Musk insisted he never discussed the possibility of a merger or the Apple CEO with Tim Cook.
According to an upcoming book, Apple CEO Tim Cook Called Elon Musk to talk about acquisitions Tesla. This merger discussion ended when Musk said he wanted to replace Cook as CEO Apple as part of the agreement.
Musk, however, denies this. The Tesla CEO said on Twitter, “Cook and I have never spoken or written to each other.” Musk said he wanted to meet with Tim Cook to discuss selling the electric car company to Apple during the darkest days of the Model 3 event, but Tim Cook declined to meet. According to Musk, Tesla’s value at that time was now only 6%.
Tesla Model 3 was launched in 2017. Prior to this, the model had experienced several months of production difficulties and other problems. The Model 3 was also to be assembled in a tent near its factory in California. Still, the Model 3 helped make Tesla the world’s most valuable car company last year.
Earlier this week, Tesla announced that second-quarter revenue rose from $6 billion year-over-year to $12 billion. As a result, this electric car company made a profit of $1.1 billion, an increase of over $104 million.
In the second quarter, Tesla sold more than 200,000 electric vehicles, an increase of 91,000 vehicles compared to the same period in 2020 – when the pandemic severely affected production and sales. Accumulated in the first half of the year, Tesla sold 385,000 cars.
In addition to selling cars, Tesla is making big profits by selling emissions limits to other automakers. Musk’s car company earned $354 million in the second quarter thanks to this activity.
