My First Impressions Of Driving A Tesla Model Y

May 30th, 2020 | by Paul Fosse

A year ago, I didn't know much about crossovers, so I researched them and wrote an article about why they are so popular. Today, I finally got to drive a Tesla Model Y at the Tampa Delivery Center


My Tesla Model 3 Got A Boo Boo, Part Deux: An “Exotic” Experience

May 9th, 2020 | by Paul Fosse

About a month ago I wrote an article about how my wife accidentally backed our Tesla Model 3 into our home's garage door. In that article, it looked like the repair was going to be fast and reasonable in price, similar to repairs I've done to Honda and Toyota cars I've owned in the past


Breaking: Lawsuit Filed Over The Reopening Of Tesla’s Factory In Fremont

May 9th, 2020 | by Paul Fosse

Those in the auto industry are well acquainted with the concept of "bait and switch." This is where a retailer runs an appealing ad for a car or other good at a great price, but when you drive to the retailer to get the great deal, you find out that good isn't available and the salesperson then tries to sell you a higher priced good


Tesla Model Y Compared To Tesla Model S

April 12th, 2020 | by Paul Fosse

Most people think of comparing the Model Y to either a Model 3 (which it was derived from) or a Model X (Tesla's first SUV), but I thought it would be interesting to compare it to the original "designed from the ground up" Model

March 28th, 2020 | by Paul Fosse

After comparing the Tesla Model Y to BMW’s high-performance SUVs a couple of weeks ago, and the more practical but less fun Lexus RX 350 last week, I noticed Mercedes is just coming out with a new performance SUV this summer as a 2021 model year SUV and thought I would compare it to the Model Y Performance


Tesla Model Y Compared To Best Selling Luxury SUV, Lexus RX 350

March 14th, 2020 | by Paul Fosse

After comparing the Tesla Model Y to BMW's high-performance SUVs last week, I thought it might be a similar story comparing it to the best selling luxury SUV, the Lexus RX 350. Where the BMW was comparable in performance, but MUCH more expensive, the Lexus is comparable in initial price, but has MUCH slower performance


Tesla Model Y Compared To BMW’s X5M & X6M High-Performance SUVs

March 7th, 2020 | by Paul Fosse

On the last day of February, BMW launched a pair of high-performance SUVs, the X5M Competition and the X6M Competition. I was inspired to create this article comparing the Tesla Model Y to these BMWs after viewing the YouTube video from The Fast Lane that compared the two stylish, sporty, and very high-performance SUVs


Why Giga Mexico Offers Tesla Advantages That Giga Texas Can’t Match

February 9th, 2020 | by Paul Fosse

Recently, we reported that Elon asked twitter if Giga Texas (a Tesla gigafactory in Texas) made sense. With Tesla's aggressive global goals to expand auto production an order of magnitude within 5 years, I added to the discussion that Giga Mexico might be worth considering, since they need to start thinking about markets beyond the US, Europe, and Asia
