It said this occurred largely through a series of tweets by Musk on August 7, including when he said he might take Tesla private and that there was "funding secured".

Tesla borrowed at hefty interest rates previous year, the person said, an additional cost burden for a company that had only $2.2 billion in cash flow at the end of June. Musk is Tesla's largest shareholder, with a 20% stake in the company. Others, however, stayed silent as they have yet to see more detailed financial evidence from Musk. The Tesla board of directors is now planning to meet next week to formalize the process and further consider the idea.

November 1, 2017 - Tesla pushes back its target to build 5,000 Model 3s per week to the first quarter of 2018 from an original target of December due to "production bottlenecks". However, Isaacs lost money on his deal.

As the result of his messages, Tesla share prices shot up 11 percent to nearly $380, causing short sellers to claim he had manipulated share prices and misled the market.
