Elon Musk's electric dreams

His prized Model S is feeling the heat, but Tesla chief Elon Musk is not one to recoil from challenges... which he still expects will include electric aircraft and mass-market electric cars.

Serial entrepreneur Elon Musk has just endured the toughest week in what has been a whirlwind year, but the Tesla boss refuses to let that stop him from pondering a future that could involve everything from electric planes to hyperloops and driverless vehicles.

The past week has, however, further enlightened Musk as to the challenges of running a company with the kind of hype previously reserved only for Apple. It means any news – good, bad or indifferent – is greatly exaggerated.
