Introducing Musk Reads+
I’m really excited that I can finally share what we’ve been working on in secret.
To all Musk Readers,
Musk Reads+ is a new premium service that offers something extra for the subscribers who have enjoyed our free newsletter for the past four years.
I’ve been doing exclusive interviews, longform analysis, and amassing a calendar of future events that nobody else has, all to make Musk Reads+ as essential to you as possible. I’ve also done several reader surveys to learn how Musk Reads+ can be the most valuable to you. (Thanks for participating!)
It all amounts to a premium package of regular insights that explains why Tesla deliveries are rising, what it’s really like to photograph a rocket launch, or what Hyperloop developers think about the future.
Musk Reads+ is for people who enjoy learning about electric cars, clean energy and space exploration, but want to go beyond the typical headlines.
We have had a stunning first year of programming, packed with original interviews and content. Here are the sort of interviews we’ve hosted:
Tony Cho, owner of Florida’s largest Tesla Solar Roof.
Peter Beck, CEO of space exploration firm Rocket Lab.
Sandy Munro, Munro & Associates chief executive who has shot to fame with his legendary Tesla teardowns.
Christian Maender, director of in-space manufacturing and research for Axiom Space.
Nicholas Underwood, a Starlink beta tester
To be clear, we will continue to offer a free tier of membership. Free tier subscribers will continue to receive a weekly summary of the Tesla and SpaceX news you’ve been enjoying so far. Our premium tier is entirely optional for those of you that want to experience the full scope of exciting content we have in store.
Premium Musk Reads+ subscribers will enjoy:
Two additional newsletters per week, enabling fans to go deeper into the week’s news with original interviews and reporting, longform analysis, previews and recaps of major events, including earnings calls and more.
Future Tesla quarterly earnings transcripts delivered straight to your inbox complete with our expert analysis and annotation.
Community-focused extras like access to our comment section, and the opportunity to be featured in our community mailroom, featured in every Friday Musk Reads+ newsletter.
Access to our premium subscriber archive, so you can easily read back over newsletters and interviews that you might have missed.

I’ve really enjoyed getting emails from all our subscribers with thought-provoking questions, people that want to know more about why and how. My big hope is that Musk Reads+ will appeal to those fantastically curious readers that have made the newsletter such a huge success.
We’ve seen Tesla unveil the Cybertruck, start shipping the Model Y, and begin fitting solar roofs to homes. The firm went from “production hell” to shipping its millionth car. On the SpaceX side, the Crew Dragon sent its first humans into space, the Starship has completed its first hop tests, and the Falcon Heavy has successfully sent Musk’s Tesla Roadster on a tour of the solar system.
Along the way, Musk Reads has been tracking these advancements.
We interviewed one of the first owners of a Tesla Solar Roof, gathering insights into how it could transform your energy usage.
We covered The Boring Company’s outlandish flamethrower handover, speaking with one of the winners of an exclusive competition.
We even interviewed astronaut Doug Hurley, ahead of his historic flight as one of the first two people to ever fly into space on a SpaceX rocket.
If Musk Reads classic is a digest of all things Elon, then Musk Reads+ is the unabridged, thoughtful, guide that I hope will help you understand not just Elon, but the broader future he envisions.
We wouldn't be able to continue Musk Reads without your incredible support. Stay tuned for more exciting things to come.
Can’t wait to see what comes next!
Looking forward to reading future issues
