Elon Musk denies sacking staffer in pay row

Tesla raising cash in push to get Model 3 to masses

Tesla seeks $1.5 bn junk bond issue to fund Model 3 production

So here's the preposition - Tesla is hoping its new Model 3, launched in July as its least pricey auto, would propel it towards profitable, high-volume vehicle manufacturing.

Referring to Elon Musk's analogy from a few days ago after 60.000 reservation holders decided they couldn't wait that long for a Model 3, Calacanis said that "this is a Wagyu hamburger at a Shake Shack price".

The Gold Coast Bulletin reported this week it received a text message claiming an unnamed athlete has spent "many nights" at the actress' Gold Coast address as she continues to film Aquaman Down Under.

A spokesperson for Tesla said the bonds will have to be repaid to investors in eight years, but the interest rate on offer has not yet been agreed upon.

He added that all new Model S, X, and 3 vehicles ordered today will be delivered with the new hardware suite, and promised to upgrade any current HW 2.0-equipped Tesla on the road today with HW 2.5 if full autonomy is unachievable.

On a conference call with financial analysts to discuss a new bond offering, CEO Elon Musk verified that the battery capacities for the two versions of the Model 3 are about 50 kWh and 75 kWh.

Moody's assigned a B2 rating with a stable outlook.

All in all, it is delays all around Tesla's camp.

Tesla has revealed little about the Model Y. The company says it will arrive in 2019 or 2020, although the date is apparently not firm.

It's not just Tesla cars that are inspiring American parents either.

Meanwhile, the company is burning cash at a rapid rate. At around $35,000, it's hard to make an argument for the Chevy Bolt or BMW i3 over the Model 3. Musk would likely be out, and the army of employees with a shared mission would be leaderless. We expect the company to raise more money to build a new production facility in 2020, as well as Gigafactories 3,4, and 5.

Tesla's cash burn has prompted short-sellers like Greenlight Capital's David Einhorn to bet against the Palo Alto, California company.

Goldman Sachs acted as left lead, while Morgan Stanley, Bank of America, Citigroup, Deutsche Bank and RBC came in as bookrunners.

Shares of Tesla closed down 0.5 percent at $355.17 on Monday.
