So, if one reads the account in the context of a car driven by broadcast electricity, produced by more or less conventional means, and not a car driven by a Magic Black Box , then the story becomes much more interesting, because it is just possible that Tesla could have installed a receiver in an electric car (or car modified to be electric) that would have worked. There's no actual hard evidence he did this, but electric cars did exist and he had already demonstrated the ability to broadcast electricity, so the pieces were certainly there.
