Tesla, Elon Musk and his henchmen seem to be becomingly increasingly desperate, unethical and irrational.
Tesla seems to be in a desperate position to raise cash and give the impression of profits even when it might be false profits. Some might call it juggling the books, cooking the books and perhaps even fraud.
Isn't this type of negotiation typically what happens when a company is in early stages of bankruptcy or approaching possible bankruptcy?

Elon Musk has a history of shady dealings that could be interpreted as fraudulent.
I think it was unethical and morally fraudulent, if not legally fraudulent that Tesla, Elon Musk and his suck ups that shill for him; portrayed to early model three adopters that the Tesla model three starting price would be $35,000 and that there would be an additional substantial tax credit to significantly reduce the price. Yet like in a bait and switch tactic; Tesla shifted production of the model three to the much more expensive luxury versions. So Tesla, Elon Musk and his suck ups that shill for him; are screwing over early adopter fan boys of the base Tesla model three. Preferential treatment and subsidies are being given to the rich. Yet those that wanted the middle-class version of the Tesla model three seemingly are getting screwed. Tesla seemingly has used the deposits by middle class, would be Tesla base model three owners, are getting screwed, seemingly the deposits are being used as seed money to subsidize the rich, and taxpayer money is being used for rebates to subsidize the rich.
What happened to the 'affordable' $35,000 Tesla Model 3?
Reportedly a lot of early adopters that were screwed over by Tesla, Elon Musk and his suck ups that shill for him; including Prada like fake news sites and hacks; are canceling their orders in droves.

It seems that most US early adopters of the Tesla model three are going to be screwed out of getting there $7500 tax credit. So it seems they will no longer be able to get the base model of the Tesla model 3 for $27,500 as it was portrayed by, Elon Musk and his suck ups that shill for him; including Prada like fake news sites and hacks.
As Tesla tax credits disappear, will Model 3 deposit-holders stick around?
Ontario Canada is also ending its tax credits that subsidize Tesla and the other rich.

Germany is not only ending subsidies, it is recalling subsidies. Germany claims that Tesla illegitimately gamed the system.

The honeymoon is over. The public and even some of Musk's suck ups are starting to wake up and smell the coffee.
