    I’m back mother fuckers.

    Welcome back :)

    I am fine, trust me, no hard or hurt feelings at all.

    The message that was up was funny: "LamboPower will be back in a few hours..." That was up the whole time! Also I notice you got rid of Wheels World (just kidding there seriously, I know that it was pretty inactive)

    Same, I find the whiteness makes it harder to navigate and read.

    Is the Model X a perfect daily driver?

    Why do they rate the "available energy" as a certain amount of kilometers if the energy consumption increases and thus decreases the range? Or did you mean kilowatt-hours instead of km...?

    Very nice, timeless design too, IMO easily looks like it could be a brand-new 2018 model.

    Your original statement was the following: My point was that Apple is no different, their tech has been around forever too, just the particular execution hasn't. Same with Tesla. That is also why I used the rocket example. SpaceX has been very revolutionary, but "what technology did they invent?"

    We've been launching rockets forever too, but it wasn't until Elon Musk that cheaper, reusable rockets that can land upright became available. We have been charging batteries forever too, but until Tesla, no one in the automotive industry had produced any kind of such automotive batteries and/or electric cars like Tesla has. Regarding Apple, what revolutionary tech did Apple invent? Personal computers were around before Apple came along, and so were cellphones before the iPhone. Apple executed on the concepts with existing technology and new developments and innovations they made to create truly unique products. Tesla has done the same. BTW, I am not myself comparing them with Apple, although I suppose they could be comparable to Apple's earlier years. I agree that Tesla can be open to the wolves and should not be cocky.

    I understood you meant it as a figure of speech. I took it that you were saying that the tech Tesla is using has been around since the invention of the electric car, which was over 100 years ago (so "forever"). My point was that while the electric car itself has been around "forever," the electric car tech that Tesla has been using has not. Before them, no one had developed car batteries that had the range or the charging times that Teslas have.

    Would disagree with you in one respect---the tech Tesla did hasn't really been around forever. Yes, "electric cars" have been around forever, but developing electric car technology to the degree that Tesla has no one had done before, and the automotive industry had claimed could not be done. Tesla has brought the concept very far, the problem is that it still isn't far enough yet. Elon Musk as of late seems to be cracking mentally which is not going to help things either. Too much pressure I suppose.

    Teslas don't need brakes?

    Electric cars as the technology is right now (not the price) I think are fine for DDs if you have a fixed commute and wouldn't have range anxiety, but for driving long distances, or taking trips, the technology IMO is not there yet. I drive about 26 miles to and from work each day, and would love to have a nice little electric car that had say a 300-400 mile range where I could just plug it in each night when I got home. I would have an older secondary ICE vehicle for taking long-distance trips, or escaping the area in the event of a natural disaster, etc...the problem is that the electric cars are still way too pricey. They have a ways to go still in getting the battery tech down price-wise.
