Musk said that he offered the head of Apple to buy out Tesla for $ 60 billion, but the deal did not take place.
On December 22, Elon Musk announced on Twitter that he had sent Apple CEO Tim cook a proposal for a meeting where they could discuss financial assistance for Tesla. The businessman said that in a critical situation, he considered selling the company for “one-tenth of the current market value”, but cook “refused to meet”.
Musk’s message came after the publication of Apple’s statement about its intention to present in 2024 its first car, created as part of the Project Titan project, launched by the company ten years ago. It is worth noting that in the middle of last month, for the first time in history, the market capitalization of Tesla exceeded $ 500 billion, while the market value of Apple in August for the first time exceeded the $ 2 trillion mark.
