Every time I see one of these one of these Tesla / Apple comparisons I can’t help but think of the Betamax vs VHS history. Superior technology and being the first one out of the gate doesn’t always guarantee winning the race.
Not trying to start a Betamax vs VHS debate. Just presenting it as food for thought. It’s not always wise to pick comparables based on a preferred / preconceived outcome.
Most of the legacy vehicle manufacturers will go bankrupt.
No, they won't. Governments will have no choice but to support them IF and when it gets dicey for the financially already challenged. The currently healthy big boys will not only survive the EV wave, they will come out on top.
As I have said many times ... This isn't a 100m dash. It's a marathon.
PS: Don't misunderstand this comment. I am no friend of government subsidies / bailouts of any kind.
I've always thought recording length was the first consideration for the plebians…. I went with Beta for my first unit, I put up a 9 ft used satellite dish, for cheap, 24 hr free content in '84...and bgt a used Beta with 50+ tapes, for v.v.cheap, *$50) as that person wanted the 2 hr format of VHS...I upgraded to Super Beta, for even better quality, for video & music..it was cheap by then..later, also bought Super VHS, also used & cheap. Eventually, went to DVD
For now, Tesla is winning the 'recording time' aka 'Range War' as well as superior performance... As for legacy cos going BK...well, time will tell, but in the foreseeable future, most likely, not....certainly not all of them.
Picking a fight with Einhorn is neither smart nor productive and Teslarati pointing out Greenlight’s UK fine is nothing but stupid as Musk / Tesla have their own history of SEC fines and have various ongoing major lawsuits. The old “Glasshouse” analogy comes to mind.
