$TSLA - 1/*Wow* It's been a full year since I wrote this.

Back then, Tesla stock price closed at $352 on June 19th 2018.

Elon, coming off a disastrous Q1, was hell bent on producing 5K / week of the model 3's.

And I was not fully Q.

2/The world was introduced to the tent by @skabooshka back in June 16th of 2018.

At the time, production was the most important story surrounding the company, and the public/market had only opaque insight into what Tesla was capable of.

3/@skabooshka discovered and documented the manufacture of an ad-hoc tent facility, contradicting Elon's claim that its fully automated factory would allow the company to achieve world-class margins.

Embarrassed by this, Elon then faked this build:

4/Unfortunately, discovery of this tent and attached tweets put @skabooshka on Elon's radar. This put him and his family on Elon's perceived "threat" list. And we know that this story is not over.

Back to the tent.

5/Why did the tent make me go full Q?

Because it told me everything i needed to know about Elon. The tent represented to me that Elon was and is still willing to risk the lives of his employee's, his customers, to put out a shoddy and unsafe product.

6/Employee Safety: As @pac_watson knew, @elonmusk does not care about employee safety. Tesla Fremont factory was extremely unsafe. Actually, it's the worse car factory in the US.

Tesla has more OSHA fines than 10 other factories combined!

7/Vehicle Quality:

@Trumpery45 has an exhaustive lists of quality complaints on TMC and Twitter about terrible build quality of Tesla's model 3. Losing Consumer's reports recommendation was not news to $TSLAQ.

Just search #teslaqualityissues

8/Vehicle Reliability:

Every time a customer gets into their Tesla's, it's like playing Russiona Roulette: Your vehicle may be fine or the screen may freeze (rendering your vehicle inoperable) or it may blowup after super charging.

9/Customer Safety:

And most importantly, why did I go full Q? Because @elonmusk does not care about customer safety. He and @karpathy will continue to push out a shoddy product and people have died. Customer's are just "corner cases"
