Dyefrog...Do you have some link to back up the claims? Elon has never waivered on his stance of opening the supercharger network to any EV manufacturer AFAIK. In fact there's a rumor that talks are ongoing with a major player. Also, the Tesla mission statement is to “accelerate the advent of sustainable transport by bringing compelling mass-market electric cars to market as soon as possible.”
Seems to me, that would trump your concerns of Tesla's value. To further discredit your anti-Tesla rant, he has opened up all patents to any responsible manufacturer.
"Tesla will not initiate patent lawsuits against anyone who, in good faith, wants to use our technology."
Elon has publicly stated that he could give a rats ass what Wall Street says so it's not about the money. We're not talking about GM here.
What kind of kool aid are you drinking? Elon is a MASTER MARKETEER! If Elon had the intentions you described, he would have already opened up his network to others and happily charged for it.
I do not dislike Tesla...you have me wrong. BUT...and I really mean BUT...when you make promises to people, take their money and clearly change the game as you go...like my two Model 3 reservations for the $35,000 model that i have been waiting for 2 years only to be told it will now be closer to 3 and the tax credit will be long gone even though i was in line at the beginning AND Elon did say deliveries from west to east...(but we now know that is not true) and I could keep going...
Now we are beginning to hear of the atrocious build quality of the Model 3...lack of service and parts availability....and it is clear this Model 3 rollout is a complete train wreck.
And if he didn't care about the money...why does he keep asking for more?
Clearly, something is very, very wrong here...already talking of the Model Y, semi and roadster 2.0 and can`t even build a decent Model 3 in reasonable numbers?
Lets call a spade a spade...if GM sent out Bolts in the same condition that Tesla is sending out Model 3's, it would be in every major newspaper around the world in 10 minutes...GM would be a complete laughing stock and every board member of GM would be fired by the end of the business day.
I'm not a Tesla hater but come on man, how many "get out of jail" free cards can you give Elon and Tesla..
Deliver what you promise (like GM did) and quit taking your customers for fools.
There are TONS of pissed off people out there like me...but nobody wants to talk about it. It didn't have to be that way if someone didn't have so much "hubris"...and just did what they promised.
Go back and watch the Model 3 grand event from 2 years ago...listen closely to what he said, promised and compare that to what he plans on delivering now...3/4 of it is pure BS.
