RE: [DML] NCDMC event with Tesla -->

Musk Determined that Tesla Not Be DeLorean: Musk tells
Fortune, ?Why did DeLorean fail??Because it was a shitty sports car. It
may have looked cool, but it had the acceleration of a Honda Civic.
That?s what our car would have been with the motor we had and the power
electronics we had connected to a single speed.? So not big news, but
we like thinking about the DeLorean.

Not exactly the most positive choice of words.  But then again, perhaps I'm misinterpreting.

                  Well I asked them if they'd like to do something with us, and they said yes. So we didn't exactly invite ourselves, but we didn't exactly show up unannounced either. :-) And they seemed to like our cars just fine, hehe.

Randal, do you have any links to quotes of Elon Musk slamming DeLorean? It's not that I don't believe you, but I'd be curious to read what he said.
