Wow...wish I did. The tesla public media machine is productive. Bloomberg has turned into the tesla channel with a story every other day.
A year and a half ago I visited their engineering center. I spoke to a bunch of their team and wasn't impressed. To make a long story short I was repulsed. The people were over worked, the lab was a mess, nobody smiled. Turnover was high. The engineers seemed a little unrealistic with their expectations. The ones who wanted to be there just got there. Vets were long gone.
I walked out thinking I wouldn't touch the stock.
Wow did I have it wrong. I just keep watching this thing go up. I may have to modify my judgement process to catch a high flyer like this one. I rarely get the hockey stick stocks.
I'm looking at the wrong things.
I haven't and I'm not getting in here. If they stumble, even a little, this stock is probably pulling back. Of course, Musk seems very adept at running the company and playing Wall Street, so they may not stumble for a while.

This is not the impression I get. I haven't driven one, but I see one or two around the area from time to time. It looks incredibly well made, which could be an illusion. Though, the safety testing seems to confirm this to some extent.
I don't think it looks small. It isn't a BMW 7 series, but it's a little larger than a 3 series.
