Elon Musk has revealed that he does not enjoy being the boss of Tesla.
“I rather hate it and I would much prefer to spend my time on design and engineering,” he told a US court. Tesla’s billionaire founder was speaking at the start of a trial where he is accused of pressuring the firm’s board members into a $2.6bn (£1.9bn) deal to buy a solar panel firm.
Shareholders claim the carmaker’s money was wasted on buying SolarCity, which – they say – was running out of money.
