RE: Elon Musk is falling apart
If you put the styling aside, the specs on it are incredible, especially for the price. I really don't know whether to love it or hate it. I mean, when I was a kid I always thought this is what a 21st century vehicle was supposed to look like. So I'm more at home with the design than most, despite knowing how out of step it is with current car fashion trends. But the average truck buyer isn't going to be down with this purely on looks alone. The glass breaking was a massive fail, though.

I like the style, actually, don't know why you complain about it. For sure it's better than typical 2010+ oblong and featureless cars. Only thing that could be better are wheels, they don't fit the rest too well.

RE: Elon Musk is falling apart
Call me cynical, but I believe they knew the glass would break. It was staged. Elon wasn't surprised at the breaking, not even the second attempt where the object was thrown without any force. They wanted the truck to go viral and knew a "malfunction" would make it so.

RE: Elon Musk is falling apart
I agree. It was a marketing stunt. However, for anyone who lives on the West Coast, we know all too well how often windows get smashed by degenerates. So when I heard it was unbreakable glass, I just kind of shrugged and said this will be a good deterrent for junkies looking for quarters.

As to the design, I like it. Its a fuck you. Its simple. If it turns out to be a monocoque design I think its smart. Also, as a former stainless steel fabricator, I think the alloy has been all but forgotten. Its time stainless saw a bump into the 21st century.

I do still love my Chevy trucks, but I have been feeling for a long while now that new vehicles are far too complicated. I think the time for a VERY simple and reliable vehicle is now.

Yup - looks like a stunt - they use a sledgehammer here to show the durability of the materials used:





And as far as Tesla goes - I have driven some and this is the first one I would buy.

Plenty of men will also buy it, because it's an utterly alien car. And the security measures will also come in handy if many areas.

If you believe CDAN, Elon Musk is a CIA asset helping to bring Mexican cartel drugs into the United States for CIA black ops funding. Intel agencies always pick someone with serious vices (women, drugs) to easily control them, and Musk has had his share of problems with both.

Musk could just be a public face of government funded companies. He does not appear competent enough to run them all.

< heh - then the financing of his companies is ensured - supplementing his income with a billion or two cocaine money isn't a bad deal.

I expect most big corporations to do shady stuff. At best right-leaning guys like the IKEA founder stay free from most vices.

RE: Elon Musk is falling apart
Musk seems to get away with a lot. He bailed out his solar city company by merging it with Tesla, despite huge conflict of interest. Tesla is valued as richly as BMW but sells a fraction of the number of cars. It’s difficult to short Tesla, the stock seems to be manipulated to make it
Very risky to short. He defends some guy in Thailand and smokes pot on YouTube, seemingly without consequence

After finding out all the massive hoaxes pulled on us by government like the moon landings, 911, etc, I've had to change my view on Space X returning it's booster rockets. Bull. No way. How much more complex is that maneuver compared to keeping batteries from exploding in your car?

Watch a Hawker Harrier take off and land vertically.

Does anyone actually believe that they've taken 200,000 pre orders?

The pre-orders are a hundred bucks down, so yes.

I know of at least 7 people that have pre-ordered this thing, with at least 2 three motor (the highest end) ones.

I don't know that I believe they had 200k pre orders but I certainly believe they have a shitload of them.

RE: Elon Musk is falling apart
You will be certainly the guy with the first year 2055 car on the block.

The car brands all know how to make futuristic cars, but usually they try to stay away from it for mainstream appeal but also the ability to introduce more models down the line and to come down to those extreme design models in 20-40 years. When you go too far out on a limb, then it wrecks the design and brand image for future models. Small producers can go for it. Elon Musk seems to have a ton of elite backing and the niche car maker can likely make it if he can deliver on the below 40.000$ price tag.

You can just imagine the board room meeting.

Musk: As for design, I'm assembling an elite team of autists.
Board member: You mean artists?
Musk: You're fired, get out.
