The analysts need to change the story since selling 35,000 cars in 2014 won't cut it. GM sells 26,000 cars per day and Tesla will sell 35,000 in a year. So lets change the story that Tesla will be a Electric utility without absolutely zero facts and projections out to 2028. Amazing

I read the report that Panasonic will put in $1 billion or 20% of the estimated cost and there will be several other partners. So lets assume the others will put in another 30% and Tesla puts in the other $2.5 billion or 50%. Why would Tesla get 85% of the profits per your calculations ? What is the net profit margin on the $3 billion of sales ?
