Tesla's dethroning of GM and Ford shows the extent to which investors believe in Musk's vision that electric vehicles are the vehicles of the future. 

"Tesla engenders optimism, freedom, defiance, and a host of other emotions that, in our view, other companies cannot replicate," said Alexander Potter, an analyst at Piper Jaffray Cos., who upgraded the stock Monday after owning a Tesla for seven months.
