    Hey, People

    We got a pretty huge leak today, imho. The quote is right there in the title.

    I'm obviously not going to say who the source is, but I think it's solid.

    Matches well with other leaks/rumors from the past week or two, but a relief to me to see such a strong statement. :D

    :D

    Good article, I hope your estimates are correct. Even if they're off and it's only every third or fourth car off the line that's still a lot of X!

    Nothing is solid short of Elon's twit. That being said I think it's 100% true. :smile:

    Observer: "Hey Elon, who's that short guy that keeps following you around?"
    Musk: "Oh, this guy? That's my twit."
    Twit frowns and kicks a stone.

    They are called "tweets" Twitter - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Very funny though just as it is

    Yes yes tweets. Things do happen when you type it fast.

    Wasn't trying to pick on you. I just enjoyed the visual of Elon having his own personal twit and wanted to share the joy.

    Agreed. 600-700 seems like a given now. But we'll see soon enough...

    And people scoffed at me last week when I said the over under for 2015 X deliveries might be 500. I better start moving money as looks like I might get P3XX sooner than I thought.

    Sounds like the "Gabriella awoke with a jerk" thing - for a nice obscure reference there :)

    At that rate, they could be through all the Sigs and founders in 2 weeks, 3 weeks max. My guess is their quality control for these first batches will bottleneck the process to a slower rate of actual deliveries, though.

    Good point. Quite likely.

    Haha. Indeed. I often wonder what the execs of those and other auto companies are actually thinking when they see big Tesla news, and what their faces look like.

    Excellent leak! Unfortunately, I'm always at a loss of understanding: Is this "every other car" with respect to the line every time a car comes off or "every other car" from the history of the line as of the moment the statement was put into effect? If from history, this means 100% of cars off the line, and if from the line each car, then it self-refers every new car so it means 50% of cars off the line. Kind of a big difference. English is very unspecific at times.

    Not sure if I follow, but the only logical meaning this has to me is:

    If 1000 vehicles are produced this week, 500 are Xs.
