WSJ’s reporting on Tesla reminds me of their reporting on Theranos

Both enjoy the blind faith of investors. In Tesla’s case, there are at least working products, even though I still cannot understand the appeal of their Model S. Other than the exterior design, I find its interior not as high quality as even the Toyota Avalon.  I pinched my fingers on the inside door handle of the Model S, something that has never happened to me in many other vehicles. Talk about design. 

Perhaps the feeling of being on the same page as a charismatic billionaire, plus the desire to reduce carbon emissions, overrule reason. This is like being in love: we tend to overlook a lot of blemishes while lavashing our attention on the giant touch screen.
