Porsche 911 Fanatics & Volvo Fanatics Become Tesla Model 3 & Model S Fanatics — Teslas Are Just That Good

There are a lot of anonymous and a few non-anonymous anti-Tesla trolls on the internet. Whether they are connected to the oil industry, work for traditional auto companies, or simply picked up an odd prejudice against clean electric cars, they seem to be obsessed with Tesla articles, to the point that they have to comment on hundreds of those articles despite not liking the company. One of the favorite tools of the Tesla smear is calling people who recognize the benefits of Tesla vehicles “fanboys” (often with the implication that they’re idiots and have no good reason to be “fanboys”)

If you’ve ever ridden in a Tesla vehicle featuring the company’s white vegan leather seats, you were surely impressed. They’re as soft as a cloud. They’re as white as Conan O’Brien’s grandma (I assume). Beyond the smooth surface, they’re so cushy you feel like you just sat on the marshmallow man.

Tesla Bioweapon Defense Mode With Memory, Smart Powerwall Storm Watch, & Tesla’s Software DNA

A few weeks ago, a Rich Stefani tweeted something to Elon Musk. Highlighting just how abnormal Elon Musk’s Twitter habits are — and just how atypical Elon is — he responded to this gentleman. I use the words “abnormal” and “atypical” because Rich has just 23 followers (and has only tweeted 29 times). It’s not normal for a billionaire CEO with 25.6 million followers to care much about what people tweet his way, let alone respond to them. It’s not typical for a billionaire CEO to spend a lot of time conversing with the unwashed masses (no offense, Rich). Though, it is typical for Elon

A Field Guide To Potential Securities Violations By Tesla’s Foes — In Depth

A great deal of attention has been recently placed on the conflict between Elon Musk and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) regarding certain tweets by the CEO of Tesla. What is not clear to many, however, is the extraordinary number of potential securities violations that are happening regularly with regards to Tesla’s stock (NASDAQ: TSLA) that are the work of individuals opposing Tesla’s success.

Tesla’s Push To Change The World Is Changing The Minds Of Mainstream Analysts

The mainstream media normally compares Tesla to other automotive companies, but since the Tesla earnings call this week, we are seeing a lot more discussion and analysis of the company that strives to not put it into a box. Tesla is largely a software-enabled battery company that rolls its batteries into cars and stationary energy storage products powered by the sun. That new categorization has continued to scramble the brains of analysts the world over
