How many $100,000 cars does Ford ship in a quarter.......?................... Thought so! Tesla sales growing at a 1,400% year to year growth rate and 100% month to month margin growth rate!!
What's Ford's growth rate? Under 10%.
GM went bankrupt. GM sold more cars than Ford. So, why did GM go bankrupt?
Let me tell you. There are 200 reasons. A bigger one is the legacy costs. Pension and medical costs could swallow a company. GM is a live example.
Does Ford have legacy costs? What do you think?
Yes but Ford just made car, Tesla is art on 4 wheels, you can just buy it to have fine art in front of your house, so you don't care of fire, of range, of short term tires, ...
And as any peace of fine art value is increasing like hell, buy a tesla you will be rich in a few years.
A Ferrari or Lamborghini is a work of art --- not a TSLA toy. Its really not a car for people its just a machine that does something, but with range issues, battery issues, tire issues, cant be free and just drive you have to plan your trip around non existent charger sites. If thats what you want buy it--I love freedom. And your TSLA still pollutes the world from power plants, thousands of batteries per car in land fills and oh yes--who has $80k for a kind of car
Why stop there? Build a shrine around the car. Get on your knees and pray on it. Do a pilgrimage to tesla factory. There are so many ways you can express your affection for a piece of aluminum and carbon fiber.
