GF4 in Germany?

GF4 in Germany?

VW employs people there and is this why VW would like to buy a stake in Tesla. Just seems connected.

Shipping and transit is supposed to be excellent from that location.

Yeah, but every 10th employee might be a Martin Tripp, sent by the big German competitors. Paranoid? Sure. But the paranoid survive. I’d think twice. Germans are very protective of their Industry.

Don't believe Tripp was German and don't believe intelligent people would do that crap but it is easy to check nowadays.
I worked in Germany and they take great pride in their work. In addition you need very smart educated people to work at Tesla who knows computers, machinery, etc. Robotics expertise is very important and they do excel at that.
Now I like Poland also as it has a very educated populace. At least Germany is going alternative energy which is a big plus.

Also the Autobahn is a great place to drive fast. I think European drivers are more used to high speed driving with Care

@Madatgascar, I'll bet that percentage is a lot higher in GF3.
