By now you know Tesla unveiled their new Model S which is the Tesla D. The Tesla D is a new dual motor all wheel drive version of the S. I read 0-60 times of 3.2 seconds, wow.
Tesla Media Coverage
What I found most interesting was the search results and coverage of the Tesla D unveiling. I searched google for “tesla d” and as I looked at the top results I realized I did not see Car and Driver articles in the top 10, nor Motor Trend, or Automobile, or any other traditional car magazine. The top result was engadget which is clearly a technology focused site. Others were newspapers and various results which will change over time.
What Tesla has achieved is unparalleled. Not only did Tesla redefine the auto industry they have bridged the gap between two industries, auto and technology. It is always interesting to see these types of gaps bridged. As an example, you may remember when the IT group and programmers of a company were in different buildings and rarely spoke to others within a company, now they sit and work side by side with marketing groups, business groups and others. There are many examples like this.
The convergence of autos and technology has never been so pronounced as what Tesla has accomplished.
Hats off to Tesla. I cannot wait to see what is next.
