Tesla says 4th quarter will match record breaking 3rd... but how? the negatives of 4th are well known. Shorter quarter Colder weather in much of the country And no matter what people say paying full price for a Dec 16 car vs waiting a few weeks for a Jan 17 car seems strange, but I guess getting tax credit earlier might level that a little bit Now what will boost it? Sales strategy (discounts/programs). Latest tweet seems to suggest against that. New hardware? AP 2.0, folding X seats, non-P 100D, etc.
