Talk about superheroes making the likes of the Man of Steel blush and Mr. Tony Stark mad with jealousy along with his Avengers buddies. The auto industry really is an empire filled with superpowers and dare-to-dream initiatives ripe for the taking like Lexus’s hoverboard and the advent of 3D printing a real-life automobile (we’re not kidding). At the forefront of this automotive advancement and technology — which already exists in ways we can’t even comprehend, really — is just one man. One man who may arguably sit at the top of a very important list of influences in the auto industry. His name is….
Elon Musk: Our Very Own “Iron Man” of the Automotive Industry
He’s actually been called that before, believe it or not. This is a man not only pioneering the very possible idea of colonizing Mars with SpaceX and even proposing a concept called Hyperloop (a high-speed transportation system you’d have to see to believe, and even then you might not believe it along with the likes of Uber’s Travis Kalanick)…. But potentially revolutionizing the auto selection market with Tesla Motors, a major player in the green manufacturing regime of electric vehicles.
We don’t have to be in the know when it comes to electric cars. We’re seeing them already. Gasoline-powered automobiles may be going the way of the Dodo, and that’s fine. But when you’ve got a man like Elon Musk delivering the very first electric sports car, the Tesla Roadster, and a slew of other revolutionary prototypes paving the way to a new auto industry, plus remarkable electric powertrain systems sold to Daimler, Mercedes, and Toyota, it’s pretty clear — this is the man, Elon Musk, ushering in the new era of automotive manufacturing and transportation in a big way. No question.
He Also Is a Co-Owner of PayPal
You know, that online payment service. Yep, that’s Elon Musk for you. Can you imagine Iron Man managing payment accounts with a smartphone (a smartphone that can also drive, perhaps)? The future’s coming, and Elon Musk leads the way.
