Aptera deposits are only $500, not $5000.

In September Aptera secured $24M in venture capital for production startup costs, having already blown through $17M in product development money. This is why founder Steve Fambro was demoted; so that investors had a "money" man in charge and not a starry-eyed dreamer.

Just as a point of reference, so far Tesla has gone through almost $140M in venture capital. At least they've actually delivered some cars to customers.
