14-50 outlet and 40' distance

The Tesla Wall Connectors will do up to 48A,
This part is true. It is a possible capability.
and need larger diameter wiring (4AWG) and a 60A breaker instead of 50A.
This part is not true.

The wall connectors are variable configuration devices. They are designed to be installed on various levels of circuits. If you are installing it on a 30A circuit, it does not "need" or require using thicker gauge wire than a 14-50 outlet on a 50A circuit.

A Lamborghini has the capability of going at a higher speed than a Corolla. That does not mean it must always be driven that way.

I have my 14-50 on the left wall next to the breaker box... I used bungie cords to suspend the cable over the tops of the cars... When I do this, the charger can reach my car parked in the middle stall. So without any extension cords, I can reach the adjacent two cars from the charger. IF you need to traverse further than that, you'll either need to move the outlet, or use a 50A RV extension cord.
