Tesla Needs $6 Billion...
Thats the conservative number coming out of goldman sachs at least. $6 Billion in capital needed should Tesla be interested in truly disrupting the industry. Of course there are multiple IF's at play here. IF Tesla can get involved at a lower price point, if they can scale production upwards, IF electricity ever becomes more convenient and profitable (for end users) than ICE...

If they want it to be as popular as the iPhone or the Model T, but being less popular than that would still be a fine goal. I think that success could mean a lot of different things for Tesla. They could end up being more high end ultimately, they could end up being more of a niche brand. I'm just saying that this report doesn't seem to give a lot of wiggle room or nuance.

I'm sure if Elon wants to go that route, then I'm sure he can get the funding. it would be great to get his take on this, not sure if we'll ever see that.

Goldman Sachs just makes it sound so impossible. I don't understand why they wrote this prediction in such a negative light. I think that Tesla will be able to raise capital and also be successful. i'm not sure what success will mean for them, but I don't think that not becoming as popular as the Model T would be considered a failure.
