  • Every year Ford, GM, and Toyota have recalls over power steering, traction and product defects. It’s almost routine that recalls are leaked to minimize liability once discovered with counsel. Yes, TQM and 6S minimize the need for a recall. To what extent is a recall BAU for Tesla to aware its users

Yes, TQM and 6S minimize the need for a recall. To what extent is a recall BAU for Tesla to aware its users, before Consumer Reports or Investigative journalism raises the concern? This is a classic case of Tesla being accountable in advance for a public disclosure.

    The bad news keeps coming for Tesla. Absent a positive surprise in their Q1 production numbers, Tesla's ability to raise capital in the future to service near term debt maturities threatens to become severely constrained.

    Tesla is finding out this week that auto manufacturing is not so easy and that not everything can be solved with tech and growth at all costs. Operational efficiency and scalability of physical products is much harder than software. Elon has been a tech princeling and if anyone can solve it, it probably will be him. Lots of tech hubris is being humbled recently, rightly so in my opinion in many cases. See Shyp’s shutdown this week after raising over $60m in vc funding
