There's a Tesla about......

on Sun Apr 15, 2018 9:53 am
We had new neighbours move in 2 doors down this week. They have a Tesla S 75 - looks nice in black, but it has the standard wheels with red rim protectors. They look much better with the 21" wheels. So, in terms of keeping up with the Jones', I no longer have the fastest car!!!! Well up to 60, maybe.....

Anyway I did get to wash both cars yesterday, and "fed the leather" seats in the Jag......

the new exhaust looks good too.

Quite a few Tesla’s locally here too - in fact the party the kids went to yesterday, Barnabus and Rainbow (twins) ... they have an amazing house, and a dark blue Tesla

Fairly.

The road goes down, and then there is a steep kerb up in to my driveway.

My names Mogs.

Some ones borrowed the MX5 and parked up the Porsche.

No Tesla's in a shared parking place I have a space in there's nearly 100 cars down there. There is / was a Zoe. 2 BMW i3 parked up outside Siemens my next door factory always parked. Might be there so they look green.

I cannot STAND those half car half van things Evil or Very Mad

They are spawned from hell to torture the likes of me.

Got my sis a proper Smart car, a for four. It looks like a proper car, 4 seats and a reasonable length....Not to mention a 1334cc engine that goes like shite off a chrome shovel.

Some tool in one of those fugly half car half vans thought he's race me... He lost...at least four times Laughing

Sorry Huge, much as I respect you, I cannot respect that "thing" next to the Jaguar Mad

It's a great wee thing, and 112 BHP/tonne it goes ok too.

That's the second time you've mentioned my Range Rover!

Anyone would think you were jealous Rolling Eyes

Really, don't be, it's 18 years old (although immaculate).

You should be more jealous of my Jaguar XK8 as it has barely 35,000 miles on it Wink

Locked up in my garage Hugh. Needs a couple of little things done before I sell it...or not! I think this car may yet become valuable. As it is, if it is fully working with a years mot they are still fetching 12k with spaceship miles so mine with 35k and FSH may yet be worth something.

I can’t see it being worth anything in the future over and above your costs mate ...

If you wanted your Jag to become an investment, i’d sell it and use the proceeds to buy Gold and Silver .... that’s where my BMW money is at the moment.

I didn't mean it like that Laughing

What I meant was, it'll be worth more than others of the same age or something like that pirat

Possibly, but I don’t see it being an appreciating car over time .... well, not a sensible amount of time anyway.

Was talking to someone about 997 Porsche’s the other day (he was a dealer), and I asked him if the 997 would appreciate over time, and his answer was maybe a little .... but only the very special limited edition, or high end (GT3) ones ....

His point was that cars are made in such volume these days, that only the real high end ones appreciate now ...

and my take on it is that to some extent, our generation are buying cars we lusted over when we were kids - we are the demand.

Kids don’t lust over cars in the numbers we did - it’s a dieing hobby - so for
Me, supply is up, demand will be going down - equals no money.

Kids have been brainwashed at school in to thinking cars are bad.

OK I thought the most sensible thing someone said about electric cars is they will run on anything that makes electric energy, from the cleanest wind farm to the dirtiest coal burner. Giving drivers the most available source of power for cars.

The cost of energy is trending to zero according to a lady I listened to from RWE.

Electric cars will be a no brainer.

But the combustion engine cars will survive as old timers. just as today.

What a happy world it will be....

I tbink the dealer is wtong LK. Look at cars like the 205GTi, Mk1/2 Golf GTi etc. Cars that were made in their 1000s that are now worth decent money..I see no reason why a good XK8 won't go up in value, or a 997. Personally I don't think that guy knew what he was talking about.

I can’t work out if you are disagreeing because that is your automatic reaction, or whether you can’t read Smile

Those are icon cars for starters - but also, the best of that breed.

As I said - 997’s and Jags will appreciate - but they’ll have to be the best of the best ones .... and actually turn out to be icon cars .... the cooking 997’s and XK8’s are neither ...
