The true star of the show was not the model T. The true star, was what demand created.As a comparison, Ford sold about as many original Model A as Tesla did Roadsters in the first two years.
Ford took about five years to get to half a million cars sold after launching the Model T. Tesla took three years.
Production hell hit the Model T line really hard! And Ford didn't have to advertise for nearly a decade once the Model T was selling half a million a year. Remind you about Tesla?
Anyhow... Those were cars that were really different in their time. And that's how this is today, pushing forward the competition. If Tesla could make as many as they could sell...
it was the innovation of the moving Assembly line. It reduce the time from 12 hours to build a vehicle to 1 1/2 hours. Wow.
that’s pretty awesome.
