I am curious what you all think about this topic. As we all know both SpaceX and Tesla are primarily driven by Elon and his desire to change the world. He has stated numerous times that he didn't want to take on the role of CEO. So that question is, how long do you think he will remain to be so?
I am a fan of both companies, and I tend to believe he will not leave Tesla until it is completely successful and self-sustainable, and will push as hard as possible to get there. So I am thinking not until Bluestar is a resounding success and public consciousnesses accepts electric as the immediate future.
That said I personally believe it is almost inevitable he will step down as CEO of Tesla if SpaceX really starts to reach their objectives and keep growing.
