He has way too much pride to wait for himself to fire himself, he would tell himself he quit well before that could ever happen.

Anyone want to bet on how much he skimmed off on the deal? Thanks to Obama's GREEN AGENDA. That is the gubmint way, take the money and run.

With 3 times the subsidy from the tax payers. C'mon that is hardly an apples to apples comparo. Last year you could get $7500 from the Feds and $5000 from CA. Making the Leaf a pretty good deal if you had a commute it would fit.

Tesla currently is accepting reservations for the Model X on its Web site. The base Model X requires a $5,000 deposit, while the uplevel Model X Signature requires a $40,000 deposit. Tesla has not posted official pricing on the Model X. The deposits are fully refundable, according to the Web site.
My uncle put a refundable deposit on a Tucker. When they went belly up he got a Tucker Radio in the bankruptcy. Wonder what that would be worth today? If I knew him he gave it to the Salvation Army.

Seriously? One sold on eBay had one per the Auto Channel, but I don't see a price. There's a '48 Tucker heater on eBay right now, starting bid $199.

My uncle would pull out his Tucker Radio to show anyone that was interested. Sounds like someone got a heater for their deposit. If any company goes bankrupt the likelihood of getting any money invested or put down on deposit is slim. I have lost my share on GREEN companies. A fairly long list of hopeful winners. So far I am batting ZERO on Green stocks. ECOB, GSPI, ZAAP. From here on out I will leave the Green Crappola to those with more money than brains.

$7500 is the maximum, newer plug-ins with less battery capacity don't qualify for that much.
MD offers up to $2000, is it really up to $5k in Cali?
Considering they had rolling black outs not too long ago, that's kind of odd. Of course you can program them to charge off peak.
