Tesla shares rise 17% after Elon Musk settles with SEC

Averaged monthly, Tesla's official sales numbers confirm those results, with the Model 3 trailing the Toyota Corolla by about 7,500 cars per month.

Later that month, Musk announced that Tesla would remain a public company. Many of these have been discovered and photographed by groups of Tesla enthusiasts and skeptics online who wish to know more about the company's operations.

Musk worked almost to exhaustion to keep that momentum going during the past quarter. Some worry the parked cars represent an overflow of vehicles Tesla has produced that it doesn't have enough customers for; Business Insider noted in July there was talk of Model 3 pre-order cancellations. This added significant complexity, but we successfully executed this transition and ultimately produced more dual motor than rear wheel drive cars in Q3. "It's sort of this insane carnival".

Tesla has said it will deliver about 100,000 Model S and X vehicles in 2018. That's slightly better than its second-quarter performance and in line with its full-year guidance.

Indeed, the controversies abound for Tesla.

The electric vehicle maker's shares sank last week after the US Securities and Exchange Commission accused Musk of securities fraud, opening up the prospect of a long fight that could have seen Tesla lose its leader, and undermined its ability to raise capital and increase production. "Funding secured." Later on, the SEC ruled that Musk never went through with his declaration and deal between the company and the Saudi sovereign wealth fund set to foot the bill on the buyout. Both have agreed to settle these terms without confirming or denying the allegations, leaving Musk $20 million out of pocket and required to step down as Tesla's chairman.

Kavanaugh, President Trump's controversial pick for the open Supreme court seat, has been battling allegations of sexual assault. Democrats on Monday expressed concern over Kavanaugh's statements about his activities and his alcohol consumption in school.

The move brings a conclusion to the SEC fraud charges over his infamous "funding secured" tweet. In an email over the weekend, he told employees, "We are very close to achieving profitability and proving the naysayers wrong". Following the tweet, Tesla's stock jumped 6 percent leading to intervention by the SEC.

Musk recently stated that the company was in "delivery logistics hell", a problem which he attributed to the lack of trucks to transport newly purchased cars around the country. Now investors are waiting to see if the company can meet its other third-quarter goal: profitability.

Tesla said it delivered 83,500 vehicles in the quarter - 80% more than its total in 2017. Irate Tesla consumers are posting on social media about infinite delays and delivery dates that keep moving.

A tweet can be worth a thousand words, or in Elon Musk's case, millions of dollars.

It is increasingly hard to make sense of Tesla's math. "Should be solved shortly".
