I cant find an on-line link to that article. I could scan it and post tomorrow. The main points are.... Tesla is in trouble and losing $4,000 per car. Bob said Elon should consider an entry level car with hybrid driveline. Pretty much what Karma (Fisker) already has.

I especially liked s'toon comment... "He's wrong about the losing $4000 per car thing. He of all people should know better, as it's the same misleading kind of figures that was used to bash the Volt. Take money spent, divide by number of cars built to that point, and whallah! Money lost per car. The problem is it's bad logic. First of all, that figure grows smaller with each car built. Secondly, they're not losing money with each car. Tesla is building up infrastructure. They're building a Gigafactory, new production facilities, and a supercharger network. They're making money on each car, but the expenditures are outpacing the money coming in until that infrastructure is built. Once it's built, then Tesla will be able to pay down the debt and then make a profit."
