“"Right now, we're competing with Mercedes and Porsche. When [their planned $50k midsize car] comes out, we're going after Tesla Model Y and Model 3," [Lucid CEO Peter Rawlinson] said, adding that he expects Lucid's total addressable market to increase 20 times.”
That speaks volumes about Lucid’s current addressable market, i.e. a very tiny niche.
Lucid make a huge error by releasing one expensive high-performance sedan after another, when the market clearly wants low-cost crossovers and SUVs (yeah, I hate them too, but that’s what people pay for). I don’t think a cheaper midsize car will do them wonders either. They need a cheap crossover/SUV.
“Rivian, Lucid's 2024 production targets disappoint as EV demand wanes”
How on earth could this possibly have happened??? Oh wait, you criminalized practicing medicine, you far-right dumbasses.
"The number of obstetricians in Idaho decreased from 227 in 2022 to about 176 in 2023, a decline of 51 doctors, the report said.”
Meanwhile, the population here is exploding.
I want to see a Rolls Royce electric car that only goes 100 miles. If you are truly rich you don’t need a lot of range, since your chauffeur can go charge while you play golf or eat caviar. You don’t need speed, because you are in no hurry to get anywhere, lol.
If I find a way to get in a bike race tomorrow, then this is just carb loading, right?
Funny, Trump sneakers are based in Sheridan, Wyoming. I’d love to know how this latest scam came to pass.

NY Times - A New York judge hands Trump a crushing defeat in his civil fraud case, finding the former president liable for conspiring to manipulate his net worth and ordering him to pay a penalty of more than $350 million that could wipe out his entire stockpile of cash. https://www.nytimes.com/2024/02/16/nyregion/trump-civil-fraud-trial-ruling.html?smid=nytcore-ios-share&referringSource=articleShare&sgrp=c-cb
it's "Harvard" right?
I lucked out and found a mechanic who hopefully can repair my Faraday electric bike, which is one of the great loves of my life. Turns out that Boise has, what was, the first dealer outside of CA, and still has a chief mechanic who also loves his Faraday. I’m taking it in tomorrow morning to get it hooked up to the proprietary diagnostic cable they still have. Here’s my bike at its prime on one of our many glorious rides around Santa Cruz (this is on the UCSC campus). #BikeTooter
This is no surprise, but still sad.
Introducing: the Chrysler 911
Interviewed for a job last week, and now just in the wait and see mode, which is the fucking worst.
I picked up a friend from the Boise airport tonight. When I walked up to the waiting area there was an excited-looking young man with flowers in his hand. A tall, handsome man exited the terminal security doors, the young man handed him the flowers, and then they kissed for about ten seconds. It made me feel just a little better about Idaho, even if only for a little while.

Pretty sure Frank Gehry just does this and says to his assistants, “Go build it.”
I didn’t know there was a Home Alone 3 until today, and it should be titled: Home Alone 3: Who the Fuck is this Kid?
Did the other kid finally get murdered?
Bad day to own a hydrogen car, as 13% of all stations in CA are shutting down with no warning.
