Hell for Elon Musk Is a Midsize Sedan

Musk is a total crony capitalist. He’s likeable and he knows how to paint an image but he is a crony capitalist. He uses other people’s money, taken by government, to fund his projects and to enrich himself.

Sure, Mars sounds cool. But do it with your own money. Same goes for your cars Elon.

(From Bloomberg)

On July 1, Elon Musk went home to sleep. The chief executive of Tesla Inc.had been camping out at his electric car factory in Fremont, Calif., for much of the past week. He’d been sleeping on a couch, or under a desk, as part of a companywide push to get out of what he calls “production hell” by manufacturing at least 5,000 of Tesla’s new Model 3 sedans in a week. “I was wearing the same clothes for five days,” Musk says in an interview with Bloomberg Businessweek. “My credibility, the credibility of the whole team,” was at stake.

Musk initially promised as many as 200,000 Model 3s by the end of 2017. To get there he planned an unprecedented investment in factory robots, calling the production line “the machine that builds the machine.” He’d said it would look like “alien dreadnought”—a manufacturing process so futuristic, unstoppable, and cost-effective that it would seem extraterrestrial.

It hasn’t worked out that way. Tesla ended 2017 having made not quite 2,700 Model 3s. As of the end of June it had turned out about 41,000, and some analysts express doubts about whether it will ever be able to show a profit on the car, and Tesla hasn’t even started selling the $35,000 base model.
