Tesla has proven its ability to see possibilities others do not (or cannot) and then act on them. Future expansion of manufacturing capacity is a matter of time. I would respectfully suggest the company examine the possibility in the future of taking part of the auto industry home, i.e. to Detroit.
Granted the city is bankrupt, but the adage "buy low" is the mantra of all successful investors. Land and infrastructure is rock-bottom in Detroit now. The region is hungry for new opportunities. Compare that to expansion/startup costs in other parts of the country, especially California.
Establishment of a manufacturing presence in Detroit itself would also send a tremendous message. Help reinvent Detroit as you have re-invented the auto industry.
