Quoted from rai:

Unsure: the 3 is newer does it have any new better technology or better manufacturing such that it is lighter weight for given range (I mean lighter not just because it’s smaller but lighter because it was built lighter).

Doesn't the 3 have an entirely different motor? Not the induction motor that the S uses and that Tesla was so bullish about?

Quoted from pezpunk:

it's also absurd that every Tesla accident is a national news story, despite it being statistically one of the safest cars on the road.

Imagine the never ending scroll if ever human driver accident made actual news. Yeesh.

Quoted from Brijam:

Q2 earnings are out and they're much better than I expected. After hours trading on Tesla is up 5% at the moment as a result.
Did anyone else see the tweet from Elon saying that you'll be able to play classic Atari games as easter eggs in all Teslas in about 4 weeks? Pole Position using the steering wheel??? GTFO

Does the tesla steering wheel spin eternally? Because I don't know any other way to play pole position.

Quoted from Darscot:

Now that we have the out thread, hopefully all the negativity can be taken there.

Seriously? Does everything have to be so divisive and shitty now? EVERYTHING?

I don't play golf. Should I go around starting threads about how I don't play or give a shit about golf? No.

There’s also the fact that weed is legal where joe is. Stupid non issue.

How much did the price drop? Since the way you configured it it's still over $60k.

I'd love a Tesla as my next car, but ho-lee-shit am I not in the income bracket to afford one. Even the base $35k seems crazy for a 'commute to work and back' mostly vehicle, and who'd want that stripped down thing anyway? heh.

Quoted from goatdan:

If you get one and keep it for 10 years, assuming $40,000 total purchase price with taxes, fees, and whatnot, you get... $3750 off from the tax rebate + $1200 / year of savings... the car itself cost about $24,250 in that case, which is super competitive with other cars for sale right now.

All those 'in the long run' savings are great. But I don't have the cash up front to outright buy a car at 50k+ and the monthly payments on it would be far more than I'm capable of spending on a car payment.

You call it "self driving" and there will be plenty of idiots who believe they should be able to sleep, have sex, play monopoly, or whatever the hell the please while it "drives itself". It's what Sci-Fi has taught them to expect.

Quoted from MrBally:

Then there are the heavy-haul trailers made by Trail King, Cozad, Talbert and others with stub axles with eight tires per axle so 64 tires. The trailer alone weighs 20 tons. They can haul 200,000# or more. Electric tractors are not yet up to the task.

This guy trucks.
