Tesla CEO Elon Musk calls Berlin, Texas factories 'gigantic money furnaces'​

"Overwhelmingly, our concern is how do we keep the factories operating so we can pay people and not go bankrupt?"

Billionaire doing billionaire things. Fucking clown.

He’s not paying his employees (in Berlin at least) particularly well, fights tooth and nail against unionization and still has the gall to complain about perfectly normal risks of running a business (supply chain issues)? Internalize earnings, socialize losses? Yes, sure, we’re good at that 🤦‍♂️

Until the factory hits about 80% of capacity, it is a money drain. He knows this, so what is his ploy?

To get more money out of other people.

It’s 2022, and Teslas still aren’t stopping for children.


Any want to get run over by a Tesla, or volunteer someone?

Full disclosure: I'm well aware that California's HSR project has major issues. I also guarantee that chinas was most definitely built with at least some slave labor, and dislocated untold thousands of people, with little environmental concerns. I'm not delusional. But still...

I'm pretty certain the system is far from perfect, but many of those "tests" currently being run are not being done correctly. There's this whole campaign by some billionaire guy saying "FSD will run over your children" while his own video footage seems to show that the system wasn't even on... wrt the video posted above: you as a driver can always overrule the automatic braking system rather easily :dunno:

regarding HSR: i think we can all agree musk is a giant egomaniac douche. regarding the "dislocating thousands" for rail... how many people do you think lose their homes to fucking 10 lane motorways?

High speed rail fuck-ups don't have to involve Musk, look at the shitshow that is HS2 in this country.
Oh sure, no doubt! But Musk somehow seems to have made sure that they didn't even get the chance to fuck up their high speed rail - as they didn't even try at all :p

This a seems to be a Tesla weakness going back many years. Doubt FSDBeta is any better.

Another owner did a test and it failed to detect children, real and fake.
