Tesla Reports Record $717.5 Million Net Loss in Second Quarter

2019 Jaguar I Pace S

Bannon said that when he joined Tesla, employees considered many options, including Nvidia graphics cards, and said they talked with people at Arm, whose technology is used in chips from Qualcomm (QCOM) and other companies. Analysts have questioned whether the 5,000 rate would be sustainable. This high-grading of the backlog combined with the reduction in the government subsidy by early next year, new product delays and the emergence of viable competition for the Models S and X means that 2019 should be a very challenging year for TSLA.

The Fremont factory is expected to build approximately 50,000-55,000 Model 3s in Q3. In the past year, Tesla has come under scrutiny for its factory conditions, auto production, treatment of employees, odd cost cutting measures, and CEO Elon Musk's fitful interactions with critics.

We reported on what was perhaps the most weird twist in all the saga, the overnight installation of a massive production tent located on the factory's parking lot overnight installation of a massive production tent located on the factory's parking.

Investors have been eager to see Tesla's latest financial results, with the automaker under growing pressure to meet production and profitability targets.

And, Q2 figures were still an improvement from the $1.05 billion loss in Q1.

Musk then put his signature optimism on display, saying it was Tesla's goal "to be profitable and cash-flow positive in every quarter going forward".

The company last quarter cut its spending forecasts and Tesla has begun to lay off 9 per cent of its workforce. Tesla projected total 2018 capital spending at just below $2.5 billion. Tesla still hasn't made any $35,000 base model cars available. The stock was down 3.4 per cent through Wednesday's session.

Tesla has burnt through less cash than in previous quarters. His first question came from Bernstein's A.M. (Toni) Sacconaghi, an analyst he butted heads with during the first-quarter conference call. But its cash burn rate was less than investors expected, and the company had $2.2 billion in cash at the end of the quarter.

I'd like to apologize for being impolite on the prior call.

Musk attributed his intemperate remarks this spring to the long work weeks at Tesla and a lack of sleep, while adding that "there's still no excuse for it".

Excluding items, Tesla reported a loss of $2.45 per share, compared with expectations of a loss of $2.92.

Tesla shares were up over 8 percent at $325.30 in after-market trading on Wednesday.

Tesla stock climbed as much as 5.7 per cent to US$317.95 as of 5 p.m.in NY.
