As a Tesla certified body shop on Long Island, we at Keri Coach know the history of our cars—as well as the background of those who make them (at least the most interesting ones).
Meet Elon Musk
Did you know that not too long ago, Elon Musk, the genius technology entrepreneur, investor, and engineer, not to mention CEO and Product Architect of Tesla, Inc. (formerly Tesla Motors), used to sleep on a beanbag in his office in Palo Alto and showered at the YMCA! But at 27 years of age, he became a dotcom millionaire. Yet now, as of November 2021, Musk is likely the richest person in the world, with an estimated net worth of over US$300 billion.
His success and challenges—PayPal, Space X, SolarCity, and Tesla, to name just a few—as well as his fascination with Mars, have been documented in much detail over the past few decades.
