Bigger than Enron...

The Future. Now! At least some cunts trying. He's the only fucker other than the Russians who's flying to the ISS now. I'll never forget how everyone was laughing at him not that long ago when he

Tesla is a battery manufacturer.   Back in the 1970's Brtish Leyland was making a loss. But one British car manufacturer was profitable.

Big in terms of market cap. Small in terms of production numbers. Lots of hopium. 

 

Just remember that VW was the biggest a few years back due to people desperately trying to close positions on Porsche shares.

Suspect most of the Teslas are concentrated in the SE as quite a few of them about down here. I live next to a private hospital, walk past the consultants and Doctors getting out of their Teslas each morning...

How virtuous!xD

Or, put another way, even before Tesla, most large car manufacturers became so shit, so over managed, so finacialised, that they were probably losing money on the cars they make.

I cant remember the exact figure but both US n Euro car makers went from making 20% margins to just about breaking even, with the odd loss now n then.

Another victory for Jack Welch n the MBAs.

What's your unit of measurement?

I think it's market capitalisation. I don't believe it.

It is a damning indictment of the car industry that someone can come along and within a few years be making the best (or certainly the most coveted) cars on the market.

I definitely wouldn't say no to one. Go like shit off a shovel, very few moving parts to go wrong (quite pertinent to me as the driver of an ageing British luxury car!). My main complaint would be that they look extremely bland.

I covet one. If 'covet' means 'wouldn't touch with a shitty stick'.

It's a Matchbox car. Fortunately, they didn't have tiny little Red Robbos on the production line AFAIK.

Magnetic Flux Density?

 The SI derived unit of magnetic flux density is the tesla, which is defined as a volt second per square meter.
