Tesla could go bankrupt and Elon Musk could run afoul of the SEC and it wouldn't matter — because owners love the cars (TSLA)

Another week, another Elon Musk Tesla controversy. This one is sort of a tempest in a teapot, and it comes at a time when the news around Tesla has been fairly quiet. Musk's settlement with the Secur...

Tesla Model X owner caught sleeping on the highway with Autopilot turned on

A wild, if not disturbing, video that originally surfaced on Jalopnik shows a Tesla Model X owner taking a full-on snooze while his car drives down the highway. Tesla's Autopilot feature is of course activated but it's clearly not designed to let people fall asleep at the wheel. If anything, the Tesla driver in the video is so relaxed that he's not even at the wheel; he's full-on reclining. The Model X in question was reportedly on a highway headed to Las Vegas and thankfully di...

Tesla's finances have been an area of concern for the automaker throughout its 15-year history, and those concerns may be reaching an inflection point. In the next five months, two convertible bonds worth a combined $1.15 billion will come due. If Tesla becomes profitable and cash flow positive, the bonds shouldn't be a major issue. But if Tesla's financial condition hasn't improved and doesn't in the near future, the bonds could pose another challenge to a company that is already dealing with...

Prius, B*tch.

We all know the silent killer of the modern city. We’ve seen them rolling around our streets, emboldening the hipster class, and multiplying faster than Starbucks stores in the developing world. We’re of course talking about the Toyota Prius, a car that while environmentally friendly, lacks the glamour of an Elon Musk Tesla and the Big Dick Energy of a Maserati. Despite various updates to it’s appearance over the years, the Prius has never been considered a sexy car worthy of champagne sho...

'He doesn't seem to want to build any confidence': Wall Street's asking questions of Elon Musk (TSLA)
