Leaving the issues aside, popular Youtuber and avid Tesla fan Marques Brownlee released an in-depth interview with Musk discussing science, technology and other important points that have nothing to do with the painful news circulating since last week. "If you have anyone who can do a better job, please let me know", Musk told the Times, adding: "They can have the job".
Currently, the price for Tesla Model 3 starts from $35,000 and Model S from $75,000.
But the Times did more digging, reporting there were also board members concerned - with his erratic behavior and frequent use of Ambien, sometimes leading to late-night tweets that make him AND his company look bad.
"I thought the worst of it was over", he told The New York Times. People familiar with board members claim that the board is also aware that Musk has previously used recreational drugs.
If delisted, Tesla could operate without requirements for financial reports and other pressures of a publicly traded firm. The paper described a sleep-deprived CEO working 120 hours per week who hasn't taken a substantial vacation since 2001.
But he said in the interview that he plans to remain in his role as Tesla's CEO and COO, though Tesla's board is reportedly searching for a number two executive to lighten his load.
There are multiple reports that the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is investigating the disclosure.

Chelsea are not title contenders yet, claims Sarri
And Kovacic is set to get that at Chelsea with Sarri planning to partner him with N'Golo Kante and Jorginho in a midfield three. I think he's not ready now for 90 minutes, but maybe, tomorrow, for the first 30 or the last 30 minutes he could be used.
Tom Brady, New England Patriots quarterback, plays well vs. Philadelphia Eagles
Philadelphia's Shelton Gibson had five catches for 90 yards and a 4-yard TD reception in the second quarter that made it 17-7. Patriots: First-round draft choice Isaiah Wynn was taken away from the medical tent on a cart with a left ankle injury.
At the time, the SEC subpoenaed a parts supplier working with the electric auto maker, one of the sources said.
The founder of the electric vehicle manufacturer, who oversees other ambitious companies like SpaceX and The Boring Company, spoke of the deterioration in his physical health and the overwork which almost caused him to miss his brother's wedding.
While he says he has no plans to stop tweeting, he acknowledged that he's promised not to tweet about going private without approval from the board in the future.
'This has really come at the expense of seeing my kids.
In a recent interview with the New York Times, Musk was frequently "choked up" when he told reporters about how his personal life has suffered because of his (admittedly ambitious) work. In May he rebuked stock analysts for asking "boring, bonehead" questions, while in July he accused a British caver involved in the rescue of a Thai youth soccer team from a flooded cave of being a pedophile. They can have the job.
Musk tweeted that he had "funding secured" to take Tesla private and avoid the quarterly earnings pressures from Wall Street.
The brokerage said the carmaker's premium Model 3 sedan will also not produce better profit margins than a conventional BMW BMWG.DE . Musk said he flew directly from the Tesla Gigafactory and arrived just two hours before the ceremony, after the ceremony he returned immediately to work. Is there someone who can do the job better? "They can have the reins right now", he said.
Musk, 47, said that he is suffering the effects of dealing with production deadlines for his Tesla auto and the fallout from a federal investigation.
