(Reuters) - Tesla Inc Chief Executive Elon Musk was filmed smoking marijuana, drinking whiskey and wielding a sword just hours before the automaker said its accounting chief would leave after a one-month stint, the latest in a string of unusual behavior and executive departures that have stunned investors. Shares of the electric carmaker tumbled as much as 10 percent on Friday, with investors on edge after a tumultuous August during which Musk proposed and then abruptly pulled the plug on a go-private deal. Chief Accounting Officer Dave Morton resigned because of discomfort with the attention on the company and pace of work during that time, Tesla said in a filing on Friday. Morton, whose departure comes after the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission opened an inquiry into Musk’s aborted plan, joins a list of executives who have left Tesla recently.

It took a little over 40 hours to design and install, but even the … [Read more...] about This Slantnose 1969 Porsche Custom Is A God Arrow Of Righteous Speed
Global Gateway View All autos Published 21st June 2018 View gallery 11 Driving with the Arabian Gazelles, Dubai's all-female supercar club Written by By Thomas Page, CNN Not that long ago, Hanan Mazouzi Sobati faced flagrant sexism at track days in Dubai. An ardent petrolhead, Sobati would go to drive her sports car fast -- really fast -- but many of the overwhelmingly male drivers couldn't see past her gender. "They always thought I was someone else, accompanying someone. I was just there to support him, or to sit in the passenger seat," she recalls. "(It's) as if they didn't see me." Devel Sixteen: '300mph' hypercar prototype unveiled Fellow enthusiast Jalyn Jarvi echoes the sentiment. "You pull up and they expect you to be somebody's girlfriend or wife," she adds. "Everybody's staring at you and it's a little bit uncomfortable." "It started hitting me that not only they don't expect you to be there, you're not really welcome," says Sobati.
