Tesla Misconceptions

So in an article on the FP today...

Elon Musk is stated as “Telsa founder”.

Elon did not found Tesla.

He was an early investor (led Series A round of VC funding) and chairman of the board.


Not the founder. That was Martin Eberhard and Marc Tarpenning.

Can everyone stop pretending that Musk started Tesla!? He’s done a lot, but let’s not take away from the original real founders.

End rant.

(And I still can’t login to any other Kinja except Oppo so is someone willing to fight this battle for me on Jalopnik?)
