    But still, it must be said that Tesla is building a COMPANY as well as a car.

    When GM was building the EV1 they used an old building they had for design, brought in a handful of EV expert new hires and tapped the company resources for talent from top to bottom. They had two divisions arguing which would get the charger and inverter, and multiple plants that were fighting for the production line.
