    No, Elon is personally. Nobody knows what the point is that triggers a margin call on his loans. $100, $200, $250, all speculation. When it triggers and he's forced to unload shares at a high volume, that's a problem. Even Tesla identified this as a risk as far back as 2017 in their filings and stepped in to limit the maximum exposure Elon has with the stock as collateral to lower the risk.

    May be he's ready to pull a Gestalt.
    I think there is enough information in this article to figure out a pretty accurate ballpark on the margin call

    Most lenders will do 50-80% LTV on these sorts of share backed loans

    Well this is hilarious but also kinda ridiculous. The CEO of SpaceX may be about to lose his U.S. security clearance, all because of that one infamous puff.

    That will amount to nothing. Demo-1 just succeeded and China and Russia are both super jelly. Especially Russia as they are about to lose the privatize space race and the west doesn't need to hitch a ride on crappy Soyuz any more.

    Now the question is will US revoke his access due to his Tesla side of business in China where Chinese government may force some Space-X secret out of him to allow him to continue to sell in China. That's a risk.

    Where do Tesla owners in Calgary go for service? There is no center on their interactive map, and I read Rage2 someplace had written that store in Calgary is closed or closing, as are most others. Ya, buying a 6 figure+ car online is swell, but wtf do you do when it breaks? After having a hybrid plug in Pacifica for a week, I really dug the whole plug in at night and drive all day in the city without the gas motor lighting up once experience, and when we bought our Lexus the Tesla 4 door was something we'd considered having been passengers in one once.

    This whole "close all our dealers in order to balance $ enough to sell your $35k car" sounds ridiculous to me, seriously, where do owners go for service then, if there are no dealers?

    ^^^ They are not closing their service centres, just most of their stores, which are kinda useless since most of their sales are online anyway.

    Calgary's Tesla service centre on Fairmount Dr. will remain open but the "store" in Chinook will close.

    According to Musk, they plan on opening more service centres.

    I have a mobile tech come to my house. I have only ever had one minor cosmetic issue with the car and it was quickly dealt with. I don't know if the mobile service is only because I don't have a service center close.

    Ah, ok, thanks - I looked for 20 mins and couldn't find any specific info about service centers opening/closing with dealers in Canada. Got a ton of info about the mobile service, which said 3/4 of the problems they can deal with, but my fortunes with cars tend to lean towards the other 1/4, hence the concern. Maybe I've become a bit gunshy after going down the Youtube rabbit hole on Rich Rebuild's Tesla channel.

    I realize all the negatives people throw at them, but once I drove in one I was pretty much sold on the idea AND the car, it was really incredible, especially the acceleration and all the tech gadgets. The lack of support was the one thing that kept us from driving 7 hours to go test one out as when we bought our Lexus LC500 we were committed to SASK for another year at least. Back in Calgary this year, and we'll look at all the Tesla models, I wouldn't even mind the entry level car, as I like I said I really liked the plug in Pacifica van we had for bombing around town. Would still rather have the P100 though, we'll see.

    It's weird how terrible they are at providing solid information on the interwebz considering that's their main/only sales channel.

    Too much information is dangerous, they're still funded by hype.

    Wait, are you looking to keep both the LC500 and a Model S in your stable at once? That's pretty sweet although they are teasing the model Y right now and it will be unveiled in a few days.

    Something to consider if you want something with a bit of ground clearance, especially in SK.

    I love that this corporate philosophy of "keep em guessing" applies to both customers and investors.

    Morons, I bet this was just a stunt to boost quarterly sales.

    Fairmont (service center) is open. There were incorrect reports out there that says it's closed but it's 100% open. Chinook actually closed back in January, well before this announcement so most likely has nothing to do with their last minute plans. Chinook also got rid of their superchargers so there aren't any in Calgary anymore, closest is Cross Iron.

    Calgary was mobile service only until they opened a service center. Not sure if they still offer mobile with the service center open though.

    If I were to guess, it would be to boost deposits. That's cash right now for future recognition.
