I think Tesla is demonstrating the fact that volume manufacturing of complicated product with huge supply chain is hard... There is a reason why there hasn't been a new successful car company starting from scratch in the US since Chrysler.
It's relatively easy to design or engineer a car. You just need a few talented people to lead a small team. It's different when you have to build it.
But it must vexes Ford (or GM) executives that Tesla is not held to the same financial rules.

Ford is afraid of telegraphing moves like using brand new platforms and vehicles, they're lulling the competition
into a false sense of security by spending tens of billions on connectivity and mobility......
