Ordered my 3 on day 1. First order processed that day at that location. Patiently waiting. I have complete confidence that Tesla will deliver, and have invested in the company accordingly.

Fairly certain I'll get it fully loaded. I suspect many will use the "cheap" price as an excuse to splurge on options.

#169 3 years ago
Quoted from Davidus56:

Ehhhh..., No.
Tesla is way behind Waymo when I comes to A.I. Basically, they have none. Tesla will not be driving you around in 12 months. It may be crashing and killing a lot of people in 12 months, but whoever is feeding you this autonomous driving hype is lying to you. The company has so much debt and so much ongoing losses that capital markets are treating it as 'junk status' in capital raises. Tesla may not be around 2 years from now. They probably do not have enough resources to produce the model X, so their demise is imminent. You might check out Jim Chanos or SeekingAlpha to get a better idea of how deep this cess pool goes.

Let's agree to disagree. Just note that two years from now if they're solvent we will all check back in to bask in your defeat. You can do the same naturally.

Quoted from Astropin:

Then you haven't been paying attention to the resale value of current Tesla's. Not all EV's are created (or sought after) equally.

Indeed. Nissan is most certainly not Tesla.

Think Nokia and Blackberry cell phones at the time iPhone came into the market.

Quoted from Electrocute:

Same battery technology. Poor investment. Tesla 3 will be a Dinosaur within 10 years.

In 10 years the model will be long superseded.

Something like this...

#366 3 years ago

Alright PBRockstar, you encouraged me to schedule a test drive. It's about time I actually experience driving one. I also made a huge investment in the stock, so I best be sure these things aren't crap.

IMG_0581 (resized).PNG

#376 3 years ago
Quoted from pinballrockstar:

Hahaha i am considering stock too, $305 a share at the moment right?

About, yes. I'm holding off buying more right now. I got in at about $180 maybe a year and a half ago, then added more about a year ago when it briefly tanked (I think I was in line for my Model3 resveration when I was submitting my orders), then added more in December before it took off again. High risk, but I'm confident the long term will pay off. Tesla has a big future.

#387 3 years ago
Quoted from Davidus56:

Tesla is a house of cards with debt and negative cash flow piled so high... the first wind that comes along will blow this house down. I just listed my P85D on cargurus. I'm getting out while I still can. Other manufacturers like Jaguar and GM will provide the same or better range without the risk of losing the investment in your car when the stock collapses. If Tesla trades down to the teens... if it is at risk of default and bankruptcy, what do you think your used car will be worth? The answer is squat.

Time will tell. I'm patient. Let's check back in a couple of years from now and show our hands.

Some Model 3 options confirmed...

#433 3 years ago
Quoted from Brijam:

There's an air suspension option on the Model S. It looks like they're saying that's not an option on the Model 3.

Correct. Bob E, the air suspension on a model S supports different ride heights. I had this on my Range Rover (my anti-Tesla gas guzzler), and while it's nifty, there's a lot of extra expensive parts to support it (e.g, a compressor, reserve tank, 4 sensors, 4 air coils, valve body, and CPU module if I recall correctly). It's understandable in a more affordable model to omit this option.

Meh. I think this is just media moving the market, and fear mongering. It is inevitable.

Take a close look at years of Apple being judged, the sharp freak-out dips, and then the recovery. If you have the balls to hold on, you'll be reaping the gains.

Full disclosure ...I have a large position in Tesla, and I'll admit to being a fanboy. I was a fanboy for Apple too in 2008. When it bottomed I bought in big. With the iPhone on its way to market, and for the years that followed I laughed my ass off at those idiots that predicted a downfall ... one that never came.

#576 2 years ago
Quoted from pezpunk:

i know a pickup truck is in their plans, but I think it's still 2 cars away. i think a crossover vehicle is next after the 3.

I think the "Master Plan" said the Model Y small SUV will be the next vehicle (aside from the Tesla Semi which will be unveiled in September). So Tesla will have the completed S-3-X-Y ("SEXY") lineup. I suspect the Y will be announced in the next 3-4 months, but that's purely a guess .... get the 3 rolling out the door, and then line up the next buyers for Y.

Based on the unofficial delivery estimator I'll have my 3 in November.

For all you Pinside Tesla investors and fanboys I'll say this now ... if our bet pays off I'll have a party at my place in Northern NJ for us to celebrate. Let's say when my first million rolls in I'll send out invites.

Do you own a Model S? Or are you an employee? I signed up on day one, and nothing.

I'm not an employee or Model S owner. I'm a day one preorder on the east coast, first to complete his order at the Garden State Plaza Mall in Paramus, New Jersey.

I was fifth in line ... but the first four gents were quite chatty with the sales reps ... I walked in, handled my rep a card and had the reserve done in about 90 seconds.

I walked out of the store greeted by ~50 people cheering for what we were all a part of. I put half my retirement funds into Tesla about 2 minutes after...

Quoted from StrangeSubset1:

Holy shit. Did you just get bumped up from November to September? Price is a bit steep for sure though.
I guess their 48k wasn't even correct.
Curious where the 1k registration fee that we put down comes into play. Shouldn,t that be applied some where? Or are they simply saying thank you for that and you won't see it back.
Also curious if you can pick up in Fremont and possibly save 1k destination, I know a friend of mine did that on his Model S. Not that that would really matterr much, but he saved 1000, and got a free tour of the factory, and enjoyed the ride back to LA (on auto pilot).

Nah ... that's a public post from one of the employees (I assume). Yeah, it get's pricey with options, but that's why they call them options... I think I'll pass initially on the autonomous driving/self driving options as they can be added later with just software. I'm in the for long range, premium, and upgraded wheels when it's my turn to do my own configuration.

#608 2 years ago

So how many of you will order a Y?

I'll be first to raise my hand here on that question. I purchased a 2013 Toyota RAV4 off lease a few months ago. I told my wife this is the last ICE vehicle I buy, barring investment/collector cars. The Y will replace the RAV4.

Quoted from rai:

stupid, why not buy a loaded S and get a better car all the way around?

I would agree against buying a used 3 for greater than an S retails. I had suspected that the demand for the 3 would help sustain high resale values for a while. With the rebate incentives you could buy a 3, enjoy it for 3-6 months and sell it for cost (or better) until supply catches up.

I passed a dealer in Cherry Hill, NJ earlier this week and noticed a new 3 on display. So next pass yesterday I stopped in to finally put my hands on one. No test drives yet, but this certainly checked off many boxes in my decision to follow through with my preorder.

Build quality looked great. Seats were surprisingly comfortable. I didn’t feel like I will miss a gauge cluster. The center display was large, well-positioned, and securely mounted. That panoramic roof is awesome. Everything felt just right, and the car is even better looking in person.

This thing has, and will continue to sell big.

Holding onto my Tesla shares ... the company isn’t going anywhere but up.

And so it begins
Not a Mercedes or BMW fan, but they have a similarly loyal following like Tesla. Will be intersting if the projected sales numbers hold true.

Another year and half away ... and with a measly 200 mile range. Hardly a major competitor. But that’s just the fanboy in me talking. I’m sure there will be plenty of people getting a woody over MB’s offering.

#1978 1 year ago

Delivery date just received .... September 26th I'll officially be driving a 3. Pretty stoked.

I'm about 6 weeks and 3000+ miles into owning my M3 DM/LR and love it something serious. My ~100 year old home doesn't have a garage or driveway, but it does have a back alley with gate ... so I trenched 75 feet from the house out back and had a charger installed. Hardscaping/driveway and a sliding gate will be installed soon enough.

Quoted from goatdan:

Holy crap, it's like I forgot how to drive.

After a few months of owning a Model 3, the first time I drove my wife’s new BMW X2 was a fiasco. I too felt like I forgot how to drive. I looked at the key fob like it was a rubber chicken ... I didn’t know how to start the car. I put the wipers on trying to put the car in gear. One look at the dash and it seemed like it had a billion buttons ... my mind was blown. I absolutely HATED the jerky acceleration with the completely alien feeling of automatic transmission shifts. When we got to the boardwalk I pulled into a spot, but forgot to put the car in park ... quickly hit the brakes and then hit the wiper washer button trying to put it in park. Arg ... felt like an idiot. Then I got out and walked away ... leaving the key fob in the center console. Didn’t notice until we got back.

After that I told my wife I never wanna drive her car again.

My Model 3 is a spaceship, and I effin’ love it.

#2611 1 year ago

While hurling yourself to speed in the least number of seconds is exhilarating, it gets played. I’m 50 and starting to slow down a bit ... so you whippersnappers back off.

I love my LR dual motor, without exception. 0-60 in about 4.4 seconds is plenty fast. User Adams says it less than 4, but I don’t know of anyone getting that level of kick. I have the latest software update ... if less than 4 is a reality I’ll be blow away. Web site currently states 4.4.

Performance owners complain of bent rims due to the low profile. I’ll agree, and share that I bent a rim on my LR due to a pothole. Replacement tires from Tesla are stooopid expensive.

#2947 6 months ago
Quoted from goatdan:

I have loved launched roller coasters ever since riding my first, so I hope the thrill never wears off for me.

Fair. To be more accurate it’s just that my opportunities to go nuts on a clear and unobstructed stretch of highway or on-ramp are limited. When those opportunities are there, I often take them, and it feels great. All other times it seems I have to sacrifice being a dick to someone else on the road and/or nailing it only to have to merge onto a congested highway ... I’m asking myself why I just did that ... I launched to 90mph only to slow down and queue up behind traffic for the next 20 minutes to work. It seems senseless.

That said, I don’t want to poo poo anyone who is enjoying the ride. Have a blast. But consider your buffer of safety around you.

#2948 6 months ago

Btw, now I do have to test my 0-60 times. Very curious of the current performance.

I got in at $250 just a few weeks ago, so yeah I’m feeling great too. I had positions before and got in/out at some lows & highs, but never shorted. I am an optimist bull, but know it’s the market response to bull & bear extremes that get this stock really rolling. It’s a stock to hold onto, but an even better stock to trade.

#3021 5 months ago
Quoted from Luckydogg420:

I thought Elon tweeted a while ago that at $420 a share he was going to turn private....

It's a bit more complex than that. In short he was thinking of taking it private, unofficially secured funding to do so, and then all hell broke loose and the SEC fined him and Tesla 20Mil each.

$420 was a psychological price target since ... and now that we're there it's getting a lot of press.

Shortsellers banked heavily (26 million shares as of current, or over $10 billion) on the stock plummeting this year, and it did the opposite. So now shortsellers are stuck with expiring puts and are being forced to buy the shares ... so the stock price is climbing artificially even higher.

#3024 5 months ago
Quoted from jayhawkai:

Most of that is true, but funding was never secured. That was Elon pissed at shorts and trying to hit them in the wallet.

Correct. He could not substantiate the secured funds ... granted he would not have had an issue getting the funds. But that was understandably unacceptable for the SEC, hence the fines.

So is annual service covered under the factory warranty? If not, what does it cost and is it required to keep your warranty intact? I can't imagine there is much to do except check the brakes and battery health?

Honestly can’t recall. Service included lubing the brake caliper glides, and a service bulletin item for the frunk latch. All I’ve ever done is add washer fluid.

It's a good time to own Tesla stock![quoted image]

Incredible run up this past week. I got in again last Wednesday, out Friday, in Monday at the open, and then back out yesterday near the close. All this during a Coronavirus-fueled market sell off. A wild ride.

Time for a cooling off ... but who knows.

Quoted from JoshPA:

I’m really starting the think I love the Y based on the early videos. Can’t wait to see who is first to transport a pinball machine in one.

Agreed. Need to see Pin-friendly dimensions of the Y. That "may" sway me to ditch my 3 and a RAV4 I've kept just for pinhauling. A Y performance would be a great holdover until the Cybertruck gets released.

Quoted from enjoyvelvet:

I am scheduled to pick up my Y on Saturday in Maryland. Cross your fingers it all goes smooth for me! I'll post pictures, etc. once it is in hand.

Please share cargo area dimensions and/or pinhauling pics when you can. I’ll upgrade my Model 3 (and ditch my current RAV 4 pinhauler) if pins fit in the Y.

I got the dimensions, and unfortunately it doesn’t look like a pin will fit completely with hatch closed on a Model Y.

The depth is plenty fine (about 75”), but the head does seem like it will clear the height. With most pins being about 29-30” height, folded. Maybe with the tailgate left open it’ll work. It’s a long shot, but maybe you could pull the two floor panels and rig temporary shallow flooring.

Interior measurements:
B = 70 cm or 27.6 inches
A = 54 cm or 21.3 inches

Quoted from luch:

what's the height dead center of the opening ? , and then 14 inches each way , what is that height ?

Good point. It does arc a bit. I got this from a third party. There might be a chance a pin will JUST make it.

Quoted from luch:

also is the floor boards removable , may be able to get something that is thinner , therefore gain a little more vertical space

Yes ... I mentioned that above. They are removable... just not sure if a substitute floor will be workable.
