Are you high?There's a GLARING PROBLEM with Tesla Motors. It's based on MONEY, not IP (Intellectual Property)..aka R&D. The Roadster production delay highlighted a red-flag:
lack of R&D for the multi-speed gearbox mated to electric motor (instantaneous torque curve), high stress load
The good thing about Tesla is that they are based on IP. Which is why Tesla is selling it's tech to Daimler and Toyota.
Fisker on the other hand is based on pretty design-work, and for the rest of the car they just threw money at it. Need electric drive train? Throw money at Quantum Technologies. Need gasoline engine? Throw money at GM. Need a factory? Throw money at Valmet. Etc etc.
I would expect that the way they handed over large parts of the design-work to third parties was the primary reason for the car being riddled with faults. When you have several companies involved, you need a really strong leadership to ensure that the interfaces between the different bits are solid, and that all issues are handled. Otherwise, the different companies do the specific things they were contracted to do (in their minds), and all the interfacing and the like end up as they may. When you do something in-house, it's a lot easier to ensure that all issues are handled, instead of company A believing issue X is company B's responsibility and company B believing issue X is company A's responsibility.
