I for one welcome our new dystopian overlord!

I think that it is weird that millions of people somehow like a truck imitating "Blade Runner," which was set in a miserable world.

Graham Stephan said that it was designed with the "aesthetics and inspiration of origami."

Did he really buy it for $100?

Maybe...

He posted a video about buying a Model 3 for $78 a month and more than paid for his Tesla. He is highly successful, but he is as guilty of clickbait as Shouty, although he has not made a clickbait video about his clickbait, like Kilmer did.

One interesting thing that he pointed out:
Quote:
For those commenting on the tax aspects of the car: (NOT FINANCIAL ADVICE - YMMV)
For business use of the car: Section 179 Deduction + Bonus Depreciation means that, potentially, 100% of the cost of the car could be a tax write off. If you finance the car 100%, your out of pocket expense is even less during the first few years. Combine that with whatever Federal EV rebates are available for you, depending on your state, in 2021/2022...depending on your tax bracket...and you could be looking at a relatively decent profit owning the car. Sure, you will have depreciation recapture when you sell...but, still - the upfront tax advantages might be worth it IF this car weighs over 6,000 pounds (I can't see why it wouldn't)
...and then this loser:
