The battle over Tesla Motors (TSLA -0.5%) hums right along with analysis seemingly strong on both sides of the argument. Deutsche Bank highlights the pie-in-the-sky worries on the name by calling out 78% of its estimate for TSLA's net present value uses cash flows from 2020 and beyond, while Jefferies notes even modest forecasts for growth in the EV market point to steady revenue for Tesla in the future. Shares have settled into a narrow trading range over the last few weeks with visibility on Tesla's production numbers for 2013 still cloudy.
