I'm betting Elon Musk's ego eventually destroys the company, like so many other brilliant but petulant entrepreneurs I have seen before.
Tech version of stagflation = techflation

Stagflation = inflation & unemployment too high combined with too low growth

Tesla Techflation = valuation inflation & platform refresh costs too high combined with too low growth in auto sector

They're caught in the deadzone
