Won’t cost $TSLA a thing if not forced to re-call. Don’t count the chickens before they’re hatched.— Andreas Hopf (@Andreas_Hopf) August 14, 2019
Remember also that for most Branch Elonians, even a defective Tesla with service/repair weeks or months away is “The best car I ever owned!” because “I am helping the mission!”.
But this highlights the important reason why timing Tesla’s demise is impossible and why you have to stay short and be patient. There are predictable ways that could cause the bubble to pop (eg., a demand collapse manifest in 3Q), but there are also a thousand unpredictable ways:— Economic Man (@EconomicManBlog) August 15, 2019

For six years in a row, the Tesla DeathCult™ was wrong.
You don’t have to trade $TSLA from the short side. I traded it 15 times since 2013 from the long side. The thing is that there is meat on this mighty bone for every trader, long or short.
Andreas, you yourself wrote that Tesla was reaching terminal decline almost 2 years ago. You are almost the biggest bear there is. https://t.co/m4lwoqj9Jm— the Left Hand of Darkness (@NegDiscountRt) August 15, 2019
Indeed.$TSLA has been in terminal decline three times, ever since I began trading it in 2013. Last year, Elon Musk himself confirmed it; I pat myself on the back for that one ; )— Andreas Hopf (@Andreas_Hopf) August 15, 2019
However, as long as he can raise OPM or get governments to build him factories, the show goes on.
