    You must have smoked that blunt before making that prediction.

    Gonna do a prediction here so I can get some mad forum creds when it comes true.

    August 2019, China GF3 start assembly in tent. Lathrop storage filled with excess production of parts during the spring, parts are shipped to China for those part where local production is not yet ready. While assembly happens in China, local production of parts is rapidly added. As less and less parts are needed to be shipped to China, Freemont plant starts to prepare for Model Y production which will happen in Freemont with different general assembly but with many shared parts. Production of Model Y targeted for 2020Q1 but will start 2020Q2.

    By 2021, there will be no new sedan designs, as everyone will be selling EV's and they'll be in hatchback/CUV/SUV formats.

    When you can drive 15,000 miles on less than $1000 of electricity for a sedan, people won't mind spending $1500 to drive those same 15,000 miles in an SUV/CUV.

    Not sure if this is Fully relevant or a little too bullish.

    But, I bet that Elon would be worth more that Jeff Bezos in 5 Years from October- 2018

    (I had this bet with a friend in real life already going - but i backed out)

    I was crazy to think Tesla could do 100% unit growth rate again in 2019. So my new prediction is 400K total units in 2019. 500K would be very impressive and very profitable.

    I think he already is worth more, but I suppose you mean his portfolio of assets will be worth more :)
