    They estimate it will cost $58k but would qualify for a nearly $8k tax credit.

    Beautiful (if not a mild copy of new Jaguar)

    Sadly, the company has no money, venture capitalists are running away and I doubt they make it another year. (barring another silicon valley billionaire opening up a checkbook and throwing money down that hole)

    What's happening to Tesla is very similar to what happened to Tucker Automobiles in 1947-1948. The corporate giants are all working on the same or substiantially similar technology and they would rather all of it to flow through the current channels rather than having a rogue company pop up (just like Tucker tried to)

    "The Big 3 Killed my Baby" (White Stripes)
    That song applies to Tesla as well.

    if american cars looked like that for the past 5 years, they probably would have had much better sales
