Tesla receives massive shipment of robots for Model 3 production line – first pictures It's less than 3 months from the start of production and they're just now receiving a bunch of the equipment? Wow. I don't mean to be negative, but the probability that they're running any actual production in 3 months is pretty much zero. That place has to be a complete madhouse right about now. At best they'll be getting a small number of mostly hand-built cars out, using "production" tooling.
