    I do not go on here much and don't know if there has been any news as to what is going on inside the factory. I have seen the video tour of empty factory but what's going on now?
    I would think that there would be some kind of start up ,set up of robots etc going on by now. I did live in Belvidere Illinois and went fast the Chrysler plant every day. I know when there was a new model to be built there was a lot of construction trailers there and it was maybe 2-3 months before they were gone. So I would think maybe same thing going on?

    What we learned is that Paul Elio said we would see our cars in 2018. I've been hearing next year every year since 2013. The goal posts continue to be moved. Pretty discouraging

    I think the interview was a sales pitch to get the stocks going. I can only HOPE it will be earlier.

    The way I see it, the goal posts have never moved. The goal posts have always been "about this time next year".

    According to our MOD on another thread Paul's words were not "cast in stone" and my experience with Elio production projections is that it is a game of continual moving dates. I'd love to believe that the "ultimate clock is now ticking" but I'm not that confident in his words.

    True, it will get here when it gets here.
    If you set a schedule in your mind, and it doesn't happen, you feel disappointed.
    What people forget was that they set the schedule up for themselves.
    Now if Paul said it will absolutely be done on X date on Y month on W year, then you'd be able to hold him responsible because HE set the schedule.

    I've always told people about my work; "it will be done when it's finished" and most can't accept it.
    That's why when I hear the same thing said by someone else; I understand it.
