I found this update pretty enlightening. The people who think Elon Musk is just messing around should gather some insight from it.
As the only operational vehicle capable of taking significant amounts of cargo both to and from the International Space Station, SpaceX’s Dragon spacecraft is already a critical piece of the American space program. With at least 10 more station resupply missions over the next couple years, and with development of a human-rated Dragon and DragonLab underway, production of the Dragon spacecraft has increased significantly.

I don't think I have seen that many spacecraft in production since Apollo.
