However, at the last moment he changed his mind, and in turn the SEC filled a lawsuit claiming that "Musk had not even discussed, much less confirmed, key deal terms, including price, with any potential funding source".

"Ignore all distractions. One more hardcore weekend and we will all be victorious", Musk wrote in the first email sent Friday Sept. 28.
