We will see. I drove for 8 hours yesterday. Saw 1 ev all day. It's a big bet.
Shorting it is 50/50 from a stock will either continue to rise or fall back based on fundamental math finally catching up to it.

That being said I think it is ridiculously stupid to think Tesla won't be around in 10 years. A better argument will be they don't make cars anymore in 10 years. Strategically, they aren't a car company...they are an alternative energy and infrastructure/energy company that uses cars as a conduit to sell batteries. Musk is enough of a visionary and a smart guy to keep them from going belly up. I think they are a game changer and hope the OP saves this thread and comes back and posts in 10 years how he is wrong. I'll do the same if they file chapter 11.
