Quora: “Is it possible that Tesla will eventually be regarded as the DeLorean of this period of automotive history?”

Interesting question, but no. Tesla has built over 100,000 vehicles so far, with many more coming. DeLorean Motor Company only built 9,080 DMC-12s. Also, John DeLorean didn’t have the amount of money that Musk had/has.   Original Quora question – Is it possible that Tesla will eventually be regarded as the DeLorean of this period of automotive history?

Quora: “If Walt Disney were alive today how different do you think the theme parks would be?”

I’m always sad and bothered by these “What would Walt think/do…” questions. *MAYBE* people who worked CLOSELY with Walt back in the day could *POSSIBLY* give an acceptable answer on his behalf, but those people are, for the most part, gone. Walt was a family man. He loved people. He loved entertaining people. He was also a business man – although not as good a business man as his brother Roy – so it’s nearly impossible to tell how the Disney Parks would be today. I know this …

Quora: “What was it like to work with Walt Disney?”

During the 50th anniversary celebrations, I attended a cast-member only panel which featured several original Imagineers telling stories and answering questions. This question – “What was it like to work with Walt Disney?” – was asked and answered.

Quora: “Why is Disneyland so expensive?”

Disney is a business… a brilliant business that knows how to research and study the analytics of their products and services. Like any product or service in any market, prices are set primarily by consumers. If some new widget was available at the local store was priced at $1,000 but no one bought it, the price would come down, or the product would go away. In the case of Disney Parks, the price has continued to go up by leaps and bounds, and is expected to continue that …

Quora: “What are some interesting things to see at Disneyland?”

I love to find a bench or spot to sit/lean to just look and absorb the space. Take note of the way Walt and his Imagineers designed Disneyland. The pavement, the plants, the walkways, the colors. Look at the detail of the buildings. Look at how the theming for each area or attraction connects to each other. Also, just people-watch. Look at how some people enjoy the space, and how others are oblivious to their surroundings. Just a few of my favorite things to see at Disneyland: The …

Quora: “Was it fun to drive a DeLorean? How was the performance?”

It’s very fun to drive. And it’s very comfortable. It’s mostly fun because people love seeing the car. It’s got a unique look, and even if it wasn’t in Back to the Future, I think people would still enjoy looking at it. And when you’re driving on a nice stretch of road, with little traffic, it’s like you’re laying down, low to the ground, and just humming along. Very comfortable. As for performance, I live in Los Angeles, and I get get up to 70+ pretty quickly when …
