I’m thinking the tires were removed and replaced with something that wouldn’t blow up.

The tires are filled with nitrogen just like the Space Shuttle tires were.

Jeff Bezos owns Blue Origin and is the richest person on the planet.

Musk : batteries on Tesla will last about 12 hours. Then it will just be out there for millions or billions of years

I thought Elon would have sent the Roadster to Mars... He will need some wheels when he gets there [emoticon]

The third burn overshot the Mars orbit, so Elon may not have the Roadster waiting for him if he makes that trip.

This article has been a hot topic on the TMC forum. Many new Model 3 owners are not seeing any of the issues this report mentions which has lead to speculation on wether it was an issue with the first few thousand serial numbers or bias or who knows. There are a few things starting to show up in the form of software glitches etc. One drive motor etc. The patterns will start to be more apparent after 20 or 30 thousand are on the road. The highest vin so far is 8100 ish. A lot of people watching.
