Tesla Has Mounting Concerns

According to Venture Beat, “The latest warnings follow the company’s troubled production of its Model 3, an issue that has raised questions about its ability to hit its targets this year. But beyond just hitting financial expectations, ratings agency Moody’s issued a grim downgrade this week, saying the company is going to have to raise $2 billion in the coming months.”

Pulling that  off will likely depend on Tesla proving it can hit its lowered Model 3 production targets for this quarter and the next.
