Elon Musk Claims He Would Have Sold Tesla To Apple But Tim Cook Ghosted Him

Tesla CEO Elon Musk says he once considered selling the electric carmaker to Apple, but the iPhone maker’s CEO blew off the meeting. In a tweet, Musk says he reached out to Apple’s Tim Cook “to discuss the possibility of Apple acquiring Tesla (for one-tenth of our current value). He refused to take the meeting.” As recently as 2018, Tesla was struggling to meet its vehicle production goals and turn a profit. Tesla’s market value is currently $616-billion-dollars.
