I've been following electric cars for a long while now. I've always hated the idea of having to be dependent on gasoline, especially since I've been able to drive. The Coda and Leaf sounded interesting, but after Aptera completely disappeared I lost interest in the possibility of a car from a company that wouldn't inevitably fail. Clearly that changed when I started reading stuff about Tesla online. I am now completely obsessed with Tesla, the Model S, the Supercharging Stations, everything. Too many times now that I've roamed through the website, toying with the design studio and reading the stats for the car and future stations. I would seriously consider purchasing one now, but the thing is I'm going away for college for the next 6 years, and the practicality of having a car with me doesn't exist. I wish I could look into requesting to test drive one in my city, but I can't even do that since I'm not a serious buyer at this point in time.
Is there anything I can do to contribute? I'm not even sure how I could. I can't say I feel helpless since whatever happens to Tesla can't directly affect me, but I admire the company and the car too much to watch it fall to the likes of Aptera, which I'm sure is still a long shot at this point.
