  1. Mission E - Can it compete with Tesla?

    Automotive Off Topic
    With respect to the Taycan did you see those Twitter messages over the weekend from the guy testing one out and charging at an Electrify America charging station? If his photos are to be believed, and I assume they are because he was at an Electrify America (owned by VW) station the amount...

    Chows, check the proposed EV tax in Missouri, hasn't passed the legislature yet but there is a could chance it will.

    Chows surely you don't mean to justify the Oil and Gas industry just because people work in that industry? I'm sure lots of people worked in the Asbestos industry at some point from manufacturing it to installing it, doesn't mean we should support that industry. People can and do find other...

    Seems that Top Gear doesn't know how to launch a Model S :) :) :) https://jalopnik.com/elon-musk-is-beefing-with-top-gear-over-drag-race-betwe-1839509967 The good news for Model S owners is that another 50hp is one the way shortly for FREE! (Can't imagine Porsche EVER doing that...) :)

    Chows, There is NO proof that the doors could not be opened. The interior of the car has normal door handles, if the guy was alive, why is he not opening the door? Often times in crashes doors cannot be opened because the car buckles and the doors jam. You know what people do then? Break the...

    Chows the problem with MOST of these EV taxes is that they are flat taxes and taxed at a rate 2-3x (in one case 10x) HIGHER than the gas tax imposed on ICE drivers for the same purpose (fixing roads etc.) The other issue is that slapping a large tax on EV drivers is a disincentive to purchase...

    That video is hilarious, Tesla driver chooses a bad line and decides not to try and correct it. :) :) :) of course we are missing the specs on each car, conditions, drivers, etc. but hey makes for good Reddit fodder... would you like to see videos of my Model 3 SMOKING Porsches at this last...

    You WANT a network of "Stealerships" er uh Dealerships? Why on Earth? Do you like the haggling over the price of a car where the salesperson has to go talk to their manager and they try to sneak in undercoatings and GAP insurance to further increase the price of the car? I know of no one that...

    The article I saw was priced at $104,000 in the US with the SMALLER battery. Possibly UNDER 200 miles of range on the EPA test cycle (and real world driving). Slower than a Model 3, less passenger room than a Model 3, only 1/2-2/3rds the range of a Model 3, yet nearly double the price before...

    I did not say I wasn't worried about Lithium recycling, I am, but it already seems to be moving along in a positive direction and to this point has not had as big of an impact on the environment, hence listing plastics as a more pressing priority. I'm just saying if you gave me a top 10 list...

    While you do have to click on the icon that looks like a chart going up, you now get a menu that allows you to quickly access not only new posts but new photos and other new and popular items. You can always bookmark the resulting page as well. So yes, not a default menu item but part of a...

    Nope, you are stuck here, you cannot leave, you can check out any time you like, but you can never leave.... :) Seriously, the old site had a lot of duct tape and bailing wire under the hood to keep things going on a platform that was dying with plug-ins that were no longer supported and a move...

    BTW at 1500 gallons per minute from a fire hydrant, that means it takes about 2 minutes to put a car out, seems reasonable to me. :) :) :)

    I'm really more worried about all the plastics being dumped into the ocean than I am recycling Lithium batteries or that Lithium batteries "might" recombust. I suspect Lithium batteries are a bridge to whatever the next newer, better battery/capacitor/mrfusion tech happens to be. Meanwhile we...

    And everyone into cars knows that another gas powered car just caught fire while I was typing this message, but it NEVER makes the news... myopic at best... So who here is taking a ride on the Star Hopper? :)

    I think there is a difference between a 911 Turbo / Turbo S sports car not being used as a daily driver vs. a 4 door sedan. Don't Panamera drivers use their cars as daily drivers? Or do Panamera Turbo S sit around as show pieces as well? What's next a $300K pick up truck that sits around as...

    I think the Car and Driver review is better than the Top Gear one, but neither is that good of a review. I think they asked someone with little EV knowledge to review an EV and it shows. I'm a bit shocked by the conclusion that the Taycan is just going to be for rich playboys who own multiple...

    Look at the pics of the Taycan at the Ring posted on several sites, I posted one or two here, look at the side view, the tires on the car were NOT stock street tires. I don't care what someone's cousin's uncles's best friend told Jalopnik, look at the photographic proof. :) I freely admit...
