    Tesla is One invention away from bankruptcy.

    What if 1 gallon of gas gave you 100 miles with 300 horse power? Is electric car still desirable? Things that run on batteries are just like flashlights. Performance drops as batteries get drained. Do you really think Model S will just suddenly stop when battery is drained? The last 50 miles of its battery life will probably get you 15 to 10 to 5 miles per hour crawling to a stop. It's a fad. Technology will improve to a point where full tank of gas will get you one way trip from Los Angeles to New York with 300 horse power. When do you think that will happen for an electric car? 50 stops with 8 hours for each stop to charge from Los Angeles to New York. Battery technology hasn't changed for last 20 years. Why? You can't change the laws of physics. Time to short this fad.
