    Tesla announced massive layoffs. In order to sell something, you must first be able to build them .the notion that Tesla is a good role model for the Detroit three to emulate is highly questionable.

    Tesla is nothing more than a over rated luxury niche brand. They will never produce vehicles for the masses.

    The bubble is deflating. Shooting another car into space should fix that though.

    I am curious. Who said GM, Fiat-Chrysler (note: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fiat_Chrysler_Automobiles) and Ford should model their manufacturing after Tesla? Can you quote this individual? Be careful not to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Straw_man .

    And some of the Wall street investment analysts. Wall streets valuation and business practice opinions are what drove Chrysler into aviation in the 80's. Ford was wooed into various enterprises as well.Gm was hooked up with Hughes Corporation and EDS. None of which buttered the stock holders bread to any appreciable degree.

    I removed the seats and many plastic parts in the back to use my FiST as a track day car.
    I've noticed that the cargo space, after the customization, was not so considerable…..I think that only few cardboard boxes can find a place..

    Here in Italy there is the smallest van I've ever seen..

    I can think it can load many….letters and papers

    Personally i'm going to buy a Transit Connect or similar if i need a large back space.
    However it look so "racing" with the back glass covered
    I agree with You!.....With Panther Black colour besides ..I guess there is not the tailgate window…..perfect to be a private room
