Only Elon Musk can get away with this kind of stuff!
Well, now is your chance! As Elon Musk has randomly slashed the price of one of his high-class models “just for fun.”

Now, we all know that Elon Musk is a very wealthy man.
Being the founder, CEO and Chief Engineering Designer of Tesla and SpaceX, he has an awful lot going for him.
And the company has unveiled some very impressive vehicles during Musk’s time as CEO.
But Tesla had a little bit of an accident last year.
Who doesn’t know about the infamous Cybertruck disaster?!
So confident in the shatterproof design, he asked Tesla design chief Franz von Holshausen to throw a ball at the Cybertrucks window.
The ball completely shattered the Cybertrucks supposedly shatterproof glass and it made Musk look like a bit of an idiot, to say the least.
After the fail during the presentation, Musk tweeted a video made earlier, when they had successfully practiced the stunt.
And Musk’s presentation seemed to have seriously damaged Tesla’s reputation.
People were mocking Elon directly.
As the founder and CEO of Tesla, Musk was getting a lot of criticism for the bizarre car design.
Frankly, this guy is so rich he can do whatever he very well wants to!
He is a seriously smart guy, and even if we don’t like the current Cyber truck design, we bet they’re the start of a new era in automobile design.
Shortly afterward, Tesla unveiled its highly anticipated Tesla Roadster sports car for the first time at the European Grand Basel motor show.
The Roadster, an all-electric 4-seater machine that Tesla claims has a top speed exceeding 250mph, was revealed last year and the firm displayed it in public for the first time at the Swiss event… although the white model on display appeared to be a design shell.
It is a very fast model…
Tesla said the launch version, first confirmed during the launch event for the new Tesla Semi lorry in California, will feature 10,000nm of torque (7376lb ft) from 3 motors.
It can hit 60mph in 1.9 seconds, half-a-second quicker than the current fastest-accelerating Tesla, the Model S P100D.
He said the successor to Tesla’s first production car, which went off sale 6 years ago, can accelerate from zero to 100mph in 4.2 seconds and complete a quarter-mile sprint in 8.9 seconds.
Who doesn’t love a fast car?
But at the end of the day, speed isn’t everything when it comes to a safe vehicle.
There’s nothing more important than driving a car that is safe and reliable, and Tesla pride themselves on their autopilot technology that is installed in all of their vehicles to prevent accidents.
Tesla is worth a lot of money.
It’s something you have to have a lot of if you’re wanting to become the proud owner of a Tesla.
As thanks to Elon Musk’s most recent act of strangeness, one of Tesla’s top models is now a lot cheaper.
This model is the go-to in Tesla terms and it usually retails for a price between $76,990 – $130,000.
Taking to Twitter, he wrote:
“The gauntlet has been thrown down! The prophecy will be fulfilled. Model S price changes to $69,420 tonight!”
The billionaire squeezed in a “420” joke… because of course he did!
Because we all know what the number 69 stands for… right?
Which is something we can’t really complain about!
