So, the parts are already there in GF, they just haven't finished assembly yet?
3/8/2018 around 8:30 am - lot is filling with s/x not 3’s
Wonder if while the 3 line was down for a 1-2 weeks period, they've shifted workers to produce s/x and hence lot usage.
I have a hunch they shifted 3 to the Northern side lot. Anyone willing to go to BART station and take picture from there?
Boston (Dedham, MA) delivery here. I was told the car was coming via rail and dropped off in New Jersey and from there, a truck would get it to Boston. So it sounds like there are a few rally points for the trains, depending on where the final destination is.
Good guess. Birmingham, AL is the main transportation hub for the whole southeast, servicing (basically) Nashville to Miami. If your car is going through Richmond, it’ll be on a different train.
With those new deliveries of batteries by the Tesla Semi yesterday and today from the Gigafactory I suspect we'll be seeing more Model 3s in the lot soon.
I'm sure they can fit a lot of batteries into a truck, but the 2 Tesla semi thing was more of a publicity stunt than anything. It probably only represents about 50 (maybe 100) cars worth of batteries.
The shipping wraps always make me laugh a little bit, it makes the cars looks like pandas (if they are black)
Publicity certainly yes. Stunt? Not if they are going to be semi-regularly running those trucks, as best they can as part of internal testing, which has been their plan.
Mmmmm, dog food is good!
@scaesare ran the numbers and came up with about 56 Model 3 packs per trailer. Tesla Semi
Once Fremont hits 5k/wk it will require 6 Semis full time each making 2 round trips a day, 7 days a week to supply the factory.
I was thinking the same thing.
Time for more pics! Thanks in advance
I barely got out of there without the various security entities chasing me. At least one of them had radio in hand as soon as he saw me. If I make pictures, it's sure to get back to them and cause them to unnecessarily spend money blocking off the access :/ I want neither of those things to happen (them unnecessarily spending money or blocking off the access).
On the other hand, if comprehensive detailed drone overflight videos continue, and that causes them to spend money on a parking lot roof (such as a tent of solar panels, or a tent, or solar panels that don't let elements through) to protect the cars from the elements, I'd think that's a type of improvement. I don't have any drones, so I can't go that route. I absolutely chime in, therefore, with the call for "more drone overflights!"
3/12/2018 around 7:15am - lot getting full again but it’s a mix of S/x/3’s - mostly looks like S and X though
I drove by there this morning at around 4AM on my way to work and saw at least two trucks loading up cars. So again these pictures are a good snapshot, but doesn't reflect activity flow....nevertheless, I like seeing the increased output!!!
Drove down to LA on Sat and back up on Sun, passed 2 car carriers on the way down and 3 headed down on the way back up, not a single Model 3 on those carriers...mostly Model S with 1-2 Model X per carrier.
These pictures aren't supposed to give you an accurate count of M3 production but clearly it showed the stoppage of production of M3's the last few weeks of February. Also earlier this year when production was around 1k/week, the lot filling with M3's and then emptying out could be captured by looking at the lot. They are now doing more construction on the lot for future expansion as now the eastern part of the lot is getting new fencing and employee cars have been kicked out.
Thanks for sharing with us.
Taken around noon time 3/12/2018 - long distance model 3 car carrier! And some covered car carriers as well - maybe that’s why seeing M3’s on the highway is rare?
