Not An April Fool's Joke Anymore. Tesla Files Patent For 'Teslaquila'

Consumer Reports found that Cadillac's Super Cruise system did the best job with high-tech capabilities while also ensuring the driver is paying attention Wanted at Tesla: A manager who can handle Elon Musk

James Murdoch is the favourite to take over the chairmanship of volatile electric-carmaker Tesla from its embattled founder, Elon Musk, according to reports.

Mr Musk was forced from his post as part of a settlement with the US Securities and Exchange Commission over alleged securities fraud, where he claimed he had "funding secured" for a takeover of the electric auto maker.

FT additionally reported, citing people familiar with the discussions, that Murdoch "had signaled he wants the job".

James Murdoch could become the next head of Tesla's board of directors.

The younger Murdoch and Elon are reportedly friends, with the former having joined Tesla's board past year as one of a pair of new independent directors.

He resigned from the board of Sky this week, following Comcast's successful bid for the European satellite broadcaster. However, Gracias may not be sufficiently independent as he is invested in other companies linked with Musk, including SpaceX.

"I would still have reservations about the time he would be able to allot to this", Keatinge said. One of the FT's sources said external candidates were still being considered. Murdoch is said to be interested in taking the job, according to the report.

Following the sale of the bulk of 21st Century Fox's assets to Walt Disney, James Murdoch's younger brother Lachlan Murdoch is expected to succeed him as CEO.

Tesla faces a crucial moment as it struggles to produce its Model 3 sedan in large volume and deliver it quickly to customers amid an ongoing cash crunch that has concerned some analysts.

Chester Spatt, finance professor at Carnegie Mellon University and former SEC economist, said the shareholder vote requirement shows the SEC is protecting investors. Musk initially refused to settle, leading the SEC to double its fine from $10 to $20 million and increase the length of time Musk is barred from serving as Chairman from two to three years. That risked jeopardizing the hard-fought deal, which also requires Tesla to add two new independent directors.

Tesla shares plunged the following trading day and closed down 5.1 percent on April 2.
