Elon Musk's mother, Maye Musk took to Twitter to share a photo of a 23 or 24-year-old Elon working on the broken window of a 1978 BMW back in 1995. Musk said that he was repairing the window because thieves had broken in and stolen the radio, which was worth maybe $20 (roughly Rs. 1,400).
"Could not afford to pay for repairs, so I fixed almost everything on that car from parts in the junkyard. Ironically, that's me replacing broken side window glass. The circle is complete lol," Musk replied on Wednesday.
"Yeah, 1978 320i that I bought in 1993 for $1400 (roughly Rs. 1 lakh). I hotrodded it by jamming in a 5 speed transmission from a later model I found in a Philly junkyard when the 4 speed transmission failed," he added.
Starting at $39,900, "Cybertruck" is inspired by "Lotus Esprit S1" from the Bond film "The Spy Who Loved Me".
The truck will come in three versions with 250 miles, 300 miles and 500 miles of range, respectively.
