Tesla sabotage scandal taking new turn


The story of the Tesla saboteur is taking crazier turns. After Tesla sued Martin Tripp, he now claims to be a whistle-blower and indeed some recent scathing media reports about Tesla may be traced back to him.

In the latest series of emails though he sounds pretty worked up, threatening Musk (“you’ll get what’s coming”) while portraying himself as a saviour of investors and EV drivers, if not the world.

The escalation follows a recent announcement by Elon Musk. He informed his employees that there was a saboteur among their ranks who had made code changes to Tesla’s production system under a false username and passed on large amounts of sensitive data to third parties.

This man has been identified as Martin Tripp and Tesla has since filed a lawsuit. Tripp was also accused of having planned an attack on the Gigafactory but the Sheriff could not find any evidence of this.

Currently the “Tesla saboteur” is on a media tour trying to sell his part of the story to news outlets.
