I was at the Tesla event last night in Manhattan which announced the Motor Trend's Car of the Year award. Afterwards I was having a conversation with George B and he said although he and everyone at Tesla were very proud of the Motor Trend award he felt that Tesla Motors and Elon's vision is much more than "The Car". He wished there was an award that was "Bigger" .... I half-jokingly suggested "How about Time Magazine's Man of the Year"
On the drive home I got to thinking why not??? Tesla is a game changer for the auto industry and the planet?
Why not Elon Musk? Who else is changing the world in so many ways at once with Tesla, Space X, Solar City?
Or if Time does not want Elon, how about the Model S as man/machine of the year. In 1982 the PC won the title so the Model S would be eligible.
Does anyone know how to nominate or should we start an email campaign?
