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, -2.73%   has said it would deliver the first handful of Model 3 sedans in July, and Chief Executive Elon Musk confirmed that timeline earlier this month. With a few days remaining in the month, and a stock that has wobbled in recent weeks, all eyes will be on the Model 3.
