Model T vs. Tesla
Henry Ford did not invent the automobile or the assembly line, but he had a vision about how to build better ones. In the beginning, he and his team started out with the first version of the Model A, which sort of looked like a giant baby carriage with a steering wheel. This model served kicked off a series of production models and prototypes that took them to the letter T. The result was a not just a car, but an entire assembly line capable of mass producing the Model T in a way that became increasingly cheaper and more efficient. The last Model T rolled off of the Ford line in 1927 after sold more than 16.5 million units (still ranks 8th all time on the list of most cars sold).
