    Original and full article here: Tesla notifies Model Y suppliers to expedite parts production to Q4 2019: report

    Recent reports have emerged suggesting that Tesla may be looking to begin producing the Model Y sooner than expected, with suppliers reportedly being notified to manufacture the all-electric crossover’s parts as early as Q4 2019. With this in mind, it appears that Tesla’s updated timetable for the crossover’s release might still be conservative.

    The update from Model Y suppliers was initially related to Asian publication Taiwan Economic Daily. According to the report, Tesla suppliers HOTA and BizLink have been informed by the electric car maker to start the mass production of Model Y parts six months earlier than intended. Considering that Tesla has related in its Q3 2019 Update Letter that the vehicle will likely enter production in Summer 2020, the expedited schedule suggests that mass production for Model Y parts could begin as early as this quarter.

    I really want this to be true, but I'm not going to hold my breath.
