Tesla Model 3 best selling car in all of Europe for September

Not just best selling EV, but best selling car. Especially significant since Giga Berlin (Tesla’s European factory) isn’t producing yet.

But, but, but... haven't you heard? EV's are just a passing fad?
They need to be recharged for, like, 3 days?
And, and, and, they only get, like, 40 miles range?
And, and, and, nobody, like, wants them?

I keep hearing that stupid crap... and Tesla keeps doubling it's sales year over year.

I wish I would have bought more TSLA at $250...
When it hits about $1400, I sell half, and pay off my mortgage...

Yeah, I have a three motor one on order, don’t know when it’ll be ready. Probably will get a Plaid X though next year, but even that may be delayed. Giga Austin can’t come soon enough!

If my remaining half doubles again at that point, I may get me a Model 3 or it's sucessor... but, that's getting greedy, LOL.

My brother’s long term (5-10 years) expectation for TSLA is $5K-$10K….though he’s been wonderfully off on his timelines so far!

I can't tell you how much I hope your brother is even HALF right on those numbers!

I'm not getting electric until I have to get oil changes and stop at the Chevron every week, like in a regular car. I've also heard the Model 3 can't tow a trailer full of cattle across the country, so it's just not there yet.

I have a friend who works in collision tech at Tesla. He has seen cars that suffered minor collisions that were never right again. Shutting down, flashing lights, etc.

He said if you own one and get in a bender try hard to get it totaled and replaced with new.

Nissan Leaf and that shitbox Bolt are just the tip of the iceberg.

Tesla’s boost in car production was really helped by the fact that it’s cars use different chips than used with gas/diesel engines

I can't haul 4x8 plywood sheets in a 3 or a S (or X or Y) so there's no way people will buy it.

I mean, I have never hauled any plywood or drywall, but what if I need to?

I have a friend who ...

...is never a valid way to convince anyone of anything. Sort of like "People are saying..."



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

Exactly, that's why everyone has to drive a 800hp 1 ton turbo-diesel pickup to work every day. You never know.

No, a dump truck makes more sense.

I have a family member that went into TSLA in a big way and did exactly that when it hit $800. And another that used her APPL investment to buy a house.

Don't worry Paul, it's going to go there and then some for sure.....just wait it out (though given recent history you may not have to wait long).

Never try to time the markets. Hold on to shares until you need it, in the long run it always pays off.

In a bid to expedite Paul F.’s early payoff of his mortgage, I sold some $1400 call options on TSLA for this Friday. So if Tesla stock price reaches $1400, I’ll be obligated to sell some of my TSLA shares (and Paul F. will payoff his mortgage LOL). If it doesn’t, I get to keep the several thousand dollars paid to me by the various buyers for the privilege of potentially buying my shares.

Tesla uses newer chips than legacy auto companies. They also have in-house programmers who can re-code software to accommodate on-the-fly component replacements. Legacy auto is using 20+ year old chips. I think that the problem is lack of demand for ICE vehicles. People are waiting for the flood of EVs that they say are coming...but the legacy companies can't actually build them.
