Elon Musk's manufacturing dreams just beginning



CAPE CANAVERAL - This week, Tesla founder Elon Musk sent his very own red convertible Tesla Roadster via his vast enterprises' rockets. It was the beginning of a whole new vision for travel - and for manufacturing. 

Musk has a vision that Forbes Magazine is ridiculing - the idea of an almost completely automated plant that makes a million Teslas a year via an underground tunnel to delivery parts to the factory floor. 
“The car industry thinks they're really good at manufacturing and actually they are quite good at manufacturing. But they just don't realize just how much potential there is for improvement. It's way more than they think,” said Musk, calling the pace of today's auto factories slower than "grandma with a walker....Why shouldn't it at least be jogging speed?"
