Real-life Tony Stark will go James Bond...

...Elon Musk bought the 007 Lotus Espirit submersible for a reason, it was his inspiration. He will be making a special edition AMPHIBIOUS vehicle using the Model S as the mechanical & electrical base! Elon Musk is building James Bond's amphibious Lotus, for real | Stuff

...but he is also working for the everyday man as he is developing a smaller and affordable (50% pricing, yes!) Tesla model as well as an autonomous (not a car for me) Tesla!

...and do not forget that 'Tony Stark' is also aiming for Mars!

He'll probably partner with Gibbs Engineering and create an amphibious electric Model S.

Why? These are not compatible jobs. These two vehicles are very different for a reason. A cross breed would have far too many compromises to be any good at either task. AND, still to expensive to save the owner money while trying.

Look at the joke called Terefugia. Now compare that to owning a Cirrus and a Prius. You still need to drive to an airport to take off. As a professional pilot I say "no thanks".

I'll hold my breath for the first submersible fire to show up on youtube.
