Except he delivers.

I remember a story about a friend where he borrowed $50,000 to meet his payroll. The friend is skeptical he can do it and had written the money off.

Guess, what, he got the first Tesla delivered to his house (which by now must be collectible).


Hey, Elon hows things going. Didn't realize you were a fan of Yosemite Sam.


And tell him also that my daughter is a happy customer with her Tesla X.

And my son left the company for more money but after getting a good bonus-separation pay and stock options.

And I made good money trading Tesla stocks.

And I would have enough money of that ill-gained profit to buy 3 of his pick up.

And the clams can be cursing their dark clouds while I'm zipping down with the Tesla pickup pulling my trailer without having to pay for the high priced gasoline and giving more of my hard earned money to the polluters and journalist-murdering Arab sheik.

another tesla thread?
Just wait until TP finds it [emoticon]
All things will have to be rehashed all over again with more and more duplicate repeats.

If it stays on topic it might be fun to watch this new vehicle story unfold.

I am not sure how long the battery bank will last if it is putting out enough to fully charge in 15 minutes.

You'll definitely be in high cotton zipping down with your Tesla pickup on that FREE electricity.

Not long and most likely catch fire after a few of those cycles...

Can't talk about Tesla without the FUD [emoticon]

No charging specifications have been released. Virtually nothing is known on what the pick-up will be, do, or perform.

The biggest problem I see with this idea is that NO charging station I've ever seen was set up for a vehicle towing a trailer. They are usually at the head of a parking spot, often a small one. If you pulled up to any of the chargers I've seen your trailer would be blocking a travel lane or multiple other parking spots. If you tried to pull up to the charger broadside you would be blocking other parking spots and often other chargers that are lined up with the one your using.
So, if towing with this catches on, they have to rebuild all the charging areas again.
The last 4 vehicles I bought: Chevy dually, 2500 Suburban, Buick sedan, and Jeep Grand Cherokee didn't add up to $48,000. I'll pass.

Meh. They’ll adapt. Not to mention people use pickups for purposes other than towing.

The guy is genius and a visionary. We need more people like him.

Sure, he's had a few stumbles here and there but that's expected, especially when you're navigating in uncharted waters.
