[TCML] "Negistor" for SISG?

A "negistor" is best described as an ordinary bipolar transistor with its emitter and collector reverse connected and that,when supplied with sufficient voltage, exhibits a negative-resistance coefficient. Could a negistor or a number of negistors in series, together with antiparallel diodes to conduct the reverse-current be used as a solid-state spark-gap replacement in a Tesla-coil application? I understand the current-carrying ability of small transistors -reverse- or forward- biased- is likely to be limited could power transistors be used instead -possibly normally-connected power transistors triggered by low-powered reverse-biased transistors acting as the negistor/s?
