As Tesla explores options for going private, one of the issues they'll need to figure out is how to treat retail investors. As pointed out upthread, it's complicated to allow retail investors to remain in a private company - not impossible, but complicated. Of course, the simplest (not necessarily the best, but the simplest) way to deal with retail investors is to buy them out entirely.

I wonder if Tesla's proposal to go private involved buying out all of the retail investors at something close to the $420 per share mentioned in Musk's tweets, would retail investors support that? Would anyone on this board support the go-private proposal if it meant having to cash out your TSLA holdings at the tender price?
