    I wonder why Tesla is pushing back the restyled model S by 2 years. Not sure they ever hit the target dates there.

    Mercedes Camper Van may capitalize on the current RV surge but I’m not sure how they compete. They are thousands more than the competition and other than being on a MB chassis don’t really offer anything special over the Ford, Ram van conversions.

  2. GM Veteran Says:

    Wow! The aftermarket is going to be selling whiskers that mount on Model S sedans. Kinda hard to keep promoting it as the flagship when it will be 12-14 years in the market with no significant updates, other than the ones they can do over the air. The styling is going to look pretty dated very soon, especially as entries from other makers hit the market, like the Lucid Air.

    It would not surprise me to see Tesla announce in a few years that they will phase out the Model S. Sales trends sure don’t favor sedans, even at the high end of the market. It could be replaced with a crossover that actually looks and functions more like an SUV and leave the few remaining sedan buyers to the Model X since its basically a sedan anyway.


    2) I think they are competing with Dodge in an unspoken battle over who can keep their car on the same chassis for the longest period of time. Or, they finally looked around and decided that they needed to actually be a luxury manufacturer. Particularly with their flagship car.

    That could delay production a few years while they try to figure out how to integrate actual luxury features into their car. I think that Cadillac and Lucid showed them that they have a weakness that no over the air update will address. That weakness is that their $75k flagship car has all the luxury features of a Chevrolet Malibu. Maybe one day they will even improve their build quality to match the Malibu also. One can dream.

    2 Are you REALLY that breathtakingly DUMB or are you FAKING IT???

    THe BEST OF THE BEST, CLUELESS ONE, the ROLLS ROYCE PHANTOM VII, the FLAGSHIP ROLLS ROYCE, lasted from 2003 to 2017. ONLY THEN did BMW bother to replace it, and the VIII looks VERY Similar to the VII.

    WHy do you waste my time? You want to wallow in ignorance and ridiculous hate of the ONLY SUCCESSFUL US Automaker, the maker with a 75% Share of the BEV market? and instead HOPE that the 67% SAUDI owned OSAMA-ALQAIDA-LUCID motors ‘succeeds’? DO you know, other clueless one, Lambo, how big THEIR Delays have been??? THey have been around for a DECADE already and have not sold a SINGLE ONE of their miserable science projects!

    Do you clowns stick pins in an Elon Musk voo doo dolls in your miserable basements?

    PS You are REALLY clueless if you think the model X loooks like a….. Sedan?!!!!@

    It has the proportions of a MINIVAN, you idiot. AND STILL Tesla sells a ton of them at… $120,000, while YOU GM Bankrupt losers could not sell one even at $30,000 and GAVE UP ON THEM..LOL

  6. Alex Carazan Says:

    EV’s: Another day and another list of electrification push stories. USA now a decade into EV’s and 2020 YTD EV sales is a whopping 1.52% share. With no signs of hockey stick growth despite all the talk and increase in nameplates. EV’s are expensive, have low range, take a long time to fill/charge, and there is little charge infrastructure…long trips not practical. Fast chargers super expensive. But their “green” right? If electricity is made from dirty coal or other fossil fuels is the electricity that charge EV’s green? And what about those rare earth metals that low cost slave labor around the earth is mining….can you say human rights abuse? But only if we push another 100 nameplates on consumers they are bound to buy them right? How about we add pick up trucks and SUV’s and change $100,000….surely the consumers will come right? Right? Right? Or is this all for ZEV credits and regulation game? Profit to be made??? Group think? When will it end?

  7. Larry D. Says:

    PS idiots, the IMPORTANT, DO OR DIE, Models for TESL were the TRIUMPHANT Model 3 and the model Y. THESE are the MASS MARKET< MILLION UNIT models that made TESLA a MAINSTREAM automaker in numbers of units, DESPITE their high prices. a MONUMENTAL Achievement, but I never expected the usual Tesla hating idiots to even get a CLUE.

  8. Larry D. Says:

    6 another post, another clueless one. You have NO CLUE of US and WORLD automotive HISTORY. Look up how many DECADES it took gasoline cars to get that 1.58% share you ALLEGE from Horses and Buggies. DECADES. If not for Henry FOrd, it would have taken FOREVER. But I don’t expect you to know why.

    PS of that alleged 1.58, 75% are TESLAS and the PITTANCE that is left are YOU LOSERS, ALL OF YOU TOGETHER. Pathetic losers.

    PS2. The 1.25% of TESLA is MORE THAN DOUBLE the market share of LOSER VOLVO with ALL its many models, AND FIVE TIMES the share JAGUAR has. (most JLR sales are LAND ROVERS)

    You all must have an extremelhy hard time to understand why the hell, DESPITE all you hurl against him, TESLA has EXPLODED and the BRILLIANT ELon Musk is worth $100 BILLION and your 401k does not even have enough for a LOUSY HYUNDAI.

  9. Wim van Acker Says:

    @5, 7, 8: please check out

    You promised yesterday to tell us how much money you made on the stock market. Do you know it, yet, or are you still “under audit”? All of us utter losers can’t wait to hear the number.

  10. Joe Says:

    I for one would comment more often on this forum and I’m sure others would like to, but with someone like Larry D calling names like he does surely discourages people. I do not like name calling. I wish someone could ban him from writings comments on this site.

  11. Drew Says:

    @10 – Two thumbs up!

  12. Ed Says:

    Re old styling: I remember when Mercedes models lasted 10 years or so, your model lasted with better resale for longer. I don’t mind a nice ubiquitous style, if it’s nice and new, with the important safety and improvements where it’s needed. As a driver I’m behind the wheel do I really notice if it has a “ hot trend” outside? if it was good when I bought it’s still nice after all those years, look at all the vintage buyers / collectors. A classic will always be in Style. Look at the current resale prices for the FJ Cruiser.

  13. JWH Says:

    #10,11 – Agree.

    I will admit that since the infamous mr d likes to scream & yell, it is fairly easy to identify his rantings & save time by skipping over them.

  14. Drew Says:

    Why does he keep repeating himself? Does he think we are “L”earning “D”isabled? I hope his employer keeps him away from the students. Higher education is suppose to open student minds… not bore them with repetition.

  15. Kevin A Says:

    Sean, Is it true your advertisers pay you by the number of comments? That is the only reason I can imagine to let Larry D crap all over your otherwise good blog. I’m interested in the comments everyone BUT Larry D screamer makes. Any change you could offer a Larry free version?

  16. Ziggy Says:

    Are you guys hurting for money so bad that you have to hawk bus tires and Toyota trucks now? Shameless product promotion is going to drive viewers away, stop while you still have an audience.

  17. Bobby T Says:

    #9, Wim, I nominate you for comment of the month award

  18. GM-10 Says:

    5,6,7,8 – It is clear that you are passionate about Tesla. It is not personal attack on Elon Musk to say that a 14 year old model is getting a little old. On average, its 2 to 2.5 times older than the average model lifespan.

    On the other hand the Model S has held up pretty well considering its current age.

  19. GM-10 Says:

    meant 5,7.8

  20. FSTFWRD Says:

    @#10 +++++ John, get rid of this guy!!!!!

  21. Lambo2015 Says:

    Its unanimous. I feel so sorry for anyone that had this fool and an instructor. That has to be brutal to be stuck in a lecture hall with this guy. Probably calls his students fools and clueless too, if they didn’t agree with his every thought.

    If they don’t ban him, do yourself a favor and as soon as you see a comment save yourself the trouble of reading it.. I can condense it for you.. “me smart, you fools, Tesla is God and US manufacturers are idiots, I walk to work, All other EVs are junk and funded by terrorists and here come Elon, I have to go get on my knees..
    To pray?

    Are the main trends in Automotive these days giant grilles, huge infotainment screens, and lifted trucks?

  23. Kit Gerhart Says:

    22 It sure seems that way.
