Volkswagen needs to wake up, Microbus-wise, because after a decade and a half of teasing the world about a reborn bus, Tesla basically just said that they’re going to beat them to the punch. Even if VW doesn’t seem to realize it, this is bad news for them.
Ealier today we reported on a mysterious ‘Project Goldfinger’ we discovered during a tour of Tesla’s Nevada Gigafactory. Everyone including Elon Musk claimed to have no idea what it was, but I’ve got a few ideas.
Mobileye, a supplier of vision-based sensor chips for self-driving cars, has cited concern over the reputation of autonomous technologies following the ending of its supply deal with Tesla, likely due to the fatal crash involving a Model S in May.
The first and perhaps most salient point from Elon Musk’s “Master Plan, Part Deux” was to “create stunning solar roofs with seamlessly integrated battery storage.” While it was laid out as more or less as a bullet point, this is really the thesis that drives this whole Tesla-SolarCity-Powerwall love triangle.
Elon Musk has finally published the details of his second “Tesla Master Plan” almost exactly 10 years after the automaker publicly revealed its first car. The new plan shifts Tesla’s focus towards expanding its energy endeavors with SolarCity, developing ride-sharing fleets and developing electric trucks.
If you take nothing else from Elon Musk’s bizarre, conspiracizing beef with Fortune, know this: the CEO of Tesla is hilariously petty.
The buzz hasn’t entirely died from that fatal Tesla crash in May, or the one that happened this week, but Elon Musk is already looking ahead.
Elon’s anti-journalist tweets are getting weird, man.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk is suggesting that a recent report from Fortune claiming the company may have kept a fatal accident out of the public during its huge stock sale is part of a conspiracy against the company.
Barrett Lyon has owned every model Tesla has ever made; a Roadster, a Model S and, now formerly, a Model X—which he returned to Tesla after filing a lawsuit against the company over the electric crossover’s numerous quality issues.
Elon Musk is on the brink of acquiring the the next critical component in a solar-electric transportation future. Tesla Motors just made a $2.8 billion stock-to-stock offer to buy SolarCity, one of the largest solar energy companies in the country. It also happens to be a company founded by Musk’s cousins and one…
In this weekend’s Elon Musk Says Some Wild Shit news, the guy claimed that the Tesla Model S can float and, apparently, function as a boat.
After a string of successful ocean landings, SpaceX’s latest Falcon 9 rocket crashed hard right into its drone ship.
Elon Musk has broken his Twitter silence over the recent claim that Tesla attempted to cover up owner claims of suspension issues on the Model S, suggesting that fraudulent claims of similar issues indicates a larger conspiracy.
The best “clue” for what Elon Musk was up to at his Pentagon meeting came from, as per usual, the man’s Twitter. In response to a CNN article musing over his mysterious visit, the SpaceX founder tweeted that it had something to do with a flying metal suit. Clearly, he’s not mad at Tony Stark comparisons.
Elon Musk, the billionaire businessman who wants to literally die on Mars after he puts an electric car in every American’s garage, just had a meeting at the Pentagon with the US Secretary of Defense. But neither Musk nor Secretary Ash Carter will disclose what they talked about.
Tweets are mysterious things. They’re sometimes witty, usually banal, and often garbage. But if you’re Elon Musk, your tweets can have a very real impact on how companies are valued. For instance, one tweet from Musk last night wiped out $580 million from Samsung SDI’s market capitalization. No joke.
When answering a question on some of Tesla Motors’ delays in production at the Code Conference, Elon Musk mentioned one particularly unusual delay: a shootout on the Mexican border. “Things move as fast as the least lucky and least competent supplier,” Musk explained.
