Netflix seems to be down tonight but found it on Hulu. Good doc, had no idea of all that (I was in college when DMC-12 came out)

If you haven’t yet, watch this docu drama about John Delorean and his ill fated stainless auto. There are many ways that a car company can go wrong. Thank you Elon for not going down this road.

The post title is completely disingenuous. The fact the car body was stainless steel had zero to do with the problems of John Delorean & Delorean car. Might actual have been worse WITHOUT the stainless steel because then he would have needed an expensive paint shop when he already did not have enough money.
