Elon Musk hums while the rest of us tick.
If luxury is a state of mind, Elon Musk’s vision of the world’s future is a deluxe model that is challenging conventional wisdom of perceived fundamental truths and extraordinary reasoning.
Mr. Musk is the embodiment of the new era American dream. He is extremely intelligent, definitely well connected, and forging a new direction in both technology and marketing. He is one of the faces of the future being the founder of PayPal, the CEO and CTO of SpaceX and the CEO of Tesla Motors. Musk also is the chief product architect at Tesla as well.
From the technology to the marketing and selling of the Tesla Motors, the man behind the movement is a visionary with purposefulness and, perhaps even more significant, sustainability. Musk morphed to an influencer to from a rabble-rouser even among those sure that he was nothing more than a fad at best, such as Bob Lutz, the vice chairman of General Motors. Mr. Lutz subsequently admitted that Tesla was the inspiration for the Chevy’s Volt.
