    Maybe Elon can meet his timeline goal one of these day. AWD option and white interior should be on time per delivery estimate. Not sure when exactly is Late 2018 translate to actual date/month.

    Well, that is like 4K/week for 2 shifts, so if the previous goal was 5K for 2 shifts, then doesn't seem out of reach. Logistics, hopefully, can catch up to production. In this case we hit 200K in May and probably around 100K total qualify for a full tax credit.

    Elon has stated in his tweets that when they can build 5,000 Model 3's per week, then they will start introducing complexity by building Dual Motor and other interior options, not before. Lets pray for exceeding 5,000 per week during May or June.

    That letter is a masterclass in CEO-ness.

    I concur, those bullet points are spot on.

    My place of employment would never be able to meet almost any of those.

    The hard part with the meetings is who is deciding when “value” is or is not being achieved any more.
    The hard part with acronyms is how prevalent they are in tech-speak.
    Communication hierarchy and common sense can be scary things for mid-management.

    Really good stuff.

    Sorry, but they will not reach 6k/week by June. I love the crazy optimism, but please.

    Fyi, I'm not short. I'm long. And plan to buy more. I love Elon.

    I'm still having a hard time wrapping my head around 6,000/week. That's a car every 100.8 seconds....

    I got a kick out of the part about certain contractors having performance “worse than a drunken sloth.” Nice.

    Ouch...the implication of that letter is that Tesla is like EVERY OTHER BIG CORPORATION. All of those things he is railing about are classic big company problems and despite folks routinely proclaiming "Tesla is different", it looks like they have fallen into the same bureaucratic culture as every other big company (otherwise why is he trying to address them). One thing is for sure, it didn't get that way over night and it sure as heck won't correct overnight...unfortunate.

    I keep remembering the video posted here a few days ago of cars being driven from the factory to a waiting train and thinking: that is a long walk back.

    At three times the pace they are either going to hire driver/athletes or buy a bunch of segways. At least until the cars are able to navigate at least some of the trip automatically.

    I'm with you. They were going to struggle to hit 5k, let alone 6k. LOL

    If you read the mail and not just the article this is what it says

    So no, don’t expect Tesla to hit 6 k/week in June.
