Re: Musk - the new Jobs

Tesla is a longer term play and they are producing real cars not vaporware promises. For Tesla to make a profit they need to get the price/sales/production rate/model mix balance correct. They have a reasonable chance at doing it because they have enough money to last a few more years. The fact they are producing cars means they have a good handle on the production aspect and should have a good idea about producing at scale. Scaling up from a modest production run size, while not trivial, is not as difficult as set up production.
