Elon Musk says Tesla doesn't 'deserve' market value

Elon Musk says Tesla doesn't 'deserve' market value

Musk's Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM) - or Godot - is ready to start digging the first among these network of tunnels.

Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) has been ahead in its aim of getting a full autonomy for its electric vehicle, as it continues to improve its Autopilot and achieve a self-driving capability over the next two years.

One interesting takeaway on this final point is that The Boring Company will start investigating technologies that can turn the excavated dirt into bricks to construct tunnel structures. It might look like a giant chip pick-and-place machine or a super high-speed bottling or canning plant, and you really can't have people in the production line itself. According to the book, Uber CEO Travis Kalanick tried to get Tesla Inc to team up with his company.

Others believe the valuation is dependent on the price of oil, and Tesla's ability to produce the highly-anticipated Model 3 vehicle.

There will be "free frozen yogurt stands scattered around the factory" and a "Tesla electric pod auto roller coaster" as soon as the company production on the Model 3 reaches "volume production", Musk wrote in April in an email to employees.

The Boring Company is planning to triple the machine's power output, which has to coupled with relevant changes in its cooling systems as well. Upgrading the existing technology to tunnel and lay support round the clock is the objective.

All in all though, I think that the Hammers are the better side and in a dead rubber like this one, they will get the job done. He has a bright future in him and it's all down to him.

Third is automating the TBM so that it can run entirely on its own, without the need for human operators to improve efficiency (and safety).

How can this not be an agenda on Musk's plan? To make the tunnel more cost effective and efficient, its diameter is going to be less than 4 meters (14 feet) - whereas normal tunnels (one-lane road tunnels) are usually about 8.5 meters (28 feet) in diameter.

Further, one can not deny the fact that Musk also has (positive) ulterior motives for building underground tunnels across the globe. "And if one adds a vacuum shell, it is now a Hyperloop Pod which can travel at 600+ miles per hour", the site explains. Worst of all, I hear co-workers quietly say that they are hurting but they are too afraid to report it for fear of being labelled as a complainer or bad worker by management.

After Lee tweeted about how extraordinary that cost was, Elon Musk responded to him on Twitter, agreeing that "The economics are not yet compelling where housing and utility costs are low and property taxes are high".

Maybe the idea of building tunnels was always in the back of Musk's mind and he's only acting upon the same now when Tesla and SpaceX both are performing exceptionally well.

The company reiterated its forecast of delivering 47,000-50,000 Model S and Model X cars in the first half of 2017, a target it announced earlier this year. It's quite possible that he'll be able to apply the same principle to tunneling and make tunnels faster, cheaper and better than the competition.
