Tesla CEO Elon Musk officially unlocked the first tranche of a multi-step compensation package, spelling out a potential payday of almost $775 million for the controversial executive. This permits the CEO to purchase almost 1.7 million shares of Tesla at a pre-set price of $350.02 per share, a total cost of $595 million to be paid by Musk.

The compensation package for Musk, who founded Tesla and built it into the leading electric auto maker, is being challenged in court by a shareholder who accuses the board of having failed in its duties. Should the company's market cap skyrocket to $650 billion, around 3.8 times the value of Toyota, Musk could walk away with incentives worth around $50 billion.

Musk still has eight years left to clear 11 more valuation hurdles, mostly in $50 billion increments, which would fetch him roughly $5 billion each.
