  1. Ron Paris Says:

    Wow; terrific show John! Kudos to everyone involved, particularly Don Runkle whose insights are every bit as illuminating as those of Bob Lutz!

  2. Barry T Says:

    I agree with Ron – the “deep dive” with some intellectually honest points of view is so refreshing!

  3. Robert Sauter Says:

    John… has it occurred to you that the giant vertical (my words) screen in the Tesla Model S may not be such a good idea? Nobody else is touching it. Maybe the horizontal screen in most other auto applications, as well as the Tesla Model 3, is a better approach! The first time I say the vertical monster in a Model S I it was completely out of place. Shock factor aside being first does not always work.

  4. Joe Engelhardt Says:

    John why do we let PC and racist intolerance rule. The RAM adds were wonderful, uplifting (MLK) and funny ( Vikings )! God Bless America!
