in tells supply chain, not least their activity in the the s/h market / approved sales channel, they have some real shortcomings there. Overall though if they can knock them out at $35K sales should be good enough to meet targets, over demand is nothing to worry about, you might a few sales but that is certainly the healthy side of the equation to be on. Battery supplynand demand, I think they've thought about this for longer time that every other manufacturer, so benefit of doubt till they fail to deliver. Maxwell purchase might pull them further ahead of the pack in terms of battery tech.

      Huge amount of grass fires breaking out today as a simple news search will show with many a direct result of local councils letting open spaces turn into scrub and grass verges into hay meadows to avoid spending money on areas they used to maintain regularly.
      Perhaps central government needs to invest in this sort of kit, just in case.

      I bought some Google shares a little while back, which have done very well.
      It seems only weeks ago that I was looking at Tesla at 250 USD, and I was going to buy some next time i had some money to invest, and now they're at 312 USD!
      Are we heading for another tech bubble, or is this the place to be as we approach the technological singularity?
