    No we all had a blast in chat, and laughed our asses off every day. Nobody was attacked, everyone flung shit though, and everyone fucking loved chat it was hilarious. Ask Iceman, ask anyone here there was a bunch, and I've met in person quite a few of them. This is another classic troll tactic you do over and over.

    The reason you are a moldy dick spore is you are an internet troll where you start with a kernel of truth (I said was an asshole in chat once, this is where you get this, it's out of context), you then make an accusation you can't possible know for sure, and sit back while we are like, WTF?, and try to explain ourselves. There's probably some term for this troll technique, I don't care to search for it. And you make sure never to post anything personal so you can't get any shit flung back at you, which is smart. Classic trolling, I'm over it. You are too good at, you win.

    It's funny because I was there in an iteration of chat and I remember you attacking people. I've also met several of them in person - why you can't, or choose not to, internalize that information appears to be a matter of vanity and posturing, so keep playing to the crowd like your boy Elon, clown.

    Muted's a nice guy, we had tacos a few weeks back. This is just e-dynamic where misunderstandings are exaggerated & it's easier to dig in heels than compromise. Most tesla bulls I've talked to IRL are pretty reasonable about the shortcomings. A big problem from my pov is that many of the misdeeds are hidden behind the marketing spin of Elon. Like Trump, he aggressively floods media with noise when bad stories come out, conflating narratives & muting the investigation into the ugly side.

    All will be resolved with time.

    This is why sometimes you just can't beat an old fashioned car key.

    Siemens and their dumbass fob invention. Why do we need a little watch battery to get in and push a button to start the car? And they freeze too! Yay!

    Where does the ski rack go and does it have a hitch for a 1up bike rack?

    Panamera Turbo S E Hybrid with 640hp for 230k.... It just took a shit.

    Taycan GTS in the 120s will be the sweet spot. Sporty Turbo look. Still 600hp.

    Maybe on your German cars. Haha. As for me, I've never, ever had a lock tumbler fail on any of my cars. What kind of POS's you driving where tumblers always be breaking?!

    ... I kid, I kid. I've always loved the cars you've posted.

    As with any fraud the story is "don't talk about the past, you aint seen nothin yet!" Followed quickly by "got any spare change?"

    Always be pumping.
    Always be redirecting focus to the next great pipe dream.

    1 million robotaxis by the end of 2020, you just wait! Tesla's are appreciating assets!

    that's a very eco-friendly plan for the unreliability of the Tesla....


    not surprised to see a Musk fanboy upthread not understand the concept, and benefit, of redundant systems.

    That's the Taycan Turbo and Turbo S. The base Taycan is 90-100k starting price.

    Model X kinda looks like a butt plug... I'd get a Rivian.

    Porsche Taycan looks awesome! Gotta give credit to Tesla for paving the way for plug-in electrics to be so desirable, though. Because pre-Tesla, VAG's electricification efforts were half-assed at best. Hell, even with their ICE's they were cheating like mad (see: "Dieselgate").

    Hope the Taycan sells well and we see the tech trickle down to other products. Would love to see a capable eGolf cuz the current one's range is not impressive.
