I've been reading the press coverage of the recent event where Elon discusses the history of Tesla with shareholders. USA today posts at Elon Musk recounts the secret history of Tesla Motors the dialog but there seems to be a number of inconsistencies, one that jumped out was: "After being told that AC wouldn't make an electric car just for him, Musk says he asked if he could make one himself. That's what led him to the consortium that would launch Tesla." and "Musk says he "was basically the chief designer of the body" of the original Tesla roadster. And he adds: "I don't think I'm a good designer." His inspirations: The Ferrari and Porsche." Is this just inaccurate reporting or have Martin and Mark been written out of history?
