    I'm not jumping into anything. Do I think it's a huge deal? No. Do I think that's why people have a hard on for Tesla? No. Do I think its notable? Sure.

    Lmao that's each of your replies is jumping on it.
    I actually agreed with you on the %, but it seems stupid, yes.

    No one has a hard on for Tesla over OSHA. The idiots in twitter who do are pushing rather pointless shit like this. Not the other way around

    Right, that's what I've been saying the entire time I response to this:

    Nobody ever said that's why people were obsessed with Tesla. He just made that up.

    Which is much smaller. So maybe 12k total? 15k max. Still a far cry from 50k.

    They have a higher than normal Osha complaint %. Its not a massive deal. Idk why you feel the need to run to defend it.

    And invented an argument that nobody made. Again, that guy probably has a hard on for Tesla. It's almost certainly for reasons other than Osha complaints though. That was just some shit he came across and used it to throw shade at Tesla.

    Bringing this up is an example of the twitter mass you're following and jumping in with is an example of them being obsessed

    I never said that’s why people were obsessed with Tesla, all I said is why is he using that as what TeslaQ uncovers? Like they are some beneficial good that uncovers all these dirty little secrets. That’s not what 99% of TeslaQ is.

    It’s been like this for years and reaching all time levels, and what have they found? 15 lawsuits, 14 OSHA complaints, and a weird security force.

    Rest of the time it’s just spewing hate.

    Ppl attempt to make it a massive deal.

    Kslim shows it isn't a massive deal, essentially agreeing with Dbl but...

    It's not a huge deal to me but it is notable. Again, if it were 0 or 1 complaint, Tesla fans would use it as a positive.

    Yes, he used that tweet as an example to try and make the point that they are uncovering deceit and shady activities.

    My point was not that they are obsessed with OSHA but to use that to act like they are do gooders that are out for justice is a fucking joke.
    That’s not 99% of them.

    I’ve clarified that point in several followup posts, you just can’t see past the first poorly worded statement.

    Ppl who like Tesla like their tech. The amount of pointless falsehoods from Twitter that are brought here show that.

    Anyone "pro Tesla" is 99% responding to TESLQ twitter posts ITT, not random OSHA stats

    Post anything remotely close to weekly Tesla going bankrupt from a guy with 18 twitter followers or stalking out Tesla factory lots and their cars in the road.

    You've got sales estimates, car costs/updates, and feature discussion.

    Hopefully they get the styling right.

    Big fan of the S and to a lesser extent the 3. Not so much the X.

    Yea same, the S can look really sick and 3’s without aero wheels can look good. The X, unless it’s the performance dual motor version I’m not liking, it’s like a soccer van had sex with an SUV.

    I like the look of it. Its beefy looking if that makes sense. Going off their SUV, I think it'll look more like a 1995 Ford Ranger though.

    I don’t know if you can go off the SUV.

    Everything Musk has said is its SciFi Blade Runner truck, and the teaser image has some pretty sharp lines.

    Given everything on the SX3 is curvy it’s definitely going to be different.

    Question is will it be a cool sci-fi or a weird mobile.

    Musk also called a station wagon an SUV so forgive me for not trusting his words. I'll wait to see it.

    Yes, he did what virtually the rest of the car industry is doing.

    Building "SUV"s off their car frames. It's not the best, but he's not really doing what no others are doing

    I'll be interested to see if in a year or 18 months after the truck is released, they use that frame/base to build a legit SUV.

    At that point they'd be in all legit car categories.

    S high end luxury
    3 smaller car
    X Small SUV

    Whatever the truck is
    That truck base and making a "true" A SUV

    But the "style" has been bastardized across the industry. That's my point. Most small SUVs are built of their brands car frames

    It really depends on battery tech advancements, the X looks the way it does because of aerodynamics to get more efficiency and achieve 325mi on a charge.

    The talk of a truck seems to me that they some new battery tech that will be ready in 2ish years.

    Not going over this again. We already had another thread where like 95% of the board agreed it was laughable to call it an SUV. Crossover or station wagon would have been more appropriate. Only the Tesla fanboys thought it looked like an SUV and that's bc you slurp up anything they say.

    Good day.

    Not wasting the rest of my day with this again.

    I said I agreed with you but that doesn't mean the rest of the car industry is doing the exact same thing Tesla did.

    It's because you can't understand the argument

    Stop with the whataboutism shit. I dont care about the rest of the industry. Musk says shit all the time that doesnt come close to happening. Excuse me for not taking his word on how the truck will look. You can take his word as gospel. I'll wait for real pics of it.

    "Well yea, Musk is often full of shit, but what about the other companies?!?!?!"

    Elon is a lunatic. I've stated numerous times and that Tesla would also be better off with another CEO.

    Literally no one knows what it'll look like. It could look like shit. As Kslim also said.

    He's in line with the industry on he's small SUV. I'm not a huge fan, as you're not. It doesn't mean he lied about it.

    There's plenty you can't realistically call his shit for.

    Lol the SUV/CUV argument back, my word, I hoped I’d never see this again. Just waiting to restart up the how many people got out of the Model Y argument.

    I mean to be fair to old musky a teaser picture of its already out, clearly some sharp lines on the thing.
