    I think they have to put down 200K per semi for something that won't be made for 3-4 years if ever...

  5. Funny to watch Chanos grasp at straws on CNBC. I remember when he was trash talking TSLA @ 180.

    He'd be better off shorting GM @ 58.

    Musk misfires Twitter message with cell number to Oculus CTO
    Elon Musk gave his 16.7 million Twitter followers what he meant to send to the chief technology officer of virtual-reality company Oculus: his phone number. The Tesla CEO quickly deleted the post. The tweet invited speculation that Musk, 46, may have been trying to recruit John Carmack, the CTO of Facebook-owned Oculus, or was seeking ways for Oculus to cooperate with any of the many businesses he runs.

    John Carmack? The same John Carmack as Quake? Revolutionary programmer back in the day. First independent game developer/programmer to get a fancy sports car at a young age. Was all the rage. Neat!

    Are they going to have space x absorb this thing? Seems like I've been reading a few articles pushing the idea. I hope space x investors are smart enough to figure out if this is the right play (seems like it would just be a bailout of sorts).

    Elon Musk working on electric-powered pickup truck to rival Ford F-150

    Dec. 26 (UPI) -- Elon Musk revealed on Tuesday that his Tesla, Inc. has plans in the works to build an electric-powered pickup truck that would rival the Ford F-150 in size.

    During a question and answer session on Twitter, a user wrote to Musk: "Need an electric pickup truck please."

    Musk responded by saying Tesla has plans to roll out a pickup truck as soon as the company unveils its Model Y, which has been slated for a 2018 date.

    "I promise that we will make a pickup truck right after Model Y. Have had the core design/engineering elements in my mind for almost 5 years. Am dying to build it," Musk replied.

    When asked if the pickup truck would be similar in size to the F-150, Musk replied: "Similar total size. Maybe slightly bigger to account for a really game-changing (I think) feature I'd like to add."

    Musk has had a pickup truck in the works since at least 2016.

    In a blog post from July 20, 2016, Musk wrote about his plans to build more types of electric-powered vehicles.

    "In addition to consumer vehicles, there are two other types of electric vehicle needed: heavy-duty trucks and high passenger-density urban transport," Musk wrote, adding that they were "in the early stages of development."

    Last month, Tesla unveiled its plans for an electric-powered semi truck, which is already on pre-order in North America and Europe.

    More Model 3 delays.... production target now moved to Q2.
    If all else fails, Elon certainly has a future in politics. He's good.
