Accurate summaries of the situation in the plant, guys. Yeah, they are about 2 weeks from having a run rate of 5k which should include a "burst rate" of 6k. In any case, a month here or there is inconsequential in the long run. 10K is the goal for end of year/1st Q next timeframe. They are actually running 4 assembly lines...the 4th was put together in 3 weeks under a Heavy duty industrial tent...which the workers like and cheap as hell to build. Line 4 is for the Model 3 Performance version. M3 Perf takes longer to put that car together due to suspension changes, etc.
Tesla was blown away 2 years ago when they got 5-10 times the amount of orders they were expecting for M3. It caused them to have to move their timelime for production from 2020 to 2018. They had to borrow an addtional 1 billion to get it done faster, too.
The last trip (FEB 2018) we toured Siquijor , Dumaguete , Samal and other wonderful places. Making friends in the Philippines brings the most joy and satisfaction than anything else. I spent several days on a motorcycle (not scooter) and really had a great time. I am lucky because my Philippine family is so wonderful and smart. We are counting the days till we arrive for an extended more permanent stay.
