    You can always tell the pioneers... they're the guys laying face down in the dirt with arrows sticking out of them.

    I dont own an electric car, got no horse in this race- but-
    I would point out, amidst all this talk of Tesla going bankrupt somehow- Both GM and Chrysler DID go bankrupt already.
    And, somehow, are both still in business.
    With so many countries announcing they will be phasing out IC cars, I would think the probable future would be more along the lines of Tesla picking up one of the big 3, not the other way around...

    Ah yes, the Fortune Magazine article ... I'll save everyone some time, and just quote the last bit here:

    “'When it comes to my car, it’s gotta be two things: American and gas-powered,' said one customer who pre-ordered a Model T. 'But Tesla’s cars run on electricity, which I didn’t know when I bought one. Each week I end up buying gallons of gas that I can’t even use. I just pour it all down the drain. Once I have a Model T, I can stop doing that.'

    Tesla noted that all pre-order sales are final, and that it will not issue refunds if legislation banning gas-powered vehicles is signed before 2022.
