Yes Mr. Musk is as rich as Midas, and maybe arrogant, but he is totally focused and very serious about everything he does. He also surrounds himself with the best engineers and other employees, and insists that they are just as dedicated as him. Given the quote at the beginning of this post, there can be no doubt that Tesla is a major force to move the world to a more viable future.

The document this post reviews is over 100 pages long, and is full of details. This post will provide a few words and figures, but if you are interested – you might considering downloading the full document, which is linked in this post.

Before this post you had probably never heard of Tesla's Lathrop Factory (see page 2, Author's Comment). Now I have another new term for you: Tesla Megafactory. Go through the link below, and you will understand.
