Tesla Inside Out — Tesla History From 7-Year Insider

November 9th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

I recently met a gentleman named David Havasi while charging our Tesla Model 3 at a ChargePoint station at a Whole Foods I frequently visit. He recognized me from CleanTechnica and I quickly learned he worked at Tesla for 7 years, until just recently. We got talking, talking, talking, and talking. I wasn't sure if he'd be camera shy to repeat some of what he told me (or more) on camera, but it turned out he very much wasn't shy — he had actually worked on Broadway before working at Tesla!

Tesla’s One Core Advantage

October 25th, 2020 | by Zachary Shahan

"If it ain't broke, don't fix it." That's a maxim that I imagine could get you fired from Tesla. Tesla is obsessively focused on "fixing" what is working fine but not working as well as it could be. Tesla is obsessively trying to take products and systems apart, whittle them down to their core
