So I take it you guys know about all the billions of dollars we sunk into solar panel and electric vehicle manufactures who went belly up 6 months later? (after the money was hidden, I mean gone)
Out of all those billions given away to all those companies tesla will will likely be one of the few if the only sucess story. And they will still only be making cars for the rich.

What do they consider affordable $30k+?
