Whether because of technical problems, protests, off-base financial predictions or a host of other reasons, stuff happens. What doesn't always happen is a look back to see who was saying what.

We wish them no further delays, we just wanted to take stock of where we've been - and hopefully get a better idea of where we might be headed. If you're a jaded "heard-all-the-hype-before" kind of person, this is your list. If you're just learning about these vehicles and are trying to understand why a company can announce one thing and then later say another, click the links in each caption to read more about what happened. Ready? Take a look.
