Tax breaks for industries are nothing new. Why is there a bmw plant in spartenberg? Not too many electrics coming out of that....
Anyway, you seem to have plenty of tome to spit out Siri like rants, full of chunks of info, but making no overall sense.
The model 3 is outselling the bmw 3 series, just like the s outsells the 7. Bmw are very worried.....
Say hi to Elon the next time you meet. Im sure he'd love to hear your opinions...



Well it seems your memory is just as dodgy as you critical faculties and reading comprehension. And you are still completely clueless on the subject. The best analogy I have for Irish people to illustrate when they have nt a clue about something is - you know when Irish Americans try to talk about Irish politics, they know so little about the subject they are not even wrong. Well, thats you on this particular subject.

Your rambling screed above says it all.

Get back to us when you actually know enough to have an informed opinion. There have been quiet a few informed posters here over the years. Often on the other side. I just throw in my stuff because I'm actually here, locally, and its not just something I read about in the ra-ra PR handout reprinting blogs. Which seems to be the source of most of the Musk knee-pad stories here.

If you ever need directions to the Tesla HQ just off Arestradero just let me know. Been working in the neighborhood on and off for decades. Dont ya know. Even been inside it, once. That in local parlance is the, go fuck yourself, blow off.

Have a nice day.

(sorry, that line was uncalled for)


My. How the mighty have fallen. That's the best you can do? I expected more.

Out of curiosity, was it a dominos or papa john's u were dropping off to hq?

I honestly have no idea why you're here. It's clearly not to make friends or impress anyone.

By the same loose definition, I worked in that neighbourhood on and off for decades. You can't spin up and down the motorway without passing a bunch of household name tech companies. jmc sounds like those god-awful people I hear in Finnegans in Dalkey recounting their "how I met Bono in the jacks and got invoited to a porty in his house" stories.

Two really interesting very honest videos on Tesla batteries for the Nerds among us including a deep dive into the Model 3 battery pack

Tesla starting to ramp up the marketing in Ireland? For the expensive ones obvs.

Got this through e-mail.

It's not clear to me what "experience" means but unless it involves shredding tyres around Mondello for half a lap until the battery overheats I think I'll give it a miss.

Good performance by Tesla. Commentary suggests a lot of high spec models this Q.
Interesting to see if they make inroads in China and how they lower costs models will effect profitability

Well as you seem to be the pizza delivery boy expert around here you can tell me. How many years have you been doing it?

Your postings are those of some guy who goes to public open days at tracks and therefor considers themselves some kind of car expert. I've known people like this. People who almost lived at Sears Point and Laguna Seco and were the automotive equivalent of wine-bores. Idiots one and all. I have also known people who actually knew a hell of a lot about cars and automotive engineering, like one of the top road rally car drivers in Mexico, of all places, for example. And like all true car engineering experts never ever came over as a complete twat. Unlike your postings here. Quite the opposite in fact.

The fact that you go on about stuff that has zero relevance to real life driving and car usage, like EV's drag racing like acceleration, tells it all. And the fact that you take professional placed PR stories seriously. Which is what most of the linked media stories were.

There are a lot more Model 3's around since Labor Day and the most striking thing about them is just how cheap they look. A $50K car that looks like a shoddy Chinese clone of the Hyundai Elantra. For something that cost as more than a 5 series BMW or an Audi 5 it sure looks cheap and tacky. Those with the more expensive paint job in certain colors looks almost as good as a Honda Accord. Which is half the price.

The real news this week is the criminal investigation of Tesla and Musk is well under way...

https://www.wsj.com/articles/tesla-faces-deepening-criminal-probe-over-whether-it-misstated-production-figures-1540576636

..but this stuff takes years.

There is one popular EV on the streets at the moment that looks quite nice and is not driven by the usual EV assholes - the BMW i3. But given that it is basically a $45K Honda Fit that has been tarted up with bells and whistles but still not great value for money. You can buy the Honda for under $20K. And its a very nice car to drive.

So like all EV's. Very expensive, massive depreciation, bad resale value and very expensive to repair. And costs tax payers a bundle. Again which begs the question - why? A fad that would not survive without the tax payers subsidies. If I did not have to pay non trivial amounts of money to subsidize this fad I could not give a rats ass if affluent virtue signalling pricks chose to spend their money on a dead end technology. Which is what EV's will prove to be.

I'm done listening to you and pity people who have to suffer your presence on a daily basis.
Nobody likes you. And it's easy to understand why.
