So the upcoming Time magazine will list the Roadster as #2 in the 50 best innovations of 2008. According to the San Francisco Chronicle: Time Magazine ranks top 50 inventions It is unclear how much of that is the Chronicle, and how much of that is Time. But it is a disturbing trend I have been seeing this week. Many articles essentially proclaiming that the Roadster has been put on hold. I have also seen reports proclaiming Tesla motors have fired half of its employees. Soon I expect to start seeing reports that Tesla itself went out of business.
