Even Warren Buffet couldn't accomplish that with all of his money over that time period. Elio does not have the design done by a long shot. They have told us that through the numbers. When you have spent $62M so far and need an additional $85M, that's a total budget of $147M. Elio is literally not even 50% of the way there. At this rate of progress, it'll be 2029 by the time they get ready to have a version to produce. Currently, I'd say that the rate of progress on getting it done is about 0.01% per month. Elio has told everyone that it'll take 76 weeks to get the car to production, that's mid 2019. I doubt they could shave any time off of that since it's pretty optimistic as it is. Elio would be much further along if they would have started with a number of around 5K for the first year and then ramp up slowly. When you are looking at cranking one out every 40 seconds, you have to design accordingly. Plus, just look at the problems Tesla is having with the Model 3 ramp up. This is a company that has already been making cars but not at the volume like they will be with the 3. This is why Elio is only planning for 65K the first year because they know it'll take a while to get up to full speed. Elio knows better.
