Uninvestable Tesla

Tesla is an uninvestable stock for me, not just because of its high valuation but also because it fails our fairly basic quality test, which I shamelessly borrowed from Warren Buffett: Would I still buy this stock if right after the purchase the stock market were to close for ten years?

There Is Just One Thing Preventing Elon Musk’s Vision From Coming True: The Laws Of Physics
