Wasn't anything genius about it, aside from the software everything else is very much off the shelf parts*. The only "achievement" was selling it a a rich man's toy instead of an econobox. Also they have yet to turn an actual profit last I checked, so not sure if we could really call it successful, popular perhaps.First successful mass-produced electric car?
What advancements? Also giving money to a bunch of smart engineers isn't really genius, you or I could very easily do the same thing if we had the funds. In fact we been doing just that through our taxes going to NASA and DARPA.Advancements in space travel?
He is also an engineer so there could be some measure of autism going on as wellNot creative geniuses. Narcissistic traits tend to be found most among professions like my own, and even moreso in the business sector, the latter category of which Musk squarely falls into.
Oh no someone has a different opinion from yours, they MUST be a zealot!wow, you realy can't give anyone any credit if it isn't 100% conform your religion, can you?
Nothing is perfect but there are degrees to everything, in Tesla's case a lot of their issues stem from ignoring lessons other car manufacturers have learned decades ago and trying to apply software development methodology to building cars.Sure but they are criticisms no more or less valid than those about other products or companies say, for instance, a company that ships suspension parts that are correctly labelled with the right part number but which clearly don't fit?
Then you should be right at home in this thread seeing as how Tesla is based out of California, which you might know, is part of US. But thank you for your extremely valuable contribution to the discussion. We can always count on you to provide extremely insightful arguments.i don't like google, i don't like microsoft, i don't like apple, i don't like anything coming from the US
and for every objection you'll raise on that quote, i'm sure i'll find some valid criticism to debunk it
1 - show me any electric car that can charge from 0-100% in 20 minutes (and I mean a real car not a go kart or something that's not likely to be used as a daily.i'm the one who hates electric cars because it takes a full 20 mins to charge
Go through the cyclists thread and see the points I and others have raised time and again about cyclists taking up the road. It boils down to training, licensure and insurance, like all other vehicles on the road have to deal with.i'm the one who hates bicycles just because they dare to use the public roads
Aside from the fact that I said literally what the investigation into the collision said, yeah I'm totally the one slashingi'm the one slashing uber's autonomous driving, without having read the article
Have you? Because you certainly seem to attack me quite a bit without trying to refute anything with facts or figures.have you EVER changed your opinion after a discussion,
Interesting... so @LeVeL, @Spectre and myself got rimmed by half of this forum for making things political and/or shutting down debate but it's fine for you to attack me because I dare to disagree with you?or just always kept true to your trumpian opinions?
