Why we live so long.
How the hell is Musk gonna raise capital in any way efficiently when corporate bond yields are higher than those of Ukraine? It's last brush with the federal regulator ended without incident - the agency ruled that a fatal Florida crash was the result of driver error, and that Tesla's controversial autopilot software which has been implicated in several fatal accidents was not at fault.
But as two teams from the NTSB sift through the evidence gathered from the fiery crash site, Tesla said in a blog post published Tuesday night that it hasn't been able to analyze any of the data collected from the scene - and therefore doesn't yet know what caused the crash - because the car was so badly damaged, as Bloomberg pointed out.
Interest in the effectiveness of self-driving technologies is elevated thanks to a deadly Uber Technologies Inc. That accident is believed to be the first fatality involving an autonomous vehicle.
Tesla owners have driven the same highway stretch with Autopilot engaged about 85, times since the system was introduced, and no accidents have been reported that the company is aware of, the carmaker said.
The NTSB is investigating whether autopilot was involved in the crash and is also looking into techniques for safely removing smouldering battery components from electric vehicles.
Tesla said its battery packs are designed so that when a fire occurs, it spreads slowly so people have more time to exit the car. The post also showed photos of the concrete divider that the Model X hit.
In days prior to the crash, a long metal barrier that extended out of the concrete divider, a barrier meant to absorb the impact of a crash before a driver hit concrete, had been present - but was removed some time before the fatal crash.
A Tesla driver was killed in a Florida accident in when his vehicle, which was in Autopilot mode, failed to detect a truck cutting across his path.
The NTSB also investigated that accident, and concluded that the driver should have been monitoring the car's progress as the system indicates. But Tesla's problems aren't limited to the crash investigation. Like the Cambridge Analytica scandal and its impact on Facebook, this crash has merely served to draw attention to Tesla's chronic inability to hit its production goals.
Musk is well behind on the company's delivery targets for its Model 3 - what was supposed to be the crossover vehicle to bring electric vehicles to the middle-income market. Since its inception, Tesla has burned cash at an alarming rate, and if the business doesn't find a way John Thompson of Vistas Capital Management told MarketWatch that, unless Elon Musk "pulls a rabbit out of his hat" the company could be bankrupt within four months.
Thompson sense the core of the problem for Musk. That his company's lofty share price has been built almost entirely on marketing - "the narrative", as Thompson describes it.
But there's only so much failure shareholders can countenance before even the gullible start asking questions.
