Reminds me of some of the nice cars that that had the engines intentionally seized during the cash-for-clunkers program some years ago.

Don't get me started Uwe.... I personally know several mechanics and parts house folks who jobs dried up overnight !
I won't even mention the complete lack of fixer-uppers for people who didn't want/need a car payment....

We have the first six 787s destined for the scrap heap. Can't even keep them as test beds for future ideas.

What, it's too expensive to replace the battery packs with ones that are less likely to catch fire?

How many 18650's are there in one of those packs anyway? :D

Terrible waste of a car, at least you could salvage some bolts from it, can never have to many spare nuts and bolts :cool:
