Interessante Dokumentation über Tesla, einmal aus Bullen- und einmal aus Bärensicht (in der Sprache der Börse).
The documentary includes a fascinating chat with Tesla founders Martin Eberhard and Marc Tarpenning. The two pioneers recount how they came up with a strategy to get an electric car to market (at that time a seemingly insane undertaking), and how they originally hooked up with Elon Musk, one of the few people in the VC world who had the vision to see what they were trying to do.
Eberhard and Tarpenning should get their due, and this documentary lets them tell the story in their own words. Many accounts highlight Elon Musk as the lone genius behind Tesla’s winning three-phase strategy to bring an affordable EV to market. However, as this chat with the two entrepreneurs makes clear, this was a collective plan at the outset, and all five founders were fully on board with it from the beginning (only later did controversial moves, personality clashes and management differences cause the split that led to Eberhard’s departure).
This video is well-supplied with rare old photos and video footage, including clips with Musk, as well as snippets from old CNBC news reports (some of these are pretty amusing in retrospect). There are also exclusive interviews featuring a variety of bears and bulls, including former Tesla employees, and journalists who’ve written about the company.
