Just curious. What would happen to the cars wrt OTA updates ? Would the cars be eventually rendered defunct?

    Then virtue signaling dumbasses that bought 80k lemons from a startup company run by a fraudster will get what they deserve.

    • Wow, some people. How do you live your daily life? Do you deny everything you see in front of you?

      This. I wouldn't put it this bluntly, by model 3 owners totally brought this on themselves. I will never allow my family to get into a car built in a tent.

      Haha virtue signaling. You do know that many people don't give a shit about going green but just love the experience of driving an EV.

      Also what is this obsession that everyone has about calling Elon a fraudster. Like seriously do you even listen to yourself.

      He’s legally not allowed to deny he committed fraud. What the hell are you talking about?

      I don’t think it’d become a lemon, realistically speaking some other company might acquire parts manufacturing and help with servicing, maybe create new ev cars of their own with the infrastructure. And with regards to Elon Musk, I’m skeptical of that guy too! Mostly after watching the boring company demo...there were so many things wrong with that prototype...it felt like something done just to raise money for one of his other companies

    The cars will continue to run just like all other cars. The software updates are great but not required. Car companies have gone out of business in the past. And will in the future. Also, there's not much required maintenance on Tesla's https://www.tesla.com/support/car-maintenance

    You will notice that there are only 8 things that you have to do with the car. Granted there are other things but Compare that to gas cars.

    Most cars don’t get an OTA update. And still run. Well.

    W(hy)TF will this be different.

    Another company would step in and provide break/fix support.

    I would say, it would be bought over by another company who would want to keep it going. The frequency of updates would drop significantly but not stop.

    Would also depend on who buys them as well :)
