Tardy Tesla

02/04/2016 10:09 AM

Tesla fans have waited for the Spring of 2016 with anticipation. Elon has had designs on kicking the big three in the shins with an electric car for the masses. today I'm reading about delays of delaying of any substantive reveal. sounds like Tesla. Elon has stated a few times he wants his Model3 to be extremely aero-efficient. wheel skirts? will it look like a solar racer, flat covered with solar cells?? info is only a tease and a trickle at this point.

Maybe that was the reason for the delay...The second one looks pretty cool...

I'm hoping to get a Tesla down the line. Not for the gas savings but for the good ride. A possible autonomous driving upgrade down the road seems like a pretty good perk as well!

They're still working on the reliability of the battery pack.

Lyn,

Although your comment has merit, the photo (an arc flash event in an energized electrical panel) has nothing to do with any battery pack fires.

When the delay is delayed you know there's a problem!
