Re: TSLA showing cracks?

So what happened to the full self driving option? Is it now included for free in their cars? Did they roll the functionality of it into the "enhanced autopilot?" Or are they removing full self driving completely from the cars? Is it hardware or software? I remember when you went to order a model 3, you could choose 2 optional things, one was $3k and one was $5k. Now they just have the $5k option (or $6k if you do it later).

Re: TSLA showing cracks?

Fully self driving was total bull****, another lie from the liar and conman, Elon Musk.

Musk admitted a few days ago that the current hardware/chip can't do FSD after saying for years it could.

Today they pulled the $3000 FSD option they've been selling for years and promising "soon".

A lawsuit is currently ongoing over Musk's fraud with FSD. Might be related. Might not.

Re: TSLA showing cracks?

A good article that shows how everything I said about Musk is true. He's a total dickhead who has no real skills apart from well-honed conman abilities. He's incompetent at coding, incompetent at manufacturing, incompetent at managing, incompetent at details. He's brilliant at creating a cult of personality however that the media and losers lap up.

It's hilarious that their workers started using kanban boards, a part of TPS/Lean but felt they had to hide them. LOL

Re: TSLA showing cracks?

Yeah. Tesla actually had a shot without this loser in charge. His daddy paid for his early internet projects were he got lucky (in spite of himself - he had to be pushed aside by competent management as the business grew because his coding sucked and he couldn't work with others or change) and he's been incompetent ever since at anything involving detail or planning or requiring intelligence. With SpaceX he got lucky to partner early with a brilliant rocket engineer who did all the work while Musk hustled up funding.

Musk seems to be a great money and PR guy (he's got a very well developed hustle), perhaps a good energizer as the company mascot, but he has a pretty low intelligence and as an engineer and manager he's a loser and does a lot of damage.

Elon Musk needs an Alan Mullaly or Tim Cook to actually run the entire business while Elon goes out and promotes Tesla to sell cars. He sounds a lot like Steve Jobs in many ways, but Steve had the smarts to delegate operations to an operational genius.

Elon Musk is subconsciously a genius at PR. Nobody else talks about Ford / GM or any of the other boring car brands.

They spend 0$? on advertising?

The irony is this is a valuable talent on its own

Isn't this true only the second time around? Maybe Musk needs to get canned once to learn.
