A Huge Week for Tesla Motors

Most start-ups dream of a week like the one Tesla Motors (NASDAQ: TSLA  ) just had. Late on Wednesday, the company reported its first-ever quarterly profit -- and sent its shares soaring. Then on Thursday, Consumer Reports anointed its Model S as equal to the best cars it had ever tested, an immense seal of approval for the company's innovative new ride.

In this video, Fool.com contributor John Rosevear takes a closer look at Tesla's latest earnings report -- and at the feisty electric-car maker's prospects for the rest of 2013 and beyond.

Tesla's execution so far has been nearly faultless. But the road ahead remains a hard one. Despite all of the company's progress, a looming question remains: Will Tesla be able to fend off its big-name competitors when -- not if -- they enter this market? The Motley Fool answers this question and more in our most in-depth Tesla research available.

    Usual lack of insight from motley fool. Reiteration of what everyone always knows by people who should think more deeply about what they do.
