Tesla motors on, shaking up the industry

It may be a temporary bubble but the stock value of electric car company Tesla has now surpassed Fiat.  I can't tell if he is saying it through gritted teeth but Bill Ford, exec Chairman of Ford Motors, says “My hat’s off to them,”  noting that “..It’s really hard to start up a company, particularly in the auto business, and be successful.”

If you've never heard of Tesla look them up. It's a good story and they are headed up by Elon Musk, who also founded the company. He has a name like an evil corporate titan in a sci-fi or super-hero comic but is the real article, a maverick entrepreneur with a hell of an imagination and buckets of relentless determination.
