Elon Musk: Tesla Is a Victim of Sabotage

Elon Musk reveals possible location of Tesla Gigafactory in Europe

The billionaire set out his future plans in a typically unorthodox fashion this morning

A Tesla spokesperson declined to comment when asked by Fox News if the matter has been referred to outside law enforcement.

Musk said in the email, which was seen by Reuters, that he had learned of this alleged behaviour at the weekend.

Musk said that the saboteur admitted to making changes to the "Tesla Manufacturing Operating System" and sharking sensitive data with a third party, but that the extent of his actions are not clear and an investigation continues. But according to CEO Elon Musk, some of its problems were the result of internal sabotage by an employee, who may not have been working alone.

In a separate email to staff, Mr Musk said there had been a small fire at a Tesla factory on Sunday.

Last week, Mr Musk said 9% of Tesla's workforce would be cut as part of a restructuring of the carmaker, which has not made an annual profit since it was created almost 15 years ago. It's racing to meet a target to build 5,000 Model 3s a week by the end of this month, a goal Musk told shareholders on June 5 that the company was "quite likely" to achieve. In light of these actions, not promoting him was definitely the right move.

As you know, there are a long list of organizations that want Tesla to die.

"As you know, there are a long list of organisations that want Tesla to die", Musk wrote, saying they included Wall Street short-sellers, oil and gas companies, and auto company rivals - but he named none. Then there are the oil & gas companies, the wealthiest industry in the world - they don't love the idea of Tesla advancing the progress of solar power & electric cars. The CEO also questions if "the multitude of big gas/diesel auto company competitors" were involved. He claims that while these companies cheat about emissions, maybe they can cheat in other ways.

Please be extremely vigilant, particularly over the next few weeks as we ramp up the production rate to 5k/week. "This is when outside forces have the strongest motivation to stop us", he warned. Employees can report such activities under their name, which will be kept confidential, or anonymously.
