The Model 3 exists, but I agree the pricing is the big question. Tesla will have to reign in Musk, and keep it simple and inexpensive and that wont be easy. No hard to manufacture doors, and the bells and whistles will need to be options.
On Insideevs you'll see coverage of the Apple Titan program which includes a pic and mention of the proving grounds.
Apple is gearing up quickly on this project, will be interesting to watch!
Hey, flux capacitors are hard to make, you have to expect delays.
I'm waiting for the tweet where they've got billions in no money reservations! Too funny!
... and then of course powdy will say they're orders!
I think Yahoo went out of business and forgot to close down the mb.
I'd like to see more commitment from a billionaire.
It was good except for missing on revenues. Popped big time, but will probably be down some next week.
Had some order news, but may have gotten a bit ahead of itself pricewise?
I'm not saying I would short them up around $30, but I would not add to position here either.
By September 30th, so may even be a littler earlier.
This should give Tesla a little boost.
... but still a lot of issues to be resolved.
Good point, some discussion on TMC forums about repairs after minor accidents.
Very laborious trying to get the Model S doors right, and they're conventional.
BYD would be my last guess for a JV.
Tesla has nothing BYD needs or wants.
Others with less resources, possibly.
Next catalyst is the release of the Model X, with years of pent up demand it will
at least get some market attention.
But Tesla will have the capability of producing 2500 cars a week. Demand is not there. Tesla is not production constrained.
Another hiccup, or a sign of whats to come. I think we're seeing slowing demand, partly due to saturation, low oil prices, strong dollar and competition that will not be stopped.
I think the problem is, if demand was "off the hook" as Elon has said, why are they guiding downward?
If the demand is there, why is there no profit for the next five or ten years?
Why was price effectively lowered?
