Sorry, friends, but the Tesla Model X isn’t progress

Tesla’s pitch wasn’t that it would compete with Bentley or Porsche in the exclusive ultra-luxury ranks. Surely the federal government didn’t create $7,500 EV tax credits to give tech billionaires a discount on a six-figure SUV, or to hand Tesla a competitive edge against Lamborghini or BMW. No, Tesla and Musk promised nothing less than to revolutionize transportation.
