The Tucker Torpedo was an amazing car for its time, and still a gorgeous piece of machinery–imagine what would’ve happened if the company survived! I lament Tucker’s downfall and gnash my teeth at the insidious crony capitalism that led to its demise. Crony capitalism that still threatens competition in every industry, not just automotive. If your state passes such “anti-Tesla” laws, write to your legislature and ask them, point-blank, why they hate America.
I’m looking at you, Texas, New Jersey, Michigan, Arizona, West Virginia, and North Carolina.
Tesla can learn from the lessons of Tucker.
