Before I watch a 108 minute video, is there any mention of working on the design of the Model 3?


Agreed. Also is the full 108 just the Tesla guys or was this the full Tesla segment?

I skimmed it real quick. It looks like that was the only Tesla segment.

Funny, when any of the Tesla/SpaceX employees get asked about Elon, everyone has this smirk on their faces. I am guessing Elon as a boss would be very close to what good old Stevie used to be. Reading between the lines would be like, yeah Elon can be a gigantic a-hole, but thanks to that the product is great. Anyway, good luck to Elon and good luck to people working for him…

only wimps cant handle a-holes

And thanks to working with Aholes like Elon they bought really nice houses in Palo Alto when their stock options materialized.

Cool to learn that the idea for Model S, occurred inside a tented area in the back of SpaceX…

And they didn’t talk much about Model X… WTF is it??? *looks at watch*

Interesting find. Thanks.
