    I can honestly say I’d rather take my 1996 1/2 ton ram with the 360 mopar v8 out on the trails than an electric toy car meant to run on roads with the back cut off and no additional suspension work done. Plus if you’re out in the boonies and run out of battery juice, you’re fucked. If I run out of gas in the boonies, I’ll fill it up with the 5 gallon gas can I got in the bed.

    Hopefully Elon smokes a fat one and figures out that the Model X platform would be easy to turn into a pickup truck; less on luxury, more on utility.
