Car costs 35k. Cheaper than a Infiniti g35 Mercedes c class bmw 3 series and way cooler .
Tax cred is worth 100 a month
You either want the car or not . 100 bucks won't stop me . I own car at the end of day and their is no gas expense
I feel that Elon's expertise is making cool things and will make the product perfect. I don't think he's a good salesman or profit conscious enough.
I don't have to worry about sales because they are there. It's interesting that producing sales is
The issue the Number one issue when making a new product will it sell or not ? How many should I build ?
That major hurdle is in the past .
Next hurdle mass production .
I don't think profit will be an issue if the demand is high the labor costs /parts cost will average down. Any company that has a 400k order will be pricing around parts . It is known the larger the order to China the better the deal just need to make sure quality checks are in place . They should be able to capitalize on parts that are 20/30 percent less than what they were use to paying on model S . If some of the parts are universal between their 3 cars even better margin for S and X . Gigafactory will affect Teslas entire business 30 percent cheaper battery .
If they can get 44k average per model 3 after raw materials and assembly not averaging gigafactory and actual building plant just the cars themselves cost price to retail . They should be making at very worst 7000 to 10000 each
1 million cars. X 10 k = 10 billion before expenses
500k cars x 10 k = 5 billion
Whether you like it or not they will be making the billions as long as the sales are there In one year alone they can pay for the gigafactory and another add a facility in China .
I think they should keep it at one facility for at least 2 years before going nuts build some capital
I don't think they should rush and be pressured by wall street deadlines .
Slow and steady wins the race . I really feel it should be a owned by a bigger company to expedite and insure success.
I conclude I'm a buyer but there is risk I am willing to take because the sales are there. Once these puppies hit the road they will sell even more.
This could be huge . I copied and pasted from market watch . What category is apple looking to get in to fast ??
the market about things that could complement things that we do today, become features in something we do, or allow us to accelerate entry into a category that we’re excited about,” Cook said, adding later, “We would definitely buy something larger than we bought thus far.”
Not a religion , simple math 350,000 orders = CASH MONEY
I see a product/company that has the same hype as when the iPhone first came out .
There is nothing in the market that is so hot like this . Name me one ?
Load of BS Is what you just said . The stock hit 280 twice before This model 3 mega week
You want to tell me now that there are 350 k plus orders it shouldn't be 280 based on same hype if not the hype should be in super drive .
Maybe you wanted a million orders . Idk really what's wrong with you . I think even at a million orders same reaction. Heads stuck in the mud.
Tesla will have factories in China and one day a Chinese gigafactory. WHY NOT ? I Like that they do what's necessary and are always planting seeds . Elon himself has solar city space X he is the opposite of complacent and any extra product catigory he puts under teslas ownership example tesla power wall . He could have spun that in to his own personal company .
I wouldn't be surprised if a huge Chinese company or a foreign government offered to buy them out or take on a large stake.
You don't understand. The demand of 350 thousand cars in a week!
Do I have to say it 350 thousand times over ?
I would bet we are up to 480 thousand right now
If we get to 700k orders and 70 percent closing ratio that is one hell of a Revenue stat. This is not wishful thinking its a reality . By the time the car is ready to be shipped 2017 /18 they can have orders of 8 quarters of powerful sales.
Part two of model 3 will come out soon another free advertisement and a pop in orders .
I hate small minded anti-optimistic fools. You can never make money in stocks of you can't forcast being that you are nervious pu*** .
Tesla stock should be at 300 plus right now . Over 300,000 reservations is a good thing I don't know how the media spins it in to a negative .
They will make as many cars as they frekn can . They will max out what they can physically do. They aren't going to be sitting there waiting for sales.
This car is way simpler to build than a model X .
So many short institutions blasting a company that the masses love . I won't let them fear me in to selling and nether should you.
I will buy more . I believe in this company and 300 000 orders is no joke .
Their future is bright happy I'm part of it.
If they thought being able to make these cars was a problem them would stop taking preorders
I would predict almost 500 k sold after this weekend .
This stock deserves respect and positive attention. To me Tesla hit the jackpot and owning the stock should translate the same .
2 years is a good amount of time to start saving money . If they were smart they should let ppl start financing 35k from now . Lock them in to a base model agreement minimum and of course they can add features in a year from now which they will spend more money since they already started to pay it off . And they are the people that should get their car first!
