The relentless nurburgring testing makes even more sense to me now. The results mean absolutely nothing but it builds street cred in Germany to boost reputation/sales

Saturday’s protest came after a Brandenburg water association on Thursday warned against “extensive and serious problems with the drinking water supply and wastewater disposal” for the proposed factory.
Anne Bach, a 27-year-old environmental activist, said Tesla’s plans published earlier this month showed it would need more than 300 cubic meters of water per hour which would drain the area’s declining reserves.
“I am not against Tesla ... But it’s about the site; in a forest area that is a protected wildlife zone. Is this necessary?” Bach said.

Now if Tesla could find an old coal plant site instead: https://www.reuters.com/article/us-...k-coal-plants-in-2020-draft-law-idUSKCN1VQ1U9

Germany plans to shut down its first power plants that use black coal in 2020, a draft law seen by Reuters on Thursday showed, as part of a planned phase-out of coal by 2038 expected to cost at least 40 billion euros ($44 billion).
. . .

That would be poetic justice.
