    Thanx, Neal, for posting the quote. I'd much rather comment here than give him a click.
    A 'con'? Hmmm. His opinion, perhaps.
    Interior 'vastly improved' and 'Elio has finally hired people that know how to build a car'. Seems to demonstrate an ignorance of the process involving iterations from concept to production. Many (detractors) appear unprepared for the stark reality exposed to us when a significant degree of transparency shows the long and, at times, painful journey.
    The 'E1c is running an Elio engine'. Where has this guy been for the P5. Ditto to my above process remarks.
    I'm ok w skeptics expressing an opinion as such but so-called journalists should be prepared to be called on their published ignorance and/or lack of due diligence.

    Sadly, I think the press is moving more and more towards Joe's style of journalism. It used to be a battle to who could get the scoop first. Now it's who can reflect what is happening into their own spin and story. The more outlandish (pro or con) the better. With the internet anyone can pretend to be a journalist. The amount of bad, false, misleading news and reviews is truly sad.

    Jo must have been having a bad day to flip-flop on his comments about the Elio.
    He actually has me believing that he has finally dropped the BS curtain and stated how he really feels about the Elio.
    Plus EM found the soft spot in his persona and it is Black
    You could almost hear him drool over the color.

    This is totally out of character for Jo; but I actually liked his review for once.

    Thanks for posting the article. And I am pleased it was really a piss poor review. For a really great review check out that Joker's "Let's Talk Elio #28." He reports about the fancy steering wheel and the gauges and the bulge. Exciting.

    A woman talking gauges and bulges and calls it exciting? Hmm
    Sometimes I wonder about the water in Ohio; just what is in it?

    I think Jo has a real "inner struggle" going on.

    So, "if" he "drops" the negative reporting, along with driving peoples opinions away from EM, he could "possibly" have had his Elio sitting in his driveway by now!...maybe even for FREE! Just think, if all of that negative "opinion" ( I hesitate calling it "reporting" as it has been lacking "facts") had been positive "reporting"....(over) 6 years now?!?......What a positive impact there "could have been" to the reservation numbers. Which (in turn) could have impacted funding, the atvm, stocks, etc. Em could have been years ahead of where they currently are!!!

    For him to change now, he has to swallow his pride, and admit he was wrong. Maybe, he would rather stare at an empty driveway.
    He "says" that he would "like" to have an Elio. His dilema?....it isn't big enough to carry both, him and his ego! :drum:

    I don't spend much time on his ''reports/opinions". Not sure if he even claims to be a "journalist" or if he's just exercising his right to free speech.
