Though Musk believes keeping Tesla's production numbers stable has left the company with "one foot left in hell", he's optimistic that Tesla won't face another existential crisis.
Currently, the lowest-priced version of the Model 3 on offer is a rear-wheel-drive edition equipped with a premium interior and long-range (310-mile) battery pack for $43,000, with deliveries estimated in three to five months.

"I believe Model 3 is the last bet-the-company situation", he said.

The Model 3, billed as a more affordable auto with a starting price of $35,000, is now delivered only in more expensive versions.

Both GM and Tesla have been lobbying Congress since previous year, hoping to win changes to tax law that would allow them to continue to collect the tax credit, but they have been unsuccessful to date. CEO Elon Musk, for one, noted on Twitter that the Model 3, while newer than the Model S, is not a superior vehicle. However, additional purchase incentives are available in a dozen states.
A Tesla spokeswoman confirmed the change to Green Car Reports, but declined to comment further. After that, reaching the target this quarter became inevitable.
