Let’s face it. It’s unlikely that anyone of us will ever drive a Tesla in the near future, let alone tow a ginormous object with it; one that us civilians will never have access to.
In its latest publicity stunt, possibly to show how much torque a Model X has and its likely applications, it was used to tow a massive 128-tonne Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, capable of accommodating 280 passengers.

An impressive feat by the troubled electric car maker currently saddled by production line problems and mounting debts. Still, it doesn’t take the cake from when Elon Musk declared Tesla bankrupt; only for it to be an April Fool’s joke gone wrong.
Stocks fell sharply after Musk’s inappropriate and untimely “joke” and the company’s investors, needless to say, were not pleased. Could this be yet another story of an over achiever losing the plot? Or could Musk once again prove us all, wrong?
