I think he's critical to Tesla right now, it's too early for him to step back. EVs are still gaining traction and many people don't understand them. There is a huge amount of FUD and the media is shockingly bad at reporting on the facts around Tesla. He needs to continue to be it's figurehead, with him Tesla needs no advertising and people listen to him. I'd also like to see the Semi gain critical mass.Nowadays Wi fi camera is a have to have while trailing with such a long combo of truck and trailer. The wi fi would be pretty easy tech add for CT.
BTY... Nice Elon is staying with Tesla even though he hates the Tesla's constant required pressure.
Maybe its not worth be the second riches man on the planet to run a juggernaut like Tesla?
Elon’s exit strategy? SpaceX.<Snip>
Selfishly I would like him to work on electric planes next.
Agreed.Elon’s exit strategy? SpaceX.
SpaceX can cross the planet point-to-point with Starships. SpaceX disrupts transcon and International overseas air routes. Leftover are shorthop commuter players like Southwest - small planes really. Tesla sees consolidation not growth in airlines. Tesla can furnish energy, technology and BEpower systems without building the whole enchilada (factory, airframe,workforce, lobby and tarmac operations).
Elon has maybe 3 more Giga and 1 Tera battery factory plus Semi, Roadster2 and a Van left in his tank. Then, transition if Tesla has no further runway clear to innovate.
