How Far Behind Tesla Is Big Auto? How Long Till It Catches Up?

3 hours 40 min ago

It may seem absurd to put Tesla ahead of Big Auto, but by many standards, Tesla seems to be far ahead. You don't have to take my word for it — Tesla [TSLA] is now the most valuable US car company, recently surpassing GM and Ford in market cap, and there's a reason or 10 why the investment community on the whole sees Tesla as a more valuable company despite drastically lower annual production/sales output.

This article isn't about proving that Tesla's ahead, though. It's actually a genuine, open-minded search for how long it'll take Big Auto to catch up to Tesla ... if it ever can. One widely held assumption is that large automakers can turn on a dime and crush Tesla at its own game "once the time is right." That's not true

Your Tesla May Soon Pay For Itself

5 hours 4 min ago

Will there come a day when your Tesla simply pays for itself? According to the Wall Street Journal, that day may be coming soon. "Thanks to ride sharing and the looming introduction of self-driving vehicles, the entire model of car ownership is being upended—and very soon may not look anything like it has for the past century. Drivers, for instance, may no longer be drivers, relying instead on hailing a driverless car on demand, and if they do decide to buy, they will likely share the vehicle—by renting it out to other people when it isn’t in use."
