Sure but as I've posted here and elsewhere essentially this:
It kinda "helps" that Tesla bleeding $ all over the place, having lost over net $2 billion since it's been publicly reporting financials. As I've posted many time elsewhere before, as a Car and Driver column once stated, any car company can build a great car given a huge cost/budget, but when it has to be competitive and also be profitable, eventually, so there are compromises. (e.g. you can't sell a $100K Nissan Versa or a $10K Lamborghini).
I need to find to the time to put together a spreadsheet so that I have an accurate tally as to at how far into $2.x billion in losses they've incurred to this point.
