It's debatable how close to bankruptcy Tesla is - don't start, we'll never agree! - but assuming it was: What would you think if Tesla got bought out to ensure it's continued existence? Would it matter who bought them for you to still buy a Model 3? If only Daimler, Alibaba or Petro China would save the company, would that matter? I mean, if the alternative would be they folded and your precious Model S or X was an orphan, or you would never ever receive a Model 3 (and forfeit your $1,000!), would you really be against a legacy / "foreign" company owning Tesla? Would you still want to buy a Tesla if Petro China owned them? or switch (with gritted teeth) to a Bolt? If they kept Elon onboard (assuming he'd stay)? If they didn't? I get really exhausted by all the vitriol on these forums -- is it so hard to say, "I see your point, I just disagree" and move on? do you really have to say "the fact is Tesla's sales will be _____ in the future [a contradiction BTW] and you're WRONG"? This hypothetical post will surely spike a lot of the same. Maybe not. Let's hope not.
