Hybrid technology was just as revolutionary 10 years ago, yet people didn’t fall “in love” with Honda and Toyota, so I don’t understand the love for Tesla. It’s cult like. I don’t get it and never will. If I need to open my eyes to see that it isn’t a cult, it is just as fair for me to say you need to open your eyes to see that it is a cult.
I don’t test drive cars I don’t plan on buying. As far as I can remember in this thread I’ve never actually knocked the driving experience of any Tesla vehicle. It is true that the products that companies make are an important factor of why people like and dislike companies. But now more than ever, what companies “stand for” and all the other things they do besides their main products or services have become just as important to how consumers view them. Companies are more than their products. I wouldn’t mind going back to the old days where that wasn’t the case, but that’s not where we are now. Do you call me closed minded because I don’t like Telsa as a company even though I don’t badmouth their actual finished product?
What does losing money on Tesla have to do with achieving your goals? With being intelligent? Do you not see that you are extrapolating EVERYTHING around Tesla? If being on the money making side of Tesla stock is the defining characteristic you use to determine someone’s intelligence or ability level, then you really need to rethink your priorities.
