    Maybe burn out. Musk pushes people to their max and maybe these two guys can not handle the next big push for Model 3.

    I don't know. If you work in human resources, you see various changes all the time. Things are always going on. As a company grows, new skill sets are needed. Company goals and objectives change and the people previously employed look for the next steps in their careers. You'd have to be inside to know the complete stories involved in each individual case at Tesla, but it doesn't mean disaster or great upheaval because some people leave at about the same time. As in most forms of poker, you don't typically play the game by showing all your cards. A lack of confidentiality often doesn't improve business, for either the employer or for those moving on. Silence is golden.

    For example, Elon did not start his career at Tesla, and someday, he'll leave it by his own acknowledgement, after his tackling the things he set out to do and his finding something else better and more appropriate to do with his time.

    Lee Iacocca had successfully fathered the Mustang and participated in other automotive projects at Ford. He did not see eye to eye with Ford management afterward in his moving forward, and so he went on to Chrysler, where he felt he could help with their existing corporate situation. That did not mean that Ford was in dire trouble, or that Lee was lousy at Ford, or that Chrysler would soon suffer under Lee's leadership. Times change. People move on.

    Steve Jobs founded Apple, was fired, came back, and finally died. Apple goes on.

    There will always be disagreements in business. You wouldn't get a full perspective on issues from your teams if everyone on them all held the same viewpoints about everything at all junctures. In fact, when everyone continually says yes, you're probably truly headed for some deep trouble.

    Greg Reichow had had no prior automotive experience, and he's staying in the interim to allow Tesla time to secure a replacement. He might not be the best candidate as things enter a phase in which you may need to ramp up production to 100 jobs an hour, multiple shifts, and heavy overtime. Life goes on. He's not taking all the powertrains with him.
