Anyone else worried about getting a car being made this week?

So with the crazy push I'm sure Tesla is making to minimize the end of Q1 weekly production rate shortage, I suspect that quality is suffering on the cars being made right now and through the weekend. My car is configured and I am waiting for the VIN, but as impatient as I have been I really hope that my car is made after this week's push.... Anyone else feel like this?

That is similar to the "I don't want a car made on a Friday" or "I don't want a car made by 3rd shift" argument.

While these arguments stem from legitimate concerns, I haven't seen a single factual piece of information that indicates that a car made at a particular time/day/event is built worse than any other one.

Ultimately the car is going to get QC checked at the factory before it is loaded for transport, and any glaring problems get fixed then. If the car somehow arrives at the Tesla delivery center still in need of rework then the delivery center would hold the car for delivery until that stuff got sorted out or work out some kind of arrangement with the soon to be new owner.
 
I was thinking the exact same thing. I would definitely not want a car built this week. It seems like there is a lot of variation in build quality and it sounds like they're trying to double the production rate this week. Who would want a car assembled at a service center? There's only so much they can do.
I agree that the whole Friday thing is probably a myth but it is a fact that they're trying to do a massive increase in production this week. Does anyone really believe that they would pushing like this if it wasn't the last week of the quarter?
