    Thanks for posting this. Didn't even know Phoenix Motorcars had a similar problem. Seems like this kind of ousting of founders is very common in EV startups.

    What's with everyone using the expression , "thrown under the bus"? Was there a memo I didn't get or something?

    I suspect Fambro was very amenable to being CTO instead of CEO and may have even been behind the decision. I don't have any inside info though. I do know the Aptera fans really like Steve and would be extremely disappointed if he wasn't intimately involved with the company, especially with it's 4 wheel car development.

    Why didn't everyone learn from the Apple-Jobs fiasco...

    It is very interesting news about building a plant, possibly in Southern California. Who would have thought that California would become an auto manufacturing state?
