Tesla Inc - Discussion about the company and CEO.

It has been noted that a lot of the discussion in the Model 3 and Model Y threads is about Telsa and CEO Elon Musk not the actual cars. So here is a thread to talk about the company.

This should be a big week for Tesla.

22-April:
Musk his having a press conference to talk about autonomous driving.

24-April:
Tesla publishes their 1st quarter 2019 report

Things I will be looking for in the 1Q2019 report:
  • How much did Tesla lose.
  • How much cash do they have left
  • What is their debt load (specifically how much do they owe suppliers)
  • What is their Capital Spending. (Tesla cut Cap Ex spending in the 4th quarter to show a profit. Are they continuing the trend or are they spending the money necessary to launch the new vehicles they have promised)

25-April:
Thursday is the deadline for Musk and the SEC to reach an agreement on the outstanding lawsuit over Musk's tweets


Rounding out things happening at Tesla - Panasonic says they will not do the planned expansion at the Nevada Gigafactory to increase battery production. That is a pretty good indication that at least Panasonic is not expecting continued Tesla sales growth
