    Tesla Shutting Down Model 3 Line-Yet Again

    I caught the story in an aggregate site this morning so I had to do a search, and so many dates pop up, it's hard to find the latest one.

    6 days, better suited to produce millions of cars, yada, yada, May 26-31.

    https://www.cnbc.com/2018/05/15/tesl...more-days.html

    Hassles at the Model 3 plant keep the other controversies from getting discussed, like the pickup and the semi and the newest car, gimme your deposit, I could use some cash.

    Come at me, bro.

    Another day another delay what can you say.

    Honestly I wish no ill for Tesla the company and it's workers. A friend of mine just got hired by Tesla and is moving down to Cali. That said I would love to see the speculative gas come out of the TSLA stock balloon.

    Seeking Alpha is awful.

    Semi is coming.

    Yes, Tesla burns through cash but it's not just a car company. There will be plenty of backers.

    Like many on this site I have no ill will for Tesla or its workers, but the master of the universe, Elon Musk is hard to take. He has more lives than a cat. Wall Street analysts have been propping Tesla up for years. Next we will hear that it is "Too green to fail" from the California Politicians in Sacramento. I don't think the US Treasury will be bailing out Tesla.

    I honestly do not think anyone has 'ill will' towards Tesla. The problem is the whole Musk master yoda tone of the company and the groupies around him. The reality is, this is a difficult business. He acts like auto companies that have been in business for over 100 years are idiots, then his groupies die in fiery fires and he does not even seem to care that his customers are killing themselves in his beta tests...

    That is really the beef...

    Re: Tesla Shutting Down Model 3 Line-Yet Again

    Given TSLA is trading around 285, I imagine some of those shorts did quite well if they were at the 350-ish number awhile back.

    I'd also mention that Nikola may beat Tesla to the punch on trucks. They appear to have a deeper reservation list, counting Anheiser Busch as a big order.

    Gotta love the irony of Nikola suing Tesla. Edison's medicine??

    Make all of Elon’s crap run on a separate road so they can all kill each other.
