    What’s the speculation on why? Pending release of FSD features??

    I’d imagine people are trading in (and leases are ending conveniently) their chariots for P3Ds with included SCing.

    Big push to increase unit sales and revenue to end Q3.

    I believe it was the stockpile of cars manufactured in Q1 and Q2 that were hold back to make sure Tesla crossed the 200,000 car threshold in Q3. I don't think it has anything to do with rumored updates or FSD releases.

    They would have released those earlier in the quarter. About new bigger batteries in q4?

    Why? This is the first big dump of Inventory cars since Q2 ended.

    Highly unlikely.

    My point being that if they held new cars since before 6/30, they would have released them in July to maximize cash position . The other possible explanation is that demand is a little softer on S and X, and they have extra production .

    Obviously all speculation on my part.

    Right, that's how normal companies might act. But this is Tesla. After watching pretty much every move Tesla has made with regards to CPO and Inventory cars since 2015, I can tell you that logic does not prevail at Tesla. Not logic we are privy to, anyway.

    And we're only talking a few hundred cars, which doesn't make a huge dent in cash position (say $60 million). At the end of June, Tesla had $2.24 billion in cash, so even if they could have sold every one of the New/Inventory cars just listed immediately in Q3, it would have added just 2.5% to their cash position. Not a big deal.

    But if they are tightly controlling car sales in Q2 to make sure that they don't go over the 200,000 threshold, every single sale matters, and holding back Inventory cars is an easy way to cut back sales without slowing down production. Why they waited this long to release them is anyone's guess, and there are many possible reasons we could speculate as to why, but I can assure you that nothing we speculate will be close to the real reason they are just releasing these cars now.

    It may not necessarily be about cash position as you rightfully observed but more about relative cars sold to which has a psychological push on the stock price given the sales numbers are so low to begin with, relative to other big automotive companies.
    Looking at the historical Model X sales, there' been a large increase from August to September. That said, I hope there is a bigger battery coming.

    Looks like Tesla is slowly adding some more CPOs tonight. If you're in the market for a good deal CPO(Used), keep an eye out for newly listed cars tonight. I haven't had a chance to review the new additions for good deals, but lots of new CPO listings going on now.

    Thanks to this thread, I snagged up a New Model X at a discounted price!
    Just in time to return my P90D which I got 2 years ago.
