Chevy has armed the redesigned Silverado with fresh features and new engine options. But is the pickup packing enough heat to take on Ram and Ford? Plus, Tesla’s week in review: Musk’s going-private tweet and hype vs. reality.
Tesla's story has been such a soap opera that it's hard to know which twists and turns are worth heeding. Tesla CEO Elon Musk's pathos-laden interview last week with The New York Times might seem like just another distraction, but it's probably as important as anything to do with Tesla's manufacturing or sales.
Matthew Simoncini, who retired after guiding Lear to record sales and profits, was the highest-paid CEO at publicly traded U.S. automotive companies last year, according to the Automotive News/Equilar CEO Compensation study.
Elon Musk said nobody reviewed his tweet about the plan to take Tesla private before he posted it, the New York Times reported, citing an interview in which Musk frequently teared up. The report also said Musk's rocket company, SpaceX, could help bankroll the going-private transaction.
