The continuing Elon Musk car crash is like Jeff Skilling and Enron all over again. At least Skilling took real questions in his earnings call, Musk just seems interested in surrounding himself with obsequious lackey's.

Steve Jobs operated exactly the same for decades. Never stopped any of us in the business for saying to all and sundry what a totally nasty piece of shit Jobs was. Only the journalists kept quiet. Because the media outlets have always been run by total cowards who fold at the slightest threats from the Jobs of the world.

But as Musk is a third rate ersatz Steve Jobs media outlets like the SJ Mercury run exceptionally unflattering stories all the time about Musk and Tesla. Because even when it comes to bullying, Musk is just as big a phony as he is in everything else.

More employee allegations, this time from SolarCity - https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/201 ... valuation/

Results and conference call today should be interesting. All eyes will be on the liquidity position, especially if the cash burn proves to be especially bad this quarter.

Results out.
Burned less cash than expected.
Shares up 9% after hours.

Plans to "borrow locally" to build a $2Bn factory in China.

Plan on making their own computer chips to replace Nvidia.

Still promising to be cash flow positive by year end, and not to dilute equity.

Oh and Atari games now available on the in car console.

The Tesla results were bad, just not as bad as what the bears thought they could be. The reason for the spike in the share price though was Musk's claim that Tesla would be cash flow positive in Q3 and Q4. Musk seemed pretty confident about that, so I am guessing maybe he has a few mouse nuts (ZEV credits) tucked away to make the numbers. What's interesting currently though, is that quite a few bears are stationing themselves around Tesla facilities, keeping tabs on staff numbers, trucking coming in/out, flying over the buildings with drones, etc. It all seems a bit obsessive compulsive to me, but it makes for interesting viewing.

I was a bit surprised to see that there is a big build up of new Model 3's, crammed bumper to bumper on dirt lots. The build-up of inventory is one thing, but to store supposedly premium cars in an environment like this?

Meanwhile, in the Volkswagen HQ in Wolfsbug, cars with a much lower price tag are being stored awaiting delivery in this.

Early 2000s in the UK and on the continent there was a glut of production usually stored on disused airfields. A certain number of these were Rover cars, between their sale by BMW in 2000 and the Marque's collapse in 2005.
