Niedermeyer@bloomberg -- In lieu of lowering costs, Musk says future Teslas will use autonomous-drive technology, which will enable the cars to earn money for their owners by joining on-demand taxi fleets when not in use. According to Musk, the revenue from this gig economy could significantly offset and at times potentially exceed the monthly loan or lease cost, raising the possibility that your future robo-Tesla could pay for itself. If this sounds too good to be true, it's because it probably is: Tesla is just one of many companies eyeing the autonomous-mobility market. So the amount of money your Tesla will be able to earn competing with Uber, Lyft and others will be minimal, while the cost of owning a $35,000 vehicle will be extremely high relative to using these mobility services.
