    Thanks for another interesting show. Both John and Gary add their own pertinent perspectives on automotive matters and mix it up nicely.

    Tesla / Gigapress / Correction // There’s a factoid I’d like to point out – John was talking about Tesla’s new (Italian) IDRA Gigapress that had the potential to halt the entire factory’s work.

    According to the German teslamag.de, who were able to tour the rising Berlin/Brandenburg Gigafactory and do a Q&A with Evan Horetsky, the guy in charge, they plan to install 8 (eight!) of the giant Italian IDRA presses there.

    The idea is to make both the rear and the front chassis of the Model Y as a one-piece casting.
