Musk faced several tough questions from the assembled press, ranging from “Are you drunk?” to “What are you smoking?” to “Have you lost your mind?”
Musk said just hours after debuting the $35,000 Model 3 electric sedan. “Well, Tesla is making the flying car a reality. Life is too short not to build one.” “We realize most Americans don’t yet have their pilot’s license,” Musk said. “Why do you think we named our autonomous driving software Autopilot? From day one we’ve designed Autopilot to work with our all-electric, zero-emissions flying car. We will fly you.”

He should concentrate on manufacturing thousands Model 3 he had on order, but he didn't he wants to spend the money he doesn't have on flying c-r-a-p. I may not see my Model 3 for many years, probably after 2020.
When asked how the cars will be able to take off and land at crowded Supercharger stations, Musk was quick to point to the reusable rocket technology his company SpaceX developed for its Falcon 9 rocket. “It’s basically the same c-r-a-p,” Musk said. Musk faced several tough questions from the assembled press, ranging from “Are you drunk?” to “What are you smoking?” to “Have you lost your mind?” “When something is important enough,” he replied, “you do it even if the odds are not in your favor.” He then added, “And let’s not forget that the week I launched my all-electric faster-than-a-Ferrari $100K super sedan, I docked my rocket ship with the International Space Station. As my bae T-Swift says, ‘Haters gonna hate, hate, hate.’”
