How did we shareholders get to this milestone? After all, Tesla has done everything totally wrong for years. Haven’t you been reading? This company can’t do anything right.
The Gigafactory? A mistake.
Model X? A mistake. Never mind the fact that the world has gone SUV-crazy, with the US the craziest of all. Never mind that Tesla is selling almost as many SUVs as sedans — and for higher gross. It’s all a mistake.
This article, too, is about the Model X mistake. It violates Tesla’s original mission statement of increasingly affordable cars.
Autopilot? Another mistake.
SolarCity acquisition? Mistake. No, disaster.
And Model III? You guessed it. A mistake.
So now you know the secret recipe for success is a long string of catastrophic misfires.
