    Tesla will no longer reach its long-stated goal of producing 5,000 Model 3 cars per week in 2017, pushing that deadline back amid production hiccups and a massive $619 million quarterly loss.

    And they have a 500,000 waiting list?

    Its total liabilities are now up to $22 billion following the investment the company has made in both the Model 3ís Fremont assembly line and the Nevada Gigafactory.

    Really a pyramid scheme, though in a sense any growth business is. The problem with this particular pyramid is that the foundation blocks are all tax subsidies and incentives rather than legit demand at a true and undistorted price point.
