Elon Musk is making it pretty clear lately that autonomous driving is pretty much the only thing that can save Tesla, so he's doing what Elon does and making wild predictions about what he and his car company will be able to achieve in an absurdly short amount of time.

But while many of us have grown inured to Elon's giddy bullshit, one person is making it hilariously clear that he would prefer that everyone's favorite Bond villain come-to-life cut it out immediately. And that person is Whitney Tilson.

Like the Obi-Wan Kenobi of hedge funders, Whitney has emerged from his self-exile hidden cave in the desert and he's ready to get in some fights. According to ValueWalk, Tilson has seen Tesla's latest robotaxi video, and he's calling whatever the WASP equivalent of "BULLSHIT" is on Elon:

The point is that Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) is a zillion miles from Musk’s promise of Level 5 by the end of this year and a fleet of a million robotaxis by the end of next year.

You want to do a bet for charity that Tesla doesn’t come within a year of either of those promises (on that back of which, he raised over $2 billion)?

I’ll extend this bet to anyone – up to $10,000.

This should be fun. Welcome back to the wars, WT.
