993 is a great car, but it's not that great. There is a bit of madness going on here in terms of the masses purporting them to be this unicorn. Great car, but like 285 HP. And not built like a tank. Fairly reliable, but parts are getting way more expensive as the cars themselves do. Look how unloved the convertibles are. If the car were really that great, I think the verts would be better bid. ~50-60k can get you a lot of car.993 is vastly better looking than a GTR. I know...
I tried to hit Les Chouettes but I fcked up the timing and they were only doing drinks by the time I arrived (mid afternoon). Looked good though. Then tried to go to Chez Alain Miam Miam in Marche des Enfants Rouges but that line was moving at a snail's pace. Painfully slow. Looked good though. Ate at some garbage doner place instead. Bad choice, whatever I was hungry. Hit up Bistrot Paul Bert (2nd time there). Very good. Would recommend. Solid French cooking. Good...

@ramuman I actually don't think people in this thread are crapping on Teslas. No one is saying they aren't cool pieces of engineering. They are, however, offering valid counterpoints as to why Tesla may not live up to the hype or why it faces a lot of hurdles going forward. Personally, I think Teslas are another blobby car. They do nothing for me. I don't really care that much if people love them or hate them though. It's not much of a concern of mine. Not really anything...
The entire country of India would be evidence that no, honking does not decrease stupid driving behavior.
Looks like some whisper info on an Apple car coming to Motor Trend tomorrow.

It is a car company. It's not that revolutionary.
TSLA trades at something like 150x projected 2016 earnings. Maybe they trade like 20x to 2018 projected earnings or something like that. Most car companies trade like 5x (current) earnings. You could buy Fiat Chrysler, Porsche, Mazda, and Ferrari together for less than TSLA. Tulipmania.
@ramuman, I am curious about a couple things. These questions are serious, by the way. Why do you feel the need to blindly defend Tesla / Musk to no end? Do you see both sides of that coin? How much time did you spend doing critical thinking in your engineering program? This thread makes it seem like you fail to see any of the downsides of the company, the leader, the product. Is that true?
