Sarah Lacy talked to Elon Musk of Tesla Motors and SpaceX during PandoMonthly and went into detail on what other entreprenuers should do while raising venture capital, why he isn't going to be doing another Internet startup, his thoughts on CleanTech, the launch of SpaceX, and finally, his plans for the future.
"Tesla Model S has received a lot of very excited reviews from major trend setters in the auto sphere and now every single Tesla on the road will carry the message that the world has changed and there is no way back. Era of 19th century technology driven by controlled explosions under the hood is coming to an end."
"We have the rEVolution happening in auto industry in front of our eyes now. Tesla is breaking the spell about Electric Cars and making the process of car sale completely different experience."
"This is the main point of Tesla Models S - Electric Car that is better than luxury conventional car - To Break The Spell. You do not need to sacrifice anything in order to drive electric car with Tesla - you do not need to be a nerd or "crazy tree hugger"to appreciate it - extreme is only in its performance and technology powering it."
Tesla Models S is much more than just Lithium battery on wheels!
"Now CNBC is joining the Bloomberg and Barron's with our Next Big Thing - Electric Cars and strategic commodities to make it happen - Lithium, REE and Graphite. Big players must have been already positioned themselves at the Sector Low and waiting for the general public to wake up with Tesla Model S in the headlines. You still have the luxury of building your own collection with Lithium Juniors, which are in a depressed state of the mind today."
