"Okay, I'm in" 

The words of Elon Musk to engineer/entrepreneurs Martin Eberhard and Marc Tarpenning sixteen years ago this week, sparking the beginning of Tesla, the greatest electric vehicle start-up we have ever seen. 

Undoubtedly, the road has been long and winding with plenty of challenges encountered along the way. However, despite the constant trolling on Twitter and hopes of failure from the many critics, sceptics and fossil-fuel dinosaurs that hide behind computer screens, if Tesla's character, quality of product, constant innovation and fearless ability to push boundaries is anything to go off, then this is just the start and we should all be very, very excited.
