Tesla is a successful business at the moment, but it hasn’t always been than way and now it would appear that Elon Musk almost sold Tesla to Google back in 2013.
According to a report by Bloomberg, Elon Musk almost sold Tesla to Google in 2013 when the company was in difficulty, although the Tesla CEO managed to turn things around.
Earlier in 2013 the company was struggling to turn preorders of its vehicles into actual sales. As Musk put his staff on crisis footing to save Tesla, he also began negotiating a deal to sell the company to Google through his friend Larry Page, the search giant’s co-founder and chief executive officer, according to two people with direct knowledge of the deal.
