luckily for the majors, tesla and its peers are making such a small volume that it isn't going to kill any of the old-guard any time soon. 400 cars a week, GM makes that per HOUR.

If you imagine GM making cars 24/7 they'd produce about 1,000 cars per hour. Its incredible how big they are.

actually you are spot on. GM made 9,288,277 cars in 2012, works out to 1057 cars an hour.

you are probably right, don't they sell 10M cars+ globally each year?
