Tesla Motors expects to deliver 80,000-90,000 cars this year.

The Q1 result stands at 14,810, while the expected numbers for Q2 is about ~17,000 (as guided by the company during Q1 reporting)

Assuming Tesla was successful, and it delivered the mid-point of guidance - 85,000 deliveries for the year, we figure that would work out to something like 23,000 in Q3 and Q4 at 30,000.

Doubling the sales year-over-year in the second half of the year is of course extra difficult because of the need to ramp-up the not-so-easy to build Model X in line with the sedan.  Hopefully, the company is successful and hits its numbers - although we figure all eyes will be more than fixed on what is happening with the Model 3 before the final tally is known in January of 2017.
