    Unghhh to share holders-and absorb solar city debt. Glad I sold out at 247.xx a while ago.
    It's necessary to build that gigafactory no matter what but it's killing the bottom line.
    I hope unveil 2 will have another major push in preorders.

    Where do you have that from?

    Though, if it's true, that's great. 200% higher output at 50% higher cost is really nice math.

    Please post your source for your claim.

    Without a reliable source your post means nothing.

    Maybe the 10-q that just was released?

    But I honestly don't keep track of the details so I couldn't tell you if the numbers are higher or lower than past numbers

    This has nothing to do with the model 3 and you're incessant trolling is annoying. It's a fine wine, not Pabst blue ribbon.

    You should know the drill. If you don't post a link it didn't happen. Repeatedly make unsubstantiated troll-like claims and get ignored. It is your choice.

    Yes, the same "source" as for all the other "insights" :)

    That's the best you can do?? Seriously you could have gone with the trusty old "I don't want to out my source in order to protect him/her" ...that would have been somewhat more plausible.

    I used my Captain Crunch decoder ring along with the 64-bit Snowden key tweet, the message reads:

    "tsla007 you are full of 5h1+"

    That was meant to be a joke, obviously, but it failed to qualify as humor.

    Now we know you just make stuff up. Actually, I already knew that.

    And no justification for starting a new thread that is FUD?

    Waitasec... The Gigafactory was originally to be something like four or five billion bucks, all told, right? Elon has announced they will build it to have more capacity than originally thought, actually three times as much, so that would cost more money, right? So, getting three times as much capacity for only 50% more money is a good idea, right? And reaching the original goal two years early is a good thing, right? Financial analysts on Wall Street are supposed to know how to count and stuff, right?
