    I think Morgan Stanley might have been right all along. For once! Given the slow ramp-up, just about 3,000 seems feasible.
    VIN P 3552 - 60 kWh with Supercharging, Green, Black Roof, Black Leather, Piano Black trim, Tech Package, Active Air Suspension, 19" Wheels, Firmware v5.11, 27,000+ blissful miles since January 2013!

    Up till Q1 Tesla had been saying 5,000 produced this year, then in the Q1 letter they changed that to "deliver" and repeated it less than 3 weeks ago in the Q2 letter. If they don't get close to 5,000 they are going to look like complete idiots and certainly there would be questions regarding the Q2 statements, so my point is that these guys are smart (right?) so they must know something we don't (right?) and the deliveries will be there somehow (right?)..... I have no idea.

    January delivery dates? I haven't seen that posted yet. That is a disappointment. I am at P#3820, right on the 5k bubble considering the sigs.

    Just 5 words to say to those that doubt Tesla's resolve: "Oh, ye of little faith" .

    When the 500 vehicle target was given for the third quarter, it made it obvious that delivering 5,000 by the end of the year is unrealistic, and undesirable.

    As a stockholder and as a Model S buyer, I wouldn't want production ramp-up to proceed that quickly. What I want to see is a gradual, careful ramp-up with lots of quality control in place. Quality, not quantity, is what's needed during this ramp-up period.

    Early adopters can carry the sales for a few months, but the wealthier luxury car buyers must take over. The product must be perceived by the luxury car buying public as a desirable, quality product or sales will dry up.

    It's not really important. More important that they get to high production levels around that time.
    Buying an EV is one thing, being able to drive it beyond city limits another...
