    Few Tesla (TSLA) lovers have spotted the electric car maker hiding nearly 2,000 of the Model 3 cars in an industrial area surrounding parking lots around California. They immediately took Twitter as the medium of exchanging and sharing this info along with photos and videos of the building. Also, about 4,000 vehicles were discovered in Burbank.

    Hiding? Or temporarily storing until they can be delivered?

    I think Costco must also be in trouble. I just went to their store, and they had tons of items everywhere. Bankruptcy soon?

    I don't think "hide" was the right word. ;)

    I also just drove by a ranch and saw a bunch of live cows. I guess people must have stopped eating beef.

    It is if your goal is to spread FUD about Tesla.

    It is true people Tesla is doomed. Here is a lot full of unwanted F150 pickups Tesla is also trying to hide. Buy short NOW before we find a lot full of GM cars that Tesla has stashed away.

    I wish there was a setting that let me see the opposite ratings give by certain people. If @adaptabl disagrees with a post then I know it must be true...

    I do not know what to think. Has Tesla progressed beyond "production hell"..........
    and has now entered a new phase called "delivery hell?"

    I'm sure (I want to believe) there is a logical explanation for the storage ..... but I can't think what it might be.
    If Tesla is concerned about profit ........ doesn't it make more sense to deliver finished vehicles and get them to buyers as quickly as possible?

    The logical explanation is that they now need to expand their delivery logistics to keep up with their increased production. Elon himself has mentioned that delivery will be a bottleneck.

    Tesla is trying out 5 minute deliveries at the service centers. That squares with a delivery bottleneck, not cars produced without buyers.

    I am one of the faithful .... so I am not looking to criticize.

    If I were a stockholder, which I am not, I'd not be too happy about merchandize sitting on storage lots and not bringing in income.

    If I had been notified my vehicle was waiting transit, which I have not, I would not want my brand new beauty sitting on a lot where vandals, vermin and inclement weather can prey upon it.

    Did upper management not associate the need for transportation in connection with the ramp-up?

    I was an east coast delivery. my car did a lot of sitting around. My total in-transit period was almost 4 weeks. Logistics of getting the car from factory to truck to rail, multiple stops on rail, unexpected rail delays unrelated to Tesla, sitting around for trucks to take to service center, final delivery truck... it's not a straightforward process. Production is now at a rate that delivery is the bottleneck. Storage is absolutely essential, even if just as a buffer to production surges.

    Pretty sure "upper management" worries a lot more about this stuff than you.

    Now entering demand hell if all the stories coming out are true. One problem for Tesla is if the public gets the perception right or wrong that demand is low, they will less likely be interested in the car. The best way to get people to want something is tell them they can't get it.
