Most of the above is garbage. Tripp released some VIN numbers. The fired employee, come on, what's next a sex trafficking subsidiary? What grown up would that be? Yet another stuffed shirt "professional"? Ask Apple how that worked out with John Scully brought in to make Steve Jobs grow up. These guys just don't get it -- Silicon Valley CEOs aren't your daddy's CEOs. These guys are visionary entrepreneurs, not country club types.
Tesla gave analysts a tour of the Fremont factory to see the Model 3 Line at Work. They came away impressed.
They now believe 8,000 by the end of the year will happen. This is what is important. The rest of it is FUD floated by desperate shorts, oil company fronts, etc.
