The State of Tesla and a Winter Layoff

I automatically assumed that Giga 3 will be profitable. Due to margins being surgically removed by Elon, maybe it won't be. Regardless, it's not likely that a full production quarter will ensue until Q2 2020. After a judge ruled that Elon broke... —  read more

Let's Go Deliver

An email from Elon: 6/25/2019, 8:11 A.M. PDT As you may have noticed, there is a lot of speculation regarding our vehicle deliveries this quarter. The reality is that we are on track to set an all-time record, but it will be very close. However, if... —  read more
