Tesla cuts number of stock colors to streamline production

Chief executive Elon Musk said obsidian black and metallic silver will still be available, but at a higher cost.

As of writing, Tesla shares are trading down 3.02% at $276.89 per share. In the letter, Musk noted that Tesla is poised to have the "most incredible quarter" in its history, and it is about to build and deliver "more than twice as many cars" as it did in Q2 2018.

"Since I joined Tesla on August 6th, the level of public attention placed on the company, as well as the pace within the company, have exceeded my expectations".

Which sentiment comes closer to matching the reality of Tesla's third-quarter performance will go a long way toward determining whether 2018 is viewed as a triumph over adversity or the result of hubris and poor decision-making. The stock price has dropped almost 12 percent since the first of the year.

Former Tesla employee Neil Joseph, who lead the Model S delivery program, reported to Guillen and sat at the desk immediately to the left of him for a roughly yearlong period ending in 2013.

Despite being optimistic in the short run, Sacconaghi still questioned Tesla's ability to sustain its profitability for its Model 3 vehicle.

The company announced the departure in a regulatory filing.

Musk late Friday announced several promotions and said the company was ready to have "the most fantastic quarter in our history".

During a podcast shown on YouTube, Mr Musk inhales from what the host says is a combined marijuana-tobacco joint. Praised by reviewers, but subject to production delays and reports of inconsistent quality, the vehicle has put pressure on Tesla to prove it can transition from a luxury automaker to a mass-market one.

On the same day of the HR announcement, Chief Accounting Officer Dave Morton resigned after working for only one month at Tesla.

"Elon recognizes that he can't do everything himself", Gene Munster, a managing partner at venture capital firm Loup Ventures, said by phone. While Tesla gets more leeway from customers over quality issues than other brands, Anand said, some of its new customers might not be as patient. Tesla is down more than 25 percent over the past month and has dropped 15.5 percent this year. "This should give Musk more bandwidth", Kim said, as well as time to "regroup himself".
