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.

Musk his having a press conference to talk about autonomous driving.

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)

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
