Old Tesla Roadster - Only 2,450 Were Produced - Or Thereabouts

Old Tesla Roadster - Only 2,450 Were Produced - Or Thereabouts


Tesla Model X

Tesla Model X

There’s a mathematical term that Elon likes to toss around. Tesla junkies like to use it too, probably in the hopes of sounding smart. TeslaMondo has avoided it due to a distaste for buzzwords, but tonight, unfortunately, it simply must be used.

First, the foreplay:

Tesla’s entire production of Roadsters amounted to 2,450 cars, from 2008 to early 2012.

That was just a few years ago, not decades. Tesla’s growth is amazing. But let’s get back to the action:

Last quarter it delivered 24,500 vehicles. Not last year. Last QUARTER.

Feel an exciting mathematical tingle starting to build? Okay, here comes the money shot:

Tesla’s Q3 2016 deliveries exceeded its total Roadster output by exactly one . . . by exactly one . . . oh the delicious agony . . . BY EXACTLY ONE . . .


Aaaahhhhhhh. It’s finally done. TeslaMondo has lost its mathematical virginity.
