:rofl:

Yep, all you lucky Tesla owners are going to be rolling in the dough when your MagicWonderCars™ are able to autonomously earn money while you're at work, sleeping, etc. Should do absolutely nothing to diminish the value of your vehicle having it be used as a taxi by passengers who can treat the car however they like knowing there's no driver inside.

:rofl:

That's how Tesla cars should be treated now! Use 'em for target practice! :rofl:

Better hope you didn't buy one slapped together during the big push to hit production goals, otherwise you might not have an appreciating asset.
Not to worry. Elon Musk will provide his Tesla acolytes with free SpaceX rockets so they can take their "slapped together" cars (and themselves) to Musk's colony on Mars. Talk about "appreciating asset"! :rofl:

Little known fact, half the lithium that Tesla uses is actually for Elon***8217;s prescription.

Have any of you ever driven a Tesla? I think you would change your mind if you drove one it***8217;s an amazing piece of machinery.

I've driven a Model S, and while it's definitely a cool car, I'd never buy a Tesla due to the fact that I'm not convinced the company will still be in business 10 years from now.

Many in the investment community and in the automotive industry aren't convinced that Tesla is in business currently. :rofl:

Time will tell if Tesla stays around for years to come, I hope so because they have created an entirely different driving experience. I still loves my 535 but the wife’s model S is so much fun to drive and its like driving for free compared to her X3.

We have cut our fuel bill down from $450.00 a month to less than $200.00. She went from paying at least $250.00 a month for gas to less than $30.00 a month for electricity.

But what's wrong with that? With a company courting a particular demographic group? BMW used to go that route, as did Volvo when Sven and Olaf still ran it. GMC historically didn't court the LGBTQ market, Cadillac historically didn't court the hipsters, and Subaru didn't court young urban professionals. I'm fine with brands that don't try to be all things to all people, and I'd be happy if BMW went back to its enthusiast roots.

Tesla's targeted demographics are bull eyes of all premium brands, including BMW. A customer willing to stay with BMW is a lost customer to Tesla as far as targeted demographics is concerned.
