Subby, TFA is about Tesla cars, not Volkswagens.

TastyEloi: ghare: Why is it that "conservatives" hate conservation? Why does someone riding a bike or driving an electric car fill them with such rage and hatred?

I think for some of them it's a masculinity thing. "Real men" should be driving loud, powerful, fume-belching cars. Peddling around on bikes and driving quiet, non-polluting electric cars is for wussies.


Because they understand physiology and how the human body gets weaker with reasonable amounts of regular exercise.

It's the smug look from liberals they can't stand.


Pretty much. In general conservatives have self esteem issues, and they freak the fark out if they think that someone thinks they are better than them.

Consumer Reports = Best car ever tested. http://money.cnn.com/2013/05/09/autos/tesla-model-s-consumer-reports/ i ndex.html


It's interesting to me that there are so many other equally expensive--of not more expensive--cars that don't rate anywhere close to the Tesla for safety. It's nice to see an automobile manufacturer actually care about making a safe car and not offer excuses as to why they can't do it.

Hopefully, some of the Tesla engineering safety advances will become available in less expensive cars.

Not having an engine block and 30 gallons of accelerant tends to make a ride safer.


Typical commie-liberal move. Real Americans like sitting their family 30 gallons of accelerant before getting them up to freeway speed.

Zizzowop: Subby is trolling. The Model S got a 99 out of 100 from Consumer Reports, Motor Trend car of the year and maxed out the NHTSA safety rating. Like it or not, nothing there would make anyone think the car is unreliable. Overpriced? Well, given the high-standard of quality and safety, that's a very subjective thing to say. Like many others have said, if I had the cash, I would buy one, and having said that, I would not buy an equally priced BMW, Cadillac, Porsche, or even those manufacturers cheaper models for that matter.

Gotta love watching tiny women driving around alone in massive SUVs that they cannot handle with gas at the prices they are at.

I love CA, but man, people are f'in stupid.

All I know is that when in SoCal in business, my rental Taurus or Charger sticks out like a sore thumb. Does anyone buy American any more or is it state law requiring residents to drive foreign make cars?

/Yes, I know where most Accords, Camrys etc are built.

Whatever, suckers.  I've got my eye on this beauty that has space age design and 70mpg.   Put my deposit down and the dealer assures me the car company will roll out production real soon!

dkimball: That would be Mercedes-Benz.  Their quality has plummeted while their prices have sky-rocketed


Who cares about quality when you can download parts?

Anyone know if Tesla is looking into the new Formula E racing series? I doubt they would go in as a competitor, but I could see them sponsoring a race. Toyota had the naming rights for the Sonoma race before they were in the NASCAR cup series.

I'd like to take the hyperloop down to the Tesla 200 in LA. Then I will know that I'm living in the future.
