    60 Minutes has a segment on Elon tonight (3/30/14) You can watch short segments on the CBS site and the whole thing on the CBS app.

    Nicely done by 60 Minutes. They managed to pack in a lot of info on Elon's history, family and his companies/products in a short segment.

    60 Minutes said Model S does 0-60 in 4 seconds flat.

    And Model S goes for "about $100k."

    You never see too much on the Musk boys. Very blonde and cute.

    There are a couple of segments on the website that weren't in the TV show... perhaps they were edited out because the basketball game went too long. Thanks for posting these.

    Maybe sounds from the filming vehicle? Pretty lame, should have been edited out if that's what it was.

    I don't think it was. You can hear the fake motor sound revving up as the Model S takes off and the chase car was going same speed. Guess it could be the chase car but doesn't seem like it.

    I watched it yesterday - It was a really good segment into the background backstory of Tesla and its failures, but unexpected success. Off to Walt Disney soon to make an animated featured film from it because the story is almost too cliché.:p

    The sound editor looks at the segment and thinks "there are no sounds coming from that car! Damn sound person screwed it up! Good thing I've got some car engine sound clips around here."

    Other than that horrible error the segment was great. A little more of the greater points would have been nice but they did justice to a lot of them and didn't show the showy burning car clip.

    I don't want to dwell on the gossip side of the Elon Musk story but I thought that he and Talulah Riley were now divorced and had been separated for a few years. The segment seemed to show them as a couple. Not sure if its an old interview or if they were just hanging out together for the interview.

    They are divorced AND together. If fact, they are taking the cross country trip together with his five boys right now. Who knows the true details? I'd just call them a modern couple in which a traditional marriage expectation didn't work.

    Can someone post this video on youtube/vimeo? When I click on those cbs links I can only see short clips/previews, would like to see the whole show. My guess is they blocked this traffic from outside USA.

    And then CBS apologized for the engine noise that was added in error.

    CBS says engine noise added to Tesla Model S was 'error' - San Jose Mercury News

    I do not get cable TV nor do I have a roof top antenna. I have an iPad and using the CBS 60 Minutes app ($5) I downloaded the show and watched it yesterday. The app also gives you additional short videos that didn't make it into the broadcast version.

    The "engine noise" error was hilarious.

    I don't think it's ever acceptable for new programs to add sounds effects like that. Even if it were an ICE, it would not be acceptable.
