Elon Musk drops rap song

Elon Musk drops rap song

Tesla attributed the production decline to the cancellation of lower-priced versions of the Models S and X, a move the company said was created to differentiate the more expensive vehicles from the Model 3. But because Musk and his leadership of the company are so intertwined Musk has regulators "over a barrel".

Musk's tweets became weirder and less related to Tesla but in February he posted a tweet saying "Tesla made 0 cars in 2011, but will make around 500k in 2019".

The news in Tesla's investor disclosure could also hurt chairman Elon Musk's chances in federal court Thursday, analysts said.

Musk countered that the tweet contained nothing new and did not need advance approval. He has also accused it of violating his constitutional right to free speech.

Musings about the reason for the drop in production and sales are many, but the figures may at least help make sense of a "series of freaky moves" made by the carmaker in recent months, from price drops to price rises, store closures and re-openings as it shored up costs to bring to market the Standard Range Model 3.

Biden seemed to criticize his own party for walking away from the demographic in a nostalgia-drenched, 40-minute address. He doesn't get it if he's not understanding the women think their space was violated, that they were disrespected.

Musk's lawyers countered that the earlier tweet merely restated a forecast he had given on January 30, when he said Model 3 production could total 350,000 to 500,000 vehicles.

Musk also said in a December interview with "60 Minutes" that he would not allow all of his tweets to be proofread, though he insisted that he planned to comply with the settlement terms out of "respect" for the "justice system".

In the meantime, Tesla shares suffered a major stumble, falling over 10 percent Thursday morning after the company said it had delivered only 63,000 cars in the first quarter of 2019, far below analysts' expectation of 76,000. "Funding secured." - August 7, 2018.

The track, which was released on the SoundCloud page of Musk's fictitious record label "Emo G Records" on Saturday, March 30, pays tribute to Harambe, the gorilla who was shot and killed at the Cincinnati Zoo in 2016 after a 3-year-old boy climbed into his enclosure. He retained the role of CEO.

"The issue isn't that he corrected the tweet, it's that he was supposed to get approval before he did it and he did not", said Charles Elson, a professor of corporate governance at the University of Delaware.

The saga of Elon Musk versus the Securities and Exchange Commission has been going on for what seems like years.

As of Thursday's close, Tesla shares were down 19.5% so far this year.
