But, when looking to the future, what gets investors excited?
Rob Maurer, host of Tesla Daily, joined TheStreet to discuss what he's excited about when it comes to Tesla.
"The level of ambition [of Tesla in comparison to Ford or GM], the pace at which they're trying to achieve some of these different things is very different. As each individual year goes by, I think that becomes more and more clear," Maurer said. He noted that the production and factories will ramp up in places such as Texas, Berlin, and Shanghai. In turn, that should bring capacity for two million-plus vehicles per year online in the next, probably, 18 months."
Maurer expressed excitement that Tesla has gone from being a small-scale automaker to being "one the largest automakers in the world."
