True, but you can't ignore the fact that his bluster and overpromise goes from zero to sixty in 2.9 seconds.

It's fun, but the Italians have made fast, low quality cars for decades and charging premium prices for it. Silly point though, nobody said you can't make an electric car by buying a company that already makes electric cars. Also, the real metric used to measure vehicle performance is 0-100-0. or 0-160-0 if you prefer metric. A Rimac can do 0-60mph in 2 (less on slicks), but ask Richard Hammond how well it stops lol.
The bluster, overpromise, and flat out highdeas are something else entirely lol. It's supposed to be made by a factory so fast it has to run in a vacuum to prevent air friction overheats, then drive itself coast to coast autonomously, making you money while you sleep, without the LIDAR standard in autonomous driving, skipping traffic entirely through a Musk built network of underground elevators and tunnels whos excavation materials would be used to build affordable housing, no downtime since it will be be supported by a network of battery swap stations faster and more competitive than gasoline fueling stations, a Tesla roof powering your autonomous snake charger that plugs the car in for you, watching freight pass by being pulled by Tesla semis. The promise of Tesla was no less than a total revolution in global manufacturing, overturning the combined experience, technological and economic prowess of the US, Germany, Japan, UK, France, Korea, Italy, China, and India. What a let down. It's just cars with quality on par with Maserati.
