Maybe it's confidence to take all the 'you're a *****' comments for driving a hybrid.

Seeing reports that some Chevy dealers are now taking orders on the Bolt.

Also, US sales numbers were leaked and the Tesla Model S is killing the rest of its peers in the price category:

They don't make that one anymore, unless you mean buying used. The two P models currently available are the P90D or the P100D.

Ah, now I see why its more than I remember. Its their next gen version and they more than doubled the price. Not sure what they are thinking. Xtrac, you could buy a P100D to commute in and your dream 458 Speciale and still have plenty of money left over. Edit: and first deliveries aren’t expected until Q4 of 2019.

Genovation wants to sell you an all-electric Corvette for $750,000 - Autoblog


Genovation wants to sell you an all-electric Corvette for $750,000

Or roughly three times the price of a Ferrari 488GTB.

Genovation Cars currently holds the world record for the fastest street-legal electric vehicle with its Genovation Extreme Electric car. The GXE, which costs $330,000, managed to hit 205.6 mph earlier this year. Now, the Rockville, MD-based company is accepting pre-orders for its next-gen GXE, and it's getting a sizable price hike to $750,000.

The current GXE is based on the previous generation of the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 and features a 44-kWh battery pack, near-50/50 weight distribution, and a motor putting out roughly 600 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque. The all-electric machine takes less than three seconds to get to 60 mph and has a range of roughly 130 miles – with a light foot. While those are definitely impressive figures, the next-gen GXE sound just slightly better.

The upcoming GXE will utilize the C7 Corvette Grand Sport as its starting point and uses improved battery management to boost power to 660 horsepower, while torque remains the same. The 50/50 weight distribution as well as maximum range will remain the same as on the current GXE. Genovation claims the exterior, which is rendered above, will be modified using green composites, and it and the interior will be uniquely designed on each copy. The car is likely to be lighter, as the Corvette shed weight from the C6 generation to C7, which will of course improve performance.

While the new Corvette Grand Sport is an incredible base to build off of, it's tough to see how the electric car is worth roughly 11 times as much as the gasoline-powered model and about twice the previous GXE. The one-off nature of the design has something to do with that, as does the limited run of 75 cars. And those throwback round taillights are pretty cool. Anyone who wants to get in line will have to fork $250,000 over to reserve a spot, and Genovation plans to deliver the cars at the end of 2019.

We'd bet the $750,000 price tag that Gene=ovation will make yet another record attempt with this new model once it becomes reality. You have to figure those bragging rights will be worth something, too.

Buying a six figure car with no collector's value and no chance of appreciation is equally crazy.

Unless you are just swimming in disposable cash this is really a terrible car to buy. It's a Prius for people with a soul.

You just described 99% of cars in the six figure price range. An expensive luxury car is rarely a wise financial decision. Although a Tesla is likely far less unwise than most, as the running costs and resale value are far better than the European competition.

I'm just saying leasing a Leaf or a Bolt might not be a bad idea, depending on the terms, but a lease on something in this range isn't likely to be a good deal.

that facepalm doesn't mean ****. What are the 3rd parties saying about sales figures?

If those statistics are from Tesla, which is how I understand this, how is it not "hype?" Of course the numbers were "leaked." Leaked insinuates that this was confidential data and some employee slipped up and it got out.

LOL

Dem trustworthy, reliable sales figures straight from Tesla PR.

Even in their SEC filings, deliveries and sales are listed as "approximately" this or "estimated" that. LOL

That is your smoking gun?

So you are trying to say that the qualifiers they use to account for a variability of maybe a few dozen units is actually proof they are fudging the numbers by thousands?

I think we found our replacement for .coolguy folks lol.
