    I am very curious....is there any sort of relation between the two men today? Are they bitter enemies? Are they completely ignoring each other? And what is Martin Eberhard up with doing - today?

    He owns a Tesla or he did anyway and he is on this forum.

    I thought Martin left the VW gig over a year ago.

    Longer even than that, I believe. I found this quote in an article dated November 2010 about the electric Golf:

    e.g. [Eberhardt] with the yellow hi-mileage Roadster? I thought it was just his nom de plume.

    From what I can tell, they are both professional and intelligent enough to know that further antagonism wouldn't benefit either, but both are antagonistic enough that they aren't likely to be business partners in the near future.

    It isn't a pretty part of Tesla history and it should be left as history, and any similar issues should be avoided where possible.

    Boy, do I remember how the Eberhard partisans howled when he was pushed out. Safe by now to say that Musk has been vindicated in his decision.
