    According to the latest tesla offical blog tesla produced 500 Model S cars this week.

    If they keep that up for the next 9 months that will be an extra 3,750 cars made this year!

    This should also help them meet or exceed this quarters build estimate of 4,500 too

    They don't produce 500 cars. They deliver 500 cars a week. Still great news though

    Don't let your enthusiasm run away with you.
    Yes, wonderful that they delivered 500 cars (each of the last 3 weeks I believe), however, there is no reason to expect they are targetting that rate for the remainder of the year. Until hey change their forcast, I will be happy if they reach their 20,000 number.
    The easiest way to be disappointed is to overestimate numbers.

    Not to dampen your excitement, but lets hope the quality does not suffer.

    I think that if more options were available (parking sensors, power folding mirrors, ACC, AWD) Tesla could double the 20,000 number.

    Ok I know that after having driven the car you fall in love for the car. The same thing happened to me when I tested the Roadster. But I think that adding to the Model S the options that I mentioned would attract more people to test the Model S....and fall in love for the Model S :)

    I don't know about doubling, but lack of some of the tech toys, adaptive cruise, parking assist, parking guidelines, etc can only help the sales numbers.
    In my opinion, it is the ONLY week point of the car. And I expect Tesla will be addressing that in the next couple of versions.

    According to VINs appearing in the app, production in March has so far been 557 cars per week, up from 505 in February.

    Feb.5th 4874
    Feb.28th 6533
    March 21st 8204

    Feb.5th to March 21th is 44 days and 3330 cars for an average of ~530 cars per week since the app was released.

    It's the iOS/Android app to control the car. Remote heating etc. Your VIN will appear in the app when the car is close to finished.

    Agreed. I think that deliveries have increased but not necessarily the production rate.
    I think that they are working on getting deliveries caught up after temporarily increasing the production rate to get back on schedule after the previous unexpected delays.

    What previous unexpected delays? I know they shut down the factory for a week to give everyone some time off but was not aware of delays with production.

    I was on tour this week, and noticed a white board that indicated congrats on making 109 cars in a day. I assume this is the 'high water mark'. I don't remember seeing a date associated with the number however.

    jkirkebo - Good find, unlike reservation numbers, I suspect VINs are coming out sequential, so this is hopefully very accurate info. And fantastic news that seem to have hit a pace that is sustainable (and exceeds reports).

    WhyWhy?

    I believe M-F. When i was asking about factory tours, they said the weekend ones wouldn't have the assembly lines running.
