In March 2013, Tesla was in a very delicate situation: in fact, Tesla has one foot was on the verge of bankruptcy; its electric vehicles have not caused rough interest from buyers.

The news Agency reports that the exact details about this transactions no-one knows, however, noted that at that time the cost of the Tesla was about $ 6 billion. Bloomberg reports that Musk was asked from page guarantees that in case of realization of this transaction the work of Tesla will continue for at least eight subsequent years from the date of sale, or at least until, as will be presented the third generation of urban electric cars.
True or not, but as they say, the negotiations over the sale of Tesla has really gone very far. Paige "has even adopted all the main proposals and in words was ready for this deal." The lawyers for both companies have spent the last several weeks to discuss details of the sale, however, universal agreement is not reached.
