    Great news, I hope the guy doesn't get into trouble for posting that though - the tweet has already been taken down.

    Race to 5000 kinda reminds me of this Ron Howard film:

    I'm sure Gung Ho has been invoked more than a few times by Tesla employees over the last year. Personally, I wouldn't want to own a Model 3 manufacturing during one of the burst build periods.

    Hopefully they keep it going like they did with the 2000 milestone, though

    If you mean a duped Musk account, no.

    Building 2,000 S/X while hitting 5,000 Model 3 is important in that the 5K didn't use the "cheat" of borrowing resources from the S/X line, as that wouldn't be sustainable.

    Let’s all realize that the effort over the past week isn’t sustainable, but they know what’s needed to make it so. I don’t expect 5000/wk continuous for another month or so.

    What is the basis for your opinion? I have some thoughts but I'd like to hear yours.

    That's the reporter trolling a bit because this is a full 7 days output so they likely entered bellow 5k and exited above. So burst prod should be well above 5k now.
    In any case , Elon's leaked email stated
    "What’s more, with the widespread productivity gains throughout Tesla and the new production lines spooling up, we are on track to reach 6K/week for Model 3 next month."
    Text of Elon Musk's Email to Tesla Employees After Hitting Goal

    Uncertain if in all the chaos he was aware it's already July and next month is August or he meant 6k in July.
