Tesla
So in Part Two, he points out that Elon Musk appropriated Nicola Tesla's name without the family's permission. (Not that he needed it.)

I'd like to point out that General Motors did the same thing to Louis Chevrolet and Ford did it to Abraham Lincoln. It's not exactly new in automotive history.

I think we both know that the second-best name for an electric car (after "Tesla") would be "the Watt-Evans".
