Tesla Short Sellers Have A Horrible Record On Tesla Production & Sales — Truly Funny Tweets

It appears that evidently Tesla has had critics because the day it got here out of stealth — or earlier than that. Even CEO and co-founder Elon Musk didn’t anticipate the corporate to succeed. He simply poured his cash into it on the slim probability that it might succeed, and would thus assist humanity to avert super local weather catastrophe. In fact, he feels in a different way concerning the company now that it has succeeded than on Day 1. However this story isn’t about Elon Musk.

Those of us who have been following Tesla for a while can certainly keep in mind that the corporate was being attacked within the press, by many on Wall Road, and by auto business specialists the day we first discovered about young automaker. As I highlighted lately when launching an annual “Tesla Death Anniversary” celebration, a “Tesla Death Watch” collection kicked off on another media outlet approach back on Might 19, 2008 — 11 years ago. Every year since then — nicely, in all probability daily since then — someone somewhere has been claiming that Tesla’s demise is simply across the nook, that it’ll go bankrupt any day.

For sure, Tesla continues to be here. And the claims proceed.

Industries at risk when Tesla succeeds:
ICE automobiles
Automotive sellers
Rail and other power transportation
Auto elements
auto service
Fuel stations
Did I overlook some? You marvel why there’s so much FUD on the market.

Sure, for positive, many people within the oil business (together with buyers) and within the auto business (including buyers) would love to see Tesla crash & burn. Yes, for positive, many people predict Tesla’s imminent demise merely as a hope. (The facility of now?)

However in case you look back on the document of people claiming Tesla is close to its end, or no less than gained’t last for an additional 5 years, it seems actually dangerous. We do this occasionally in a Tesla Flashbacks function, nevertheless it seems others are doing it increasingly on Twitter — in some epic methods. Under are a couple of tweets I’ve just lately spotted that help to spotlight how horribly off the mark many brief sellers and critics have been.
