In a recent series of tweets, Tesla CEO Elon Musk claimed that future Tesla vehicles will have the ability to fly.

Musk was seen eating at Qimen Shuanrou in the capital's Guijie area with singer Grimes, a former girlfriend, in videos that appeared on social media on Thursday. Helping thaw frosty relations between the US and China, or getting the company's planned $5 billion plant outside Shanghai up and running by the end of the year?

"I love China and want to come here more often", Musk said during the meeting, the Hong Kong-based newspaper reported.

Li replied: 'If this is what you truly have in mind, we can issue you a "Chinese green card"'.
