    The purpose of this Wiki post is to track the various parts of the factory at Fremont, when each section was known to have been last updated, and what the estimated production rate (ideally a weekly rate) for that section of the factory is able to run at.

    This was started as an idea to help track the progress of the factory in its current state. I tried to seed the initial page with details as I had them off the top of my head, but feel free to correct the inputs to whatever might be more accurate eventually it would be helpful to have a posted source of where that information came from such that anyone can validate it to be the most current statement from the company. I would prefer a posted source to be some statement directly from the company through an official channel. Like a direct quote or video comment from someone with authority in the company. Not some analyst speculation as to the rates of the factory or timelines (as certain analysts like to embellish the truth a little at times... *cough* Trip Chowdhry *cough*)
