    Tesla cash flow ==== good and bad

    Tesla has finally run the factory at speed (more or less). Last quarter they burned about $100 million cash.

    Just for fun assume they produced 2,500 more vehicles in Q1 at 25% gross margin and it's all cash. That's $50 million cash flow into Tesla bringing the overall burn down to just $50 million.

    Cash saved by delaying the Model X is probably offset by the increased cash used by more stores, service centers. and the factory in the Netherlands.

    On the positive side Tesla may have gotten their bloated inventory down and that would help cash flow.
