    Agreed. I want confirmation they are going to be available by the end of 2020 (even if it's limited). At the very least update us on what's going on and when they expect production to begin.

    The progress is that Tesla has a bunch of deposits on cars that, like the Model S and Model X, are of really minor importance to the future of Tesla.

    I was hoping to hear - the truck would be available right after the roadster is released.:)

    Elon said that the Model S and Model X are continuing in production for sentimental reasons and that they’re really of minor importance to the future. If that is the case then the Roadster is of almost no importance to the future of self-driving Model 3 and Model Y cars as envisioned by Elon. The only progress being made is to collect deposits and trot it out periodically to generate media exposure - actually producing it at this point would be counter productive to “ The Mission .” I don’t expect to able to buy one in the foreseeable future.

    How would producing the Roadster be counter productive?
    It’s going to be their least produced vehicle but it’s definitely going to be their highest profit margin vehicle.

    Elon says a lot, most of it is BS. Saying the only reason the s/x production continues is for sentimental reasons falls in the BS category. Take away the profits made off those cars and tesla is in a worse financial position.
