Elon Musk is not a fan of Donald Trump, yet he pulled a classic bait and switch this past week. I for one have lost track of how much money he’s lost and the number of promises he’s broken. I can’t explain why someone would voluntarily pay a deposit for a car that has no set delivery date. I guess these are the same people who pay $1300 for a piece of glass that is used more for games than as a phone. I digress. So instead of concentrating on maximizing production to fill orders for existing customers, Elon diverts attention from all his failings and problems by throwing up another shiny ball. Actually is was two balls this time. An Electric Semi and a Roadster that are both cost prohibitive and unnecessary.
Elon is a smart guy but is not focused nor a business person. He is more suited as the head of R&D than the head of a large corporation. This is more ammunition for those with the capital and will to pull off a sure bet. Shorting Tesla is a no-brainer. The only catch is having the resources to do it.
What do you say Bill?
