Tesla boss Elon Musk claims that some of Apple’s latest hires were fired by the electric car company
Elon Musk, billionaire technology entrepreneur and chief executive of Tesla, has dubbed Apple the ‘Tesla graveyard’, claiming that some of the iPhone giant’s latest hires were fired by the electric car company.
In an interview with German newspaper Handelsblatt, Mr Musk scoffed at the suggestion that Apple had hired some of Tesla’s most important engineers, stating: “If you don’t make it at Tesla, you go work at Apple. I’m not kidding.”
He also dismissed the notion that Apple could be a serious competitior in the automotive market, amid rumours that Apple is building an electric car, codenamed Project Titan, and has set a target shipping date for 2019.
