    As Japan Shutdowns Drag On, Auto Crisis Worsens - CNBC

    Considering the partnership that Tesla has with Toyota and impact that Toyota has on the auto industry, will this cause a delay in the completion and delivery of the Model S'?

    Probably not. At least I hope not. Hopefully all that will be cleared up by the time the Model S enters production. With 20 Alphas and eventually 50 Betas, that low a volume shouldn't be affected.

    I tend to agree. We're almost a year out from any sizable production I'd guess
