Interesting... so they should produce all the Sigs in two more weeks, take a short breather and start on the production 90s by Feb 1?

Sounds about right, but production P90s might be after the Founder by referral vehicles? Also, they might run off some demo cars for the dealerships between the Sigs and the production cars. So it's all a little vague, but somewhere around Feb 1 for the start of the production vehicles sounds right (bearing in mind that delivery will be delayed some amount of time after production).

"The company says it now expects to be able to produce 238 Model X cars per week"
That number seems odd. First, it is far to specific. Second, wasn't the total production per week to be about 1000. That would mean about 750 Model S being built at the same time.

Something smells odd

Actually I think they said they were producing X's "at the rate of 283/week" as of the end of of December. AFAIK they are still planning on ramping up to 800/wk in Q1.

Total production capacity will be 1,600-1,800 once Model X is at full capacity. The 1,000 maximum was for EITHER Model S or Model X. So until they exceed at least 600 Model X per week, Model S production can stay at 1,000 per week.

Actually a slight clarification on the capacity, I think Elon has commented that the actual maximum weekly capacity the new line will be north of 2,000 cars a week, once it's fully up to speed. But it's not wise to run the production line full tilt all the time, so the comfortable production capacity they will settle in at will be the 1,600 - 1,800 cars a week on average. I also believe they will convert the old production line into a developmental line for new model development. Even though Elon didn't mention what follows, I speculate that the old line will still be available for S and X production if Tesla sees demand continuing to ramp up beyond 100,000 cars a year for the S and X. Also the old line could be used to start Model 3 production if they don't have a separate Model 3 production line in place when they need it to be produced.
