Tesla man has got the axe swinging in an attempt to turn a profit after 15 years of not doing so, watch this space I think he would be delighted to sell it off to one of the large global VM's.

I think the large VM’s will probably wait for it to go bust

Still loosing $6,500 a minute

Paying the interest off the large debt will cripple them, investors nervous, share price shortened by a quarter

I don’t think it looks good

Maybe Trump will step in and keep it going to save jobs and quality American manufacturing and technology with government money

Then again if he can post even the slightest operating profit in the next year, it will soar in value and investors will pile in

That's the sort of game I imagine him to be playing and then sell it off as a complete battery manufacturing unit and cars to a major.

He normally does the unpredictable so I'm not holding my breath - I like his style though.

It does make you wonder I hope he doesn't get burnt, he was exceptionally brave in producing the first desirable long distance all electric cruiser.

Regain did something similar with Hardly Ableson
