    FYI: don't know if this is already known

    I read some place that the Fremont factory will close for 2 weeks this month "to retool" for Model 3 assembly. Does it mean the pre production test cars will roll out by summer?

    I wish there were a big mountain in this forum that I could stand up on and yell out...."HEY NAYSAYERS....- Looks like M3's are on schedule". Even above schedule.

    Agree. And as a reservation holder who was in line before the crack of dawn on 3/31/16, I am feeling confident I'll see a Model 3 before 2018!

    I was at the factory last week and lots of construction inside, backhoe, breaking up concrete and part of what looked like the M3 assembly area.

    Did they start the construction of the 11 new buildings yet?

    I did not see evidence of that but only was at the front and inside.

    I was up there again yesterday. Several cordoned off areas of the plant have been emptied out of the former M&E leaving bare floors. Far back behind the stamping area appears to be a staging area full of outgoing/incoming M&E. Painting clean rooms shrouded in tarps. Back lots are full of construction equipment. Tons of buzz. Best of all, employees look happy in their yoga classes. And a happy zen robotics operator, makes a happy fast Tesla. ;)
