Elon Musk thinks it's 'financially insane' to buy a car that isn't a Tesla — but Tesla wouldn't be able to make enough cars to meet that demand (TSLA)

Tesla CEO Elon Musk thinks that fully autonomous Tesla vehicles will lead consumers to conclude that it's "financially insane" to buy a vehicle from somebody else. But even if Musk were right, Tesla isn't remotely capable of satisfying even US automobile demand. The more Tesla struggles to be a major automaker, the more Musk is working to brand the company as a Silicon Valley tech firm. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

The real reason Tesla is showing off its self-driving tech (TSLA)

Tesla bears are insisting that the company is staging an event to showcase its self-driving technology because it wants to distract from weak Q1 earnings coming this week. But the markets have known Tesla earnings are likely to be weak for some time.

The biggest question for Tesla is whether the company can make steady profits on its cars (TSLA)

A Tesla "demand crisis" has developed on Wall Street. Analysts are worried that Tesla demand is fading — but they're mistaking demand for demand growth. Tesla's growth already has it in a commanding position in the US luxury market — the company completely dominates the highly profitable luxury EV space. In the short term, analysts reckoning with their overly bullish demand prediction could contribute to negative sentiment about Tesla's stock. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories...

Tesla and Trump both thrive on chaos — but Elon Musk's car company needs to chill out if it's going to succeed (TSLA)

President Trump and Tesla CEO Elon Musk have a much higher chaos tolerance than the average human. But as Tesla grows, chaos isn't helping to improve its chances to prosper. Trump is never going to change, but Musk has a chance this year to reset Tesla's paradigm. I've argued that there are no minds on planet Earth more different that Donald Trump's and Elon Musk's. However, Musk is a canny operator and always has been — and it's clear that he's learned a few things from the Tweeter In Chief....

Tesla is proof that the next 20 years in the tech industry won't be like the last 20 (TSLA)

Everyone is overlooking a very big wildcard about Lyft, Uber and all the other gig-economy IPOs (LYFT)

Lyft went public on Friday, kicking off a parade of high-profile IPOs expected this year, including Uber, Postmates, and perhaps even Airbnb.  However, there's still one thing we don't know: Are these gig-economy companies suited to weather a recession? They might be so ingrained in consumer habits that they'll be just fine. They might also face a supply-side crunch, as people flock to become Uber drivers or Airbnb hosts during economic hard times — which would drive prices down.  Or they coul...
