Last quote about Tesla

Steve Wozniak
Tesla has in people's mind that they have cars that will just drive themselves totally, and it is so far from the truth, so they have deceived us. Sometimes Teslas are dangerous because of what they call 'Autopilot'. You get thinking, Oh, it is easy, I can reach over and not look for a few seconds,' and that is the second your car drifts over the line.feedback

David Einhorn

The market remains very challenging for value investing strategies, as growth stocks have continued to outperform value stocks. The persistence of this dynamic leads to questions regarding whether value investing is a viable strategy. Tesla had an awful quarter both in its current results and future prospects. In response, its shares fell almost 6%. We believe it deserved much worse.feedback

Bryan Meehan - Blue Bottle Coffee

I don't need to be at Yellowstone Club hearing about how much money someone has or how much they love their new Tesla. I'd rather have my mind stretched by listening to a human rights campaigner.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

What's going to happen is robots will be able to do everything better than us. ... I mean all of us. Yeah, I am not sure exactly what to do about this. This is really the scariest problem to me, I will tell you.feedback

Alwaleed bin Talal - Kingdom Holding

All other companies are going into the Tesla path of electric cars and even autonomous cars … So 5, 10, 20 years [from now] there is no doubt the dependence on oil will have to diminish. Saudi Arabia's move to reduce its dependence on oil is very important and smart. We would like to celebrate when we export the last drop of oil and be dependent on other sources of wealth. Maybe some people believe the value is right. It's not for me to enter [at] that price. It's too exuberant for me right now.feedback

Ryan Brinkman - JPMorgan Chase & Co.

Deliveries of Model 3 vehicles significantly underwhelmed relative to both management guidance and our own delivery expectations. Management cited production bottlenecks as the primary driver of the lower than expected deliveries of the newly launched Model 3 vehicles, furthering our concerns that significant execution risks exist associated with the roll-out of the Model 3 that seem insufficiently reflected in current valuation.feedback

John Berger

Global battery makers like Tesla were completely focused on the electric vehicle market. [Hurricane] Maria has changed that.feedback

Ryan Serhant

It's not that long ago where the Woolworth building was the tallest in the city. But now it's the 25th tallest.feedback

Ryan Serhant

It used to be that buyers really cared about proximity to public transportation. Now that's as easy as a click of a button on your phone. I've got more and more clients who need to find a place where they can charge their Tesla. And buyers want big, extravagant play areas for their kids. The kiddos have become a big area of focus when shopping for a new home.feedback

Ryan Serhant

The outer boroughs are really starting to heat up. We're seeing $16 million sales in Brooklyn, which used to be unheard of. And I'm getting requests from foreign buyers for places like Greenpoint and Harlem.feedback

Ryan Brinkman - JPMorgan Chase & Co.

While the difficulties in ramping the vehicle Model 3 could very well prove temporary, we do wonder if they could hint at structurally lower profitability for the vehicle on a go-forward basis (for example if the vehicle were not as easy or simple to manufacture as intended), prompting our concerns about margin. We worry that if the vehicle proves structurally more expensive to manufacture, that in order to preserve the targeted gross margin, Tesla may need to increase the price of the vehicle to consumers, with negative implications for demand.feedback

Uwe Herzig

We have developed our own remuneration structure in very pragmatic discussions.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

Tesla gets top rating of any company in service. Most important, CR says 97 percent of owners expect their next car to be a Tesla (the acid test).feedback

Jake Fisher - General Motors

It should be the least complicated vehicle that Tesla really has ever produced.feedback

Jake Fisher - General Motors

We are predicting that the Model 3 should have about average reliability. We don't go around recommending that people buy cars that are below average, so if it is average or better, that is not a bad thing at all. But let's be very clear, we are not giving it super high marks. We are saying it is basically par for the course.feedback

Owen Diaz

That was probably one of the lowest points in my life. I just couldn't take it anymore. Don't sweep it under the rug and send your PR out to do damage control. Step up to the plate.feedback

Chris Dolan - Ferro

The steps taken by the company were woefully inadequate. It's perceived by many to be retaliatory. It sends a message to other employees that if you complain, you're the one who's going to have your job changed. In essence, you're penalizing the party who's making the complaint.feedback

Scott Kelly

When Elon Musk said he was going to launch his rocket and then land the first stage on a barge, I thought he was crazy. And then he did it. So I'm not going to ever doubt what he says, ever again.feedback

Larry Organ

Tesla's trying to make this story about civil rights lawyers, instead of civil rights. This is about stopping people at Tesla factories from using the n-word, plain and simple.feedback

Jim Cramer

I'm not asking for there to be a suspension of rigor – which is at times the case with Tesla. I'm not asking for 100 percent rigor and no pizazz, which often can be the case with dry subjects like insurance or banking. I just think a little fun injects confidence into the proceedings, and in a world that lacks confidence, it's nice to hear it in a CEO's voice every now and then. It makes you feel more confident yourself, so if a stock gets hammered, like Netflix was today, you know that you should buy it into weakness.feedback

Alexander Potter - Piper Jaffray

Anyone who has taken a ride in a Chinese EV will tell you that, like most other Chinese sedans, these vehicles just aren't compelling consumer products.feedback

Alexander Potter - Piper Jaffray

After meeting with an electric vehicle (EV) trade group this week in Beijing, we still think Tesla has little to fear from Chinese brands, at least based on the current competitive landscape. Branding and performance are just as important, and in this regard, we think nobody (least of all Chinese OEMs) can compete with TSLA.feedback

Cathie Wood - Ark

[Cryptocurrency] markets are huge. We believe that digital services are as integral, or maybe more integral to our lives, than commodities that are traded on exchanges right now. It's interesting that you've got corn and oil and copper trading on the exchange but you don't have computing power, and bandwidth, and storage necessarily. Well, we think that's going to happen because of blockchain technology and all of the cryptos that are coming along.feedback

Richard Branson - Virgin Group

Earlier this summer I was fortunate to visit the site and see first-hand the exciting technology being tested. I was very impressed and now look forward to helping turn this cutting edge engineering into a global passenger service.feedback

Adam Jonas - Morgan Stanley & Co. International

The market's still good, the credit environment is still, let's say, open and accessible, if flattening a bit. And that's not gonna last forever. Auto companies "better make hay while the sun's shining because it's going to be harder to do those deals, attract talent and partnerships when you're hemorrhaging cash and your stock might be 50 percent lower or so. That window is going to close at some point.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

I looked through them all and the one I liked the best was the E-Type Jaguar and I said, well, if I can ever afford it, that is the car I am going to get. And so that's why I bought it.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

That was like a bad girlfriend – it kept breaking down on me and caused me all sorts of trouble. In fact, it broke down on the way back from the dealer. I scrapped the car at that point. Peter said, So what can this do?' and like probably No. 1 on the list of famous last words, I said, Watch this.' So I floored it and did a lane change on Sand Hill. We hit an embankment, like a 45-degree embankment on Sand Hill, which tossed the car into the air like a discus and it kept rotating with about three foot of air clearance.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

The point of [building Tesla] was, and remains, accelerating the advent of sustainable energy, so that we can imagine far into the future and life is still good. That's what 'sustainable' means. It's not some silly, hippy thing – it matters for everyone.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

By definition, we must at some point achieve a sustainable energy economy or we will run out of fossil fuels to burn and civilization will collapse. Given that we must get off fossil fuels anyway and that virtually all scientists agree that dramatically increasing atmospheric and oceanic carbon levels is insane, the faster we achieve sustainability, the better.feedback

Mark W. Yusko - Morgan Creek Capital

To own Tesla stock at these valuations, one must believe that a company that has never hit an earnings milestone in its history can suddenly solve their production problems, solve their technology scaling challenges, stem their massive cash burn rate and hope that no other luxury car maker ever offers a competing EV. We are fond of saying that Hope is not an investment strategy, it is a four letter word and it appears that time may be running out for the Teslarians.feedback

David Whiston - Morningstar

I think that as long as fear is absent from the market, the market will mostly look the other way on [Q3 delivery] misses like this because there is a lot of faith that Tesla will be far bigger in time than it is today. Whether the Model 3 line gets going full speed in 2017 or early 2018 doesn't matter much in the long-run. A more serious issue would be a delay impacting large volume of Model 3 deliveries for several quarters, or even a year, but there's no evidence to suggest that is a real risk right now.feedback

Fred Hickey

Tesla's stock has been egregiously overvalued for years. However, up until now, the stock market invince-a-bulls have been able to ignore all bad news - not just Elon Musk's frequent wide-of-the-mark forecasts. Therefore, if Tesla's sharp Monday decline continues, it could tell us as much about how much gas is left in the bull market's tank as it does about how much rope Musk has remaining.feedback

Adam Jonas - Morgan Stanley & Co. International

Infrastructure (of lack thereof) is the 'elephant in the room' of the EV revolution. Compared to other OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturer), Tesla has made the biggest proprietary investment in superchargers and destination chargers globally. In most communities, we believe this infrastructure is larger than it needs to be in preparation for the expansion of the serviceable and charge-thirsty fleet. Other OEMs will closely watch how consumers react to this infrastructure.feedback

Adam Jonas - Morgan Stanley & Co. International

I would describe the current environment for autos as a magical, magical time.feedback

Finn Murphy

I think this is imminent. Five years or so. This is a space race – the race to get the first driverless vehicle that is viable. My fellow drivers don't appear to be particularly concerned about this. They think it's way off into the future. All the people I have talked to on this book tour, nobody thinks this is imminent except for me. Me and Elon Musk, I guess.feedback

Lynn Jurich - Sunrun

Rooftop solar paired with batteries is a scale-able, cost-effective option and capable of strengthening electric grids worldwide, especially in remote island regions.feedback

Brad Creer

Everything is needed down there, but we are trying to help out in a unique way.feedback

Brad Creer

That's what's great to see: They're getting together; we are putting all our competition aside to do this.feedback

Abigail Ross Hopper

The devastation of the grid there means we can rebuild the way people actually use electricity as opposed to what we've always done.feedback

Kyle Vogt

Driving in San Francisco is almost nothing like driving in the suburbs, or other places where self-driving cars are tested.feedback

Rod Lache - Deutsche Bank

GM's AV's will be ready for commercial deployment, without human drivers, much sooner than widely expected (within quarters, not years), and potentially years ahead of competitors.feedback

Toni Sacconaghi

We worry about whether Tesla can successfully build the mass-market Model 3: (1) with good gross margins, (2) with good quality, and (3) on time.feedback

David Tamberrino

We continue to maintain our more cautious Model 3 ramp, which is far below company targets.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

December will be a huge month, so probably, but it is impossible to be certain right now.feedback

Adam Jonas - Morgan Stanley & Co. International

But they see the competition coming from all sides, and I think this window's open for them to do something now, and it's got the market a bit excited. I think longer term they are in a very difficult place, frankly. Don't count them out, but very difficult.feedback

Harry Kroeger - Bosch

I think there is a risk of a certain arrogance that you totally underestimate what kind of sophistication is in that good old fashioned hardware. There is 130 years of evolution in those parts and some of those lessons were learned the hard way. A gadget, we don't care if that malfunctions, but we are talking about something which might run at 100 mph. Here you don't want a blue screen of death appearing.feedback

Harry Kroeger - Bosch

Tesla has thousands of old economy car guys. I think that's the secret why they managed to come up with a car.feedback

Romit Shah - Nomura Securities

Tesla is vertically integrated, owning both the manufacturing and much of the supply chain, similar to Intel when it scaled revenues from $4bn to $34bn during the 1990s' PC era. Whereas the limiting factor for PCs was processor performance, for EVs [electric vehicles] it is cost and battery range, and improving each primarily depends on advances in lithium-ion battery density … We believe that Tesla, much like Intel in the 1990s, is well positioned to accrue most of the profits in the electric vehicle value chain.feedback

Romit Shah - Nomura Securities

We believe that Tesla has an insurmountable lead in vehicle range per dollar; benefits from what we believe is a largely inferior competitive field, which should help sustain current growth.feedback

Carsten Breitfeld - Federal Maritime Commission

Trying to adapt a volume architecture to produce electric, diesel and plug-in hybrids is fundamentally flawed, because these products will be compromised.feedback

Carsten Breitfeld - Federal Maritime Commission

Tesla was pathbreaking with its electric car, and that's what everybody is seeking to develop now. The next step is the connected car, which gives consumers a completely new digital experience. That's equivalent to a step from the Nokia to a smartphone.feedback

Klaus Froehlich - BMW

It is easy to build an electric car. It is difficult to earn money with it.feedback

Harry Kroeger - Bosch

It should not be that a malfunction in loading a song creates a braking manoeuvre.feedback

Carsten Breitfeld - Federal Maritime Commission

Apple created a platform and profits from every transaction made with their objects. We will offer content for our consumers. For this you need a completely different architecture and computing power.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

Talk is cheap. Action is difficult. We wanted to show that it's not just talk, it's reality.feedback

Tom Siebel

Let's look at the facts: In the last 50 years, if we look at the Fortune 500 50 years ago, 90 percent of those companies are gone. If we look at the companies that are in existence today in the Fortune 100, in 30 years 15 percent of them are gone. These new business models, I mean – think about Tesla, think about Amazon, think about Facebook, think about Snapchat. You know, many of these companies that do not make this transition to this new kind of generation of what's going on – candidly, they're going to be out of business.feedback

Tom Siebel

These new business models, I mean – think about Tesla, think about Amazon, think about Facebook, think about Snapchat. You know, many of these companies that do not make this transition to this new kind of generation of what's going on – candidly, they're going to be out of business.feedback

Nicholas Colas - ConvergeX

It's obviously going to be a lot of capital markets discussion. We're also going to be touching very heavily on the data revolution and innovation disruption generally. Retail talks about Amazon, auto talks but Tesla. But everybody views innovation in their very narrow vertical. There's a lot of work to be done to understand how this broad-based technological disruption coming out of Silicon Valley really affects the entire economy, the capitalist ecosystem. I don't think there's anybody putting those dots together in a creative way.feedback

Tom Koutsantonis

Construction at the site is already well underway. The batteries are on track to be operational by Dec. 1.feedback

Paul Nieuwenhuis

The timescale sounds tight if you are developing the car and building it. Some manufacturers have managed it in three years. However, they do that with a lot of technology carried-over from other models. Britain is stuffed with a lot of engineers with experience specifically in low-volume manufacturing. For example, TVR could produce a new car in 18 months. So if that's the way they are thinking, the timescale is doable but very, very tight. If you are a new entrant, it's much easier to go in at the top, as Tesla has done, than at the bottom.feedback

Alexander Haissl

Tesla's competitive advantage in the product itself, the manufacturing process and footprint will likely allow it to gain unencumbered market share for a longer period than expected, helping to elevate long-term profitability.feedback

Maye Musk

I haven't gotten the 3 yet. I'm at around 300,000 [on the waiting list]. Even though I have good connections, I can't jump the line.feedback

Alexander Potter - Piper Jaffray

China could eventually be Tesla's biggest source of revenue. If Tesla sidesteps [its] obstacles by making EVs locally, the company may be well-positioned to build on its recent successes … The company was wise to delay investment, but once these JV-related policy details are finalized, we expect Tesla to announce its China strategy in relatively short order.feedback

Toni Sacconaghi

Tesla's persistent cash burn has been a major investor controversy … In fact, Tesla may be the largest public company in history to have never generated either positive annual cash flow or positive annual profit. Even if we can disregard Tesla's cash burn, we continue to worry about the company's ability to deliver upon its long-term vision of profitability. Specifically, we worry about whether Tesla can successfully build the mass-market Model 3: (1) with good gross margins, (2) with good quality, and (3) on time.feedback

Toni Sacconaghi

We believe the essential issue with Tesla's stock is not how much cash the company burns right now, but rather how well the company can execute upon its Model 3 launch – specifically around gross margins - and demonstrate that it has a clear path to long-term profitability. We are fairly bullish on the evolution of the EV [electric vehicle] market, but we worry about several near-term issues for Tesla, and would not be chasing the stock at current levels.feedback

Tom Koutsantonis

Construction at the site is already well underway, with a number of the batteries already in South Australia and being installed near Jamestown. The batteries are on track to be operational by December 1.feedback

Jim Cramer

Remember, the cloud lives in the data center. So if the cloud's slowing, the data center should be slowing, too. Yet last night Nvidia announced that its new line of chips won business from three of the largest Chinese data center operators out there: Alibaba, TenCent and Baidu, which are growing like mad. I'll match those orders against a defeat at Tesla any day of the week.feedback

Adam Jonas - Morgan Stanley & Co. International

It has been generations since the investment community witnessed such a high growth rate in the population of a single auto firm. We believe investors should get ready for a mix of opportunities and risks related to this nonlinear parc growth.feedback

Peter Carlsson - Tesla Motors

I can't say exactly when we will announce them, but we are in a number of different parallel discussions.feedback

Rod Lache - Deutsche Bank

GM's AV's will be ready for commercial deployment, without human drivers, much sooner than widely expected (within quarters, not years), and potentially years ahead of competitors. We believe that businesses built off of this platform will ramp much faster than is widely expected. A fast ramp could perpetuate sustainable advantages. And we believe that this will be material, even to a company of GM's size.feedback

Rod Lache - Deutsche Bank

This is a massive market opportunity. The monetization model is recurring in nature (vs. the transactional/cyclical model that automakers live in today), and likely to receive a healthy valuation. GM management believes that their AV's, which are being tested in some of the most complex urban environments (the City of San Francisco), will be ready for commercial deployment much sooner than is widely expected.feedback

Horace Luke

My vision was always about energy-swapping infrastructure. The necessity of building a vehicle was really just to prove that it can be done. Currently the average density in battery technology allows us to do two-wheel very well.feedback

Horace Luke

We're starting to work with large corporations to basically commercialize these ideas. Different markets have different needs and different conditions.feedback

Horace Luke

The idea was that somebody would actually have the ownership experience when it comes to buying the vehicle and a sharing experience when it comes to the battery.feedback

Vibhu Kaushik - Southern California Edison

The Mira Loma battery storage project demonstrates that energy storage is part of (the) energy mix now. These projects can be built very quickly, scaled as needed, (and) they're really good at integrating renewable energy.feedback

Pedro Pizarro - Edison

It's here to stay. It is a variable resource, it's intermittent, and that can challenge its value at times.feedback

Mark Lipacis - Jefferies

While we would not expect shipments of AMD chips to Tesla to have a material impact near term to AMD bottom line … we think this would constitute a critical win for AMD as it would support our thesis that with its parallel processing GPUs, AMD is a beneficiary [of the next big technology shift].feedback

Hans Mosesmann - Rosenblatt Securities

The Tesla/AMD move has disruptive implications to the multi-billion self-driving market. AMD has had zero play in the self-driving market. Also, AMD is the only player in the world that can offer both x86 CPU and strong GPU IP and expertise … The net/net here for AMD is that Tesla has confirmed AMD's CPU and GPU roadmaps in a field that nobody was considering as viable; it says that AMD's CPU/GPUs in PC and server markets are the real deal.feedback

Mark Lipacis - Jefferies

We believe the headline risk to NVDA in the near term will not be favorable; we do not see a clear long-term risk. From a volume perspective, Tesla represents less than 1% of the global autos market, and we think the potential to segment the market may be a possible alternative to another sole-source supplier transition.feedback

Jim Cramer

Here's the bottom line: I like Nvidia, but I love protecting your profits even more. The charts, as interpreted by Carolyn Boroden, suggest that Nvidia could be due for a $10 to $30 pullback after its recent run, and if you're nimble, maybe you want to try to sidestep some of that decline. More important, if Nvidia is pulverized like that, well, maybe you get a chance to own a piece of this great semiconductor company with a remarkable number of strengths and very few weaknesses, even as this potential loss of the Tesla business to AMD could certainly be one of them.feedback

Max Warburton

While Tesla has many advantages, we believe its self-driving capabilities are exaggerated. The Germans – who are working closely with suppliers like Nvidia, Intel as well as Conti and Bosch – are probably just as well positioned. We believe they are under-estimated and undervalued.feedback

Max Warburton

While we only have personal experience of Autopilot 1.0, user reports suggest Autopilot 2.0 is not able to operate at the same speeds as Autopilot 1.0 and is not as smooth or reliable.feedback

Max Warburton

Old and new data are not compatible – even changing the position of a sensor apparently renders historic data obsolete.feedback

Max Warburton

Tesla gets the headlines for its 'Autopilot' system – but Mercedes, BMW, VW and Volvo have put similar technology on the road.feedback

Max Warburton

It's simply too complex – any useful event will need human scrutiny. Tesla likely has a team of computer programmers, who are downloading data and video imagery and studying sudden events. This is no different to what conventional OEMs are doing, with specific test vehicles and with deliberate 'created' events on test tracks.feedback

Philippe Houchois - Jefferies

This note corrects the PT from $280 to $240 due to an error in the DCF [discounted cash flow] share count - No other change.feedback

Philippe Houchois - Jefferies

Achievements to-date and vision are impressive, but we don't think Tesla's vertically integrated business model can be scaled up as profitably and quickly as consensus thinks and valuation multiples imply. Musk is counting on the recently launched Model 3, Tesla's least pricey car, to make the Palo Alto, California company profitable and establish it as the leading electric carmaker ahead of BMW, General Motors, and other long-established players. Wall Street's confidence in Musk has sent Tesla's stock up 83% over the past year to record highs.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

Def not ok. Just sent a reminder to Tesla stores that we just want people to look forward to their next visit. That's what really matters. I'm sure there are better answers than what I do, which is just take the pain and make sure you really care about what you're doing. Robots will be able to do everything better than us.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

The reality is great highs, terrible lows and unrelenting stress. Don't think people want to hear about the last two.feedback

Andreas Renschler - Volkswagen

But such a process takes time, of course. However maybe the German manufacturers were too slow. It could be. Tesla has set some crucial and good impulses in the industry.feedback

Martin Daum - Daimler

Electrification of trucks is of top priority at Daimler. Fast charging is an important topic especially for fleet owners of all Daimler Trucks brands. Together with StoreDot we will now jointly work on a holistic approach to fast charging.feedback

Chamath Palihapitiya

There is not a single person of right, sound mind and body, if you could build a Tesla Model 3 online and get it delivered in 30, 60, 90 days, or you have the choice of buying the BMW 3 Series will choose the BMW.feedback

Chamath Palihapitiya

People are fundamentally misunderstanding the demand of the [Tesla] Model 3. That entire business is going to go to zero.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride tentatively scheduled for Oct 26th in Hawthorne [California]. Worth seeing this beast in person. It's unreal.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

We are showing off a working prototype at the end of September, but we have shown it to people who buy heavy duty trucking, and they all love it. They just want to know how many can they buy and how soon.feedback

Doron Myersdorf - StoreDot

The goal is to be able to ramp quickly new technologies and bring them to mass production as fast as possible. This OneGiga facility would enable us to be at the forefront of the fast charging technology in future generations as well.feedback

Doron Myersdorf - StoreDot

StoreDot's solution combines proprietary organic compounds and nanomaterials that are developed in our labs. We focus on fast charging technology as opposed to the rest of industry which is focused on energy density. StoreDot focuses on developing next-generation Li-ion (lithium-ion) batteries. We do not compete with Tesla. We are very synergetic to Tesla in the sense that the major problem for the driver is the charging speed. We totally share Elon's vision and with our fast charging technology we enhance the ability of car companies to offer exceptional driver experience.feedback

Michael Ramsey

Long recharging times and a lack of infrastructure are two of the key barriers to widespread adoption of electric cars. A large battery that could be recharged in as little as 5 minute could dramatically change the efficacy of the technology. For Daimler – and the German car industry more broadly – making a push into electric gets them ahead of the effects of diesel slowly being pushed out of the fleet.feedback

Steve Hallerman - Citi

The budget was $8,000, $10,000, $12,000, whatever. He didn't know what he would get for his dollar. It is like buying a car: I will show you a Volkswagen and a Tesla. He was unfamiliar with Manhattan, and I wanted to give him a feel for different buildings.feedback

Robert Zumwalt - National Transportation Safety Board

System safeguards were lacking. Tesla allowed the driver to use the system outside of the environment for which it was designed and the system gave far too much leeway to the driver to divert his attention….The result was a collision that, frankly, should have never happened.feedback

Toni Sacconaghi

Even if we disregard the governmental, economic, and technological tailwinds benefiting the BEV segment, market momentum is increasing for BEVs, in no small part thanks to Tesla. Importantly, Tesla has created a compelling BEV unlike any other offered on the market: the Model S, X, and 3 all have wide consumer appeal and excellent performance; arguably, Tesla is changing the mindsets of consumers in terms of what an EV can be.feedback

Toni Sacconaghi

Seeing Tesla's success and bracing for a BEV future, OEMs have jumped onboard.feedback

Robert Sumwalt - National Transportation Safety Board

The result was a collision that, frankly, should never have happened. System safeguards were lacking.feedback

Steven Armstrong - Ford Motor

We have got an investment of about $4.5 billion in electrified vehicles coming over the next few years. And the first one of those for us, as a specific electrified vehicle in Europe, will be in 2020.feedback

Ralf Speth - Jaguar Land Rover

I am absolutely confident we will see battery cars faster than anybody expected on the street and therefore all of the infrastructure will catch up.feedback

Ralf Speth - Jaguar Land Rover

It is quite clear the future will be electric. We are going to deliver a step-by-step complete electrified portfolio and from 2020 onwards all of our cars will deliver the option to be electrified.feedback

Matthias Mueller - Volkswagen

There's going to be a co-existence between combustion engines and electrified drive systems over the next 10 to 20 years, so against this background we should all be patient and relaxed and leave the decision to our customers, they should decide which concept they prefer.feedback

Matthias Mueller - Volkswagen

The diesels we are offering today are clean. They comply with the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP) requirements and they meet the requirements and needs of our customers.feedback

Matthias Mueller - Volkswagen

I think we have to implement a greater presence in Russia and then we have to revive the South American market. And then there is the big issue, Africa. It remains to be seen to what extent the situation down there will be stable, politically speaking, so that is a market where we have to do our homework.feedback

Robert Sumwalt - National Transportation Safety Board

In this crash, Tesla's system worked as designed, but it was designed to perform limited tasks. The result was a collision that should not have happened. System safeguards were lacking. I think it's important to clear up a possible misconception. The automobile involved in the collision was not a self-driving car.feedback

Robert Sumalt - National Transportation Safety Board

Today's automation systems augment, rather than replace human drivers. Drivers must always be prepared to take the wheel or apply the brakes.feedback

Colin Rusch - Oppenheimer Holdings

You're bringing a consumer electronics mentality to a durable-goods product. Adding incremental functionality is an ongoing process for Tesla. We'll see them continue to participate in that over-the-air market.feedback

Georg Tacke - Simon Kucher & Partners

If you have one product and the price is too high, people don't buy it. But if it's too low, you don't exploit some customers' willingness to pay. So you differentiate and, yes, that means damaging the product in some way.feedback

Georg Tacke - Simon Kucher & Partners

The only thing that has changed is that companies can now change the offering during the life cycle of the product. As more software gets into our hardware, the more we are going to see this.feedback

David Bailey

Jaguar are playing catchup - Tesla has stolen a chunk of their lunch, BMW are way ahead as well. The premium end of things is moving more quickly [towards electrification] in part because electric car costs are higher at the moment because of battery costs, so they can absorb that. It's also because they are heavily dependent on diesel and the market is moving away from diesel.feedback

Hiroto Saikawa

If it's successful, the Leaf will be a major part of the portfolio of Nissan. Electric vehicles will no longer be a niche product.feedback

Hiroto Saikawa

We are not necessarily putting up a price with the consideration of our competitors. The pricing range should be affordable. This is a fundamental point. You can do the Tesla type of pricing, but we focus more on our customer portfolio.feedback

Hiroto Saikawa

For the day to day, we can cover most of the cases, which means you don't have to worry about the autonomous range when you drive.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

The one who becomes the leader in this sphere will be the ruler of the world.

When the major car makers want to compete, they can give Tesla a run for their money, but for now they are a bit on the slow side. It's not like Tesla is going to make electric cars and car makers that have existed for 100 years will just roll over. They have built electric technology, they can team up with other firms, and they have distribution networks.feedback

There has been a lot of hype, calling the market subprime, but in the crisis 10 years ago the auto market held up OK. This is factored into valuations – car makers wouldn't be so cheap otherwise.feedback

It's not that retail is left for dead, it's that retail is being reinvented. It used to be a concept is driven by repeat customers, but today, product innovation helps you get those repeat customers. Execution used to be all about inventory management, but today it's powered by speed. Speed of product delivery to one's home or to one's office and also speed of product development to shelf.feedback

Kevin Giddis - Raymond James & Associates

The recent concern is that if the economy turns, so will high-yield debt yields and liquidity. There is a 'tipping' point for high-yield debt, and it may not be now, but investors need to be very selective in this environment, because a lot of these companies are 'high yield' for a reason, and should not be trading at yields this low. The risk is not knowing or being able to see the difference.feedback

Jonathan Duensing

Issuance this month in the high-yield market has been higher than it normally is. Corporate management teams are trying to get ahead of what they may perceive as a period of higher debt costs in September and October.feedback

Kevin Giddis - Raymond James & Associates

High-yield issuers have enjoyed the benefit of not only an economy that is improving, but from some of the lowest yields in history to issue debt, and have been taking advantage of the demand for a number of years.feedback

I am not sure that nickel has got the attention it deserves.

David Santillo - Greenpeace

The mining of nickel-rich ores themselves, combined with their crushing and transportation by conveyor belt, truck or train, can generate high loadings of dust in the air, dust that itself contains high concentrations of potentially toxic metals, including nickel itself, copper, cobalt and chromium. We have to get smarter at recovering and reusing the vast quantities that we have already extracted from the earth, rather than relying on continued pursuit of new reserves of ever poorer quality and at substantial environmental cost.feedback

I think there is quite a radical difference between having solar panels on your roof that actually make your house look better versus ones that do not. I think it's going to be a night and day difference. I think the aesthetics matter a lot. As you know, [at] Tesla we're super sensitive to aesthetics.feedback

Roger McNamee

Horrific things are likely. Think about this with automobiles. We never thought of automobiles as terrorist weapons. But once you start applying them that way, they're really terrifying.

Those companies, in many ways, have lost control. And that a lot of really difficult, bad things are going on in terms of addiction, in terms of what happens in our election and Brexit. You look at these things and you say to yourself, It's really time for the country to step back and have a conversation about: What is the appropriate role of technology? What are the limits to what we're going to allow people to do? And how are we going to make sure that society – jobs, people, and livelihoods – are protected?feedback

Roger McNamee

We have in this country had, at least for the last 10 or 15 years, an almost irrational belief that technology always winds up doing good. And the reality is, it's a lot easier to do bad things with technology than it is to do good. To do good takes tremendous discipline and effort over long periods of time. And you can do bad more or less overnight.feedback

Roger McNamee

I think what Elon's talking about here is that once you start applying automated technology to weaponry, horrific things are likely. And I suspect that that is true. The point I would make is that I think bad things are already happening.feedback

We expect strong demand for the Model 3 and believe the total addressable market will likely be underestimated, but think it will be an ongoing process to ascertain global demand.

An email exchange in May and June between Tesla and Nevada DMV representatives included an agenda for a June 16 meeting, along with the Nevada Department of Transportation, to discuss testing of two prototype trucks in Nevada, according to the exchange seen by Reuters.

Jim Cramer

But the second part? Whoa! It's almost impossible to tell how much money Tesla makes per car, if anything. Nor is it possible to define the future of the company. If everything goes right it could be the next Amazon, a tech company that sells cars, just as Amazon's a tech company that's in retail. If it doesn't, then the stock could flame out.feedback

Jim Cramer

I wish I had an answer for this conundrum. Maybe you just take some real 'Mad Money' and buy one of them: preferably Netflix or Amazon because they're far more proven than Tesla. No matter. The fact is that some stories flunk the near-term fundamentals even as they triumph over the long term. ... Two of these three have already done so. For all I can tell, the third will, too.feedback

Jim Cramer

Making things even more difficult, on the recent conference call, CEO Reed Hastings actually championed the notion that negative free cash flow, something I don't like, will be an indicator of enormous success. I just don't think that would pass the Lynch test.feedback

Giles Keating

There's a kind of arms race on batteries around the world. We know that Elon Musk with Tesla has got this Gigafactory. The Chinese are racing to overtake him; they'll have three times the capacity. And then in Germany, we've just heard announcement of a new plan for a $1 billion factory on batteries.feedback

Giles Keating

I think Tesla was always all about electric cars, whereas I think the conventional auto manufacturers, they were in denial. They just kind of almost wanted batteries to be weak so that they wouldn't have to go that route so that their existing route of business can continue, if I'm brutal about it.feedback

David Einhorn

The company is expected to burn over $2 billion this year as it begins production of its Model 3. It is currently only capitalized for the next three quarters. As Tesla attempts to achieve scale for the Model 3, it will depend on the capital markets' willingness to fund it.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

What people should absolutely have zero concern about, and I mean zero, is that Tesla will achieve a 10,000 unit production week by the end of next year. I think people should really not have any concerns that we won't reach that outcome from a production rate.feedback

Colin Bird - IHS

In terms of ADAS safety features like automatic emergency braking and blind spot detection, consumers wanted to see these features standard across the board. There is a large subset of consumers who are willing to pay for full autonomy features demonstrating that consumers see this more as a value-add rather than a necessary safety component, at least for now.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

The major challenge for us over the six to nine months is how do we build a huge number of cars.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

Model 3 drive units as well as battery packs made with our proprietary 2170 form factor cells are being built on new lines at Gigafactory 1. We are now fine-tuning these manufacturing lines to significantly increase the production rate. We wish we could do all of this faster and get everyone's Model 3 to them right away. It's important to understand that our production ramp will follow an S-Curve, meaning that it will begin slowly, grow exponentially, then start to tail off once we achieve full production.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

It's just fundamentally impossible to predict the exponential part of the manufacturing S-curve. S-curve is a simplification because it's really running through a series of constraints. ... It's like a really jagged sort of upward growth.feedback

Melissa Schilling

You're pumping a lot of money in, and you're getting very little return. As you start getting to the top, you've picked all the low-hanging fruit. Now [you] need to spend a lot more to get further.

Melissa Schilling

It's a lot harder to make an internal combustion engine a lot cheaper or more efficient, or a lot safer.feedback

David Tamberrino

We now see TSLA needing to raise capital in 1Q18E (vs. 2Q18E previously) and continue to see downside risk to Model 3 production.feedback

Jeffrey Osborne - Cowen and Company

We were surprised by the after hours move in TSLA shares and continue to be cautious on the stock, especially as the risk profile shifts from the hype of the Model 3 to execution, or 'production hell' as Elon Musk refers to it. We believe Tesla shares are an overvalued show me story.feedback

Jeffrey Osborne - Cowen and Company

As Tesla's Model 3 ramp proceeds, we continue to have more questions than answers about the company and the vagueness of details coupled with lack of disclosure from management about true capital needs and expense levels need to obtain their ultimate vision.feedback

Colin Rusch - Oppenheimer Holdings

I would agree with that. There's been a huge amount of technology investment on behalf of the major OEMs in Europe and the U.S. along with Tesla. It's a very secret time for that technology. People are doing testing, not sharing data, and the actual performance of these vehicles is really uncertain right now except for the folks who see this inside. What they have done is pretty impressive despite the very aggressive targets that they put out for them.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

When I said 'manufacturing hell,' I meant it. We know this, we signed up for it. Not blaming hell because we bought the ticket. This is maybe the best I've ever felt about Tesla, to be frank.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

Those cancellations occurred over the course of more than a year. I think [these numbers] are inconsequential. With a small amount of effort we can easily drive the Model 3 reservation number to something much higher but there's no point. It's like if you're a restaurant and you're serving hamburgers and there's like an hour and a half wait for hamburgers do you really want to encourage more people to order more hamburgers? When we make mistakes, it's because we're stupid, not because we're trying to mislead anyone. We aspire to be less dumb over time.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

We are going to do everything we can to make cars as fast as we can. Demand is not a challenge here.feedback

Joseph Spak - RBC Capital Partners

While we don't have meaningful reason to doubt that Tesla can eventually achieve its targets, doing so in a timely manner without some growing pains could prove challenging.feedback

One of our big concerns was that Model S and X demand would suffer with introduction of the 3. In fact, this has turned out to be the opposite situation – Model S and X increased. It has turned out to be a pleasant surprise.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

Just as CEO Elon Musk is a respected champion for green energy and innovation, I hope he can also become a champion for his employees.feedback

Stacey Gilbert - Susquehanna

If you're thinking about using options to get a position in here, you're better off using spreads – or maybe just recognizing that on a historical basis, these options are expensive.feedback

Todd Gordon

We're selling a call credit spread above the expected move. So by way of options math, you could say that the market has approximately an 80 percent chance of being below $340 post-earnings.feedback

Todd Gordon

As we go into earnings, I don't mind taking a directional bet here to hedge my longer-term position in Tesla.feedback

Clement Thibault

It's our view that nothing about Tesla's financials or fundamentals right now justifies a price tag of $320 per share. Not a single fundamental parameter. The company may be selling a few cars, but mostly it's being powered by dreams. Some problems have already started to crop up for Tesla...This of course raises questions about Tesla's broader ability to scale not just its manufacturing operation, but the entire supporting infrastructure, particularly since Tesla continues to insist it will run all its operations in-house.feedback

Toni Sacconaghi

Many Tesla owners may never return to internal combustion engine (ICE) cars and while many would consider other competitive electric vehicle (EV) offerings, most appear to be relatively loyal to Tesla, underscoring Tesla's first mover advantage.feedback

Toni Sacconaghi

Cannibalization by the Model 3 is clearly a risk – the fact that nearly a third of current owners hold reservations raises concerns that the Model 3 may cannibalize sales of higher-end Tesla models upon launch.feedback

David Sullivan

Owners of the more expensive Models S and X are generally more willing to tolerate problems because they have other vehicles they can drive while their Tesla is in the shop.feedback
