Elon Musk revealed he wanted to sell tesla to apple and Tim cook was not interested

In recent history, several episodes have occurred around the work of electric car research and development that have caught the attention of those who are looking forward to the steps of this industry.

Recently, following the strong appearance of rumours that an Electric Car created by Appleiseventually coming, Elon Musk took advantage of the instance to declassify an episode involving his vehicle company and apple company a few years ago.

It was 2017 when Musk, following the launch of Tesla's Model 3,  decided to focus most of his company's resources on the production of this vehicle, presented as its flagship product at the time.

This risky movement brought with it considerable economic destabilization for the company, even dragging it into critical figures, according to the later commented by Musk himself.

To save his company, at a truly critical time of that year, Elon Musk asked Tim Cook, Apple's CEO, for a meeting to offer Tesla for sale at one-tenth of its current value. The company's top management position founded by Jobs and Wozniak simply refused the meeting, in a sign of disinterest in the proposal, according to Musk commenting on his Twitter account, about the new news of Apple's car.

On his own, Elon Musk managed to save his company and reaffirm his future with the subsequent launch of the Tesla Model and SUV  and Cybertruck.

Elon Musk versus Apple

In addition to declassifying this anecdote, with some disdain for Apple, Elon Musk has had other frictions with this company.

For example, in 2015, the person after Tesla noted in an interview that engineers who do not qualify for their company's standards of demand in recruitment and those who are fired end up working for Apple. Even, in an even more ironic tone, he noted that "Apple is a Tesla cemetery."

Back then, the rumour that Cupertino's company was working on an electric vehicle had been driving for a few years, but with less record and no strength, it has taken in the last time.

Turning to recent events, in the same comment thread on Apple's news on Elon Musk's Twitter account, he also alluded to the iron phosphate batteries that have so caught the eye of this project, have been present for some time in Tesla's vehicles in China.

When Apple's proposal for the field of electric vehicles is officially known, we will know whether these two companies will actually be direct competitors or whether, despite belonging to the same area, they end up targeting entirely different markets and customers.
