    Very cool.. Love how this guy just comes at everything head-on. The look inside the M3 factory will be interesting.

    Might have to be a bit late to work tomorrow ;)

    It's interesting that some folks see Musk's sleeping on the factory floor as "...making everyone nervous to have the CEO on the front lines...". Personally, I agree with his assertion that it shows he is committed to his employees and leading by example.

    That's the kind of thing that result in a union . No one should be working that many hours that they need to sleep there. If management is trying to set that kind of example they should get organized.

    That’s not what he meant. As whoever the woman said at the end of the segment - “he’s there to solve problems as they arise”.

    I would volunteer my time for free if given an invitation to sleep on the factory floor -- for a day or two ;).

    As I recall, he did this for the X also. Fixed the problems and still no unions.

    I think Musk is more of a hands on engineer than a Six Sigma black belt. The style has worked thus far, and besides how do you delegate this? "Hello Peter, what's happening? Listen, are you gonna have those TPS reports for us this afternoon? Oh, and by the way I'm also going to need you to come in on Sunday too and build and alien dreadnought factory for me."

    Will he be sleeping in the CPO car section as well? Lots of problems there to solve.

    Don't even start on the mini-M3 shortages.

    He should not need to do it; partly he does it for publicity. Partly to set an example and to contrast other CEOs. Then again, on his income I would sleep anywhere. I have actually slept at work but that was only for a few hours whilst waiting for stuff to happen at 3am.

    Business up front, sleepover in the back.

    There's probably a hairstyle that goes with that too.

    Yep, I was tuned in and they ran another promo saying airing tomorrow. I presume because they had to squeeze in an 'exclusive' interview with Paul Ryan. So they bumped the interview run. Since the same reporter is doing the Paul Ryan interview. Just a guess..

    Yeah, like who's contribution to society is more important.
    Paul Ryan will be a footnote in the history books, Elon Musk will be an entire chapter.

    Raleigh NC has quite a few Model 3,s coming in and that is a good thing. I think Elon has a geat company and he took on a great company with great ideas. Electric cars will be the thing of te future and he has a great charging network Who else is producing an affordable eletric car?

    Yes the segment on the production line is being aired on Friday. However they did run the segment discussing the production issues this morning. I don't see today's segment on CBS' site but you can watch the video on Youtube:



    It's sad the media/analysts keep the focus on the past and not where things are now and will be immediately down the road. I'm sure reservation holders and investors would have rather heard about that than what we all know already. A shot of the parking lot filled with cars and trailers loading them, like we see here on the forum, would be nice. Wonder if that will be on tomorrow's segment.

    More like the SHORTS. When a stock is as highly shorted as TSLA, negative stories will absolutely make their way into the main stream media, some more innocently than others.

    Yeah Apple use to be their favorite stock to short until Telsa came along. I get the analysts motivation but don't see it there for the media's. Why write/broadcast the same old rehashed dribble and instead why not look for a new angle to report. You'd think 400,000+ interested people out there would want to hear something new.
