The Tesla vehicle market was targeting rich greenies -  with their pay up front scheme I don't know many who can afford.   It may be a nice car - but without the ability to see one and test drive/kick the tires - I don't see it making the mainstream purchaser.

The federal tax rebates were reaching their limits -  doubt they will be renewed. 

They can't make more than 3 cars (recently reported troubles) a day of their cheap model (30k base price) 
Not sure who's looking for the super fast version - or how much you have to give them for a few years for the option to purchase

I've seen some of the 'quality' workmanship underneath of a Tesla and unless it's greatly improved, I'm not impressed, but then skilled workers are a premium in a state where techno geeks live.

And my friend who owns one of the S models - claims it has regenerative brakes - and very few moving parts for service or maintenance... 

I just can't see 60K to save a little on maintenance - and you can buy a boatload of gas for 30K

Probably does.  DC motors have that feature built in.

60K?  I don't think you can buy a Model S for 60K.

They start at 68K - and as you know everyone wants options.....

Probably got the Federal government subsidy of 7500...   

This guy is looking at the next gen with the self driving option (10K) 
like I said rich greenies...   

He did tell me I could get 4 sets of clubs in the vehicle :)

LOL - built with Government money, and then the buy is subsidized with more Government dollars.

I hope he is willing to wait for the "new" car.

Elon isn't very good at building them.

Oh - and this "green" guy also puts rockets up.  That is a totally "green" endeavor.

I hope so.

Elon is just another jet setting Liberal Hypocrite - only he survives on our tax dollars to fund his genius endeavors.

He doesn't make money on any of them - yet he has unlimited dollars to always continue doing it.  How does that work?

And the Liberal "Greenie" sheep stand in line to but up his subsidized crap.

Once the government 'help out' goes away, so does Musk.

People don't understand (and maybe don't want to) is that incentive money is tax dollars, it ain't free.

I'd like to see that apply to ethanol producers as well.  Then, they'd go tits up too.  Neither business is sustainable without tax dollar infusions.

I will say that I give Musk credit for being an opportunist.  He saw the opportunity and is milking it for all it's worth (which is a gob).

Let the incentives lapse and that will take care of the whole business.

I see he made his big battery for Australia - so he can collect $50million... from their government. 

Its not like they were putting batteries in cars they were making!

Must be a lot of money in carbonated beverages...

UPS went that route (electric delivery vans) didn't pan out too well.    Could you imagine an electric semi tractor up here with all the road salt and cacl.  All of that stuff with water makes an excellent conductor and it's corrosive too.
