Good, I'm glad we can agree that your post was factually incorrect then. I'm still confused though, were you actually expecting them to stop making cars if they still had reservations but no more orders?
I'm really not sure why this is somehow complicated.
I'm guessing you either don't take him at his word or you don't even bother to read the links you post, but I guess we'll see how it plays out when the first standard range cars are delivered.
Your more verbose elaboration is that people who put down money were actually just gambling that things would work out, and if they didn't well they can get their money back after giving it the company to hold and use for two years, once the company no longer requires these deposits to try and purchase the product. And therefore reservations/deposits are actually meaningful. So essentially, your argument is that it's meaningful because it gives you a better shot, like buying a $1,000 lottery ticket, because you don't really need the money anyway. Okay then.
I don't really understand the mentality, but you're welcome to your interpretation. I'll stick with mine.
