This is one of the issues I have with Tesla. I've been on the earth for 66 years, and generally when a company has massive demand for a product that they have revealed as something they're going to produce. Then that massive demand is MONEY sitting on the table that they want.Two million reservations is an insanely large number.
Companies will spend ungodly amounts of money to find a way to get that product out, and in the hands of customers, so they can reap the profits.
SO, in 2017 Tesla/ Elon Musk told the world they had the ability to make Electric Semi's and were going to start production in 2 years. Same with the new roadster. This created tons of interest and huge number of corporations and people deposited way more than $100 for an opportunity to BUY these products. Here's all this money sitting on the table, and yet Tesla has not come to market. Then we have a repeat of this with the Cybertruck in 2019. Supposedly there are 2 million of us hangry customers standing in line, money in hand.
So here we are, mid-summer of 2022. Tesla has spent ungodly amounts of money. But still no products to SELL. Yet, Tesla stock and market cap is beyond belief. So this makes me wonder, why did Tesla/Elon Musk reveal these products, and create all this demand if they didn't have a way to get to all the cash THOSE customers are waving?
BTW, I do think there still is a possibility that these products will EVENTUALLY be produced. But come on Elon, we're getting HANGRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
