Agreed - unlike most company CEOs, he's actually an engineer with current engineering knowledge so he does seem to be able to contribute directly when being hands on, rather than it being a gesture.
That doesn't always help. Engineers have a habit of making terrible managers because they can't let go of the engineering and let their staff do their jobs - you do get some outstanding ones, but an awful lot of very bad ones.
As for Musk, isn't he basically admitting that he thought he knew better than the big car companies how to make a car, and is now realising that he doesn't?
