    ... Tesla unveiled the Tesla Roadster to the public. Tesla Roadster unveiling in Santa Monica Congrats, Tesla!

    A lot has happened in those 10 years. It's a pretty amazing list in a relatively short time. I know I've missed things, add to it. :)
    • Sales of over 2400 Roadsters proved that driving electric could be fun
    • Tesla Factory in Fremont
    • Went public ... yay TSLA stock
    • Model S introduced to market
    • Govt loan paid back early, with interest
    • Superchargers deployed around the world
    • Tesla Stores and Service Centers opened internationally
    • Powerwall
    • Gigafactory
    • Model X
    • Intro of Model 3
    • Big auto manufacturers went from dismissing Tesla & electric cars as a fad, to either producing electric cars to compete or showing prototypes of what is to come.
    How many jobs have been created as a result?

    I was just at a service center and sat there, first admiring all of the cars, but then it struck me, seeing everyone buzzing around, how many high quality jobs that Tesla provides. And this is just the beginning. It must be immensely satisfying to step back every once in a while and see how far they've come and how much they've done.
