so firmware that is installed OTA can determine how fast the car can brake....sounds like an invitation for hackers to tap in and cause mass mayhem

Tesla is actually way better at netsec than other autos. As bad as they are at mass production, they are in another league when it comes to the vehicle computers, in both functionality and security.

Fiat Chrysler.. not so much. In fact, your mass mayhem scenario could have been made to happen easily with a couple million Jeeps and other Fiat/Chrysler vehicles in 2015.

Great and hilarious talk of how these guys could take over millions of vehicles remotely (including controlling braking.. and steering... and gas...). If you have 45 minutes to spare, this is a great talk to watch:



Another talk at the same con where they tried to hack a Model S. Pretty boring, basically an ad for how good Tesla security is:

Jack Rickard posted his notes from his in-progress teardown. He is very impressed with the battery.

http://evtv.me/2018/05/tesla-model-3-gone-battshit/

"But I guess what I was expecting was a tamed down/toned down Model S – smaller, less power, but basically a miniS for the masses. And I was hoping the disappointments would be minimal and mostly about things I didn’t care about too much."

"But the really stunning thing is that ALL electronics and technology in the Model 3 are VERY next generation with NOTHING familiar from the Model S in any way shape or form. I haven’t seen ANYTHING even vaguely Model S or X in the vehicle. NOTHING. No DNA found. And the improvement, from what I can tell at this early stage, is not at all incremental. It’s like its from another planet."


"The combined charger/dc-dc converter is a thorough MARVEL inside. We will be looking more closely at this in the future but it again has NO apparent relationship to any previous Tesla charge circuitry, and they squeeze 10kW of charger into a remarkably small and cool running package."

"And so my assertion in the video and more emphatically so at this point, given the level of advanced technology and integration I’m seeing in this battery assembly, and assuming the same level of effort from the Panasonic team at the chemistry/cell level, this is the BEST most ADVANCED large scale lithium battery every produced on planet and is YEARS ahead of anything currently in work. Tesla appears to be saying to the rest of the industry, “We’ve upped our game… so UP YOURS!”

Internal documents reveal Tesla is blowing through an insane amount of raw material and cash to make Model 3s, and production is still a nightmare

Tesla is wasting a jaw-dropping amount of raw material and cash to make the Model 3.

Internal documents reviewed by Business Insider show that the company expects that as much as 40% of the raw materials used to produce batteries and driving units manufactured at Tesla's Gigafactory in Nevada need to be scrapped or reworked by employees before they are sent to Tesla's factory in Fremont, California, and assembled into Model 3s. The documents were dated in the first quarter.

That is to say, for every 2,500 battery packs and driving units that leave the Gigafactory, an additional 1,000 pieces of "nonconforming material" is created. Half of that will be reworked and put into other car parts. The other half becomes scrap.

Tesla has spent almost $150 million on scrap materials so far this year, according to internal estimates Business Insider has seen. That number does not include the overhead cost of creating that scrap (energy, labor hours, etc.). Tesla reported manufacturing 9,766 Model 3s in the first quarter of this year.

https://arstechnica.com/cars/2018/06/tesla-is-laying-off-9-percent-of-its-workforce/?comments=1

A sign they are committed to profitability? Or is it an omen of bankruptcy?

Maybe shedding the solar city cruft.

Interesting retrospect on cashflow in that article:
