With the second comment by "Kery Bradshaw"
I don't think it is impossible for Tesla to succeed without offshore manufacturing - there are drawbacks too having nothing to do with quality (as with tying up the inventory with shipping the original ESS manufacturing). But admittedly it should be something considered.
I have figured a while ago that making a car in china, but using US management, is a way to start a car company. Domestic manufacturing ( building the factory, rent, and hiring) gets very expensive, and the chance of success is very slim without a higher priced car with good margins. The $57k price target set for the Model S is very aggressive even for the smaller battery pack.
