    it is not about what they need but rather what they can get away with. Had thay gone with a 4 billion raise the stock price would suffer so they just get enough to last until next year

    "Tesla needs a miracle in battery pricing to achieve the Model 3 target price"

    no kidding

    just another example of a poorly managed company. Not overseeing contract works effectively, not manufacturing with quality standards, not managing their financial health, although the capital raise is a good start. Get it while you can. Of course Musk is cashing up a billion dollar bonus.

    balky doors, interior trim-piece tolerances, paint-spray quality, malfunctioning second-row seats, sheet-metal panel gaps, and climate control issues, windshield Model X’s uniquely curved windshield has resulted in “double vision” distortion of headlights, taillights, and streetlamps at night.

    give this poorly managed company more money........................................1 billion for Must personally and 1.4 billion for the company to last another year

  • His ownership stake goes up after the billion dollar pay day. over 5 million options priced at $6.00

    so all up there will be about 12 million new shares in Tesla or about 9% dilution of ownership. If the share price holds then the market value goes up 9%

    next great shorting opportunity is just before Q3 report............

    maybe Tesla needs to learn how to manage its contractors.

    so we are all in agreement then......................
    no reason to go for the next yr or so,
    next few quarters critical
    some of us think selling the X and S will be challenging over the next few quarters

    Sounds plausible to me............ and I agree the fees are driving the ship right now, like a dog salivating over an nice juicy bone about to come his way. licking their chops

    Tesla may undershoot on capital again only 1 or 2 billion with a bunch of rhetoric about free cash flow and sales ramp up , gross margin ramp up covering growth beyond the accelerated production plan..................and a bunch more lies........................so we can focus on the model 3 ..........blah blah blah then raise some more down the road..............again

    I made some good money buying put options back then as GM collapsed. The stock was very overvalued, just as Tesla is today......overvalued. is that a concept you can understand. its like asking $50,000 for a 2008 ford ranger picup truck. ......... hey buddy nice truck but you are asking too much, price needs to drop

  • First the reports of poor reliability from "Consumers report" ...they said "In Consumer Reports’ most recent annual reliability survey, the Model S sedan had a worse than average overall problem rate, and it quite nearly indexed as much-worse than average. The main problem areas involved the drivetrain, power equipment, charging equipment, giant iPad-like center console, and body and sunroof squeaks, rattles, and leaks. Consumer Reports releases reliability data in the fall." and on the model X " and they described a 75-year-old retiree's trip home in the new car, a $138,000 titanium-on-beige Model X P90D. He faced a string of problems as soon as he left the factory—delaying his journey.

    "One of the wildly designed, upswinging “falcon wing” rear doors failed to close, then later didn't sense an overhang and bonked into it, leaving a ding in the door. The driver's door failed to open, except from the inside. The driver’s door window wouldn’t motor down properly, until it dislodged a piece of chrome stripping that was restricting its progress. And, continuing a trend seen with many Model S sedans, the huge infotainment screen in Karpf's SUV has frozen repeatedly. In addition, there are manufacturing design issues. For example, the Model X’s uniquely curved windshield has resulted in “double vision” distortion of headlights, taillights, and streetlamps at night. The effect is distracting and tiring, and it makes following distances difficult to gauge."

    and then there is the foreign cheap labor scandal and all the executives leaving

    astonishing................will the leader of the human resources dept please stand up and explain what is going on...................

    will the expansion of the model 3 factory be the same story??

    Warren might offer Elon a financing deal similar to the ones he offered goldman sacs and bank of america.....................a couple billion in preferred stock with a 10% coupon along with 5 billion in long term warrants to purchase tesla stock in 10 years time at under $200 per share........................but wait a minute Tesla does not make any money so how would they pay the 200 million in annual interest payments???

  • like balky doors, interior trim-piece tolerances, paint-spray quality, malfunctioning second-row seats, sheet-metal panel gaps, and climate control issues. The Model X is still very early in production, with only a few thousand vehicles produced to date.

    The model X is very nearly rating much worse than average for reliability....................

    why would a company with a billion customers buy a capital intensive manufacturing business with a customer base that will stay below 1 miillion until after 2019. There is nothing of value to chase..............just an overpriced car company serving a niche market that has aspirations of entering the price competitive market of mainstream car companies.

    maybe 90% of this message board see that Tesla is overvalued and there is opportunity to make money betting on the short side. These patriotic bloggers along with other shorts prevent to a small degree run away speculation in the stock price which ultimately translates into big losses for the longs when the bubble bursts. See we are saving you from yourself.
    That is a much simpler argument than your conspiracy theory.

    Consumer report article

    interior trim-piece tolerances, paint-spray quality, malfunctioning second-row seats, sheet-metal panel gaps, and climate control issues. The Model X is still very early in production, with only a few thousand vehicles produced to date.

    Tesla also has conducted a recall of 2,700 Model X units for a third-row seat latch that did not fasten properly—a potential safety issue.

    In response to Consumer Reports' questions about these quality issues, a Tesla spokeswoman wrote in an email: “We are committed to making the world's most reliable cars. While we have seen some issues with early Model X builds, the issues are not widespread, and we are working closely with each owner to respond quickly and proactively to address any problems. We will continue to do so until each customer is fully satisfied. This commitment is one of the reasons why 98 percent of our customers say they will buy another Tesla as their next car.”

    Such issues are expected from a brand-new model. Consumer Reports recommends against buying a vehicle in its first year of production—especially a ground-up vehicle with the incredible complexity of a Tesla. Even the Toyota Prius, noted for bulletproof reliability, slipped slightly during its 2010 redesign.

    In this case, the Model X shares underpinnings with the Model S sedan, but it also features numerous features not seen in the sedan.

    In Consumer Reports’ most recent annual reliability survey, the Model S sedan had a worse than average overall problem rate, and it quite nearly indexed as much-worse than average. The main problem areas involved the drivetrain, power equipment, charging equipment, giant iPad-like center console, and body and sunroof squeaks, rattles, and leaks. Consumer Reports releases reliability data in the fall.

    "in the meantime... you get to watch the complete failure of the MX and flattening MS sales."

    That is the story to watch. Unfortunately for Tesla the model X is sapping goodwill from the customer base. Had they developed a better model, they may have bridged to the model 3 effectively. The windhield visibility issues, fit and finish issues and the falcon wing doors are causing them no end of headaches.......so many musk has decided to move into the factory and sleep next to the problem

    The next year and 1/2 will be very challenging................ it is a compelling short for the next 8 - 12 months
