I think at some point it will become a stretch to call it a car company. The growing amount of revenue coming from grid storage products, commercial and home solar and storage and of course the world wide Supercharger network differentiate Tesla from other automotive companies. Tesla sold a ton of software performance and feature enhancement updates to model 3 and y owners in the last quarter. I wonder how many software performance and feature enhancement updates Toyota sold. I’m not sure it’s a fair comparison. Completely different business model.

Just sayin. D

Based on share price times shares

One DOT/NHTSA recall might topple Tusk's empire

If growth continues who will be bigger in 10 years?

If. There is the stock market and there is actual production and the competition to Tesla is just getting started.

Second quarter numbers out. Over 90,000 delivered. Pretty much every other manufacturer saw 20 to 30 percent drop in sales. Tesla saw an increase and order books are already healthy for next quarter.

Although I would agree that competition is coming there is currently no real competitors out there. I think Volkswagen is the only one close in the next couple years.

In the late 50's Ford and GM both tried to become all things to all people. I hope that Tesla learns from their mistakes.

I don’t know much about car manufacturing but I think that is probably sage advice. I have mixed feelings about the plans for the model B entry level EV for the Asian market. Right now Tesla is considered a premium brand. I’m not sure it’s a good idea to jeapordize that. Leave that market to ford or GM....although they don’t seem to have much interest in it right now. I think Tesla’s entry into the truck market is a good idea. There is definetly a market for a premium high performance truck brand which is pretty much empty right now.

Stock price cares about July ---> Sept and forward... not April during a shutdown.

Who bought at 1,000? You made 20% as of today.

Yes. The factory was closed along with many delivery centres due to COVID. No production and few deliveries. My reference is for the quarter.
