Tesla suffered a record decline in auto deliveries in the first quarter of 2019, raising fears that demand is waning for its electric vehicles.

Lately, Musk hasn't had the best of public favor, landing into several controversies but maybe he can redeem himself as an artist. A few hours later, he backtracked slightly, saying he meant Tesla would be manufacturing about 125,000 cars per quarter by the end of this year, a pace that would translate into 500,000 vehicles annually.

There's maybe only one thing that makes being ruled over by a technocracy of uber-rich venture capitalist goons somewhat tolerable, and that's the fact that most of said goons appear to have late-stage brain worms.

Shipping cars to customers outside the United States was critical toward helping make up slack in demand after the federal tax credit Tesla customers were eligible for was cut in half as of January 1. This caused a large number of vehicle deliveries to shift to the second quarter.

Of course, Tesla is playing it as something of a positive. We are doing everything we can to deliver cars globally as quickly as possible and look forward to continuing to scale deliveries throughout the year.

Tesla itself admits that the net income will be negatively impacted, which isn't exactly a great way to start the quarter.

Despite the delivery challenges Tesla said it had "sufficient cash on hand".

More impressive, however, is the company's optimism at the year's overall guidance.
