The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which analyst Lyons George and editor and analyst Isaac Pino discuss topics across the investing world.

In the wake of a recent management shake-up, Lyons and Isaac discuss what's really going on -- and what the future might look like -- for Elon Musk and Tesla Motors. With everything riding on their move into manufacturing, Musk and company need to get a lot of mileage out of the forthcoming Model S if they ever want to compete with the big boys in Detroit.
