Tesla: Shares fall after regulators launch Musk lawsuit

Genius Elon Musk has so many irons in the fire like many others was amazed at his SpaceX re use of Rocket boosters

Tesla’s Model 3 is the long-promised mass-market affordable long-range electric car that Elon Musk has been talking about ever since he put together his ‘secret master plan’ back in 2016.
Tesla could make a $25,000 electric car in ‘about 3 years’, says Elon Musk

But he has recently been talking about Tesla going further down market in the future with a smaller and even more affordable car.

Just reinforces his desire to go private imo.

( I don’t have any Tesla’s in the shed btw, just more efficient electrickery thingies for the near future).

It'll be fine, he just hired some 1st class highly skilled specialist employees, assigned to immediately take care of all problems.

A little more serious, the job of gathering space debris may be a major and lucrative field in the future. As he already placed his own piece of junk (car) floating around he got some experience, next some large 'space trash trucks' hauling in debris and bringing it back to earth for recycling. Something he could look into (and actually succeed). Somehow collectively financed by nations\companies who put all the trash up there.

Musk hasn't done his chances and reputation any good by some of what he's said over the last few years (e.g. the legal spat over that guy who helped with the rescue of the children trapped in the cave in Thailand). He should be a lot more circumspect about what he says (regardless of whether or not if there is any truth in what he claimed that guy's involvement was) - the public in general, and the investment industry in particular, get spooked by his sometimes (to "us") apparently irrational and outspoken outbursts because those are "not helpful" to the projects which do seem to be have a lot of relevance to the ongoing ecological issues situations.
PS: @RustySpoons
Maybe now thinking of changing your avatar?:rolleyes:

I had an Esprit, for a fortnight, many moons ago. Didn't come with the Russian agent though.

Being fibreglass in the main, they float unless persuaded to do otherwise.

Well, making it "not float" was what the 007 Lotus did "in spades" - so, please give the rest of us some tips on how to avoid that, as you obviously know how to do that !:-rofl2
IMHO, that means not driving any Lotus like most of us (certainly moi-meme!) might want to :-lmao
