Humans are simply not good at passing off 80-plus percent of a task and then staying alert to monitor what’s going on, which is what Autopilot demands.” Yup - as a motorcyclist I work to get into an alert zone that allows me to process stuff without “thinking” about it. Read more

I do wonder if having fire and flames as the main meme for offroading, is a great marketing idea in the current context. But then again “Utah”.....

Those are super nice too. If I’m not mistaken the Bolt was originally either an Opel or Vauxhall design.  But it looks good to me, and it surely could always look better.

Funny - I like it a lot: a small modern hatch - euro style. Wonder if Tesla will ever make ths form factor.

It’s got something like 230hp and 260 torques delivered in an instant creamy electric way - I enjoyed the heck out of my drive.

The MR2 was a far more dynamic and interesting car.  I’ll hold out.

A brand new base level Crosstrek with the cvt should fit the bill!! It can be had for about $20k - maybe a little less. Not exciting, but immensely capable. I’been using one via zipcar, and it is a very easy car to drive long miles and has nice dynamics. I also heard they don’t even start until a dog is in the rear Read more

Boston is getting better, but as soon as pandemic restrictions started lifting, cars were parked in bike lanes, traffic was forcing defensive action, and the whole sh*tshow ramped up again.  For a while it was some sort of bliss amongst the misery.

Yes - wherever there is misery you will find the wealthy and the church flourishing. In fact I think you’re quoting Vatican III

Dunno - less power, less wheel and thinner tire - I think it would look better and be more fun - a nice Honda engine with maybe 280 hp. Of course the biggest mistake is they didn’t use the station wagon.

The wealthy have profitted mightily during this period of mass dying and suffering. Truly a sterling example to the rest of us to become massively wealthy as soon as possible.

dunno - never found his designs very interesting, and not sure they’ve aged well enough for this kind of treatment.  If your only choice is this or a Bangle style BMW - sure, but it’s not.

If I were to call you dumb as a rock, I would be insulting rocks.

EVs have about 6 moving parts and don’t need gas or oil.  Cost of ownership is very low, and Teslas lose about 5% of their value over 5 years.  Also, EVS are a growing segment already, and Tesla’s percentage of that segment is growing.
