I find it really funny how many people simped for the Cybertruck and called everyone who thought it was going to be crap a hater. Something Tesla still hasn't learned after all this time is that building a vehicle is hard, which is why many car companies have been around for around 100 years.
 
Although a truck, it looks more like a mutant DeLorean than an El Camino. But it's more likely to have incels inside than deplorable Trumpers, Venn diagram notwithstanding.

The main difference being that the DeLorean was styled by a famous Italian designer, and the Cybertruck was styled by someone who probably only knows what Italy is because it was printed on the lid of a pizza box.

To be honest, I would image that Musk and a lot of 'libertarian free thinkers' think SPQR is some deep, ethereal eiphany that "you probably wouldn't understand" and have some wanky obsession with the Romans.

Yeah.


For real though, the designer also did this...

.. so not all bad.
 
I refer back to this:
Zuckerberg is a robot who's into krav maga and Musk is basically The Newborn from Alien Resurrection but human-sized. It'd be like watching Data in Tsunkatse against a Pakled.
 
The U.S. Supreme Court has declined to review Elon Musk's appeal against an SEC settlement requiring a lawyer to pre-approve his public communications about Tesla. This decision upholds the appeals court's ruling that the provision does not violate Musk's free speech rights. The agreement stems from a 2018 incident where Musk's tweet about securing funding to privatize Tesla led to SEC charges of misleading statements.

Let me guess, Alito & Thomas have gone woke?
 

When the Texas gigafactory was still under construction before its 2022 opening, Elon Musk promised it would be an "ecological paradise" with walking trails for the public along the neighboring Colorado River.

I just watched a great documentary about another company that thought because they employed many people and the jobs were good for the local economy that they weren't responsible for what happened years later. That company was Hooker Chemicals and the place was Love Canal. This feels a lot like that. Elon trying to get out of those "pesky anti-business" environmental regulations.

 
Elon Musk has unexpectedly disbanded the team responsible for Tesla's electric vehicle charging operations, a move that caught both the automotive industry and analysts by surprise. This decision came despite partnerships formed last year with major automakers like GM and Ford, which had planned to provide their customers with access to the Tesla Supercharger network. The affected automakers have stated that they are not changing their current plans. Musk has indicated that Tesla will still expand the Supercharger network but will shift its focus towards maintaining existing stations and ensuring their reliability.

The layoffs included the dismissal of Rebecca Tinucci, the head of the charging business, and most of her team. This has led to uncertainty about the future operations and expansion of the Supercharger network. Despite the layoffs, industry experts speculate that Musk may reorganize the team to operate more efficiently and cost-effectively. This restructuring comes amid Tesla reporting lower profits and a decline in revenue, suggesting a strategic shift to manage costs more tightly. Musk's focus seems to be pivoting towards high-growth areas like artificial intelligence and robotics rather than the Supercharger network, which he might view as a non-essential legacy business.


EDIT. Footnote:
Tesla has received government funding through the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) program, aimed at developing a nationwide EV charging network. The company was awarded $17 million to build 41 charging stations across various states. This funding is tied to specific requirements, including making the stations accessible to all electric vehicles, not just Teslas. This aligns with broader federal goals under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to promote widespread EV use by building half a million chargers by 2030.

Despite these commitments, Tesla CEO Elon Musk recently disbanded the team responsible for the EV charging infrastructure at Tesla, raising concerns about future expansion and maintenance of the Supercharger network. However, Musk has indicated that the company will continue to expand the network, focusing on existing station reliability rather than new locations.
