Musk Once Again Pushes Tesla to the Brink

It’s all hands on deck at Tesla as the electric car-maker is scrambling to meet its delivery numbers. Producing the Model 3 (the company’s more affordable, “mass-produced” car) has put the company through, as Elon Musk has said, “Production Hell,” and they are now in “Logistics Hell.” What does this mean? Essentially, Tesla couldn’t make enough Model 3s, so the company was stretched to the breaking point. Now, the issue appears to be whether they can deliver the cars they make. Tesla is now asking for volunteers to help deliver…

Elon Musk’s Days as Tesla CEO Could Be Numbered: JPMorgan Analyst

Elon Musk is the tech billionaire that many people from Wall Street to Hollywood (e.g., Johnny Depp) love to hate.

Tesla Shares Drop after Mediocre Model Y Reveal

Tesla’s Model Y reveal, led to a mostly unimpressed audience and unenthused investors. Does the largely hype-less response show a market well-addressed or indicate declining interest? A definite sign in shareholder interest is the TSLA share price decline following the announcement. Tesla expects to see a rise in demand for the Model Y of at least 50% over the model 3—or at least, Musk expects the spike in demand. But what makes him so sure it will come? One thing which may clue him in: Tesla’s E-SUV, the model X,…

Are Teslas Death Traps? Failing Brakes and Violent Fires Spark Fears

Telsa faces another barrage of scrutiny over its safety. Tesla and media outrage go hand in hand these days.

Apple ‘Project Titan’ Could Mean an Electric Van, Not a Multi-Billion Acquisition of Tesla
