    Well.....according to Business Insider Magazine.

    Some new Tesla cars are being delivered with flaws, and owners say getting them fixed is a painful process

    Crappy service and quality issues with the Model 3.....waaaaay below industry standards! First pass yield at 14%. Industry average is 80%. Reports of abusive workplace environment and bogus sales figures!

    According to today's New York Post that carried a full spread story, "Insiders at Tesla say it's a shit show!"

    Hmmmm.....but the climate crusaders come in here and tell us all the time that things are just swell at Tesla!!!

    What exactly would it be that you would want the SEC to hit him with?

    Lying about funding to go private which manipulated stock price and cost investors. Subpoenas have been issued. It's highly illegal

    You do know that Elon, a flaming liberal billionaire, borrowed 5 billion of our Tax Dollars and still haven't paid it back? You go ahead and try that, and see if you aren't investigated.


    Funny how the left hates rich republicans but "LOVES" their uber liberal wealthy elite and will defend them till they die. Just like the Nazi's did with Hitler.

    Teslas are a rip off and the entire electric car industry is an environmentalist's joke. Anyone who buys a car you need to plug in and recharge every 200 miles or use (if you can find a plug), is an idiot. Between the batteries and the impact of CREATING the electricity, they are no better, maybe worse than a gas car. Just kinda cool because they are quiet and have almost instantaneous power. So quiet, they need to have "noise" added so people know you are coming.

    Just the other day on the Discovery channel, I was watching World's Best, and they showed a dragster that was electric. Damn thing was the fastest thing on the track. And, while you could hear the wheels burning rubber, that was about it. None of the loud gas noises, but the damn thing was down the track like a lightning bolt (yes, pun was intended).

    Great points.

    Americans have no interest in electric cars. In 5 years, sales have grown 1%. St00pid. For Christsakes, Ford sold more Focus' than all EV's combined!:funnyface:

    Sure. Internal combustion, even a wankel rotary, can never have the efficiency / low losses of an electric motor. One moving part. No contact (except bearings). The electric car will come into its own when the electricity can finally (and affordably) be generated by a fuel cell with its only waste product being water.
