gamechanger ??? or outlaw renegade car dealer ??? dmv will decide for tesla motors

Model S. Source: Tesla Motors.The comparisons between automotive stocks and Tesla Motors‘ (NASDAQ: TSLA) lofty valuation continue. But Tesla CEO Elon Musk insists that the company is an automotive tech company — not just an automotive company. Though the claim is odd, Musk is right that Tesla, and the other automotive players, aren’t necessarily driven by the same underlying dynamics. And this is the primary reason so many bears shorting Tesla’s stock continue to miss the point. Particularly, Tesla has three unique factors driving the company forward that other automotive companies can’t count on.

Exclusive Superchargers
Tesla’s charging stations aren’t the typical electric vehicle charging station. On average, Tesla’s Superchargers are about 16 times faster than most public charging stations. In fact, Model S owners can get a 50% battery charge in just 20 minutes at a Supercharging station.

Then there’s Tesla’s aggressive expansion of Superchargers to cover 98% of the U.S. population by 2015. Internationally, Tesla just began opening Superchargers in Europe, and already has 90% of the population covered in Norway.

The combination of faster charging speeds, convenient coverage, and exclusivity, not only sets the foundation for Tesla’s planned mass-market car, but it also gives the company a temporary competitive advantage. In a way, it hedges the company’s ambitious aspirations.

A swappable production strategy
This point is rarely brought up in both bullish and bearish Tesla investment theses, but it’s crucial to the company’s business model. Tesla cars are manufactured in a far different manner than traditional vehicles. They have one standard battery platform on which they can mount varying motors and bodies. Even more, Tesla’s motor is a paltry one-foot in diameter. This swappable production strategy could very well give the company an advantage in achieving production efficiencies.

“When we designed the Model S, we created a platform. So it’s not just a single car; we created something on which we could build many cars, and we are able to leverage that and bring a car to market fast,” Musk explained at the Model X unveiling.

 

Musk has expressed aspirations to eventually achieve gross profit margins that rival Porsche. Before Volkswagen acquired the luxury sports-car maker, Porsche was reporting a gross profit margin of about 50%. Already, Musk says the company should hit its 25% gross profit margin target, excluding zero-emission vehicle credits, by the fourth quarter of 2013.

Capital infusion
Thanks to investor optimism for the stock, Tesla’s $20-billion valuation has infused the company with capital to aggressively invest in Superchargers, production, and international expansion. The valuation itself is a strategic asset to the company. Its $20-billion valuation means that management has even more cash than they had planned for to make necessary investments, or even ramp up production and expansion more rapidly.

Securing the future
All three of these factors are building the foundation for the company’s eventual mass-market affordable car. And each factor helps to secure Tesla’s spot among the big automotive companies — and change the auto industry forever.

new rules for BHPH car dealers

 

AB 1534 (Wieckowski)
Vehicles: dealers: used vehicle sales: labeling requirements.

Existing law regulates the accuracy of information provided to consumers during vehicle sales, including the information contained in advertising, brochures, and manuals, as specified.

Existing law also requires manufacturers, as specified, to disclose certain information regarding a vehicles engine, as specified, by affixing a label on the vehicle. A violation of these provisions is an infraction.

This bill requires a licensed dealer, as defined, to affix to and to prominently and conspicuously display a label on any used vehicle offered for retail sale that states the reasonable market value of the vehicle.

The bill requires the label to contain specified information used to determine the vehicles reasonable market value and the date the value was determined.

The bill requires a licensed dealer to provide to a prospective buyer of the used vehicle a copy of any information obtained from a nationally recognized pricing guide that the licensed dealer used to determine the reasonable market value of the vehicle.

The bill requires the label to meet all the following conditions:

 

a)   Be in writing with a heading that reads “REASONABLE

MARKET VALUE OF THIS VEHICLE” in at least 16-point bold

type and text in at least 12-point type.

 

b)   Be located adjacent to the window sticker identifying

the equipment provided with the vehicle, or if none,

located prominently and conspicuously on the vehicle.

 

c)   Contain the information used to determine the reasonable

market value, including, but not limited to, use of a

nationally recognized pricing guide for used vehicles, and

the date the reasonable market value was determined.

 

d)   Indicate that the reasonable market value is being

provided only for comparison shopping and is not the retail

sale price or the advertised price of the vehicle.

 

The bill defines “nationally recognized pricing guide” as including,

but not limited to, the Kelley Blue Book, Edmunds, the Black

Book, or the National Automobile Dealers’ Association (NADA)

Guide.

is autobroker advertising allowed ???

yes and no
you may advertise your broker services
but not access to specific vehicles
you could reference vehicles advertised by retail dealers
with whom you have a brokering agreement
we allow that for vehicles placed on retail consignment
our drafted sale program costs 425. per vehicle
with red flag certification
you may show cars consigned to retailers
but you must negotiate and complete the sale
at the retail dealer holding that vehicle in its inventory
hope that makes sense
you have to be very careful
if you are not a licensed retailer yourself
the brokering agreement you hold may enable some advertising
under the retail dealers license

  • does not pay necessary motor vehicle fees
  • does not forward sales tax payments to the state
