Musk said Tuesday that it would be possible to create a functioning version of the vehicle though it would be difficult to do so. "Maybe we'll make one a show car at some point, that would be fun," he said. "I think the market for this would be small — small, but enthusiastic," he added.

"I thought that was like the coolest thing I have seen in a movie," Musk said, adding that he also owns this car. He reportedly bought the Lotus for around $997,000 at an auction in London in 2013.

"It was amazing as a little kid in South Africa to watch James Bond in 'The Spy Who Loved Me' drive his Lotus Esprit off a pier, press a button and have it transform into a submarine underwater," he said in a statement in 2013.

"I was disappointed to learn that it can't actually transform. What I'm going to do is upgrade it with a Tesla electric powertrain and try to make it transform for real."

A submarine car isn't totally out of the question for Tesla, Elon Musk says.

In response to a question about whether the company would ever look to develop an aquatic car during the company's annual shareholder's meeting on Tuesday, Musk chuckled and said: "Funny you should mention that...we do have a design for a submarine car like the one from 'The Spy Who Loved Me.'"

Musk was referring to the 1976 Lotus Esprit, which turned into an amphibious car and was driven on land and underwater in the 1977 James Bond film.

Elon Musk told a group of shareholders on Tuesday that Tesla has the design for a
submarine car that is similar to the Lotus Esprit featured in James Bond film "The Spy Who Loved Me."

While it would be difficult to create an aquatic car, it's technically possible, Musk said.

Musk owns the 1976 Lotus Esprit which was featured in the 1977 movie, which starred Roger Moore.

Kevin Durant may never be the player he was after rupturing his Achilles and it was "a disaster" to allow him to play just 32 days after suffering a calf injury, according to a specialist.

Warriors star Durant confirmed on Instagram on Wednesday he had undergone successful surgery, having torn his Achilles in Game 5 of the NBA Finals against the Raptors earlier this week.

Elsewhere the production was put into 'total lockdown' and a crew member was injured after the incident at Pinewood Studios in Iver Heath, Buckinghamshire.

The explosion took part of the roof off and five wall panels of the huge complex and it was said to be 'utter chaos' in the moments after the blast.

It is unclear if filming for the as yet untitled movie is being suspended after the incident, and if so, for how long.

The official Twitter account for the 007 franchise confirmed the blasts, with a post that said: 'During the filming of a controlled explosion on the set of Bond 25 today at Pinewood Studios, damage was caused to the exterior of the 007 Stage.

'There were no injuries on set, however one crew member outside the stage has sustained a minor injury.'

He has reportedly received treatment from the same surgeon who treated Tottenham Hotspur and England star Harry Kane in New York City, but is thought to be 'furious' that he injured himself after months of gruelling preparation for the role.

Craig's operation will be followed by two weeks of rehabilitation, causing further delays to filming the movie, which is set for a 3 April cinematic release.

The official Twitter account for Bond 25 released a statement concerning Craig's injuries, posting: 'Daniel Craig will be undergoing minor ankle surgery resulting from an injury sustained during filming in Jamaica.

'Production will continue whilst Craig is rehabilitating for two weeks post-surgery. The film remains on track for the same release date in April 2020'.

The curse of Bond 25: String of bad luck that has hit filming
The recent Pinewood Studios blast is the latest mishap in a string of bad luck for the 25th film chronicling 007's adventures.

The first blow came when director Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire) quit in August last year.

He argued with Daniel Craig over creative differences over casting for the lead villain.

Since then writing trouble has abounded as the screenplay is constantly re-written by director Cary Joji Fukunaga, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Craig himself.

In April, producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson said at the film's launch that the blockbuster still doesn't have title.

And with less than a year until the release date, its leading man required surgery last month on his ankle after the star slipped while running.

The 51-year-old was filming on location in Jamaica at the time.

“You’ve got to be aware of them at all times,” Raptors guard Kyle Lowry said. “It ain’t just down the stretch. It’s all game.”

None of this would be possible if the Warriors weren’t experts at creating screens and using ball movement to find them. Green and Iguodala are solid at this, whipping the ball around the perimeter until it finds the designated shooter, often wide open.

“You got to guard them, got to find them in transition,” Raptors coach Nick Nurse said. “We’ve got to come up with a solution for that. They’re excellent at pushing off to create space. Their screens are long and wide. So you’ve got to work doubly, triply hard sometimes. There’s a lot of stuff going on and we need to do better.”

Oracle Arena will be alive for another day before it dies. The crowd will be a mixture of nostalgic and desperate and sympathetic toward Durant. And this atmosphere will play in the favor of a team that hasn’t been able to solve the Raptors at home.

Eventually, though, the ball is tossed and atmosphere can’t decide a game, certainly not a championship. That comes down to Kawhi Leonard and Toronto’s deep shooting and its defense and its ability to stay composed in the moment of truth.

For the Warriors? Easy. Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, the Splash Brothers, better make it rain. If not, this dynasty is a wash.

379
This whittles down to a pair of shooters who’ll be constantly run off screens and thrown the ball and asked to be volume shooters and efficient shooters. And clutch shooters, if the game comes down to that.

And just because Curry and Thompson have done all of the above for much of their career, there’s no guarantee they’ll do that over the next game, or two.

“I think they rely on their experience,” Livingston said. “They’ve been doing it for a while. There’s no pressure being down, what, six points, two minutes left? At that point they’ve got 25, 30 points, so they take the shot. You trust them. They know they’re getting the ball. That’s just how we play, how they play.”

It has become instinctive at this point for Curry and Thompson, given their knowledge of each other, their high level of comfortability and the trust they share.

“We just kind of go out there and play,” said Thompson. “We're very in tune with each other being that we've played with each other for years. So when we hit the open man -- Steph doesn't stop moving. Same for me. So it just comes down to having the chemistry we do with the team and just playing that ball movement type of basketball. I know Steph has been doing it for 10 years with this organization, and me eight. So we know what it's like to take those, and we can live with the make or miss. It's just what it comes down to.”

Curry and Thompson shot 27 threes in Game 5, which was a problem for Toronto. That means a majority of those shots came in rhythm and some uncontested; otherwise, there wouldn’t be as many attempts.


380
Curry and Thompson have been teammates eight seasons and enjoy prominent mention among the best backcourts ever. Their chemistry together is perhaps unmatched. Their shooting range is historic. Their shared history — 11 combined All-Star teams and three titles — is rich. And the task facing them is monstrous.

Toronto is a solid defensive team, especially around the perimeter, where Curry and Thompson thrive. The Raptors will surely shadow each player around the floor and willingly leave certain reluctant shooters, such as Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala, wide open as if encouraging them to shoot. There’s a reason for this strategy: Green and Iguodala have been awful from the outside in this series (a combined 9-of-35 from deep, with a majority of those shots uncontested) and haven’t done anything to deserve Toronto’s respect.

So, the Raptors will give them none, until and unless they prove worthy of it.

When Green and Iguodala shoot, the result is usually a miss, or a forced pass to another teammate, or a rash decision to attack the basket for a layup that is either successful or becomes an offensive foul or turnover. Essentially, there’s more bad than good.

Elsewhere: DeMarcus Cousins has had three decent quarters in the entire series and otherwise is overcome by poor decisions, fouls and turnovers. Livingston isn’t a deep threat, and so he can’t stretch the floor. Kevon Looney is playing through pain. Quinn Cook goes hot and cold. And no one else is on the floor long enough to help.
