    You would think with all the money he's got he could afford to hire a decent PI rather than the obvious twonk he did hire.
    Asian women carry their age well but anyone who can't tell the difference between a 32 yr old woman and a 12 yr old girl needs to find a different line of work

    Psst - he's lying. He wasn't fooled by a PI, he's just a twat who posts whatever he feels like.

    JR put Tusk on a pedestal and was cringeworthy at times as he gushingly praised him.

    JR went out and bought a Tesla car shortly after the interview so Tusk is certainly a good salesman.

    Maybe like Gilbert Ratchet he can build a series of ever more improbable machines to get him out of fixes. In this one he needs a time machine to go back and check himself before he click post

    Far too many people are getting wrongly diagnosed as being on 'the spectrum', when the only spectrum they're on is the cunt spectrum, and I reckon Musk is double rainbowed up on that one.

    It’s just an angular steel box on wheels :confused:

    I see some of the twitter comments in the BBC article saying Musk has brought back the DeLorean.

    The low-poly design means it will run faster on old computers.

    keybored Well done. You remember cat good.

    I wonder how much Tesla spunked on R&D instead of just tracking down this driver and asking.

    People in the future will wonder how stupid early 21st century humans must’ve been to even allow that thing to be created. Whether it sells well or not, it will mark a low point in vehicle design.

    Be prepared for your great grandchildren to flash an image of that thing at you in response to any criticism you may try to make of their clothes/cars or music.

    I thought it looked appalling. I get that he might want it to look different but it looks like an 8 year old drew it.

    It also looks like no-one could actually be arsed to style it in any way.

    Just to confirm those prices - that’s what Tesla are offering to pay people prepared to be seen dead driving it?

    The specs are great, and the price is very competitive. $10k more than a petrol equivalent, sure, but the amount of petrol these things drink means you'd make up the difference in no time, especially if it's used for business. Any other styling and they'd have a hot seller.

    It'll sell anyway. Plenty of cars look worse than that.
