Tesla Motors Should Get Into Personal Aerial Vehicles (aka Big Drones for People).
Through techonoly transfer from SpaceX, they have the aerial signal processing and controlling technology required (i.e. leveling etc).
1. Technology transfers between the companies have been known to exist. 2. SpaceX has developed advanced autonomous aerial controlling algorithms.
They could benefit of such an endeavor.
1. By means of publicity. 2. By means of attracting additional project funding. 3. By means of sales in a new market in which they already own most of the core technological components.
They have the electrical power storage technology required.
1. They develop and manufacture high energy density batteries. 2. The energy density exceeds that of the Ehang 184 AAV which is a supposedly working personal aerial vehicle.
They have the electrical motor technology required.
1. They develop and manufacture state of the art electrical motors with exceptional power to weight ratios. 2. Exceeding the engine specifications of the Ehang 184 should not be an obstacle.
They (and to some part also through SpaceX) have the technological premises for aerial autonomy and autopiloting.
1. Tesla Motors has a platform for geographic navigation in place with autopiloting coupling. 2. SpaceX has a platform for autonomous aerial flight from/to specific ground targets.
They (and to some part also through SpaceX) have the high performance to weight materials/composites/alloy technology required.
1. Both Tesla Motors and SpaceX are heavily reliant on exceptional materials and technology transfers in this field has been suspected.
The car as we know is in the very end of its life, 95% of the day a car is inactive, Tesla is working to fix that. A network of electrical self driving taxis would replace the need for a car and we will begin to look for an alternative personal transportation solution.
Musk announced in a Swedish newspaper that Tesla was having financial trouble, and not making enough profit.

There have already been multiple attempts at building personal flying vehicles, but none were financially successful.

Fallacy Of Previous This
The historian's fallacy is an informal fallacy that occurs when one assumes that decision makers of the past viewed events from the same perspective and having the same information as those subsequently analyzing the decision.
Building the necessary infrastructure for casual aerial transport and traffic control would be extremely expensive and complicated.

Appeal To Belief
Argument from ignorance (from Latin: argumentum ad ignorantiam), also known as appeal to ignorance (in which ignorance represents "a lack of contrary evidence"), is a fallacy in informal logic. It asserts that a proposition is true because it has not yet been proved false (or vice versa).
The argument is too complex. You can switch to list view.
