    They will need to stuck-bandaid pull the Volt 2 into production. Cut Hamtramck down to minimal builds in 2015/March or none. Start building 2016 Gen-II then and deep discount the remaining dealer...

    The math does work out for some, sure. Especially if leases are involved. But we also have people talking about buying new Teslas to save money over "gas guzzlers". I think the scale is sliding...
