    Do you think that it could a real possibility that Tesla would allow acquisition by the likes of a Toyota or GM in the same way that Elon sold Paypal to Ebay? Or do you think Tesla's in it for the long haul?

    I'm not all that interested in whether Tesla is in it for the long haul, because I didn't buy it with that in mind. The NYT hack wrote his attack article (the kind that shows premeditation), the stock went down, I saw the decline as an opportunity and bought as a speculation. It's worked out quite nicely so far. I've set a sell price both high and low, with the high being a very nice profit and the low still being in the black.
