This topic was part of the “How many P-cars before first Sig for Europe?” thread, but the discussion has shifted to the question above, so I thought it would make sense to open a poll on that. Before you decide, please read the following arguments: Lets say they have two reservations: a) European Sig. Model S, 40k$ (=liability to reservation holder), Price: 95k$ b) U.S. general production P85, 5k$ (=liability to reservation holder), Price: 90k$ Depending on what reservation Tesla will fulfill first different things happen: a) Tesla manufactures/delivers the European Sig. reservation first: - Tesla will get an additional 55k$ in cash (they already have 40k$) - Tesla will recognize 95k$ as additional revenue b) Tesla manufactures/delivers the U.S. P-P85-car reservation first: - Tesla will get an additional 85k$ in cash (they already have 5k$) - Tesla will recognize 90k$ as additional revenue What this means is that if Tesla wants to have more money in their bank accounts, which they can use to pay bills and wages, then they probably will try fulfill the U.S. P-P85-Reservation first. This could mean, that Tesla could stall homologation / manufacturing for foreign markets to get their hands at more cash faster. If their goal is to get as much revenue as fast as possible and they are satisfied with their cash situation, they would probably not try to delay foreign deliveries as long as possible. So what do you think; Is Tesla stalling foreign homologation/deliveries to get more cash faster?
