Hobson’s Choice: Tesla Slashing Interior Options for Big-bucks Models

Back in September, the House of Elon decreed the Model 3 would be available in fewer colors, an apparent effort to streamline production of the company’s first high-production model.

All the ways that Tesla could go bankrupt in the next year (TSLA)

For the first time in ten years, a Tesla bankruptcy is being seriously discussed. Tesla is currently under enormous financial stress. There are several ways that Tesla could end up in Chapter 11. Bob Lutz watched General Motors go into bankruptcy in 2009, and for several years, he has been deeply critical of Tesla and CEO Elon Musk. "I've been totally consistent on this," he told CNBC last week, following Tesla's first-quarter earnings and after a surreal Muskian performance on a conference ...

Hedge Fund Manager Convinced Tesla Shares Will Collapse

American investment manager and short-seller extraordinaire Jim Chanos claims Tesla is “headed for a brick wall.” Having deemed the automaker as structurally unprofitable, Chanos said, “Three years ago, this company was supposed to be making money [today].

Consumer Reports and Tesla Feud Continues Over Model 3

Tesla Motors and Consumer Reports have enjoyed a fairly contentious relationship with each other over the last few years.

No Matter What Happens To Tesla, The Model S Is An Amazing Machine

“You park it,” the brusque, fifty-something attendant told me as he stared down a Tesla Model S.
