Tesla Model X.

I'm not sure I'm that excited about it. I've never seen it, and it isn't on the road yet. That is how this blog works. I don't have to love everything.

My biggest problem is - I don't think this company (or any of his companies) would be alive without corporate welfare. The SpaceX stuff maybe I could maybe turn a blind eye to. From the tax incentives on every car, to the cap and trade, to him buying up farmland for tax benefit. I know he paid off his loan. But if gas stays low - we get to see how this company rides. I'm pretty sure the Bay Area makes up the lion share of the sales. They are everywhere. And I just don't understand how batteries are better for the planet than oil. If a product was that great - you wouldn't need tax incentives to get people to buy something. It's just the bottom line. I know the owners love them. But we are still early days.

Still, everyone seemed to be super excited about it. There was such a crush getting a side shot was out.
