White Tesla Model 3, Aero Covers Removed

Sorry to whoever’s Tesla Model 3 this is but I had to take a picture for reference. This is a white Model 3 with the stock tires but the Aero covers have been removed. I thought the dark rims would be too contrasty against the white body but nope, looks good!

Who’s Ordering a Tesla Model 3?

With the official signups for Tesla’s Model 3 starting on March 31, who’s signing up? The reservation will cost $1000 (refundable) so it seems like a safe move to add your name to the list.

Is There a Moped Under There?

I had to do a double take after seeing the 2014 Scion iQ on the road. It’s so tiny and small that I wondered if secretly there was a moped under the exterior. Seriously, two of those cars could quite well fit into a single parking stall. So really, is there a moped under there?

Time to Change $AAPL to $TSLA?

With Apple stock prices running near $700 per share, is it time to sell off some shares and invest in Tesla Motors (TSLA)? The electric car makers still have a ways to go but have just announced two more upcoming models, an SUV and a new sports car. At around $30 per share, you could […]
