Someone spoke up and said that everyone worked extremely hard to get the car done, and that it was time to take a break and see their own family for a change. "I would say that people will have a lot of time for their families when we are broke," Elon Musk said.

Around 7 clock to Apell

Overview

Musk now had employees check in at 7 every Thursday morning for the latest material cost information.

They had to know the price of each part and have a convincing plan for future savings. If the engine cost 6500 dollars apiece at the end of December, Musk wanted to get 3800 dollars by April.

Anyone who makes grammar errors will be released

Overview

On the marketing front, Musk searched Google every day for articles about Tesla. If he found a negative report, he would hire someone to 'fix it' - even though Tesla's public relations workers could do little to influence the reporters.

One employee once missed a corporate event to attend the birth of his child. Musk immediately wrote him one eMailin which he stated, "This is no excuse. I am extremely disappointed. You have to clarify where your priorities are. We change the world and the story and either you are there or not. "

Marketing staff, whom in eMails grammatical errors have been dismissed, as have others who have not performed anything "fantastic" longer.

Incredibly intimidating

Overview

"He can be incredibly intimidating, but he does not feel good about how impressive he is," says a former Tesla leader. "Before meetings, we sometimes bet who he would go to today. If you told him that you would do something in a certain way, "because that's so common," you flew out of the room very quickly.

> I never want to hear that again. What we're up to is damned difficult and I do not tolerate half-heartedness, "he said. He completely demolishes people, and if they survive, he concludes that he can trust them. He has to be able to see clearly that he is just as crazy as he is. "This ethos spread throughout Company and everyone quickly understood that Musk was serious.

Losses

Overview

The loss of some of the early employees was able to cope with Tesla. With its strong brand, the company continued to attract the best talent, including employees of major automakers, who knew how to overcome the last hurdles on the way to delivering the Roadster to customers.

However, the main worry of Tesla now no longer involved labor input, technology or marketing: early 2008 began the company simply run out of money. The development of the Roadster had cost about $ 140 million dollars, far more than the first business plan for 2004 estimated. Still, Tesla was likely to have come far enough to raise more capital under normal circumstances.

Shortly before the nervous breakdown

Overview

But there were no normal circumstances. In the midst of the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression, the big automakers in the US came to the brink of insolvency. In this environment, Musk had to persuade Tesla investors to once again provide tens of millions of dollars, and these investors had to explain to their own investors why that made sense.

Musk puts it this way: "Try to imagine how you explain that you are investing in an electric car company, while at the same time you read everywhere that the company is no good and no chance, that there is a recession and that no one buys more cars. "To save Tesla, all he had to do then was sacrifice his entire fortune and drift to the brink of a nervous breakdown.
