    No need to start hiring yet since as far as we know, they are still not done with development. Cannot build production models when they are still changing the vehicle. We just heard of the fender redesign, so who knows what else is still in the works.

    Agreed, no need to hire assemblers until there are parts to assemble. I think the body design is very near completion, so quite possibly as soon as funding came through, it could be finalized in days, and the $tooling ordered for the stamped steel body parts.

    I'm still sitting on the sidelines. I have been for several years. I would really like to see emails with pictures of current design and time-lines of the individual projects. I think it would be a real confidence builder to see the process. Why is everything wrapped in mystery? I can't be the only one who enjoys the build and design process. I can't believe the start of the last blog started with the status of NCAA! Who cares?

    Im not sure anything is even happening at Elio Motors. Don't believe they have enough cash to continue design and build progress.

    I believe you are correct sir.
    I believe all attention by the Elio Motors folks is on FUNDING now.
    I believe.

    I agree and the future is not promising

    Wow. "We intend to raise the remaining capital primarily through customer reservations and/or additional equity and/or debt offerings". This lists customer reservations at near 24 million - after 3 years of effort. 272 million isn't going to happen that way.

    The car is very likable. Not so much the company.

    Is thre some particular reason you focused on reservations and ignored the "... and/or additional equity and/or debt offerings" part?
