    Tesla is firing hundreds of employees, the San Jose Mercury News first reported on Friday.


    The news followed annual reviews at the company, and was revealed just one day after Tesla announced a recall impacting 11,000 of its Model X SUV's worldwide. The recall concerned rear seats that may fail to lock safely in place in the vehicles.

    Tesla is running on borrowed time and money.

    Musk is a government entrepreneur, funding his businesses with government money rather than by making products that could be profitable.

    Damn... and only a couple days after Putin commented that he may-or-may-not buy a Tesla, but prefers natural-gas autos because they're more planet-friendly:

    In this article skip down about 35%-40% into the article. Tesla has a huge problem in its manufacturing that traces all the way back to badly or incompletely done engineering design. Sloppy design means sloppy fit means sloppy manufacturing time. And probably mean future buyer satisfaction problems.

    Reading the comments is revealing. None of the cheerleaders have any idea their tax dollars are "building" the Tesla. The article does have some holes in it and really gives a bad vibe the wrong way. Volt, Bolt and Leaf have never been and never will be a competitor to tax teat sucking Musk.
