So we may have been a little bit late to the table with the news that Martin Eberhard is out like a dead bulb as CEO of Tesla Motors, everyone's favorite electric car company that's not yet delivered any electric cars. We did report they'd installed Ze'ev Drori as the new CEO, so we guess we brought something to the game. But now we've got word from a couple of very reliable sources that the problems with the roadster's causing some serious problems elsewhere in the company. Full and very quick report from our tipster after the jump.

"Tesla's Whitestar and Darkstar programs are DOA. The Detroit office is in trouble. it's all hands on deck to get the roadster to work"

Yeah, well, we kinda saw this one coming, we just kinda hoped it wouldn't happen.
