Elon Musk to remain at Tesla for "several more years," personally inspects Model S

Elon Musk to remain at Tesla for "several more years," personally inspects Model S

Part of his duties through the rest of his tenure at Tesla will also reportedly include personally inspecting production examples of the Model S. To find out exactly what that entails, we reached out to the automaker for comment. According to Tesla spokesperson Christina Ra, Musk checks "Everything from functionality, to fit and finish. Anything from door handles to carpet to molding, to driving... The things we are potentially having to work on are not big things – 98-percent of the car is ready to go." Ra would not comment on exactly how many cars he checks at the Fremont, California facility, but tells us, "At a high level, he's looking at everything." We're still not exactly sure what that means, but its always refreshing to see a CEO down in the trenches – even if it might just be a publicity stunt.
