    Can’t wait to see how that helps with revenue when every P3 made is a P3 sold.

    Time to cover my short?

    Normally a covered call is a conservative way to take some money off the table but I feel very vulnerable going into Monday.

    I guess I’m half way paid to PM3 not by timing choice!

    This looks like a mostly manual line. It makes sense to start producing the high margin vehicles here but I wonder how many cars this small line can produce per day. It's definitely can't be compared to the existing lines. It also seems like it could be a tough place to work a shift if the heat picks up in Fremont, CA since it's outside. Anyone with some auto manufacturing experience care to make a more educated guess than me? 25? 50? 100? (Cars a day)

    So if you order a P3D it will be ‘hand built’ on a ‘mostly manual line’ as opposed to mostly robots on one of the other original lines? Since this is in a ‘tent’ and not the factory?

    I don’t know anyone knows that. If you do, PM me and I’ll place “bets accordingly”.

    Generous commission of course. ;)
