Wasn't one theory that Musk had cut-offs from the BFR stainless steel pile, and challenged Tesla to do something with it? And then call it a completed design?
I’m a lapsed industrial designer. I was born in NYC and figured I’d die there, but a few years ago I abandoned New York to live on a farm in the countryside with my wife. We have six dogs.
