tesla motors can hire all the "fashion" designers in the world, but that will not fix its problems. styling is obviously not an issue at tesla, engineering and many=ufacturing are the real issues. 1st of all, the detroit based "engineering" team is the primary reason for the sedan delay. this team has no real engineering experience, as a matter of fact they "borrowed" most of their engineering specifications from toyota. also, the team has no real manufacturing experience as well as any technological interior expertise. decent cad designers does not an engineering team make. what tesla really needs is to hire a hands on, pragmatic, nuts and bolts manufacturing/industrial engineering team. good luck to the people who purchase the 1st "mass production" sedans...lol...alot.

btw...using the way overrated talents from lotus england will not help this company. i never met a brit who ever lived up to his own self image, particularly in the auto business. nothing but poppycock and jibberish. invalids can make 2 cars a day.
