Elon Musk, the media boss of Tesla and the space company SpaceX, took advantage of April 1 to joke through Twitter while its car brand is currently going through a difficult time.
Elon Musk published a picture of himself allegedly drunk and asleep with a “bankwupt” sign posted on his chest, saying that “despite intense efforts to find money, including a desperate attempt to Massive sale of Easter eggs, Tesla went totally bankrupt and bankrupt to the point that you can not even imagine it. ”
Elon was found passed out against a Tesla Model 3, surrounded by "Teslaquilla" bottles, the tracks of dried tears still visible on his cheeks.
This is not a forward-looking statement, because, obviously, what's the point?

Financially badly in point
This April Fool is a response to recent reports of significant upcoming financial risks for the heavily – indebted electric car manufacturer, which has not been profitable since its inception in 2003 . Its latest model, the Model 3 which must enable it to target a mass production, is delayed production. The share price of the group on Wall Street has dropped about 25% since the end of February.
Tesla is also currently under investigation by the US transport regulator NTSB following a fatal accident involving one of its cars in California on March 23rd. The NTSB had already investigated a previous accident involving an Autopilot-equipped Tesla in Florida in 2016.
