A crash course in changing the world.
American Engineer and Co-Funder of Tesla Motors company. Eberhard was name by fortune magazine as one of the 24 top innovators of 2007. He is a self-described sportscar aficionado but derides American's dependence of Middle Eastern oil. Eberard decided to become a power player when he engeged himself in developing a preeminent electric high-performance automobile company (hence the inspiration of the name). Many have doubt about the ability of electric cars to perform at the same levels as traditional internal combustion engines, however Eberhard's company has acheived its goals, perviously thought to be infeasible. In simple terms it was never "cool" to have an electric sportscar, however now the rich and famous are finding the answer to their lavish lifestyles in an electric Tesla rather than a Lambourgini that get 8 miles to the gallon.
