Very well said. Phony excuses given for the so-called supply chain crisis and chip shortage. We know who


Unless all the major manufacturers are in collusion, not likely. Someone would jump at the chance to eat up market share increasing profits thru volume over margin.

And if they want to go into collusion, much simpler to quietly eliminate/reduce discounts and rebates.

PS: Tesla is making a fraction of the vehicles the big boys are making and they are playing in the high end of the market, so paying an extra couple hundred to source chips from a limited market is easily justifiable.

Help me out here. If I want to get a new truck in a year or two it looks like I should order it now. So if I order now can I order a new 2023 or 2024? Or am I forced to order a 2022 that will be two years old as far as book value goes when it gets delivered?

Well MeAgain everyone but you know that Tesla and Elon Musk are very different in a positive way from rest of corporate America and including the other auto manufacturers.

That's a plus in most scenarios. But would be a detriment if someone was intent on a particular model year for a particular reason. IE getting the "last" of a good model before some questionable changes...
