Tesla is probably OK
So the S is supposed to retail below US$40K. Is that with or without the subsidy?? If it is without, then this fab car should sell itself (as the order queue testifies). The bigger problem is that Elon's manufacturing engineers can't get out of each others' way. Perhaps GM should buy Tesla? GM has some credentials in manufacturing (though less in staying solvent).
Meanwhile, gubmint subsidies in general (ok totally) are a bad idea--distorts markets, costs taxpayers, increases deficits, rewards cronies.
Oh, and we're gonna have to build a whole bunch of nuclear power plants to fuel all this leccy stuff...
