While I understand the concerns of traditional automakers and dealers, I am firmly convinced that the business model is changing and they need to adapt to that. Tesla and Elio are leading the way toward the diversification of manufacturing and innovation that we need in the 21st century. There are experimenters who are 3-d printing cars now! That is definitely a disruptive technology, but it is, IMO, the way of the future. Summary: The automaking industry needs to stop obstructing companies like Tesla and Elio.
