    Hummm, “hoops for women’s skirts” sounds like a solution for college students who don’t maintain social distancing. A nearby college town is closing their bars at 5 PM after students mobbed the bars.

  2. Joe Says:

    If GM can win like this with the new C8 Vette, Cadillac Lyriq will do do the same to Tesla, and with a less expensive price.

  3. Lambo2015 Says:

    So which companies have not cheated on emissions? Seems that list is getting to be smaller than the ones that have.

  4. Lambo2015 Says:

    Peugeot may have been around over 200 years but they have yet to build a good looking car. I remember the old Fuego and man was that thing ugly. Tied with the Aztek.

  5. SteveO Says:

    4 FYI the Fuego was a Renault, not a Peugeot.

  6. Kit Gerhart Says:

    I always like the Peugeot 504 wagon, but never would have bought one in the US, given the very sparse dealer network, and maybe suspect reliability.

  7. Kit Gerhart Says:

    6. Actually, the 505 is the one I was thinking of, that was produced into the early ’90s.

  8. XA351GT Says:

    Corvette wins, Yeah against 3 other cars in it’s class. GTLM is dying. 5 cars in a class is hardly a race especially when one team is factory supported to the teeth.

  9. XA351GT Says:

    Correction 6 cars in the class and only 20 in total. A far cry from when there were 3 to 4 classes and 40 + cars running each race.

  10. kevin a Says:

    4. Peugeot had some very good looking cars, they just never brought any of them to the US. Look up 504 coupe or RCZ for example


    I often wondered if the TESLA vertical Integration model is what yields the lack of luxury features in their interior. They don’t have the resources to develop luxury features.

    For instance, I can order a Ford Explorer with 35 way adjustable seats that are heated/cooled/ and have massage functions. In a TESLA I can get heated seats that have the comfort of a stone table. it just is not my definition of Luxury.

  12. Kit Gerhart Says:

    11. Yeah, some people consider that the Tesla Model S competes with the Benz S-Class. I don’t see it at all, at least the interior.

  13. Larry D. Says:

    2 HAHAHAHA!!!! I am sure Musk is already losing several seconds of much needed sleep every night, because of….. your Lyriq.

    Talk about TERMINALLY DElusional.

    I DARE YOU TO SHORT TESLA, JOE. But I am 99.99% you have NO CLUE what “SHORT” a stock means.

    PUT YOUR $ WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS, Delusional and clueless one.

  14. Larry D. Says:

    2 ANd some people, like Joe here, believe the Earth is flat, and the moon is made of blue cheese. SHould we encourage them by repeating their nonsense?

  15. Larry D. Says:

    I meant 11, 12, not 2, in my last post.

  16. Kit Gerhart Says:

    14,15. As one who worships both Tesla and Mercedes, you should realize that the Model S is not even close to an S-Class, as far as pure luxury. The Tesla is more an electric competitor with Porsche Panamera, oriented toward sporty driving, and a hatchback, rather than a sedan.

  17. rick Says:

    Audi,Bentley,Lamborghini and Lincoln to “ensure our new vehicles are truly world class” the new Lincolns are truly beautiful, great looking cars and sport utility,s

  18. Sunrack Says:

    Wow – Peugeot got started in Women’s skirt hoops? Did not know that. I think the oldest US company may be Navistar that can trace it’s origins to Cyrus McCormick’s reaper in 1831.

  19. Kit Gerhart Says:

    Studebaker got their start in 1852, with horse drawn vehicles, but they only survived to 1966.

  20. Ziggy Says:

    13 And how much Tesla stock do you own? You remind me President Chump in that you often spout off about things you pretend to be an expert in but don’t have the experience to know what you are talking about. Tell us all about company stock that you don’t own one share of.

  21. Gerald Thompson Says:

    I remember when in 1966 Huntley/Brinkley came on and said a US auto manufacturer had failed. While only 14 years old, I really felt for those who lost jobs. My dad worked for GMC trucks in Pontiac and we knew how cyclical the industry could be.

  22. Joe Says:


    When you don’t like someone’s responses, you make sophomoric comments which makes you look like a fool.

  23. Bobby T Says:

    19, Kit, Studebaker stopped building cars in 1966, but they did not go out of business. They had other businesses, like STP and Gravely. Eventually they merged with Worthington to form Studebaker -Worthington. That eventually got folded into McGraw Edison and the Studebaker name disappeared. I think McGraw Edison has been acquired by someone else. A little bit of useless trivia.

  24. Bobby T Says:

    18, you are probably right when it comes to companies that have produced cars or trucks, but there are many older companies, such as DuPont, Jim Beam, and Ames.

  25. Kit Gerhart Says:

    23 I kind of remember some of that, living 90 miles from South Bend. I knew there was some connection with STP and Gravely, and I think importing of Mercedes-Benz at one time.

    After Studebaker quit building cars in South Bend, Avanti IIs were built in one of the Studebaker buildings for a while, and later, Tire Rack used one of the buildings. I don’t know what is left of the South Bend buildings, if anything. I haven’t been up there in probably 30 years.

    Regarding Studebaker cars, my uncle had a 1960 Lark wagon, with a V8, 3 speed on the column, and overdrive. It had its good points. It was fairly quick, and got 18 mpg on the highway, good for the time. It was not a very good car, though. It rattled everywhere, lots of engine noise entered the cabin, and the vinyl seats had tears within 10K miles. Even my parents’ 1961 Dodge Lancer, a Valiant near-clone was luxurious in comparison. Based on that car, it’s not surprising that Studebaker didn’t make it.

  26. merv Says:

    25 that was a fun read thanks

  27. Larry D. Says:

    Maybe you should listen to this, Joe, before you short TSLA and buy… GM (LOL!!!!)

  28. Larry D. Says:

    20 I am pretty sure I own a TON of shares of TSLA through my investing and retirement MUTUAL FUNDS, which total close to $10 million US.

    If it makes any difference, I NEVER buy individual stocks for 20 years now. Hoe many times do I have to repeat it, silly OSTRICH? Keep DENYING the obvious, fool. go buy GM and Ford stock instead, if this is what turns you on, clueless one.

  29. Larry D. Says:

    20 And IF all my mutual funds did not own even ONE single share of TSLA, would this change the 100% TRUTH of ANYThing I said, silly person?

    NO it would NOT. And now pay CAREFUL ATTENTION and try to understand the FACTS:



    BY FAR

    THe fast growing WORLD

    Pure Battery Electric Vehicle Market.

    Maybe it would do you good if you copied the above 100 times, with good penmanship, and brought it to your first grade teacher. You would make her day.

  30. Larry D. Says:

    BTW a far more appropriate comparison of the Model S is with the Porsche PANAMERA. The model S looks very similar in styling and also in performance vs luxury tradeoff with the Panamera than the S class

  31. Kit Gerhart Says:

    26 Glad you enjoyed it

  32. Kit Gerhart Says:

    30 Yes, that’s exactly what I said in #16.

  33. Lambo2015 Says:

    Why does it seem like I’m reading a kids coloring book when I read posts from a certAIn PErsON that evErY post is TESla GooD GM BaD, YOU all FooLS, Joe should SHOrT STock, I WEAlthY and at my SUMMer home so You are IDioTS. WhY mUST I RepEAT myself? Oh CAUSe you DONT READ my dribble.. You Should, Me VERY smart Man. YOU should KNOW cause I tELL you ALL the time. ANd don’t have an OPINion that is Different OR I wiLL tell YOU how DUmb YOU aRe.



    You certainly have used all the words today. Absolutely none of them change the fact that TESLA interiors have the luxury of a 90s Nissan Maxima. That is the subject of today. When the subject is stock price or resale value we will discuss those topics.

  35. Larry D. Says:

    No day is a good day for Tesla Deniers and Haters, as the DOMINANT BEV maker increases its world dominance in the pure electric market.

    Never satisfied with all its laurels, it goes ONWARDS AND UPWARDS. a 50% Jump in Battery density in just 3-4 years?

    (Hope Joe and ZIggy don’t choke on their salt-infested wheaties ,or cornflakes as it may be)!

  36. Larry D. Says:

    ANd the good news (or the bad news for the deniers and the haters) keeps coming. The Model 3 retains its value better, also in the EUropean market.

  37. Joe Says:



  38. Bobby T Says:

    33, very well done Lambo!

  39. Kit Gerhart Says:

    A big question regarding residual value of EVs, is what happens in 8 years when the batteries are off warranty, and a few years after that when the batteries start failing in large numbers. The price of batteries, and the status of the battery “rebuilding” business, availability of batteries from wrecks, etc. will have a lot of bearing on value of used EVs with a lot of miles, and especially, years.

  40. Ziggy Says:

    I consider it a badge of honor to be insulted by Larry D. because we all know what the D really stands for. Hey Larry, tell us again how rich you are and how many homes you own and how smart you are, I don’t think we have heard it in the last 5 minutes and we are all waiting for more words of wisdom from you. And while you are at it, go ahead and deny again that you are a paid TESLA plant who purposely calls attention to yourself so that you get the maximum exposure for TESLA. And keep those cute insulting nicknames coming like your hero Agent Orange does, we are all waiting for your next reply (not).
