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?
Looks like Gulf livery to me. What a shame.
I agree that it looks really weird. Saw a white one on the street on Friday and I didn't like it. Egg is a great description @whiteslashasianBtw, how many Tesla drivers actually floor their cars? I feel like acceleration is one of the key selling points of electric and yet I never see Teslas zipping down on ramps or off dead stops. I do see that with other high performance cars (being driven hard). Maybe it's just that it has the ability but most Tesla drivers aren't...
RDX is pretty good bang for buck. Quite roomy too. I don't like Acura styling, but if people are looking for practical luxury, then I think it does the trick. TSX wagon is too ugly.
If someone has a 1stdibs code, they should pick this up:
Side note: How did "overnight parts from Japan" manage to stick around so well? It's really rather remarkable.
That said, sounds like a good car @white collar and not a terrible price.
@white collar, I would agree with @Dino944 here. It's def gonna be more expensive than a Subaru. It will not be in Porsche territory for the parts, but the services are nearly comparable (at least around here where BMW mechanic hourly rate is almost as high as Porsche). I think 3k of work (including regular service, oil changes, inspection 1/2, tires) is probably a reasonable estimate. If I had to guess, I would say $1500 worth of work to my '06 M3 over 2 years of...
Porsche is trying to do things to make everything a classic. Seems like it will be death by a thousand cuts. The collector market has gone full retard on these limited run cars. People charge a premium for the 50th anniversary 911, but let's be honest no one gives a sht. Queue the "black edition." Pass. GTS Club Coupe. Yawn. GTS Rennsport Reunion. Pretty stupid too, although at least it looks nice. The reincarnation of the 911 Speedster. Okay kind of a cute idea, but do...
