Earnings Outlook: Tesla earnings: Will Model 3 live up to the hype?

Tesla Inc. is scheduled to report second-quarter results after the market close on Aug. 2.

Wall Street expects another loss for Silicon Valley company, but that is unlikely to matter much. The real burning questions are the ones about the Model 3.

That’s the mass-market sedan at the center of Tesla’s expansion plans, a $35,000 all-electric car the company hopes will smooth its path to becoming a larger car maker.

Tesla TSLA, +0.18% has said it would deliver the first handful of Model 3 sedans in July, and Chief Executive Elon Musk early Friday posted a short video on Instagram showing preparations for the launch party late Friday.
