    I've read that this is $920M (not $800M), and that the holder has a conversion option that begins 12/1/18 and runs into 3/19.
    If the stock price gets above $360 in December (onward), I'm curious to see whether having ~$920M of new stock issued (and to a great extent, sold) results in downward pressure on the stock price.
    Not to mention shorts may intentionally push the price below $360 to prevent Tesla from being able to have the market pay off the bonds rather than Tesla having to do so with company cash.
    The stock price will be fascinating to watch from December into March, if it is hovering around $360.
    I suspect we will see very strong Q4 volumes and financials reported, and then the usual splashy Model Y reveal in mid-March to help Tesla try to get the stock price comfortably higher than $360 so that the shorts can't manipulate it below $360 before the convertible bonds have to be redeemed.

    Elon Musk wants to achieve 7,000 Model 3 vehicles per week by the end of Nov, which means they will probably get it done by the end of December. That said, most of your nearer-term milestones seem quite accurate to me, whereas the ones a few years out I see very differently. For example, in my view there is no way that Tesla will start producing the pick-up truck in 2020. It would already be a great sign of strength if they start volume production of the previously announced Tesla Semi and Tesla Roadster 2.0 as well as Model Y.

    My version of the bull-case scenario:

    End of 2018
    • Appointment of two new independent directors
    • 7,000 Model 3 vehicle per week run rate achieved by the end of the year
    Q1 2019
    • Q418 vehicle production & deliveries announcement, around 100k for both
    • International rollout of Model 3, initially in Europe and China
    • Supercharger v3 starts to rollout
    • Q4 Earnings & Call, profitable and positive cashflow
    • Moody's upgrade following Q4 earnings as financial situation improves further
    • Model 3 SR orders start
    Q2 2019
    • Model 3 SR volume production
    • Further international rollout of Model 3, e.g. to rest of Asia Pacific
    • GF4 (Europe) announcement
    • Model Y unveil, possibly an update to Roadster SpaceX option package
    • Utility-scale battery Megapack announcement and rollout
    • New AI hardware built into all new cars and made available for upgrade
    • New production sites announced for US
    • Solar roof goes into volume production
    Q3 2019
    • As Model 3 ramp completes, margins approaching 25% despite declining ASP
    • New Model S/X interiors following Model 3 ramp
    • Major improvements to in-car entertainment, such as karaoke, games, movies etc.
    • Low-volume production of Tesla Semi begins
    • TSLA will be added to the S&P 500 index
    Q4 2019
    • Production and deliveries of more than 450k vehicles in 2019
    • More than $30B in revenue for 2019
    • Analyst upgrades following multiple positive earnings, excitement about new products, and reductions in cap-ex vs. Model 3
    • Full self-driving demo
    2020
    • Tesla Network details announced, rollout according to autonomous driving legislation
    • Volume production of Tesla Semi, about 20,000 for the year with a four-year ramp to 100,000 units
    • Roadster 2.0 goes into production, maybe 5,000 units per year
    • Model Y production starts, demand similar to Model 3 or higher (almost 1 million units per year) with a three-year ramp
    • Next-level Tesla Pick-up truck will be unveiled
    • Massive reductions in cost per kWh, <100$ at the pack-level, zero cobalt
    2021
    • Production and deliveries of at least 700k vehicles in 2020
    • Tesla compact car unveiled
    • Pick-up truck enters production
    • Model S/X get overhauled with 2170 batteries and redesign, volume increased to 120-130k
    • Company should be valued at $150B on improving fundamentals alone
    • It will finally be clear to almost anyone that Elon Musk is the real deal, SpaceX, the Boring Company and Neuralink will help
    2022 and beyond
    • Tesla will be the best manufacturer on the planet by far, Alien Dreadnought will finally become real
    • It no longer seems unrealistic that Tesla one day will operate between 10-12 factories around the world, with an output of more than five million cars sometime after 2025, with revenues from automotive vehicles alone approaching a quarter of a trillion dollars
    • Tesla Energy will finally live up to its expectations and revenues after 2025 will exceed $100B
    • The company could be valued at $500B or $1 trillion sometime after 2025
    • A large number of TMC forum members will probably end up becoming millionaires between now and 2030 (if they aren't already)

    Not on my watch. I think it would be wrong to go down that route. Tesla have most of the IP. Keep Pana honest - Samsung already used for TE. Capitalise on very likely game changing technology improvements in the future from various companies (Graphene will happen eventually - I am Buckminster after all). In addition, battery supply from other local companies will be beneficial to getting good GF deals.
