    Takes a licking and keeps on ticking. Not much to do when you're on the winning team. Sit back and enjoy some spiked Gatorade while puffing on a left handed cigarette and checking out the cheerleaders. Boss is out playing with rockets and digging tunnels. Life is good.

    Ford is starting to look good again. Poor GM, same old story. Naturally Tesla speaks for itself.

    For some reason, people are surprised Tesla is removing cell production equipment from Grunheide and moving it to Auston.

    With winter and energy rationing fast approaching, Giga Berlin will be cripled. Giga Berlin will be under severe constraint this winter and will probably have production stoppages, during severe energy shortages.

    Meanwhile, in Austin, Tesla is financially incentivized to produce batteries in America.

    It seems pretty obvious. I suspect the Grunheide equipment is at least as current as the gear being used in Austin, as the production equipment was built by Tesla Grohmann in Germany so the new stuff is likely to be tested there first.

    With Q3 almost in the bag, we should have some new ATH production/delivery numbers within a few days.

    The good Ole Tesla earnings play. I say we top 106. Papa Elon has been awfully quiet lately.

    Shall we play the production numbers game? I'll start.

    Shanghai Q3 - 255k
    Fremont q3 - 152.5k
    Berlin q3 - 15k
    Texas q3 - 18k

    Total 440k.

    On the serious side I'll take some more notes.

    This really stands out and speaks volumes>>>Tesla is 1 of only 2 to not need a government bailout in 2008. LONGTERM shareholders have NEVER lost a penny of their investment. In fact most have been very well rewarded for enduring the growing pains and short attacks. Elon Musk has had to fight a battle most warriors would retreat from. This dude wasn't ashamed to cry over his dream and nearly went broke when Einhorn and the others tried to destroy him.
    These ain't GEO METROS :D Tesla is not a car company.
    This is a conglomerate with a huge and very powerful war chest full of stuff most could never fathom. This list could go on forever.

    All that for $ 248.05 bucks a share, I'd be stupid not to OWN a part of that company. That's my speck of sand in the parking lot and I'm proud to own it.

    Tom "Bloomberg Terminal" B16 is great to have on board, his due diligence earns respect.

    Easy, Spud. I don't deserve all that much credit but I appreciate your generosity. :thumbsup:

    Meanwhile, back at Tesla, it looks like Tesla is jacking prices on the SuperCharger network in North America and Europe. This is profound. It will generate massive amounts of revenue but it will also potentially reduce the desirability of the SC network.

    I believe the network can easily sustain the price increases but time will tell.

    Tesla are cutting prices on the cars, as well. It looks like more cuts to come.

    Makes sense. Seems all business models eventually lead to loss leader or low margin product with high margin necessities/services. Most people don't look into anything past the initial price.

    Although part of me thinks Tesla might go into solar production for their network and keep all the profits for themselves. Seems like a logical growth sector especially in CA.
