Update on Lordstown Motors

Cars & Comrades published on

We're posting this episode early because a lot has happened with Lordstown Motors in the last week, and most of it is bad news if you're invested in the company.  We also discuss Tesla's creative stretching of the truth regarding the acceleration of their latest "Plaid" performance package, and an entitled asshole who thinks the law doesn't apply to him (not Elon Musk).  Plus the latest mechanical failures of Zach and Brandon's vehicles, and a lesson on Hoxhaism.
