Check out Elon Musk in his over-sized suit explaining the specs of the first production Tesla Roadster. This previously unseen video was filmed by Jay Leno’s team back in 2008. Jay Leno being a huge car geek, dug up this video and shared this cool video on Youtube.
It is astonishing how fast technology advances over a decade. Imagine telling 2008 Elon Musk that his startup would sell over 100,000 electric cars a quarter. Mind-blown moment for sure.
Watching Elon Musk describing how electric vehicles work back when it first started reminds me of Bill Gates trying to popularize “the internet” back in the 1990s.
