    Ordering 500K windsheilds?.
    Unloading 2 million ( 500K x4 ) tires?
    Building an additional 2 zillion square feet of Giga Factory?
    Mining for lithium for the batteries?

    Well,
    -They updated the summon feature to prevent morons from ramming their car into trucks
    -They were just upgraded by Goldman Sachs so we might see more investment.
    -They making sure there's no more foreign worker issues with their contractors.
    -They are seeking out the best battery deals with other suppliers like LG Chem etc
    -They are in the process of correctly some Canadian pricing issues.

    Final design isn't due until the end of June, I doubt they'd order anything of importance before that.

    Yeah, June 30th this year... No idea about the second reveal but they'd probably hold off as long as possible to keep competitors on their toes.

    My guess is early next year but I have no idea.

    That would be a great birthday present. June 30th is my birthday.

    I hope Tesla is as serious about getting M3's out there as we are about receiving them.

    I would think Tesla are really going for it. When you consider that Nissan, BMW, VW, Ford, and many others (Future Faraday and Apple eventually), are already pushing the various BEV and PHEV versions of their mainstream cars, we won't have to wait long.

    I think it is a very specific way of asking the general question: "Where is Tesla on the development/production of the Model 3?"
