Elon Musk Opens up About the "Excruciating" Year He's Had

Elon Musk Opens up About the

The problem is, unlike Papa John's who will afforded the chance to improve their brand without their hapless founder, Tesla needs Musk at his best to compete at the World stage.

The interview comes after a very rough couple of weeks for both Musk and his electric auto company.

But a tweet Musk fired off last week has reportedly made him and the directors the targets of securities regulators, and may force the board to act. Musk later explained that his claim was based on repeated and ongoing conversations with the Saudis and tweeted the names of financial and legal advisors he said he was working with on the proposal to take Tesla private.

Musk admitted in an interview with the Times that the stress of running Tesla has affected his health.

"They can have the job".

Mr Hansen's complaint comes as the company's chief executive Elon Musk is being scrutinised for a series of tweets he made last week about taking the publicly listed company into private ownership. The company, which makes electric cars as well as batteries and solar panels, has been hit by questions about the production ramp-up for its Tesla Model 3 vehicle and its workplace practices.

"If you have anyone who can do a better job, please let me know", he told The Times. That puts Tesla about ten years ahead of the growth trajectory predicted back in 2013, when a skeptical Barron's cover story called the stock overpriced at $102 a share. "The worst is over from a Tesla operational standpoint".

In one weird moment in July, Musk labeled a British caver a "pedo" - or pedophile - after the rescuer dismissed the Tesla chief's idea for bringing 12 trapped Thai boys to safety in a miniature submarine.

On the tweet where Musk said he was considering taking Tesla private, which is now being investigated by the SEC, he said it was an attempt at transparency.

Musk's "tweets seem cryptic at best, and it is hard to see how he has complied with his duty to not be misleadingly incomplete". "They can have the reins right now", Musk tells the Times.

Nearly a week later, the CEO said the basis for that statement were conversations with Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund, which first expressed interest in helping take the company private in early 2017.

Members of Tesla's board of directors are reportedly concerned about his use of drugs like the sleep aid Ambien.

The Tesla board also briefly sought out a strong No. 2 to Musk - but has given up on that endeavor, according to the Times report.

It is not clear if that investigation will be complemented by one into Mr Hansen's complaint, which alleges that the company - on Mr Musk's direction - surveilled its employees.

Mr Musk, 47, said sometimes he did not leave the Tesla factory for three or four days straight, and that he had not taken off more than a week at a time since he was sick with malaria in 2001. The interview did not cover the multiple rounds of Tesla layoffs, workers that could have presumably helped Musk shoulder the load.

But Gordon said a CEO wouldn't live at the factory.

Taken unawares, the firm's board said this week that it has formed a special committee to consider going private.

Referring to the short-sellers, he added: 'They're not dumb guys, but they're not super smart.
