Short seller Fahmi Quadir, who’s betting against Tesla Inc., said the carmaker faces risks to its supply chain because some vendors haven’t been getting paid.

Quadir, the founder and chief investment officer of Safkhet Capital LP, made a name for herself by shorting the drugmaker formerly known as Valeant Pharmaceuticals around its peak in 2015. She said her firm sees some suppliers to Tesla filing for bankruptcy, which poses particular risk to the carmaker because many of its components are single-sourced.
