"Our here and stay WanNa talk a little bit about any on Musk tweet from yesterday on Tesla potentially licensing its technology, and then we have a number of other fun topics to go through Tesla's ten q quarterly filing securitization of Lisa's as well as tussles credit rating, and also a Morgan Stanley note I promise it'll be more fun than they sound. All right. We'll start off with the licensing topic yesterday Elon Musk on twitter replied to a tweet from Tesla Roddy about an article which they titled Quote Tesla Obsessive German Automakers looked to solve multi year tech deficit and quote you replied to that article saying quote Tesla is open to licensing software and supplying powertrains. And batteries we're just trying to accelerate sustainable energy, not crush competitors and what. So this has received a lot of attention and I think caught a lot of people maybe by surprise but this is nothing new from Tesla. The same question was actually asked to Alana on their third quarter earnings call last year and replied quote yeah I think there's it would be consistent with the mission of Tesla, to help other car companies with electric vehicles on the battery and Powertrain Front possibly on other fronts. So it's something we're open to as a lot of people know we open source star patents so that does not serve as an obstacle to the adoption of electric vehicles. Solar power or stationary storage, and we're definitely open to supplying batteries and powertrains, and perhaps other things other car companies and quote, and of course, over time Elon Musk has been very consistent with the super charger network being available to other automakers as long as they sort of came in with good faith and did their part in expanding the network and things like that. He's mentioned discussions about that in the past. But so far nothing has come to fruition though another startup Boeing Motors did respond to John's tweet on this and ask if they could use the super charger network. So maybe we would see something come of that but getting back to the main point. This isn't really new though did hear mentioned specifically software which I don't think he has done in the past and he also responded to a tweet asking about if that would include autopilot to which he responded shirt all this isn't necessarily new. I do still want to give my thoughts on it as I've said before I think it's unlikely at least in the near term that Tesla will do any sort of licensing on powertrain and batteries. If we think about that, you must have just said on the last call that pretty much looking out in perpetuity their biggest constraint is going to be some part of the battery supply chain stating that another way that means. That every single battery Tesla can get their hands on obviously within a certain threshold in terms of performance cost Tesla has plans in place to be able to utilize all those batteries. They don't have access to mark up share with another automaker that is then going to apply their own markup on that portion of the vehicle cost, and then put that in the market at a much higher price than Tesla can do themselves by removing that extra layer of markup direct quote here from on on the Q. to call, he says, quote, the real limitation on Tesla growth is cell production at an affordable price that's the real limit and quote later on in the call. He. Then says quote like the thing that bugs me the most about where we are now is that our cars are not affordable enough. We need to fix that and quote. So selling the resource that you're most constrained on to your competition, which is then going to sell it into the market is completely incongruent with the goals of growth and increasing affordability. So that's my overall point of view..

"Everybody Rob our here today we are primarily talking about some news on a potential. Tesla Texas factory as well as significant price target increase on Tesla's stock from Jeffries tussle stock on the day to day finished up one point two percent to one thousand and three dollars, ninety six cents compared to the Nasdaq up three tenths of a percent all right, so we have some news today on Tesla's next factory in the United States. We've talked a lot about how it's likely to end up in Texas, although technically Oklahoma is still in the running, but today we have some information coming from a released document. The has filed with the Texas Comptroller Office discussing. Discussing their intent for the project if they were to build in Texas, I think Bloomberg was the first to report on this, but we do get quite a few new interesting details, the first of which is the location, the Tesla's targeting, which is an approximately twenty one hundred Acre property in Travis. County near Austin Texas. The location is actually extremely close to downtown Austin about fifteen miles away, and just a few miles away from the airport within a ten minute drive. Now it's important to note Tesla has not actually acquired this property yet as electric and we've Tesla. Roddy reported I questioned that when I saw it because these released documents are from. From a proposal from Tesla for tax breaks on the value of the property from the Valley Independent School district in that area to the tune of sixty eight million dollars, it doesn't make much sense to buy something and then later asked for a discount on what you purchased obviously better to negotiate before purchase so that it make a lot of sense I, didn't hear back from electric, but thankfully did straighten this out on twitter, replying to Tesla Roddy saying quote. Tesla has an option to purchase this land, but has not exercised it and quote I means Tesla has reached an agreement with the owner of the property to give them some premium upfront. Upfront to give tussle the right to buy the property if they so choose at whatever the agreed upon price is does does not have to exercise that right if they opt not to. Then they would simply just lose the.

"Token to his lawn network of shows. It's a network of shows. It's January seventh. It's two thousand and twenty and the reason I say it's January seventh. Two Thousand and twenty is because it's January seventh two thousand and twenty. Let's do a few showers a few letters to stop things often. Then some really interesting newsy items and first of all. I got a really interesting litter from Nikola Tesla and it says Hulo I'm Nicola Tester. I was testing my wireless power transmission and somehow move forward Ford through time one hundred twenty five years. I am typing this into a machine that is like a typewriter the characters show up on a piece of glass. This guy named Tom W made made it. So that what I type will go to your slate of gloss from this slate of gloss. He was listening to you through a speaking and a small glass thing that he calls a phone learn but it doesn't look like a phone. It has pitches and stuff. Why are you talking about me? Am I going to invent a car. Nikola Tesla No. You didn't invent a cabbage. You became a very famous scientists who work with a current electricity and then another famous guy. Many years hundreds of years later one hundred twenty five without a car company based on on a lot of your principles but thank you for calling in. That must've taken a lot of effort. That indeed was a letter from a Nikola Tesla. I'm not sure if it's a deep faker. We've been talking about the ongoing Disaster Australia. And I got a email here from trevor sparing spearing. Sorry trip might sorry might anyway. He's in his car isn't his model. Three and the car is reporting that it is a balmy forty eight degrees Celsius. That's about one hundred and twenty degrees. Fahrenheit he's over there in the street in Newcastle New South Wales and the FIS there are just so bad. Just go to video from a friend of mine and the FI. I just coming through the House through their territories just unbelievable like a hurricane a hurricane AFA fronting now the email here from somebody whose names I know. I've got to get fixed. The site do the website now which is a disaster tone if he paid to do And it basically says listen to the show in model three icon figured out. Well we are on spotify. We are on tuning or on iheartradio and aimed runoff tunes. So one of those puppies should be on your model three so go check that puppy at all. You can listen on your phone and then just merit to the cow but probably most people have spotify tune and we are on those puppies as the talk Tesla Network of shows. Let it he from Steve. Thane nothing and he. We're talking hello until ORCAS become electric. And he's like one of the key things you need to track. Here is the investment in battery production. For Known Tesla Tesla batteries is says that this is extraordinary and growing fast. And of course we need this capacity but goes. You'RE NOT GONNA get an AV future until all the car. Manufacturers Manufacturers are on board so that's the metric tests will grow and grow and grow. But you really gotta look at what's happening with the other car manufacturers news also saying in the EU basically it sounds sounds like a mandate that the comment is they have electric vehicles. So I don't know how many we have that here but it's pretty weak and so that's GonNa be a game changer. And then he was talking about sort of friend friend. You had a girlfriend who didn't care. ABC's at all until she drove one and then it was like oh my gosh. This is what I'm talking to me. That's the biggest thing I just. You know been friends for a long time. He got a model threes. I I count driving a car now when I get into any other car it feels Burkan. This is exactly the experience that everybody that drives is particularly attested but the truth lots of Electric Co's as you get in there the acceleration. It's just it's really hard to go back. Even though the Tessler at the low end is still a pretty expensive cow. We're we're talking thirty five forty five fifty five thousand whereas you can get into a camera around twenty five thousand if you're going to drive a camry and then get into a model three it's just an and the experience is completely different. It's like the cameras Bergen even though that's a really good So that's why people rub spend a lot of time and effort going. Do these drive electric electric days to get as many people as I can drive around for a little bit because that really pushes people into getting Yukos's one of the other things that's going to be huge big and lodge is it Tesla Roddy and others are reporting that on January seventh. Is that today. What that they're going to announce modal threes in China so like now they're going out to the public but apparently they're also announced model? Why now I assume they're just going to say officially? US We are going to build model wise in the Chinese gigafactory but they might put a date on it and that date might be significantly before they do it here in the US. I don't think so because the prototypes are all here in the US. And I still think they tweaking that but I wouldn't be surprise once it's pins down and they had done the gigafactory. Three China is able to produce the model wife faster than they can here in the US so we might have the situation with China's getting model y and model three and we are still not getting model y here in the US. It's going to be soon interesting to see what they say and I can confirm. I'm actually looking at electric article now. So January seventh gigafactory three in Shanghai. They are going to be doing more deliveries to the fullest customs. uh-huh and they are going to be doing some statement about Fechter modal Y so interested. Well I'll find it today but it's interesting here. Fred Lambert but who writes so many of these electric articles things that they're going to outline the timeline for model and that it should be about six months behind Fremont I'm GONNA say no not six months behind Fremont because I just think that they are so able to produce the buildings and the cars they have shown in China faster than the. US okay. I I might be wrong in saying that. They'll be a head because they're doing all the testing and stuff here in California but I think once they've got pins down I think if you gave the two groups the US group in the Chinese group with the fact that the Chinese have less overhead in terms of having to do the right thing for the environment. Whatever it is you've got to go through the inspection person stuff? I bet you the Chinese group can beat the American working group to production. I'm going to say first. Motorway comes off the line in China before doesn't use has that how is that has that. Oh Oh yeah. That was an Australian song back in the day. Let's take you out with House that who speak to you tomorrow so much going. Oh spacex lotion. About three hours. My time should have good last night. Sixty more startling one. Just one of those links is going to be met black and we're going to be following along that story about whether that makes a difference to your vision of the night sky with with the styling satellites which in the current form a bit more reflective than people like and are affecting particularly the astronomers.

"Is Jila twenty second and rebuilt light year. We had production Snafu so instead of this releasing at six A._M.. It had to come out later in the day. I know it's upsetting for those of you that were on your morning commute and there was no ill in daily online. It's just a travesty tragedy in said in many ways. Let's get into this. There's a couple of things going on this weight first of all in Tesla News. They're going to release their second quarter earnings. I think on Wednesday the analysts believe that they are going to lose money again but not as much as they used to so some of the analysts thinking they're gonNA lose about fifty cents per share which is way better than the over three dollars per share of the first quarter so if you'RE GONNA lose money any as well lose it a little slower than you were before. It's not clear exactly what the numbers will be but don't expect gigantic prophets is at least what the analysts is saying of course if to take what the analysts say with a bit of a grain bit of a pinch bit the lithium salt as it were often you know all over the place and over the weekend here in Los Angeles they did a little bit of a hyperloop competition. That's right they do it every year and it was a new record sit but that new record was was not as fast as people had hoped so the same group that one last you t U M hyperloop set a record of two hundred eighty eight miles an hour which is only four miles an hour faster than the before and part of the problem is that has now have been recognized for well is that this Hypol- isn't very long. It's above ground. It's basically to and it's like Cologne along with something like that. Maybe it's a mile on one point six kilometers and this is not enough to get up to speed and then to stop with their crushing so Elon announced via the twitter the day again to build a ten kilometer vacuum tube vacuum tube with a curve rather than the current one Myla so that's huge and big and they want to try and get close to that theoretical four. Four hundred seven hundred sixty per thousand kilometers an APP that they hope to achieve in the future so I think this is great for a long time. I've been thinking hyperloop tunnel. If they serious about this. Let's build it out. Let's make bigger and then if you're gonNA have other people do the competition and try trying to improve the technologies crowdsourcing as it were then build it longer so that is supposedly going to occur and we're going to have it next year for next year's hyperloop competition with the heat waves that are occurring in in the U._S.. Right now mostly Midwest and on the East Coast just terrible heatwaves that we are told we're going to see a exponential increase because of global warming the number of hot days goes from like ten days forty days as to some places one hundred eighty days a year. We might be living in hyperloop tunnels. We may have to go underground. It's a bit of a concern. It's a bit of a worry. It's very upsetting huge problem. Humans just do not do very very well in the heat and the heat index. If you've got some humidity and it's hot you can die super I and there's just increasing parts of the world which <hes> seeing more and more of these ultra hot days and unfortunately the modeling suggests. There's just going to be so many many of these that large parts of the world particularly during the hottest time of the will not be inhabitable humans going outside. You'll have to be inside or you will have to move. It's really really a problem and the modeling like I say is frightening. In the coming coming decades on the good news fronts. Perhaps the most exciting cal company outside of tests during the world right now is riven ravines all electric our won t pickup truck and our one S._U._V. Actually Not GonNa make it into people's <hes> <hes> driveways until next G. but according to Tesla Roddy that looks like the production line is really ramping up and while on its way to Fu productions over the weekend the company's official twitter account teased its manufacturing progress with photos of several all stamped metal frames hanging on REX's all according to test already inside of one of the facilities and then they say busy making metal so this is pretty exciting. You can go not already and can check out the pitches but this could be real you. It's really hard to start a company tests that was shown and although reuven isn't going to look into the many hundreds of thousands of these vehicles initially there only talking like I think forty thousand twenty to forty thousand initially if they can pull it up. I think it's a really great thing a car company. That's built from the ground up to make electric. Vehicles is really good. We're still waiting for the big manufacturers to really put the heads together and get their act together as it were G._M.. And Ford keep talking about how they're gonNA make these electric trucks and stuff but where are they. You know you should be able to shouldn't you be able to make these much faster than of tests on a ribbon but where are they so the truck market here in the U._S.. Has Cannabis up even though gas prices go up every year kind of thing slowly the big S._U._v.'s still all the rage here in California gas prices Inara of four bucks a gallon and usually what happens is the price goes up of the gas and in the Kasai's goes down but it's sort of buck that trend this time because the gas prices have been going up or petrol as you'd have been going up up up up up but people still want them some giant trucks. I'm not exactly sure why because they had the park but maybe you feel safer in them and if you really are a lot of stuff after hall around it's important but generally I don't WanNa pick cap. I WANNA little cow but most people apparently they want them. Some big cares so if they want them some because at least let's get them some electric because and let's make the <hes> energy going into them something that is more renewable because these big things like the Ram and all these other things get Malta Gallon equivalents in the twenties twenty miles per gallon equivalents so we really want to get the people that want the big ones something that will get something like one hundred miles per gallon equivalent of the electricity and make infinite by putting just infinitely renewable energy because these trucks. Oh my gosh they are not energy efficient. So we recorded a big show allowed show grand show yesterday with the boys in it'll probably come out tomorrow and one of the things we talk about the is <hes> supercharging and the supercharge network expanding substantially hopefully again this year and the fact that there is a new one in Vegas so if you get a chance go onto the interwebs and check out the new one in Vegas we really need is really very very renewable energy right and so even supercharge network which is just uses the electricity off the grid is only as clean as that grid isn't it depends on where you are as too much. Renewable energy is being used them but the hope has been the supercharge network will basically run off solar and batteries and we'll be overwhelmingly using renewable energy and this one in Vegas that is now open. It's three super charger. It has all the components of really what is that hope for supercharging network with lots of solar panels lots of batteries lots of really fast charging and if we can spread those everywhere all of the place now we're getting somewhere and in theory the maintenance cost will be quite low with that and yes you can still grid tie them and probably will but if the overwhelming amount of energy that is being produced and used is renewable than the supercharge network goes from fantastic as is a very useful resource to judge to super fantastic because it truly has become very renewable energy versus just relying on whatever's coming off the grid in that area which sometimes it's really good. Sometimes it's like a lot of energy that is from renewables rebels and sometimes not so much so let's build these up baby build a mountain on that note apparently is withdrawing or stopping those secondhand cows with free supercharging for life looks like they're going to get rid of that. People used just to go by an older Tesla and one of the things that really got them into it. Is that that Vin number for that had supercharging for life. It looks like that program is about to go away which is Ted said that understandable. They need money to put into the supercharge Chad genetic. I do not feel bad when I go judge and I get charged five bucks. I'm like please put that into solar panels and make more of these please please free. supercharging is a huge perk makes you feel good. I've got like four or five thousand dollars with free supercharging..

"German voice goes to heaven. He four Ilam deli contest than it with, you know, it's Wednesday. It's may twenty nine th year may twenty nine and you know this, this thing called model and the model X rods. She put the Mirage and you heard recently, they got a nice series of updates. So the model is an ex go sort of new modus with sort of more fixed batteries, which made him about ten percent, more efficient. So these now go from for the model S was getting three thirty five miles a now the new long range version gets three hundred seventy miles and the X which has to ninety five now. The new one has three twenty five so these significant updates to the range, right? And, you know, me, I love me some range, well, a couple of things have happened. Also brought back the more standard range version. So the S now has a standard range version of two, eighty five and x has a range of to. Fifty. There's nothing much new there. But nail. Yes. Now, after all this actually dropping the price. So x has been reduced by three thousand dollars and ex by two thousand dollars. So pretty significant price, drops now, this is sort of a constant thing. It's not a big deal the constantly changing the prices and doing improvement. So that's good. But I do expect following on from what Elon said in his Email to the secret Email, the leaked Email the Email that I was meant to be leaked that this might be part of how they can get to record for this quarter which would be about ninety one thousand deliveries. I think this quarter you're gonna see a lot of S's an X's sold. I think there's been a bit of pent up demand there. I think a lot of people have been thinking, we know this is coming. We are gonna have foster charging, and we're gonna have more miles, and it's going to be a big refreshing you. We got it now. The prices come down. So I wouldn't be surprised if they sell a lot, a ton. I wrote a large amount of SS in. X's in this quarter. And if they do that, plus, they continue to sell lots of model threes than they will break. Sid record which, again is just under ninety one thousand so ninety one thousand plus would be good. The sterling thing, right? So they send up the sixty sterling so now the sixty two of those puppies, up there and we've had some really fun pitches. There was one astronomer that took of pitcher with. He's basically telescope of all of the styling satellites before it started to sort of distribute in a big long line, and that was pretty easy to capture, and this genius like worked at where there would be at what time and was by a couple of minutes. But he captured this great pitcher, go chick that out on the interwebs. Well, here's a question for you. Are you ready? When do you think styling is going to start service like just start rolling out, so it's not necessarily lots of service to lots of places, but when you think that they'll have a website up and be able to start off 'ring service to these puppies. Two thousand twenty one two thousand twenty two. We'll get some news for you coating. Tesla roddy? They think that in North America that they'll be able to stop officer verses early as this year. What the what the what this year if they can put up another two to six styling launches with sixty set alight s- each in North America and some Canadian leads they might be out of start to offer the service, then and then step further basics balloon. They'll be able to cover basically entire populated world with as few as just twenty four launchers or about fifteen hundred styling satellites, and then, ultimately, they want to get up to the eleven twelve thousand range where they'll have full capacity the entire world at very high speeds. So I'm kind of shocked the little tight lipped about like is working at doing testing. No doubt. They doing a lot of testing. But I haven't been able to find much information on the interwebs about whether these puppies are actually working, but it's kind of stunning to me that they might be able to get some sort of. Functional service up and running by the end of the year. So there's a big difference between two and six launches a lot of settlements win at six knots many when it's too, so we'll see. And I'm not sure what will be the bottleneck there is that the production of the satellites themselves, is it just sort of getting them up into the Spacey's space with the rockets, and it's interesting to the not the only people that are working on sort of a global idea of getting settled around the whole planet. One web is also another one, which is a partner of Airbus and they're trying to do the same thing, everybody has their own sort of spiel on this, but reading through some of the summaries at appears it appears that styling is going to be the best because they're going to have the most, they're going to be a pretty low orbit, so that they're gonna have pretty short ping times. And the cost of them up, there looks like it's going to be significantly less for SpaceX anybody else because the vertically integrated they owned the satellites, they own the rockets that put him up there. And so in. Theory. They should be able to pull this off faster than anybody else at a cheaper price than anybody else. Although competition is good. So we definitely wanna see other people trying to do the same thing. So there is lazy boys goals by the end of this year, you might be able to go out and say, look, I live in rural America, and I have crappy intimate. Maybe I'm going to get styling. And I think I've said before on the show, I had one of the first Hughes knit where I was in Los Angeles. And this is like fifteen years ago, and I had terrible internet. And we have an engine, it company, and like I've got to get into it. So I put a big dish on the top of my house, and the internet excess was terrible. It was like one point five megabits and the ping times were terrible. It just wasn't any good because they're satellites were way way way way far away. And these lights that styling has a very close. So those Ping's really short. So it turns out, although the speed of light is very fussed. It's not. Fast enough. If you want to have a satellite file far away, you're gonna have long ping, times, just the way it works, baby. So grown, your styling, let's see. And I'd really like to hear how the testing is going, but I can't find much information on it. And finally, for this find these a really interesting article in tesla Roddy, and it's out of Germany. And it's about, well, it goes like this, this rental company called next move, and they're drawn a work at which is the best electrica that they might buy a ton of so that they can rent them out. So they did an interesting series of tests to look at which have the highest range and the most efficient. And they took a couple of S's, a couple of X's a couple of threes. They checked in the Audi e Tron and in through in the cheap one. What is it called the Hyundai Kona electric and at different speeds through different routes, they sort of sit these parameters like drive at one hundred fifty common as an hour, driving hundred thirty communist. Now. And have this much air conditioning on, and these kind of ties and all that kind of stuff. So huge study randomized trial, but it certainly should some very interesting things, which is those people that the model three is by far the most efficient of all of those cows. And in fact, the, the Tron not very efficient at all. Really? And in terms of range, if you just thinking, well, what people really want is just range than the s was by far the best and the on, and Kona were not in anywhere near as good, so sort of, on all of the things that they were assisting for in this little study tests, the one by a long shot. They had the most range, they had the most deficiency, and they would just sort of better as it were. Now. I'm sure you could then go and do lots of other tests. But for now in this thing, it's like, yeah, we kind of know the sterile ready that tests is way ahead of the, you know, the big automakers Honda and Audi when it comes to electric vehicles, they're just better right now. Alan will they sustain this lead a but I'm just saying. They're just bitter right now. Jim boys, go. But speaking..

"Hey, Jim boys goes Melania for token. Tesla tween as you know, we do too. Big shows one is free on the into webs on YouTube and on the store as it were and one we have behind the patron will. And then we do a couple of these twin is just to keep people updated. And again, you can find it on YouTube and the audio you can find on your favorite podcast plateau contests. So in this week's twin I want to go over some of the most recent news and chase them pictures and pretty things. And if you're listening to the audio gonna miss out on this, but we doing this on YouTube as well. And so the first thing this is from tesla Roddy, we love those guys. This is a story about the fact that the model three configuration is now open in both China and in Europe. And in Europe, we're told that the had fourteen thousand orders or ready. This is good news for tesla. Because as we expect that the number of cows the desire in the US has to go down a little bit. Then charter Europe will pick up although tesla. Has been dropping the price of the cowboy game to that by two thousand dollars and that mid range version is some improvements. So we might not see the biggest drop as I thought. Although the techs credits are going away which could be a big deal, but in Europe, actually in China, and I don't know why this is in China. They had these new era wheels. And we talked about this on one of the big shows last week. So let me show zoom in on that these era wheels on the Chinese version of the cow. We haven't seen these on the US vision of seeing these on the European version there are a little different from the era wheels that are on the model three here in the US. Now, a lot of people don't like these aero wheels. That again, this is the one here in the US. This is the Chinese, and I gotta say the Chinese vision. Does look a bit cooler. I don't know if there is good, but these era wheels give you about ten percent extra range. Ten percent extra range to me that is absolutely huge. So instead of the Cal going three hundred miles and can go three hundred thirty miles, for example. And I'd love to see these come back to the model S. And to the model X if they could pull it off. And I don't know why I know that when they head these on the model S, they weren't very popular people thought them ugly. But I think today people are getting much more used to these. And for me, personally, I've got an s that has about three tomorrow range if you could slap on these plastic puppies and get another thirty miles up to thirty miles and range have edit, and if you make him really pretty like the Chinese version dang do it. I don't know why they haven't done that. They must be good reason. We'll discuss it on the main show. Obviously, the big thing that's been happening in the last few weeks that, you know, this is the first week of the new year, and tesla had little letter that goes out that says, well, here's our sales for q four this is different than the owning co which we always cover in a lot of details, which is where Ilan and the team get to talk about you know, what they did in that quarter and their sales and all the finances. This is just a quick note to say, here's what a delivery were. So this is an article from inside EV's and the vital points of information goes something like this..

"Forty nine cents per share in after hours trading down zero point two percent from closing now. It's high back in the lets us Google Google. What was Tesla's highest stock price in the last twelve months? Sorry. I can't help with that yet. Why not you're not very smart, a, please? So I think that got us highs about three ninety and as low as two fifty we're back to three ten the stock market has been crashing in the lost extras been doing up and down, but it's gone down. But it's held up pretty well compared to a lot of other Stokes, for example. It's so good, in fact that this analyst fences from tesla Roddy, we love those goes that saying that Dan is that he believes that modal three demand is going to be really strong for at least another year, especially because of what's happening in Europe and China where they're studying to take owed. Now, they probably won't need to raise money, and he expects I don't know where he got this at least three thousand model threes week in Europe in Asia. And I say let's sixty percent of what they think they're current what we think their current production is right there. We think they're making around five thousand week. They have claimed that they can push that to six or seven. We don't know if they've. Actually done that yet. We'll find out very shortly. I'm assuming in the earnings call so sixty percent of the current Fremont production. If these numbers are correct will be getting pushed out to Europe and Asia. Yes. So easily by Ed three thousand a week to what they're already doing. Or is the American sort of demand going to start going down a little bit. They claim that they've been able to satisfy all of the US orders. They've done four hundred thousand of those puppies already know, but see that was a that was a global order number. Right. That wasn't a US order number. That was reservation number. Okay. So and I think it's on this because I just not furthest in Hanau because I've seen them getting model why this is for cod that everybody else is not making any more. This is a small sedan which Ford and GM and all these people say we just can't sell them in the states in the in the states..

"Going to try to be set free and Felix Vega or nine. Seventy WFL legal analyst is with us right now and Obviously he's gonna be looking for lower bail. And things like that what do you think's going to happen in the hearing this morning it's going to be interesting to see a couple of things one of the one of the. Things that they, mentioned in their motion was. The fact that sheriff Galtieri meet those statements of. Right after the shooting. That they could not arrest them based on the standard ground law, that's one of the things that are going to argue to the judge there are also going to say because there was a. Delay in the rest of Mr. Drake at between the time of the shooting and three weeks. Later that the bond is excessive in this case it's one hundred. Thousand dollars they also don't think he should have to wear GPS monitor begets out and also what's going to be interesting. Is that in their motion they said that he's not a. Threat to the family or the community within those three, weeks between, the shooting and the arrest. We know from the arrest report that there's other documented incidents involving Mr. Drake and a, firearm, one, that happened three months before in that's inconvenienced. Store parking lot so how much of, that the state's going to bring up in argue that he should the bond ship remained the same that's going to be interesting to see how they're Able to either call those witnesses in and explain. All that and how the the defense is gonna really tackled sheriff Galtieri statements and what's the state's response going to be too that the previous issues that you're talking about do we know what the issues were over. I know we've heard some things but was there a handicapped parking spot. Involved in all the incidents yeah just the one incident that happened about three months before in that same convenience store parking lot with Mr. Drake and it was a septic tank driver. There was there, and then they got into. Mr. Drako allegedly started screaming at him he went. Back to his car. Supposedly reach inside to the center console that spooked the driver he, then took off from the parking lot and that's when they say Mr. Drake has started yelling racial slurs at him there was. Apparently a phone call between Mr. Drako and that means supervisor later on saying you're like I. Didn't blow his head off so if they have those witnesses all. That can come into possibly evidence that the judge can consider today the other two incidents or two road rage incidents it's. Unclear whether or not those witnesses are still around Two of them didn't. Want to press charges and in the third incident the woman took off from the scene, before they, could get any more information so. They may have tracked them down, that's what it's gonna be interesting to see if they bring all this. Up today and they've pretty much written a racial. Episode into this anyway since both of these involving the Disabled parking. Spaces involved blacks and he's white we know for the fact that Mr. McLachlan's black I'm not one hundred percent sure about the septic tank driver, what if he was yelling racial Almost half to be exactly the beginning, assume that but you know that's what I wanted to speak careful about that one point but yes there is a racial element to it but however when. You're looking at stand your, ground you're looking at what, happened between Mr. McLaughlin and Mr. Drake, in those very few seconds that we have the videotape of and what led up to that. So in this particular instance it, seems like you. Know he was mad about the parking space and, then Mr. mcglockton comes out as we've seen on the video. Shows him to the ground so We know no words were exchanged. Between, the two of them during that time frame according. To the police report quoting to Mr. drako's statements so, whether or not racist gonna come into. Play in this particular case I don't really see anything it's gonna be, more about whether or not you know he was standing his, ground or he was defending himself when he shot Mr.. Mcglockton before we let you go real quick do you think, they reduced the, bond today and nine thirty I'm not one hundred percent sure. I don't, think so because the bond was set. At one, hundred thousand dollars by the judge already, again it's gonna depend on a lot of these arguments it's a very fluid situation if they do reduce it the judge might cut it in half so. He would only have to, post five thousand dollars to, get out but then they're going to, argue about the GPS monitors well so we'll be staying on top of all this morning happy.
