Not far from Phoenix Arizona, out in the desert somewhere, perhaps in California or Nevada, sits Elon Musk. Wrapped in a cocoon of technology and innovation of his own invention, and surrounded by ranges of volcanic mountains on all sides, he envisions the future of transportation on an interstellar level. With his creative and technical team at Tesla and SpaceX, his plans include not only zero emission, high performance personal vehicles, but also exploratory extra-planetary travels, being quoted as having human touchdown on Mars within the next decade as a professional goal.
This man is ambitious, he has vision, and he is not about to sell out in the most literal sense, meaning his stock share in any of his companies.
“I don’t think it’s a good idea to plan to sell a company,” Musk said today in an interview conducted earlier today with Bloomberg West. “I don’t personally have any interest in selling. I think there’s a lot of innovation we can bring to the car business.”
That means that this man is in it for the long hall. With that sort of singular confidence in his vision for the future of a specific technology, one cannot help but be reminded of a young Bill Gates. What Bill Gates is to personal computing, or what Mark Zuckerberg is to social networking, Elon Musk is to the automobile, and spaceship, of the future.
Phoenix Valley auto and tech enthusiasts who are interested in viewing and test driving a Tesla Motors model vehicle have some hoops to jump through. One option is to visit the nearest retail outlet in Los Angeles, a relatively short drive from Phoenix Arizona. If a potential Phoenix Valley customer does not wish to drive out of state, they may contact Tesla to arrange a showing with an individual Tesla representative in the Phoenix Valley area.
