Default Tesla

Holy Moly! I just read in the paper that Tesla is spending $8000 a minute! ($480,000 an hour!) They will blow through 1 Billion in a quarter in making the Model 3. But you can put a $250,000 down payment on their Roadster that won't be available for at least two years if you're interested in helping their cash flow.

Here's that....

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...d-model-3-woes

Something else....

"If reporting on Tesla's operations is true, Tesla hasn't done enough of the hard work of building an efficient operation that it can build on. Workers putting parts on cars by hand, raw materials laying around the factory floor, and a production line moving at a snail's pace after the Model 3 is already launched aren't signs of an efficient operation. They're signs that Tesla is figuring out operations on the fly. "

Considering the current political climate (pun fully intended), I see all such subsidies going away..... soon. The denier in charge of the EPA has already gutted that agency and handcuffed and gagged what's left.
