    One would hope that there are regulations in place to keep people that have defrauded others for billions $ from being in another buisness that could possibly lead to the same results.

    I'm not describing the fraud involved in taking $ for a 35,000$ tesla then never delivering ANY, I'm describing the paypal fraud, to the thousands of personal and business bank accounts that when connected to paypal were frozen by PayPal, leading to a class action case that Musk snuck away from by selling paypal.

    The word of the day....MARGIN CALL.

    FUD and more FUD

    There are videos of people that have the $35k car. Please enlighten us on the rest of Tesla's fraud. Would love to hear more of your FUD. You aren't earning any points towards being an ethical shorter.

    The 35000$ Model was never made, Musk took the next model up (standard plus), it has leather and a larger battery, he software limited the battery and loses-lost money on each sale, then he canceled the 35,000$ model, it was bait and switch, as now so is the semi, the semi just got delayed for a year, glad I canceled my semi order;)

    FUD, when one ignores facts they rather look like the picture to the left;)


    The only fud is the opposite of fud going on, the distraction-ignorance of quality control issues, the closing of stores, the firing of employees, the manipulation of the stock price by musk, the not bothering to notice the P/E ratio, what P/E ratio.

    Have they already sold vehicles for $35k? Yes. And will continue to do so. Don't lie, FUDster.

    Have you driven one? I have no quality control issues on mine. Don't know of anyone else that has either. No fit an finish issues beyond what I have had in any of my other vehicles. Until you drive one for a while you won't realize how much of a better car this is. Heck, the car they built in 2012 is still a better car than any other one available today. Get your head out of the sand.

    Just because they dropped it from the online sales doesn't mean they quit selling it. Call a Tesla rep if you don't believe me. There are videos on Youtube showing people that got the $35k version. But whatever. I know you will lie because you have a vested interest. It's a shame that PriusChat is allowing you to even spread your lies on here.

    Also, reporting your posts until you get removed from this site. Would appreciate it if other people would do the same.

    Folks, this is what a short seller looks like in full bloom. Uninformed, manipulative, and unscrupulous. Not pretty.

    Have yet to find a video that shows a standard tesla, all the videos I find are the standard plus with leather powered seats...sold for 35,000$, so, again, tesla is selling the standard plus with software limited battery range for 35,000$, that's a 4000$ loss on each 35,000$ tesla sold.

    If I could find an actual standard, with cloth non electric seats I would stop proclaiming "Bait and Switch", but all I state are the facts, with no emotion;)

    So because people are getting better cars than what they originally thought they might, that is a bait and switch? I'm confused.

    Look on your Maroney sticker of your Prime and see if there are any destination and doc fees. If they aren't on that, check your paperwork from the dealer. I guarantee you paid something similar.

    The listed amount is $930, but we were almost $3k below all of the listed pricing here:):

    I’m sure Tesla isn’t haggling over pricing like you can with the Prime(y).

    You can often buy some inventory vehicles below listed online price. That is what I did.

    Some people like the haggling experience and some don't. I personally don't, and I buy and sell houses for a living. Something always just feels off in working with the dealerships. I love the way Tesla does it. Much more peaceful.

    The only haggling done was at the finance guys desk over prepaid maintenance as well as an extended service contract ;).

    We cleared the pricing hurdle 2 weeks before buying :).

    So a pleasant experience as well(y).

    much more pleasant out here, when you can haggle 5k off, get a 5k rebate and 4.5k tax credit.

    if i could do that with a model 3, there'd be one in my garage right now ;)

    Can't reply to the post

    But, Brian is this your car? I see that you bought "We bought the Standard Range Plus Model 3 (SRM3+) "

    Which is not a standard model 3, it's my understand that the standard plus is being sold as the standard.
