Looking to reserve an Aptera 2e? Sorry for the inconvenience, but you can't

Remember Aptera? Well, after the automaker's 2e struggled at last year's Automotive X-Prize competition, Aptera went silent. That is, until the automaker announced its intentions to relocate. After that announcement, Aptera returned to hush mode. Why? Well, it seems financial difficulties could be a brewin' over at Aptera.
Our buds over at All Cars Electric checked in on Aptera and discovered the automaker is no longer accepting reservations for the 2e. Well, at least not at this point in time. Aptera's 2e reservation page currently offers a pretty ominous message:
Why? Well, ACE says an unnamed Aptera employee claims "there's an issue with the Wells Fargo escrow account at the moment, so we're unable to accept reservations" and that Aptera is undergoing a restructuring, so the site will soon be modified to reflect these changes.
This page is temporarily unavailable. Sorry for the inconvenience.
The folks over at ACE reached out to Aptera for official comment on the situation, but did not received a response from the automaker. Seems a bit fishy, doesn't it?
