Lol this still applies regardless. This is the, "I'm tired of having a productive discussion because I can't win it so I'm just going to make fun of them" reply.

Agree completely, if I stood to benefit financially from Tesla going down and had the ability to get the media I also might do the same thing. Same reason I don't believe Musk's nonsense is the same reason I don't believe Einhorn, both are saying what is in their best interest.

Edit - in the article posted is there even one fact presented to help prove any point. Only thing I know for sure is Einhorn benefits from Tesla going down and the two of them don't like each other. Really weak article but I guess it got what they wanted, I read it. Unfortunately too many are following their agenda and actual news is becoming rare.

Depends on the instance. Musk has done some unethical things.

Musk's dream realized:

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...-deposits-open

Since so many on here state that he created the company just to force others into the EV world his dreams are now realized.

I hope the owners of the company (the stock holders) realize this is the ultimate goal and not to have a successful company.

With the way China embrace electric car (with very little institutional resistance), like or not a lot will be electric going forward, Tesla might not be around in 10 years but someone else will

Of course there will be many makers, just not Tesla.

That's good news. For what it's worth I never stated it was Musk's dream to jumpstart the EV market. I said the existence of Tesla jumpstarted the EV market, and it has.
