Elon Musk Says He’s Not Leaving California Despite Tesla Announcement
Elon musk said he was moving – like in the Tesla store – to Lonestar state, but he said something on Friday night that made us wonder if the plan was still underway.
We had the Tesla / SpaceX honcho at WeHo on Friday night in Boa and asked about two things. Our photographer wanted the truth about Elon’s plan to get rid of his material possessions, ala John lennon“Conceived”. We specifically asked about the legendary house he sold that was once owned by Gene Wilder.
Elon told us that he sold it to Gene’s nephew, on condition – that he retains his character. Elon sold him under the market, maybe because he’s a huge Wilder fan – we’re guessing “Willy Wonka”.
As we reported Elon lost 2 massive houses in California … Gene’s house which was listed at $ 9.5 million and another estate at $ 30 million.
As for the move … it looked like Elon was moving to Austin, and he said a few days ago that he was planning to open a Tesla giga-factory in Texas.
But on Friday night, we ask Elon, “Is that why you sold the house because you’re taking Tesla out of California. Are you leaving?” He replies, “No, I am not.”
I don’t know what he means, but it looks like the Tesla giga-factory is an attempt.
Our sincere thanks to
