Tesla Achieves Q2 Production Goal for Model 3

With a mixed production and demand success, Tesla's stock could further drop once the company posts its second-quarter earnings, pundits argue.

Total production, including Model S sedans and Model X crossovers, reached 53,339 units in the quarter, a company record.

The achievement of the production milestone suggests "higher costs, given the seemingly inefficient methods in which Tesla is reported to have achieved its production target" including the construction of a temporary assembly line in a tent next to its main factory, Brinkman said.

To make its number, Tesla was willing to "spend any kind of money", a Gigafactory worker said, pointing to the new battery assembly-line flown in from Europe via cargo planes to the Gigafactory in May. Tesla fell short on its second-quarter deliveries by delivering 40,740 vehicles instead of the projected 51,000. Our Model 3 weekly production rate also more than doubled during the quarter, and we did so without compromising quality.

The Model 3 itself bore a "5,000" sign in its front window.

Unfortunately, time lapses of Model 3s leaving the factory at Fremont such as below, do nothing to increase actual production rates although they are nice to watch indeed.

"He (Musk) is going to go through an terrible lot of people because people are going to start getting hurt left and right", by the fast-moving assembly line, the worker said.
