Niedermeyer actually ended the Tesla Death Watch in 2009, which was started before he began writing for the outfit that ran it. He has been very circumspect in forecasting Tesla's demise ever since, and in fact often notes that one of the singular features of the Tesla story is the way they always seem to create (or be handed) a lifeline at their eleventh hour.

He has, of course written at times about how certain of Tesla's manufacturing practices, such as skipping factory acceptance testing, would cause them problems down the road, predictions which have largely come to pass.
