41 Interesting Facts About Tesla Motors

For investors, Elon Musk is a polarizing figure.

He clearly sees the big picture and has started multiple companies that could be considered to be extremely successful by almost any set of criteria: Paypal, Tesla Motors, SpaceX, and Solar City are all valued at over $1 billion – an impressive feat, to be sure.

Musk also continually aims to bring us game-changing technologies that will improve society. The Hyperloop, Gigafactory 1, and a colony on Mars are just some of his recent ideas or contributions. Like them or hate them, they are bold and audacious plans. That’s just something we don’t see enough of these days.

By the same token, Elon Musk often gets ahead of himself. He sees things so well in advance that his projections and goals often don’t end up being grounded in reality. For example, the WSJ has reported here that Tesla failed to meet more than 20 of his projections, missing ten of them by nearly a year on average.

These types of misses don’t sit well with investors, some of who already think the stock could be overvalued. After all, despite the optimism around future prospects for Tesla Motors, the company has technically lost $2.5 billion since inception.
