The contrast highlight the biggest difference between Tesla's immature business and car companies that are over a hundred years old. The contrast was telling: The same week that Tesla CEO Elon Musk attended a groundbreaking ceremo...

Elon Musk may be trying to cut a deal with China that could give it a huge advantage, according to a Tesla analyst (TSLA)
