Elon Musk “Jokes” That Tesla Has Filed For Bankruptcy

Elon Musk “Jokes” That Tesla Has Filed For Bankruptcy:

In what we assume is a morbid April Fool’s joke, late on Sunday Elon Musk decided to have some “fun” with his 20 million Twitter followers and unknown number of investors, and after previewing earlier in the day that he will have “Important news in a few hours …”, the Tesla CEO tweeted that “Tesla Goes Bankrupt Palo Alto, California, April 1, 2018 — Despite intense efforts to raise money, including a last-ditch mass sale of Easter Eggs, we are sad to report that Tesla has gone completely and totally bankrupt. So bankrupt, you can’t believe it.”

There was more “humor” – in a subsequent tweet, Musk tweeted that “There are many chapters of bankruptcy and, as critics so rightly pointed out, Tesla has them *all*, including Chapter 14 and a half (the worst one).”

Musk concluded joking that after the bankruptcy, he “was found passed out against a Tesla Model 3, surrounded by “Teslaquilla” bottles, the tracks of dried tears still visible on his cheeks. This is not a forward-looking statement, because, obviously, what’s the point? Happy New Month!”…

Why the Fire that Incinerated a Tesla Was Such a Nightmare to Put Out

Why the Fire that Incinerated a Tesla Was Such a Nightmare to Put Out:

On March 23, a 38-year-old man driving a Tesla Model X rammed headfirst into an unshielded highway median while traveling south on U.S. Highway 101 near Mountain View, California. Two other vehicles subsequently rear-ended the SUV, which caught fire after the driver, who later died from his injuries, was pulled from the wreckage.

According to news reports, the car blaze shut the highway for 5 hours, firefighters required special suits for cleanup, and at one point had to call Tesla for help in containing the blaze. On Tuesday (March 27), the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) announced a field investigation into the incident.

“Tesla, without any doubt, is on the verge of bankruptcy.”

“Tesla, without any doubt, is on the verge of bankruptcy.”:

Just a few days ago, shareholders of Tesla approved an almost comical pay package for their cult leader CEO Elon Musk that could potentially put $50 BILLION in his pocket over the next decade.

Let’s put this figure in perspective: at $5 billion per year, Musk would make more than every single CEO in the S&P 500. COMBINED.

In other words, if you add up the salaries of all the CEOs of the 500 largest companies in America, it would still be less than the $5 billion per year that Mr. Musk stands to earn.

That’s pretty astounding given that Tesla’s own 2017 4th quarter financial report (page 24) states that Elon “does not devote his full time and attention to Tesla”.

The Tesla Model 3 Will Need to Improve Its Charge Time, Fast

The Tesla Model 3 Will Need to Improve Its Charge Time, Fast:

Tesla wants the upcoming Model 3 to be the first electric car for everyone, but to do so, it’ll need a seriously amount of infrastructure in place. Fast charging is critical to the electric car’s success — drivers need to be able to top up the car’s juice in an emergency — but Tesla’s network of fast chargers might not be adequate for the company’s production targets.

We don’t know for sure how long the Model 3 will take to charge, but we can reach an approximation based on Tesla’s current range. The 90kWh Model S, with a range of 294 miles as tested by the EPA, takes around 10 hours to charge from a NEMA 14-50 power outlet. From a wall connector, that can drop to as low as five hours and 30 minutes.

Germany Ends Tesla Model S Subsidies In Massive Blow To Company’s Government Funded Business Plan

Germany Ends Tesla Model S Subsidies In Massive Blow To Company’s Government Funded Business Plan:

Apparently German government officials have finally woken up to the realization that it’s utterly ridiculous to use tax revenue generated primarily from middle and low-income households to fund subsidy payments to rich people buying $100,000 luxury sports cars.  As Business Standard notes this morning, the German Federal Office for Economic Affairs and Export Controls announced that it will no longer subsidize the Tesla Model S as it can not be delivered in a configuration that meets the 60,000 euro price limit.

A German government agency has removed Tesla’s Model S from the list of electric cars eligible for subsidies because it is not available in a version that falls within a 60,000 euro ($71,448) price limit.

Tesla customers could not order the Model S without extra features that pushed the price of the car above the limit, a spokesman for the German Federal Office for Economic Affairs and Export Controls (BAFA) said on Friday.

German magazine Auto Bild had reported that BAFA was looking into the issue and could take Tesla off the eligibility list.

According to Reuters, Germany launched their incentive scheme, worth about 1 billion euros, last year.  The funding requirements were shared by the German car industry to boost electric car usage. A price cap was included to exempt premium models.  Under the subsidy scheme, buyers get 4,000 euros off their all-electric vehicle purchase and 3,000 euros off plug-in hybrids.

Is This The Tesla Killer?

Is This The Tesla Killer?:

We all know the story behind Fisker, it was one of the world’s first plug-in hybrid electric vehicles in 2008, and even had a legal spat between Tesla, but shortly after in 2012 the company crashed and burned in bankruptcy. Last year, Henrik Fisker decided to relaunch his brand. He thought that one failure wasn’t enough—-just like Elon Musk’s SpaceX rockets. During Fisker’s relaunch, he made a shocking comment that caught the attention of Musk and it was on the claims of a new breakthrough in battery technology using graphene-based hybrid material that would revolutionize battery storage and make Musk’s batteries appear obsolete.

Thirteen months passed, and Musk wrote off Fisker’s claims, as Musk decided to focus on other things like his Boring company. That might of been Musk’s fatal flaw, because Fisker just came out and dropped a bombshell on the electric vehicle (EV) industry: ‘New Fisker Batteries 2.5x Density, 500 Miles Per Charge & Charging in 1 Minute’..

Musk will shortly developed uncontrollable convulsions with the understanding his Gigafactory producing thin-film lithium batteries could be obsolete.

Amid Management Exodus, Tesla Fires Hundreds Of Workers

Amid Management Exodus, Tesla Fires Hundreds Of Workers:

In an absurd demonstration of Musk’s bizarre management style, the company said the mass terminations have “generally boosted worker morale”, as high-performing employees have been rewarded; it was unclear what the up to 700 layoffs, pardon, exit events did to worker morale.
