It all started so calmly. Russell just finished filming his review of the Lexus ES300h and promised to have that posted within a week or so. That transitioned to his and Tony’s very different opinions of the Lexus UX250h (spoiler, Tony’s right). From there, it went South: Mark mentioned the Tesla Earning Call. Paul questioned their profitability. Tony got hung up on the term Autopilot and the phrase “Full Self Drive”. Patrick insists that not enough people have read the official FAA definition of Autopilot and we try to figure where Tesla is in Autonomous Driving (Levels 1 – 5).
Fortunately, we ran out of time and had to call it a night before any punches were thrown.
