Is Elon Musk correct about Austin?

And that seems to be working. The article says he's going to build a billion dollar plant for electric truck production. It also listed three or four other California companies that have announced moves to Austin.
There will also be tons supply-chain companies that will follow. An auto factory needs a massive amount of supporting industry to function.

While some of this is in place due to other auto plants in the state, they’re in Arlington and San Antonio, much too far to support Austin.

With all the technical people in Austin that can't make the city's web page, maybe Musk needs to look elsewhere?
What happened to the semiconductor research center? Dell manufacturing? You get the idea.

I live not far from the factory they are building. They started building at least a month before it was announced that the deal was done. My property value has already jumped around 25%. The size of that place is amazing. They said 2500 acres. They already have huge 3 story tall buildings up
