Lifecycle from tent to garage?

    Having a hard time with only two cars at the moment so eagerly waiting for P3 delivery. Unless I am misunderstanding something, Tesla is producing P Model 3's right now.

    With 5000 Model 3's per week - how many are P AWD's right now?
    In a week or two, how many of those 5000 per week are expected to be P AWD's?

    The only communicated facts I think are

    1 - P AWDs will be made first
    2 - Tesla expects P AWD backlogs to be cleared in July - September?

    Seems off since July is about half over now and no signs of anyone getting any PAWD deliveries.

    How long does it take for a car to be completed in the Walmart tent and end up in someone's garage, if say they are in California?

    You seem to misunderstand the Model 3 process. Those people in the tent are customers, not employees. Better bring your own 10mm wrench.

    Later you will self-deliver the car. No questions!!

    If you want to be all fancy with a car built indoors you should have bought the model S.

    Also the notion they'll just make all Ps not regular AWDs for a while makes no sense

    The P and the regular AWD use the same drive units, they just put the "best" ones in the P.

    Which means if they were ONLY making Ps they'd be piling up mountains of drive units for eventual use in an AWD.

    Unless of course their parts tolerances/yields are so good that all drive units are "good enough" for the P and the whole "sorting" thing is just marketing to make you feel like the $11,000 extra is worth it
