I was quite stunned to see them admit it. Shocked, really. I think it was a mistake to do so because it shows a lack of confidence. Using the word hubris sounds like that to me. Did Carnegie, Rockefeller, Sloan, Ford, McCormick, Edison, Bell ever say that? No. They changed the world. In order to have an impact as great as Elon wants to have on our planet, he shouldn't waste his time apologizing for Tesla's vision. He should fight for it. He MUST FIGHT for it if he is to have the impact he says he wants to have. I think that reaching for the stars is awesome and commendable. A more established company simply would not have the guts to do it. Too much group-think. I think we need to give the MX some time. My hope is that they will sort out the glitches and then we will see, in the end, that the MX is groundbreaking in more ways than simply being flashy. I applaud the guts. People discounted Steve Jobs repeatedly over two decades. Look what he achieved. His vision changed the lives of billions of people. They will soon sell their billionth iPhone. Just think about that scale. Unfathomable to me. I truly believe that the US needs more courage, bravado and, I guess, hubris. We have become a fat, lazy country that only does enough to be safe. Just look at what has happened to our auto industry. We were the cutting edge leaders. Now we are followers. Elon and Tesla are not followers. Bravo. Aside from believing in the mission and loving my car to death, I am so proud that this US conceived, designed and produced car is actually turning the auto world upside down. And all of that out a factory that produced just about the most boring and uncreative cars around: Corollas and Vibes. If that is hubris, I like it.
