    Interesting article, though I must admit some concern that the new hires mentioned are from high growth application markets rather than high growth consumer product manufacturing backgrounds. But the Tesla "experience" is heavily reliant on the online experience, so hopefully these folks will provide the value their CVs seem to promise.

    Yeah, that was my thought as well... that Tesla is more of a Silicon Valley tech firm rather than a traditional auto manufacturing (or assembly) company. So, it would make sense to apply tools and techniques employed by other tech firms to grow their market.

    I worked at FB when growth first became a priority (2008). I'm still trying to figure out how growth translates from a free social network to a consumer product. Curious to see it play out in practice.
