    Just a discussion thread...I was reading this article: Tesla is on a full end-of-the-year delivery push to meet goal of 80,000 cars delivered in 2016
    and I thought...geeze; I can't believe stock prices still move so heavily with whether or not an automaker (any of them) have met sales & production targets.

    My second thought was...well wouldn't TMC have a pretty good idea of whether or not they're going to meet production targets?

    According to the Model S tracker:
    Q3 ended at approximately 162XXX with a 9/30 delivery.
    Q4 ends at approximately 1777XX with a Q4 delivery timeframe.

    That's roughly 15,800 cars

    I didn't search for the model X tracker, but from what I hear, it's a 50/50 coming out of the factory right now. That would be ~31,600 cars.

    Obviously those are approximates, but that leaves a great than 25% margin over what they need. That should be pretty comfortable right?
