After taxpayers help planet-healing, SUV-driving Elon Musk build a few bad-weather-preventing cars, he rewards himself with a new $17 million mansion

Taxpayers footed the bill for a $465 million loan to troubled electric carmaker Tesla as part of President Barack Obama’s “green energy” stimulus. But Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk is now riding high with the purchase of his new $17 million mansion.

Mr. Musk’s 20,248-square-foot hilltop mansion boasts breathtaking views, a two-story library with rolling ladder, a home theater, and a five-car garage to house his taxpayer-subsidized, pricey Tesla vehicles...Last quarter, Tesla produced just 359 cars.

he proudly gave a tour of the place, which includes six bedrooms, nine bathrooms and many fireplaces (I lost count)...Outside, as you’d expect, a five-car garage held a Tesla Roadster (the Model S had yet to come out), a Porsche 911 and an Audi SUV.
