Tesla Posts Video Of Packed Outbound Model 3 Lot

Here’s a look at Tesla’s 24-hour commitment to meeting its Q2 production goal.

During the last week of the second quarter, Tesla pushed hard to meet or even surpass its Model 3 production goal – 5,000 vehicles in one week. On top of this, the automaker was also still building Model S and X vehicles. When the week came to close, a celebration was in order. Tesla built 7,000 cars in seven days, about 5,000 of which were Model 3s. Following the good news, Model 3 workers are taking a brief break before picking up the pace again.

During all the chaos of trying to push past the goal, Tesla took video of its outbound logistics lot. Now, they’ve shared a time-lapse version of that video. It shows the happenings as the cars and delivery trucks were moving in and out of the lot at all hours of the day and night.

Keep in mind that this milestone was achieved even though the automaker had to shut Model 3 production for 1o days during the quarter. In addition, some Model 3 vehicles (about 20 percent) were built on a new assembly line in a tent. To top it off, in order to work toward eventual profitability, Tesla laid off 9 percent of its employees during the quarter as well. As the automaker moves forward, we can only imagine that Model 3 production will continue to accelerate significantly.

Cool video. Serious question, does it ever rain in Fremont? I counted all or parts of 7 days in the video and didn’t see a drop of rain.

Why would it rain in summer?

My first CA summer I glanced outside and saw raindrops. I dashed outside to put my convertible’s top up. By the time I got to it the rain had stopped.

Newspaper next day said it was the first recorded July rainfall in 48 years – 0.01 inch!

That’s SoCal alright! 2 years ago, everyone was super excited when we got some monsoon humidity from the south and got a few popup thunderstorms here and there mid summer.

There will be lots of happy people in next few days. I’m jealous!

It’s starting to get busy! Just yesterday i saw 3 in my neighborhood.

Apparently, there needs to be a broad SEC Investigation into the activities of the short sellers, including Mr. Chanos: “Incredibly, over the next three years was stories of harassment of Fairfax workers, the CEO Prem Watsa, his wife, even his pastor. While this was happening Fairfax was besieged by accusations of fraud sent to rating agencies, regulators, even Fairfax’s own business partners. Nearly all of these troubles could be traced back to Spyro Contogouris, a man hired by Chanos, Loeb, and Sender to “bring down Fairfax”. Contogouris’s strategy would be to sink Fairfax by “closing access to the capital markets”—cutting off its access to funding by undermining its reputation. This was old-school Sun Tzu stuff, isolate-and-destroy tactics, “attacking by stratagem”: General Contogouris would cut off his enemy’s supply lines by, among other things, sullying the firm’s standing with ratings agencies and shareholders and others in a group he termed “FoF,” for “Friends of Fairfax.” He wanted to “get them where they eat,” cutting off their credit lines, particularly going after their ratings by agencies like A. M. Best. All this Contogouris promised to Chanos, Loeb, Sender, and others from the start.” Looks like deep pocket funding of Immoral and Criminal… Read more »
