Tesla, and any other company, is valued with a market cap based on future projections - not on past sales. So comparing it to Ford is completely pointless as they have entirely different models and paths forward.

One thing people forget about Tesla is that all of their cars will include their proprietary automated driving technology. Once they reach a relatively large % of cars on the road they'll be in a position to dominate the automated car market, which will in 10-20 years be at or near 100% of the market. Even if they aren't selling every car, they can still make a push to sell their automation hardware/software to other manufacturers at high rates which will make their competitors more expensive and less attractive, ultimately leading to more sales for Tesla.
