Want to see a Lucid air in person but after 7,500 fed and have to check state rebate it is a lot of car for under $60k.

Claim: "This pricing wasn't done on a whim and a joint."

Fact check: A whim and multiple joints were involved.

So does the Tesla price include the rebates, or is that before rebates?

Ah, that's how Musk spells "predatory pricing". Neat.

Of course it does.

After watching The Long Way Up, I really want a Rivian.

I've wanted a Tesla for a long long time. Then Musk revealed himself to be a total piece of shiat. Ah well. I will have to look into this Lucid.

I hadn't heard of Lucid until this.

Tesla no longer qualifies for federal tax incentives, but you might get something local.

It actually looks really great. A lot of people were concerned that it was just going to be a Model S copycat, especially since there are a lot of Tesla defectors on staff, but it seems to be really well thought out. They use an 800v architecture like the Taycan, and they have some other cool features like a cooling system that keeps the motor windings from getting too warm and reducing efficiency. I'm excited to see what automotive journalists have to say when they get their hands on it. And Bjorn Nylon.

Working in the computer industry most of my life, I've found 69420 comes up quite a bit in passwords. I think it is also at least 2 of my friends PINs

That's not very secure.  It should be SixtyNine$420

*Phew*... good thing the TransInternet Password Protection Protocol is still in place.

Setting aside for the moment why anyone knows anyone else's password, ~evarrrr~.  But apparently my Old School IT is just that much older now.  : (

Did you really type this with a straight face?  $70,000 is "predatory pricing"?  GTFOH.

Same.  Dream car.

Farkers hate, hate, hate Tesla and they hate Elon Musk even more. That doesn't even rank in the top 100 for ridiculous shiat people have said about them on this site.
