X100!The Tesla event and pre-order wasn't really about selling cars. They are rapidly burning through cash and this event was more about selling the company to investors so they can raise the funds they need. Big numbers and news stories are more valuable than hard sales right now. Tire kickers are more than welcome!
Tesla's business plan is to absorb as much subsidies as possible before running out of investor cash.
They are a shell game of the worse type.
Lucky for them, the greenies who love electrics also don't understand business.
