When I saw a post above about dog mode, until I looked at the article I wondered if it would be for the car to go very slowly while taking the dog for a walk alongside.

Looks like TESLA have found a new revenue stream

Out of warranty chips at $1800 a shot, (plus labour, plus VAT or the equivalent no doubt).

"Ditch your Car"

Lyft Says Ditch Your Car (and Ride in Ours), Teams with Carvana Used-Car Buying Service

Could be a while before the concept gathers pace and reaches rural Northumberland, but its happening in San Francisco, Los Angeles and Chicago.

I think you have to come to the conclusion that TESLA do not feel the need to make short-term profits for their shareholders, and continue on their development phase of their worldwide investment and expansion, heading for Berlin now. The investors still have confidence as of now.
