Family disputes and character clashes must surely be an inevitable part of running such a company such as this. The struggle for power and dominance by one sibling over another may be one explanation, mismanagement or extravagance of lifestyle by one may be another.
The public nature of this sacking is regrettable and may well weaken the structure.
IMHO the whole travel direction of the company is in question. i.e.
Cash flooding out into several new technologies at once; electric propulsion, magnesium structures, racing ventures, failure to consolidate existing designs or addressing their minor design flaws.
To best please existing customers and reward their loyalty to the brand I would like to see more attention being paid to known issues and finally quality control.
For gods sake keep the sliding pillars but get some gaiters to dress them in and a minor matter of remote greasing points; like those fitted standard on many pre-war vehicles.
