Tesla Model 3 Autonomous Fleet Is Filmed On Tampa Expressway (Florida)

March 12th, 2020 | by Iqtidar Ali

In Tampa, Florida, one of the expressway bridges was temporarily shut down recently to film part of a documentary. The expressway was shut down to film a fleet of autonomously driven Tesla Model 3s. One of the volunteers of the project, Model 3 owner Blaine Johnston, posted the story on Reddit and provided us with some extra stunning pictures of the event (photo gallery below)


Tesla Offers Model S & X Owners Infotainment System Upgrade For $2,500

March 8th, 2020 | by Iqtidar Ali

There is some exciting news for Tesla Model S and Model X owners whose cars were built prior to March 2018 (the infotainment system* in these cars has gone legacy by today’s Tesla standards) — Tesla is offering Model S and X owners the option to update their system to the latest and fastest yet version for a $2,500 fee


Why Tesla Could Be Worth Trillions Of Dollars In 4 Years

February 8th, 2020 | by Johnna Crider

Tesla's recent stock price rise has come as a shock to many, but not to others who have believed in Tesla (sometimes for more than a decade). One of those strong Tesla bulls has been ARK Invest. ARK has been focused on the larger picture since its inception. So far, this has been the best way to consider Tesla's potential — in terms of sales, expansion, and apparently stock price as well


Tesla Is A Tech Company — Here’s Why

February 6th, 2020 | by Johnna Crider

Tesla is a tech company, not just a car company. Although, some still seem to believe otherwise. Joel Feder sparked a debate on Twitter by voicing his thoughts about Tesla. In his tweet, he says, "Reminder: Tesla is a car company. Tesla is not a tech company. It builds cars."


Level 6 Autonomous Driving Concept, & An Appeal To Elon Musk To Make Smart Traffic Lights

February 3rd, 2020 | by Daryl Elliott

Have you ever sat at a red traffic light with no other cars or pedestrians on the road and had to wait? Was it frustrating? If you were in a gasoline or diesel car, did you feel bad about polluting the air? Have you ever sat at a traffic light with 30 cars in each direction waiting to go straight, and the traffic lights instead allowed the turn lanes to go first even though there were no cars in those turn lanes


Timestamped Guide To Part 2 Of Elon Musk Interview By Third Row Tesla

January 31st, 2020 | by Paul Fosse

This is your guide to part 2 of the Elon Musk interview done by Third Row Tesla. There isn't really any need to read about or watch part 1 before part 2, but if you want to, here is the link to my article on part 1 of the interview. I think they both stand on their own, so you can read, listen to, and/or watch them in either order


Tesla Autopilot Mystery Solved — HW3 Full Potential Soon To Be Unlocked

January 31st, 2020 | by Chanan Bos

In June 2019 after Tesla's Autonomy Investor Day, we did a deep dive into Tesla's HW3 chip that explored the various capabilities and potential of the HW3 processor system on a chip (SoC). I may have geeked out a little and made that a bit too technical, so I will try not to repeat that mistake in this article. Long story short, HW3 is a total beast. It is very different from the NVIDIA chip Tesla was using in the previous generation


Tesla Learns To Dance To Elon Time

January 30th, 2020 | by Paul Fosse

After the Tesla earnings call, I was thinking, what has really changed? Sometimes the questions are more important than the answers. Consider what we learn from examining the following questions that most investors had 2 years ago as the Model 3 production ramp began


I Think People Are Misunderstanding Why Tesla [TSLA] Is Valued So Highly

January 23rd, 2020 | by Zachary Shahan

I love looking at auto sales charts — and creating them — and we do so somewhat obsessively as it concerns electric vehicles and Tesla. From a static point of view today, looking at Tesla's global sales versus the global sales of Audi, BMW, or Mercedes-Benz (let alone Volkswagen Group or Toyota) and then looking at Tesla's [TSLA] market cap compared to those companies can leave you scratching your head


Waiting For Tesla Full Self Driving, These Are My Top Questions & Thoughts (As A User)

January 22nd, 2020 | by Zachary Shahan

I'll admit it — I'm super eager for the first edition of Tesla "Full Self Driving" to roll out. Before critics start freaking out, I should make clear that I don't expect to nap, work, or watch movies while using initial iterations of Full Self Driving. I currently use Autopilot a ton, and I'm well aware that it is handling most of the driving just fine while I'm essentially a simple passenger, but I do keep my hands on the wheel and constantly scan the road like a pretend driver fully focused on acting out the role in search of an Oscar (or at least a Teen Choice Award)


Tesla & Robotaxi Economics: The Network That Optimizes The Machine

January 9th, 2020 | by Rahul Sonnad

There is a long-standing argument about whether Tesla is a car company or a tech company. This argument is typically made in the context of how Wall Street should value the company. If Tesla is just a new kind of carmaker, it should be valued at something significantly less than its annual revenue — maybe 25% to 50%, like Ford and GM. Alternatively, if Tesla is a tech company, then it could be valued significantly higher. Google, for example, is trading at about 6 times its revenues today, Facebook at 8, Microsoft at 9, and Salesforce at 10 times. Tesla trades at around 3 times its revenues with some profits, while Uber and Lyft trade around 4 times revenues and have never been profitable


No, Tesla Is NOT The Largest US Automaker Ever

January 8th, 2020 | by Frugal Moogal

Over the last couple of days, as Tesla continues on this monstrous run, the media seems to have been noting that Tesla is now more valuable than any US automaker's market cap ever. (Tesla is currently almost exactly the market cap of Ford and GM combined, around $88 billion.) Even though I would now plant myself firmly in the "bull" camp, this is completely untrue, and I think it paints a problematic picture of Tesla


2020 Tesla Predictions

January 2nd, 2020 | by Guest Contributor

Starting from this year onwards, I will place my predictions for the next 12 months in article form. Most of these predictions are based on historical facts or behavioural economics, and I would be happy if I am 50% correct by end of next year. My purpose for doing this is to mainly get a much broader critique to my predictions in the comments section, so please leave a comment whether you agree or not

YouTuber Explains How Elon Musk & Tesla Will Disrupt 10 Industries

December 24th, 2019 | by Paul Fosse

A few days ago I ran across a video from a criminal defense lawyer in Florida that brings up some points I hadn't heard before. I'd suggest you watch the whole 30 minute video if you have the time. If not, you can read my summary and comments and just use this guide Warren provided to skip to the parts that most interest you


Tesla [TSLA] FUD: “Elon Time”

December 10th, 2019 | by Frugal Moogal

Tesla stock has been on a solid run and the bears are claiming this is in large part driven by Elon Musk's claims regarding new Tesla products that won't come true, or will but will be ultra late due to "Elon Time," commonly understood to mean that Elon makes a claim and then Tesla is always late on it. I wanted to take a quick look at that, so here goes
