Tank Slapping Tesla Veers Back Into Retail.... For Now

Yeah, I know... the title is a head-scratcher to many of you. A tank slapper is defined by motorcyclists as a type of control problem wherein the bike shakes violently back and forth, also known as a "death wobble." It can happen to cars too, where bad driving (or impacts) result in a sudden or violent oscillation of the fuel load. Typically drivers will repeatedly over-correct the skid in these situations until the sloshing subsides or they completely lose control.

It seems an appropriate metaphor for the recent developments at Tesla, ironically, as the company seems unable to just pick a direction and stick to it.
