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.
