Look back over the past decade, and you might notice that Tesla and Ford — specifically Tesla CEO Elon Musk and Ford — have had something of an adversarial relationship.
From Ford questioning Tesla’s business models and sustainability to Elon Musk describing the Detroit Automaker as having an environment like a ‘morgue,’ the two very different sides of the auto industry haven’t really seen eye to eye. That said, Musk has noted several times that Ford — like Tesla — managed to survive the last recession (all be it by the skin of its metaphorical teeth).
And during his recent sit-down interview with Kara Swisher from Recode:Decode (link here: https://www.recode.net/2018/11/2/18053428/recode-decode-full-podcast-transcript-elon-musk-tesla-spacex-boring-company-kara-swisher) Musk went further than he’s gone in his criticism of Ford, suggesting the company won’t survive the next recession.
Given many economists say that’s just around the corner — how likely is it that Musk is right. Or, is he doing what he’s very good at — building hype?
