Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) fell short of its target 100,000 deliveries

he news last week Tesla Inc. fell short of its target 100,000 deliveries for the third quarter of the year is giving birth to dire predictions about the future of the world’s largest maker of electric vehicles (EVs).

The direst by far was made public Sunday by Scott Galloway, a Professor of Marketing at NYU Stern School of Business, who was named “One of the World’s 50 Best Business School Professors” in 2012. Galloway teaches Brand Strategy and Digital Marketing to second-year MBA students and is the author of the Digital IQ Index, a global ranking of prestige brands’ digital competence.

Galloway also predicted Amazon would buy Whole Foods before this acquisition occurred in August 2017.

Galloway raised the hackles of Tesla fanboys anew on Sunday — and ignited a furious twitter storm bashing him — by predicting either the demise of Tesla or the loss by Tesla of 80 percent of its value by the next decade.

The reason: Tesla simply doesn’t have the scale to compete in a “well-run, low-margin” segment in the auto industry. Simply put, Galloway contends Tesla will never be able to mass produce and deliver enough of its EVs to become profitable — ever.
