Of course lot of them have significant financial consequences in there, shorts, oil companies, traditional car companies, dealers, etc. That I can at least understand but what I can't understand is why there are so many people who want Tesla to fail just for ideological reasons? Don't those people understand Tesla is not just here to take us to the sustainable future but it is also in the position to bring back to us our manufacturing supremacy? That is direly needed for us to keep the standard of living for people in this country.
Take a look at how GM is going to face the EV challenge.
"The answer is a big bet on combining proprietary battery technology, a low-cost, flexible vehicle design and high-volume production mainly in China"
The rest are just bs only the last word is the real plan.
With what companies like Apple and GM are doing we're going to lose it forever without companies like Tesla to save us. I know we still have Google and Facebook but not everyone, especially ones in red states or rust belt states, can work there. Just what are they thinking?
