    Great response when asked about hydrogen fuel engines (39:24). "Its the future and it always will be the future"

    Great interview. You have to feel for Elon, this was around the worst moment for him. Tesla was getting hammered in the press. As a smart person he knew that it was all BS but couldn't do anything to stem the negativity.

    I'm very glad that he had a huge day yesterday to balance out the last three weeks.

    Thank you, Daimler!

    Hey, my husband and I went to that dinner! The place was packed with something like 1,200 people (apparently it was the LAWAC's highest-attended event EVER). Quite a few Roadsters and Model Ss lined up at the valet. :)

    Elon was great, but as you can see in the video, he also seemed really tired. At the same time, it was good to see him finally expressing some anger at how unfair the scrutiny in the press has been... I was very happy to hear him pushing back... Hope he gets some rest!

    So wait, Daimler is the one who came through on Christmas Eve? That's the story Elon has been telling that happened in 2008 and it was down to the last hour, but he would never say who it was?

    I've heard him say it before.

    @ 2:22 "It kinda sucks running a public company".

    Watched that one repeatedly. :biggrin:

    Explaining every swing in Tesla stock price would be a full-time job in itself!
