Musk is playing with fire by buying coinz while negative business developments for Tesla vehicles roll in. I'm sure it's popular with the nerdy meme traders, but for institutional investors it's hard not to notice that he's putting capital into emitting more carbon while the legacy OEMs are pouring money into R&D and developing competing models

The EVs hitting the market now are getting good reviews. I think a lot of Tesla buyers are going to want something that looks new/different from the more established luxury brands with more cachet:

According to Audi head of design Marc Lichte, the 2022 e-tron GT is the best-looking vehicle he's ever designed. We tend to agree and would go so far as to say it's one of the best-looking EVs out there. It's a vehicle that, regardless of powertrain, would be welcome in the garage of the type of driver who wants to sit behind the wheel of something beautiful. One look and it's clearly an Audi. Except that underneath, it's also a Porsche.
Meanwhile, Tesla's range stats are consistently inaccurate. There are any number of powder kegs under his business that would be like the VW scandal (Dieselgate): exaggerated ranges, fake full self driving, and warranty problems from the poor build quality.
