The interior trim is slightly shonky, but otherwise they're fantastic. Even a base-spec model 3 goes like a stabbed rat.

No, and no. Buying or selling a Tesla second-hand is a shitshow, so unless you're planning on buying a new one and running it until it dies, which may be rather less than the 20-30 years you used to get out of a car, you don't want to be involved at either end. Also they have lost the format war over chargers but refuse to concede and continue to use proprietary connectors.

I've heard that the workmanship on the cars can be quite shoddy and the interiors can feel rather cheap.

>The J.D. Power 2020 Initial Quality Study (IQS), released today, places Tesla at the bottom of its quality rankings. It’s the first time that Tesla was profiled in J.D. Power’s influential study of quality

>It’s widely regarded as the industry benchmark for new-vehicle quality. The key metric is problems experienced for 100 vehicles (PP100). A lower score reflects fewer problems and, therefore, higher quality. Tesla received an initial quality score of 250 PP100 – or 250 problems per 100 vehicles. Tesla’s quality issues are primarily with cosmetic items, such as paint imperfections, poorly fitting body panels, and squeaks and rattles – rather than core powertrain or infotainment functions.

>The annual study, now in its 34th year, measures components that fail and features that are difficult to use, hard to understand, or don’t work the way owners want. The 2020 US Initial Quality Study is based on responses from 87,282 purchasers and lessees of new 2020 model-year vehicles who were surveyed after 90 days of ownership.

The industry average is 166 problems per 100 vehicles, for context.

It's annoying, and it's an open source problem. It's basically where we could be if money was not involved as the primary driving factor. The nozzle to refuel your car is standardised such that can refuel any car, bike or whatever. Funny that. Pick any petrol station and you can refueled.

And to be real, storing hydrocarbons is miles easier than storing electricity.

To be fair, the Model S launched before the CCS connector became standard. New Teslas do have CCS charging ports and they'll retrofit an older model S or X with a CCS port for £300. Arguably they should have adopted CCS sooner, but they had a chicken-and-egg problem with the Supercharger network.

You have no way of knowing what they're worth because you have no way of knowing what features the car has. Tesla have a habit of disabling things and demanding the new owner buy them all over again.

FWIW, literally every other manufacturer has adopted standard connectors. There was another holdout but they caved a couple of years ago.

Look mate, the reality is that this Tesla/Apple-type proprietary behaviour is essential because nobody will ever do anything unless it makes a minority of the population grotesquely wealthy.

Is it not the case that the previous owners are taking those features with them to use on a newer Tesla?

About ten years ago Elon Musk was being lauded amongst my nerdy friends as an incredible technological innovator and entrepreneur. I don't speak to those friends any more so I don't know if they have revised their opinion, but in the time since Musk seems to have done everything possible to destroy his public image. I would never consciously buy a product from this cunt.

The premise underlying 'Glasshouse' by Charles Stross is that there was a cryptological culture war in the past (our future) and as a result nobody in the present (also our future) knows anything about what happened in the past (possibly also our future).
