Tesla Motors Gets a $40m Cash Recharge, Probably Won't DisappearSFresh off a pretty huge round of layoffs, their Detroit office closure and a flurry of rumors about their solvency, Tesla Motors has been promised $40m in financing. Considering the fact that Elon Musk, mildly successful space invader and the owner of the company, had admitted just a few weeks ago that the company only had about $9m in bank, this new investment probably means the difference between customers getting their cars on time and Tesla, well, dissolving. So, Tesla, you've got your money — can we have our sedan, please? [NYT]
