That Jerome Guillen promotion is a good one. It might not be much known here at MNL, but he earned a great deal of respect among the Tesla early adopter community, during the launch of the Model S, by constructively engaging with owners.LTLFTcomposite wrote:There are definitely similarities between Trump and Musk.

I'd say he's more of a bombastic, posturing narcissist. OTOH, I'm obviously not the first to notice at least a physical resemblance to a certain earlier individual with most of the same character traits, so you may be right: https://www.google.com/search?q=trump+m ... 66&bih=662SageBrush wrote:Trump is a fascist psychopath, while Musk is a benevolent industrial genius.LTLFTcomposite wrote:There are definitely similarities between Trump and Musk.

Elon Musk announced that Tesla needs to drop two out of seven possible colors – Obsidian Black and Metallic Silver – from the base offer, to simplify manufacturing.
Both colors still will be available to order, but as a special request and will cost more. We believe that the time of delivery could be then increased a little bit (as in the case of most all special orders) if you choose either of these special colors.
Elon Musk encourages that there will be no problem with spare parts in all colors, even those which were removed from the base pool.
(same guy) Yet another finance executive is leaving TeslaJustin McAnear, vice president of worldwide finance and operation, is parting ways with the electric-car maker, said the people, who requested anonymity because the information hadn’t been made public. McAnear confirmed his last day at Tesla will be Oct. 7 in a statement obtained by CNBC.
Last week David Morton, chief accounting officer, stepped down after only a month on the job at Tesla Inc. The company said in a regulatory filing that Morton was leaving due to the level of public scrutiny and the pace at the company but not over any disagreements with Tesla's leadership or its financial reporting.
That followed a report on Friday that Gabrielle Toledano, head of human resources, would not return to Tesla after a leave of absence. And communications chief Sarah O'Brien confirmed that her last day on the job was Wednesday. She wouldn't give a reason for her departure, which she said has been in the works for two months.
