Tesla has turned out to be the best important and also (by some measures) the best worthwhile automaker within the globe, But a little while ago it just about toppled into bankruptcy.

CEO Elon Musk tweeted this week how the company was within four weeks of filing for bankruptcy when it was struggling to take its best selling car, the Model three sedan, to sell.

“Closest we got was about a month,” he said when requested via Twitter how near Tesla got to bankruptcy. “The Model three ramp was extreme stress and anxiety & ache for a rather long time – from mid 2017 to mid 2019. Production & strategies hell.”

Tesla was at a major bucks crunch as losses mounted which struggled to hit many production targets for the Model three. But Musk hadn’t earlier disclosed the company was in close proximity to filing for bankruptcy — though he did joke about a bankruptcy filing while in a separate tweet on April Fool’s Day in 2018.
