Steve Ballmer (Microsoft 2007) laughs at the iPhone, now Bob Lutz (GM) laughs at Tesla?
Is Bob Lutz Wrong About Tesla Motors?
The famed auto veteran doesn't pull any punches with predicting Tesla's doom, but his criticisms might be misplaced.
Bob Lutz has a lifetime of experience in the auto industry. When he speaks, people listen. He's never been shy about his feelings about Tesla Motors either. It's hard to challenge an experienced veteran like Lutz, but Tesla also isn't your run-of-the-mill automaker. Since Tesla is also a disruptive technology company, the old rules might not apply in the same ways.
Great comparison in this interview with Steve Ballmer in 2007 about the iPhone.
