More trouble for Tesla after executives resign

"Since I joined Tesla on August 6th, the level of public attention placed on the company, as well as the pace within the company, have exceeded my expectations".

Elon Musk sipped whiskey and smoked marijuana during a two-and-a-half-hour podcast with comedian Joe Rogan that touched upon everything from flame throwers and artificial intelligence to the end of the universe.

Tesla's stock and bond prices dropped on Wednesday - linked to the row over Musk's comments about Mr Unsworth but also following an unveiling by Mercedes that presents a challenge to the electric vehicle maker.

"I want to be clear that I believe strongly in Tesla, its mission, and its future prospects, and I have no disagreements with Tesla's leadership or its financial reporting". "It's very hard to keep a vehicle company alive", Musk said. "I don't actually notice any effect ..."

Even before Musk's surprise August 7 tweet that he had funding "secured" for a go-private deal, Tesla had been under scrutiny from investors, analysts and short-sellers as it works to hit production targets and slow its cash burn.
