Tesla Inc. (TSLA) - Get Tesla Inc Report may have had a good day on Monday, July 2, but things have taken a turn for the worse.

Business Insider UK reported on Tuesday that Tesla engineers didn't run critical braking and rolling tests because of the push to hit the 5,000 production target. A reporter was able to get a document that it claimed came from the Fremont, Calif., Tesla factory.

"Every car we build goes through rigorous quality checks and must meet exacting specifications, including brake tests. To be extremely clear, we drive every Model 3 on our test track to verify braking, torque, squeal and rattle. There are no exceptions," said a Tesla spokesperson in an email to TheStreet.

Analysts remain unconvinced about Tesla, despite it beating its production target on the Model 3.

Will Tesla actually hit its $500 run at this rate? Are bullish analysts wrong?

Is that enough reading for you to get through July 4?

Enjoy the holiday.
