Official Tesla Talk Thread **No Politics**

Just thinking it might make sense to start a new one that encompasses the general discussion of the old thread but kept civil enough to be in this sub

Jason All ok?

Tesla absolutely smashing it. Congrats again to that poster (I think it was FC4?), guy bought a boat load at like $300 before the split. He's probably too busy picking out a Pagani now to post here lol.

You mean a Nikola Tesla thread?
I once told an owner of a Tesla on the origin of the name, " Nikola Tesla" This young guy didn't have a clue on who Nikola Tesla was!

I'm certainly no MBA but didn't tesla just start actually making a profit recently? Don't get me wrong he probably totally deserves to be the 3rd richest person... probably the 1st richest. Fucking guy managed to make electric cars cool, built fucking rockets that land on their own and look super cool and is now apparently mind controlling pigs.

That's me! Oh, no, wait. I'm the asshole who SOLD a boatload at about $300 after Elon appeared to lose his marbles making cave diving submarines, accusing people of being pedos, and smoking bowls with Joe Rogan. I used to tease my stepdad mercilessly for selling his 1965 Mustang and buying a Pinto. That's an amateur level fuck up compared with my Tesla investing mishap.

I'm still so sour. I bought at $250, it tanked to $170 iirc, then it recovered to $300 and I thought it was too volatile for my tastes. Sold it for $300 and I could have bought a lot of coke and hookers and pretended it was the 80's.

edit, just saw this:

He pretty much ignored all the skepticism and stuck to his guns. Normal people aren't crazy enough to be billionaires.

I'm still wrapping my head around this thread being in the Off Topic section instead of the General Automotive section. :

Topics related to Tesla, Inc. are not strictly limited to automotive discussions of its cars.

Although they do sell automobiles as part of their business, Tesla [the topic of] encompasses a broad category of discussions that include infrastructure, clean energy technologies, stock price/investments, the personality of Elon Musk, as well as other related news.

One could perhaps argue that we're splitting hairs but I'd say that Tesla-related talk has a broader scope than talking about Mazda, for example.

The only way I can manage to live with myself is that I switched investment advisors in 2011 and they sunk a boatload into Amazon, Apple, and Google for me.

When was the last time you saw the CEO of Mazda take a massive bong hit and go on a rant about pedo cave divers? If that's not Off Topic, I dont know what is!
