All the way back in 2006, billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk posted his tongue-in-cheek “secret” plan for Tesla Motors on the Tesla website. In it, Musk explains the value and purpose of launching the Tesla Roadster – the first fully electric, high-performance sports car. He plainly demonstrates the economic logic and the environmental benefits of his company’s business plan. He lays out his long-term vision to reduce battery waste and CO2 emissions and, most important, to move into the affordable family-vehicle market. getAbstract recommends Musk’s master plan to auto industry enthusiasts, environmentally responsible entrepreneurs and Tesla historians.
