Elon Musk Breaks Down During Interview

Elon Musk

Tesla declined to comment on the matter.

April 2017: Mr Musk talks to SoftBank's Masayoshi Son about investing. "I definitely did not get calls from irate directors". "It's a drama we shouldn't be watching". In his interview on Thursday, the CEO blamed short-sellers for this personal strife.

Even if his Tesla was on autopilot mode, last I checked the driver is still supposed to be alert and probably not tweeting things that will quickly become the subject of a federal investigation. Plus, the eccentric billionaire is the head of at least two other companies, including the rocket company Space X.

"This past year has been the most hard and painful year of my career", he told The New York Times in a recent interview.

"This past year has been the most hard and painful year of my career", Musk said in an hour long interview with The New York Times. He plans to keep his dual chairman and CEO roles, despite also leading SpaceX, Boring and other firms.

"I wish we could be private with Tesla", Musk said in an interview with Rolling Stone published in November. "They can have the job", Musk was quoted as saying.

'Is there someone who can do the job better? Musk was not involved in crafting the statement.

The paper said the electric vehicle company's swashbuckling boss choked up at times during the interview as he talked about working marathon hours trying to meet production deadlines.

Gordon said the board has to act now or be open to shareholder lawsuits.

"I've had friends come by who are really concerned".

In July, Musk got into a dust-up on Twitter with a British diver who helped rescue a Thailand soccer team and their coach from a cave, referring to him in one tweet as a "pedo guy".

"They can have the reins right now", said Musk. But the Wall Street Journal said the SEC was also investigating whether Musk downplayed the company's Model 3 production problems.

The stock closed down 9% on Friday, and it's down 21% since the day Musk tweeted he had secured funding for a private takeover of Tesla. And despite the furor of the past two weeks, efforts to attract additional talent have not changed or intensified since the tweet, the person said.

"Devasting New York Times piece filled with new facts", Cramer tweeted Friday.

Musk, 47, has a reputation for being an eccentric visionary. But Tesla isn't quite normal. Last year, the company only made 2,700 Model 3s, compared with 20,000 predicted by Musk last year. "They're at a point where they're going to have to distance their oversight from any prior relations".

The WSJ recalls that Elon Musk has made bold predictions for Model 3 production, but real production numbers fell short of these until this June, when Tesla finally ramped up the weekly production of the Model 3 to 5,000. Tesla stock is in bear-market territory, down more than 21 percent from its 52-week high.

"Without the cult of personality around Elon, they're just a cult of personality that's burning a lot of cash".

Aug 14: Tesla board forms special committee but has not received a formal proposal.
