    The Boeing 787 Dreamliner has a lot to answer for :frown:. We saw this filtering through already in the satellite market.

    I already expect this has a lot to do with the cost increase on the Roadster so brace yourselves for more.

    It also probably has a lot to do with the choice of Aluminium on the Model S.
