    Golden handcuffs indeed

    This is quite a commitment for Musk as well. The buck (profitable production of Model S in 2011) stops with him. Good luck and Godspeed!

    This seems to imply that he no longer WANTS the job ....:confused:

    My understanding is he never did want to be CEO - he would rather devote more time to new ventures ... but at this point he hasn't been able to find someone suitable to take on that position to his satisfaction, and during this critical time in the company's development he needs to keep a close eye on it.
