Company spokeswoman Gina Antonini declined to comment on the email. "The full extent of his actions are not yet clear, but what he has admitted to so far is pretty bad", Musk wrote. His stated motivation is that he wanted a promotion that he did not receive.

"Could just be a random event, but as Andy Grove said, 'Only the paranoid survive, '" Musk wrote Monday, referring to the late chairman and CEO of Intel Corp.

The leaked email, sent to Tesla's roughly 40,000 staff, said the matter was being was being investigated.

Musk points to Wall Street short-sellers and oil and gas companies all having an interest in seeing Tesla die.

Musk sent a separate email addressed to everyone at his company yesterday.

In a Monday email, Musk invoked a late tech titan in urging workers to keep an eye out for any amusing business after a fire briefly halted auto output.

It was quickly extinguished and did not cause any injuries or significant damage, he added. The company did not specify the location of the fire, which Reuters was unable to independently confirm. "Please be on the alert for anything that's not in the best interests of our company". Last week, Musk announced that he was reorganizing the company and shrinking Tesla's workforce by 9 percent in a bid for profitability. In a "strange incident that was hard to explain", Musk wrote that a small fire on a manufacturing line had stopped production for several hours.

Tesla is now ramping up production on the new Model 3, aiming to hit a manufacturing rate of 5,000 per week, which Musk described as the time that "outside forces have the strongest motivation to stop [them]", telling employees to be "extremely vigilant".
