Tesla overcame logistics problems to set a quarterly record for deliveries from April through June. Now Wall Street is focusing on whether it will translate into profits.
    
The electric car and solar panel company said it handed over 95,200 vehicles to customers worldwide, breaking the previous record of 90,700 set in the fourth quarter of last year.
    
The company rebounded from a dismal first quarter when it delivered only 63,000 of its Model S, X and 3 vehicles, a 31% drop from last year's fourth quarter.
