Tesla is facing new challenges to its lofty mission to change the auto industry. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration opened an inquiry into a fatal accident that occurred while a Tesla Model S was in autopilot mode.

On Sunday, Tesla said it missed its second quarter production targets, meaning it is unlikely to make its full-year goal. Meanwhile, Facebook is facing problems in Israel, where Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan alleged it is not doing enough to remove hateful posts that Erdan said may incite violence.
