IMHO....Tusk lost credibility with me and don't trust anything coming out of Tusk and/or Tesla...



End of quarter should have the CEO focusing on that 10Q...and just another oblique misdirection to take the public's attention away from the 10Q news

Tusk announces custom horn sounds....goat and fart sounds...and news of SpaceX falling behind schedule...


Elon Musk humiliated: Tesla CEO attacked........r latest custom change to electric cars 



Quote:

Mr Musk’s latest idea comes after NASA boss Jim Bridenstine made a thinly veiled shot at Elon Musk over the SpaceX chief’s inability to meet his deadline to the US space agency.

Back in 2014, SpaceX was awarded a multi-billion dollar contract by NASA to build a spacecraft which would take astronauts to the International Space Station (ISS).

SpaceX, which was awarded the contract alongside Boeing, was meant to be ferrying ISS crew by now, but several delays, including an explosion during a ground test of the Dragon Crew capsule back in July, have set SpaceX back.

As a result, NASA has continued to rely on Russia’s Soyuz rocket to take American astronauts to the ISS.

Snip....


NASA is unhappy that Mr Musk and SpaceX have no unveiled the Starship rocket, while promises have been unfulfilled with the space agency.

Mr Bridenstine tweeted: “Commercial Crew is years behind schedule.

“NASA expects to see the same level of enthusiasm focused on the investments of the American taxpayer. It’s time to deliver.”

However, Mr Musk hit back at Mr Bridenstine, claiming the delays reflect the industry as a whole




Doesn't Tusk's response sound just like his fan boys n gals responses on blogs and forums ? Divert, go oblique...

Exactly! The company is burning down to the ground and what does Tusk tell he engineers to do? Design fart and goat noises!

Instead of fixing charge ports that don't open or work Tusk is working on fart noises! NICE! [emoticon]

What next? Is he going to direct people on the M3 line to put flour in the AC vents?

Instead of working on car problems like all of these people are having Tusk is working on fart noises! Unbelievable! [emoticon]

BTW I have lost count of the people that have left the company lately. Too many to count. Nothing to see here. Normal turnover! [emoticon]

SpaceX wins NASA funds to build and test Starship’s orbital refueling technology

Noted multiple times over the years (and in recent days) by both SpaceX and CEO Elon Musk, an extremely robust and reliable method of orbital refueling is essential to the success of Starship’s current designed – perhaps more so than any other single aspect of the next-generation launch vehicle.

Have always said I admire Musk's innovations, but think Tusk's management sinks


A corporation is a large system made up of many, many sub-systems and components

It is only as strong as it's weakest component(s)...

Ayep, Tesla is...well, basically cheating. The Porsche Taycan that went round was a prototype but at least it wasn't modified...

edit: oh of course, the filter, just replace the stars with bullsh i t (no spaces) and please don't mind me

clicky....

The Nürburgring Is No Place For Elon Musk’s poop

Belies most of Tusk's management metrics as the CEO of a produciton street vehicle

What is Tusk going to design into the Semi ?....Another level of duty cycle requirements over a 'car'...

All that noise and they still got their asses handed to them by a stock 4 door 5 passenger sedan. Too funny.

How much was that Telsa? There are bountiful Mustangs and Camaros running those times for far less invested. I don't think I would use this as a proxy for speed or quickness vs an apples to apples comparison. Now if it was an analysis of what can someone do with more cash than brains you have something.

Base model Mustang is not exactly going to put down a 12 second quarter.
Shelby is at least $75,000.
So go ahead and compare base Model S to a top Mustang to get a little more equalized on money.
