Tesla's rally to over $1,000 per share may show that the market is forgetting about the difficulties of running a car company, leaving investors at risk of a big pullback, Morgan Stanley said in a new note.

Analyst Adam Jonas said in a note to clients on Tuesday that, while he understands the potential that others see, it is hard to envision Tesla justifying its high price over the next decade.
