(CNN)   CNN Money decides to step into the spat between Tesla and the New York Times by driving the same Boston to D.C. route in the Model-S as the NYT's reviewer did. "With a full battery, there was no need -- none at all -- to nurse the car's battery"   (money.cnn.com) divider line 25

This controversy over Tesla has gone on for so long, I wish the San Bernadino Police would just throw it in a cabin and set it on fire so it would end.

Prank Call of Cthulhu: Hotdog453: verbaltoxin: Kanemano: Whoopee a $100K +super car that you have to drive at 60 MPH

Except it's not a super car. It's a sedan.

Whoopee. A 100k+ sedan that you have to drive at 60MPH.

And you have to spend an hour "refueling."

$100k supercar is a piece of crap. That's just what I want to do when I drive, constantly worry if I can make it to the next recharging station and then spend an hour cooling my heels. Who the fark would be retarded enough to buy one of these?


If I was insanely wealthy I'd buy one, and have my servant follow me in a ZR1. We would then swap when I have to recharge. But then he'd never be able to catch up, as I could refuel in like 3 minutes.

I'd never see my loyal servant again.

csnake24: NYT is just the propaganda arm of the GOP (well the less extremist part of the GOP if that still exists).


Right.   That's why the NYT has endorsed only democrats for president since 1960.  Must be a double-bluff.  It's an X-K-Red 27 technique.

Why in the world would I buy some unproven, expensive technology when a cheaper, more reliable system is already in place? That's why I ride my horse around, rather than one of these 'motor-cars'. I hear you have to stop and put some kind of beastly chemical in them. My horse can crop grass by the road!

And they are always breaking down, so expensive! A new hose here, some gasket there! When my horse goes lame, its off to the glue factory with him and and on to the stable for a replacement. No muss, no fuss!

I dare say that motor-cars will never catch on.

Prank Call of Cthulhu: dittybopper: Not significantly, no.  Simple math:

Prank Call of Cthulhu: See, the difference is, it's not like there already were wireless telephones and someone was introducing a more expensive, less capable version.

Zarquon's Flat Tire: I know right? Remember back in the 80s and 90s when they tried to make wireless telephones? Those giant bricks had almost no talk time and were expensive as hell.


See, the difference is, it's not like there already were wireless telephones and someone was introducing a more expensive, less capable version. The phone equivalent of the Tesla would be if someone right now introduced a new cell phone, but it had only half an hour of talk time, took three days to recharge, and cost $10,000. But it looked really, really cool and was powered by farts  instead of electricity.

enry: You mean the charging stations that have solar panels on them?


So they don't work on cloudy days? Cute, but they are still running as part of the grid. It's just when they aren't charging cars, they're making money for the station owners by feeding power back into the grid. (It's probably the only reason service stations agreed to install them to begin with, they get a free solar install)

Once you've got 3 or 4 cars there constantly charging, those solar panels will not be enough.

Like all liberal news outlets, the NYTs is full if nothing but lies and propaganda. The Enquirer is more legitimate.

MayoBoy: Trapper439: Kanemano: Whoopee a $100K +super car that you have to drive at 60 MPH

Unless you're on a German autobahn, why would you ever need a car that goes over 60 MPH? Last I heard, there are these things called "speed limits" and electric cars like the Tesla can reach them.

My commiserations about your tiny penis. Have you considered buying a great big fark-off gun to make yourself feel better?

You drive 60 MPH in the left lane too don't you?

once there are more charging stations that won't be necessary. also most people just use their vehicle for short commutes and an electric car would be ideal for that. also no carbon emissions,no noise pollution,no terrorist funding petrol.

The douchebag from the NYT did a hatchetjob smear article on the Tesla, and he got caught. Should have realized that the cars' computer would track enough information to debunk his claims, especially with GPS. Whoops! This new report just verifies Tesla's data.

NYT disavows and fires reporter in 3... 2... 1...
