Tesla Motors Inc (TSLA) CEO Elon Musk’s Hyperloop Gets Crowd-Funding

Two of the nation’s top engineers have agreed to help manage the building of Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s Hyperloop.

When Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) CEO Elon Musk revealed the plans for his futuristic Hyperloop transportation system, he said he didn’t have time to build it himself. Of course it didn’t take much convincing to get him agree to at least build the first prototype. Now there’s a crowd-funding effort underway to get the actual thing built, and two of the world’s top engineers are backing it.
