Facebook Inc’s (FB) Zuckerberg or Tesla Motors Inc’s (TSLA) Musk?

October 10th, 2013

market outlookVanity Fair made a mistake when it ranked Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) CEO Mark Zuckerberg ahead of Elon Musk on its list of “The New Establishment” in the November issue, Fool contributor Tim Beyers says in the following video.

Zuck certainly deserves credit for scaling Facebook to the point of serving more than one-seventh of the world’s population, but Musk is trying to entirely change how we think about human transportation. That’s a far tougher challenge, Tim says.

Plus, Musk has achieved so much already. Take the Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) stock story, a tale of spectacular success despite a well-publicized fire that consumed a Model S sedan last week. The carmaker also supplies electric drivetrains to big-name competitors and, at 16%, sports one of the auto industry’s best gross margins. Musk has built a car company that, for now, looks able to compete, Tim argues. Not bad when, just a year ago, betting on Tesla was akin to taking a leap of faith.

Should you keep betting on Musk? What about Zuckerburg and Facebook? Tim answers these questions, and more, in the video below. Please watch now, and then leave a comment to let us know where you stand.

    think about how Mr. Musk is hitting transportation. First the electric car, then space travel through rockets, and so far hyperloop. Mars is the goal for now. When we get to mars you need a rocket but we know we can get there through NASA. So what is the mode of transportation on such huge amount of land called mars. We can’t really on gas there since there is no gas. But we can create electricity anywhere as long as we have some form of motion. Then the hyperloop makes it easy to travel back and forth from mars and earth. Hyperloop uses a rail gun system that doesn’t gas yet again and can be used in space in a more efficient manor. Science fiction of giant spaceships might change a little with this. i’m sorry for my grammatical errors. lack of sleep.

    I like the article, but please, please, please stick to facts! The fire did not CONSUME the Model S. In fact, it never entered the passenger compartment. It did damage the car, but again, did not consume the car….

    I bet on both. Wait for the earnings at the end of this month and they will jump to all time high.
