blogentry-133713-0-76399100-1528365175_thumb.jpgWhen the entry-level Model 3's order books opened in April 2016, many Tesla fans went and put deposits for for the all-electric car. However, many have given up since up.

 

With the production issues affecting delivery times, data published by Second Measure asserts that as of the end of April, 23 percent of all Model 3 deposits in the United States had been recalled. For those who are wondering what Second Measure is, it is an analytic tool that takes credit card transactions and analyses them so investors can see where consumers are voting with their dollars before a company’s quarterly earnings come out.

 

As reported by Carscoops, the data also revealed that 18 percent of all Model 3 refunds happened in April, the same month when Elon Musk said the sedan would be delayed between six to nine months.

 

In response to the articles posted online,Tesla claims that the figures published by Second Measure are not in line with its own figures. However, he chose not to mention how many orders had been cancelled.

    Honda Shuttle driver blocks everyone from moving at Katong

    Now this is a good one for debating. Do you think the lady in the Honda Shuttle is wrong, or its just the taxi driver being difficult? As shown on SG Road Vigilante's page, a clip shot by a Premier taxi driver, shows a lady in her Honda Shuttle blocking the drop off/pickup point of Katong Shopping Center on 7th of Aug 2020. The reason she is blocking everyone is that she wanted to reverse into the parallel lot beside the taxi but in order for her to do so, all the cars, including the taxi behind, her has to reverse. Now that can be quite a hassle to everyone... So without seeing the first part of this incident, could it be that the taxi driver was being difficult from the start and could have just reversed for her to go into the lot? Or do you guys reckoned that the Honda driver was just a little bit too self-entitled?

    This is not the way to do an Aventador convoy!

    Last weekend saw the tragic accident of a BMW driver who was flung out of his E92 3 Series convertible along PIE. Condolences to the poor soul who did not survive the crash. Last weekend also saw the not-so-tragic accident of two Lamborghini Aventadors crashing into each other along Sembawang Road on 7 June. The photos of the 2 lamborghinis which crashed into each other went viral among local car clubs with SG Road Vigilante further furnishing us with the video shown here.  According to the SGRV's post, the owners of the Aventadors removed their number plates promptly after the accident but its members could spot the similar black bonnet, black strip , white brake caliper and etc. that was similar to another yellow Lamborghini Aventador which was caught driving recklessly at Newton.     Check out what netizens have to say about this double crash!
    Is this a case of 'you get what you deserve'? Or do you guys think the crash is a loss to our local car scene?

    Cyclist thinks he has the right of way, but netizens flame him

    Now this will probably open up a can of worms or two. Who do you reckon is in the wrong? The cyclist or the driver of the Audi? Filmed by the cyclist on 5th of July along mandai road, a white Audi A1 could be seen pulling out of a small lane and into the path of a cyclist who was doing less than 30km/h on his bike. According to the source SG Road Vigilante, the guys there reckoned the car did not notice or did not care about the cyclist, barely cutting him off. What do you guys think?  Was it a close call or an error on the part of the Audi driver? Or was this a simple case of the cyclist letting his ego take control of him and not riding defensively for his own safety?

    Let us know in the comments below!

    This is why power is nothing without control

    We always hear the phrase "power is nothing without control"  In this latest blog post, we now can show you exactly what that phrase means. Shared furiously among many Whatapp chats is a video of a recent accident involving a Nissan R35 GT-R losing control in one of the tunnels of the CTE. The matt silver GT-R which does not look stock at all, should be producing quite a bit more than the stock 480bhp (an remap will easily bring the power figures near 600bhp). It can be seen barreling along the tunnel on 11 July 2020 at quite a high speed before losing it all and smashing into the rear of a Mercedes-Benz CLS350.  What did you think made the driver lose control of his AWD GT-R? Could it be a case of malfunction on the car that caused the car to go bonkers? Let us in the comment box!
