Definitely the helicopter if it has enough range. I assume this was a publicity stunt that finally gives an excuse to take the police lambo out of the garage but I’m just saying I could see the conditions on the route being fast/clear/safe enough to be able to get a car (with police lights & sirens) to hit 140 mph Read more

I looked up the route from Padua to Rome on Google Maps and I actually drove almost the exact same route a few years ago when going between Venice and Rome. Read more

The computers are perfect, I’ve never seen one not do what it was told to do. You’ll notice that in real life, programmers actually include A LOT of bugs in their “final” programs which include a million edge cases that they don’t account for or even really stupid, simple logic errors. I think they do this to see if Read more

Unlike a normal tire, it looks like you would replace the entire tire/wheel assembly whenever the tread wears out.

Went on a test drive in one and the acceleration, especially when entering a highway/overtaking, was basically nonexistent in EV mode. I don’t know if there was an ECO setting that made it rely as much as possible on the electric motor but it was just not good enough for regular highway driving in that state.

According to the BLS inflation calculator, there has been only about 18% inflation since 2010 so you could say that people are spending about 50% more on used cars and only about 10% more on new cars. Assuming the original study isn’t controlling for inflation. Read more

Even today, I feel most new car buyers don’t replace their cars because it broke down or no longer receives software support. It’s because they want something new. When EVs become the majority, I assume battery degradation or faster “quick charge” standards might be a small incentive but I think people will always Read more

The article also mentions that the bigger rear brakes are for the Z51 package with the electronic limited slip so that likely means that the traction control applies the brake to whatever wheel is losing traction. Read more

I can’t divulge how I know this but they are making this actually. And you’re spot on with the underfloor fuel tank and transverse drivetrain. It’ll even have those extra/fake vents for aesthetics and a big, wide butt to keep the trunk roomy.

That’s a valid use case. Wish Elon would explain that reasoning in the tweet for us non-electrorific drivers but that would require consulting his PR department.

I doubt it's a lot of Europeans as it’s 10 times faster and much cheaper to just take a train if you’re traveling from anywhere within Euroland.

Maybe it's the angle but it looks like it has almost no rear visibility. The rear window is practically a roof.

They really need to add prop guard/cage thingies, that’s obviously necessary when human beings will be piloting/swapping batteries near propellers that are knee height. Would add a bit of weight further limiting the range. Read more

As a project manager in the regulatory affairs department of a major California water company, it is my professional opinion that you’re deflecting. I have more reason than most to believe that environmental regulation is arbitrary as every county I have a project in has their own definition of due diligence. Read more

If you NEED a truck, you’re not going to buy the model offered by an electric startup. I think their target audience is going to be the person who wants a third car and is deciding between an electric that is good for commutes and a truck for the occasional hauling they have to do. Read more
