Their product line just doesn't have anything exciting in. No loyalty base in the US, not a good bang for the buck just a so so German cars made in the US.
Back in the original GTI days I was a fan, now ???? They went with a masculine look with the bug, not sure that was a good idea either???
Hate to say butt it coming. Bad idea but Elon has no one around to him to stop himself. Kind of like Walt Disney, he would have gone BK without his brother Roy, Walt was the idea guy and could get things done. Roy was the business guy who had to keep Walt in check. Elon has no Roy.
The market is only so big for a $70-$100K car. Period. Any way you do it, only rich people in rich countries can buy a Tesla. The Model X needs to come out soon to keep sales going.
For a specialty car I believe Tesla is doing well for now but at the Model S price point it's about maxed out sales wise.
They actually up the BWN production in Spartanburg lately.
Boeing doing well down in Charleston SC as well.
The union guys really need to realize they aren't skilled labor, anyone can be trained up to assemble cars planes whatever. Whole idea behind the assembly line.
Might want to take a look at Tesla's chart. Been in a down trend for a while now.
Going open source on their patents and becoming a battery manufacturing start up.
I would say Tesla Gen3 is dead. There will be no cheap EV out of Tesla. Musk is throwing a Hail Mary hoping he can make batteries cheap and some big car company will pick up his patents to make those Joe Blow EV's. He's hoping they make them by the millions.
His major problem is he's to late, there are no political types who will stick their neck out for EV's any more. In fact the whole going green thing really isn't panning out. How well is the 10% ethanol gas working out???
I am impressed with Tesla, there is a massive fail coming up in a few years, one that will go down in the history books.
My county has out lawed texting and driving, possible phone use in general may be banned.
Yes phone are a problem especially when your drunk and smoking. You only have so many hands and they should both be on the wheel.
He never proved that and no company has it up and running. Tesla also said he could build a death ray but never did.
