Separately, Musk touted the company's overall progress on Friday.

Late on Thursday, Musk was filmed drinking whiskey, briefly smoking marijuana and wielding a Samurai sword during a 2-1/2-hour live Web show with comedian Joe Rogan that swiftly spread across social media. Guardado alleged that Musk and Tesla use a "vague" druge use policy to target and punish employees who are seen as a "threat". But in the interview with Rogan, which was streamed on YouTube, he appeared at ease.

Several Wall Street analysts renewed calls for the company to appoint another senior leader, either to replace Musk as chief executive or provide more support as the company strives to expand production and potentially raise more capital.

When discussing Musk's proclivity towards invention and innovation, the entrepreneur said that he first became aware that he was different around five or six years old.

"Yeah, I think I tried one once", he replied, laughing. He said he's found the substance hurt his productivity.

Shares in Tesla fell by as much as 9% on the same day the electric auto maker lost two executives and its boss was filmed smoking cannabis during an interview.

"It's very hard to keep a auto company alive", he said.

Manchester United legend Eric Cantona has thrown his hat in the ring for the position of manager should they ever need him. He is the spiritual child of Johan Cruyff - he played under Cruyff at Barcelona and learned everything from him.

Meanwhile, investors were digesting a video, associated with a podcast, in which Elon Musk appeared to smoke a marijuana-tobacco combination, which is legal in California but nevertheless came as Tesla directors have expressed concern about Musk's behavior. "I'd rather be optimistic and wrong than pessimistic and right".

Asked about the wisdom of smoking marijuana while he is under investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission for the take private tweet (which many observers suspected was a marijuana joke), Musk told the Guardian by email: "Guardian is the most insufferable newspaper on planet Earth". "Every now and again I get drawn in and it's not good, you can make some mistakes", he added.

Tesla representatives did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Hill on Guardado's claims.

Last month, Musk ignited controversy by announcing on Twitter that a deal to take Tesla private was all but certain, only to abandon the plan 17 days later.

Soon after, Musk changed his mind and said he decided the company would remain public. "Mostly because of paperwork". "Because they seem to put everything on the Internet, practically". This is all bad news if you work for one of Elon Musk's companies or care about him as a person. "The interesting thing about an electric plane is that you want to go as high as possible. And that's just what people know about", he said.

Elon Musk talked about artifical intelligence and colonising space during the long interview.
