Wrong time Zone....

In the pacific it was at 730 as it should have been... So it was right on time!
It was the evening they started taking deposits so it was not as if it was later then scheduled

well , i guess that sums up much of the fan club situation..
if you still accept that several hours after business close, on the last day of the month, in the last onshore time zone, still means they .." HAVE BEEN AHEAD OF SCHEDULE!".. then you must have thought the original schedule was to be 8 pm ??

It's ambitious but they seem to be doing well. Building modern cars is a seriously steep learning curve and Tesla are still relatively new to the game. If they've learned their lessons from the Model X development & production problems then they stand a fair chance of delivering. The 3 is more a "people's car", designed to for ease/cheapness of manufacture. Saying it's different to the S & X so therefore the knowledge doesn't transfer is wrong - the opposite is true.

That's good it would be pretty hard to schedule an event then have everyone book time off and flights and rent all the shit etc then say oh we want to do this earlier then planned can you all change all your plans for our release?
As for Stock prices lmfao Stock trading is another fake pile of BS.... Tesla Stock was likely to high to begin with but it will go higher....

I believe in tangible assets.. Not ticks on a computer screen telling me how much I own!

Stock price is just an indicator of what the majority of the investing community feel may happen .
lots of analysts scrutinizing the company data and performance, then trying to guess the future !

I'd be pissed with the boot opening and space it's far from functional it's more of a piece of art, I don't think this car is real going to push electric cars any further than the chevy volt already has towards making electric more accessible to the average Joe.
I'd be pissed with the trim testing to cutting time bypassing longevity testing of cockpit items tut tut tut.
I'm not k coking him but to me the news is hyping this situation and that normally means we got a belly flop coming with unseen cock ups readily due.
It's the second hand market that average Joe buys his car from so who are they kidding ?

Hey Arlo, i forgot about this one also..

?........ Musk said he has established a July 1, 2017, deadline for volume production of the Model 3, but admitted on the conference call that “the July 1 date is not a date that will actually be met.”

“The reality is that the volume production will then be some number of months later as we solve the supply chain and internal production issues,” Musk said.

As Musk suggests, problems anywhere along the supply chain are likely to push his timeline back. Yet, seconds later, he predicted production of 100,000 to 200,000 Model 3 units in the second half of 2017,

When you watch the interviews it all makes sense.

He Set July 1 as the date for production start but planned on the real production date to be 3 months later. He did this to try to give Tesla a chance to sort out production issues... They produced serial number 1 Friday. So that's basically on time or ahead of schedule depending how you look at it. Its not 2.xx years late like the model x.... So far they are doing things 100% with the model 3

I find it amusing that some quarters in the press especially are so keen on Tesla failing that they will flat out ignore it succeeding before their very eyes. Okay, they are about to deliver 400,000 units of a premium EV starting at $US35k and they were a day or two late. FFS, where's your EV? :lol:

Like when France said they will ban the sale of petrol and diesel cars by 2040 - the frothy-mouthed bogans of the world were declaring that "Electric cars are shit" and "Can't go more than 10 km without needing to plug in". Despite evidence that EVs are faster, better, cleaner (even when powered by coal fired electricity) and can be made to be even better with new sources of power. Some folks choose not to believe in reality. :?

Its the general public opinion that is hard to change 130 years of ICE vehicles is 5 generation s worth!

I pulled up beside a model X parked in Cooma over the weekend an old couple saw the doors open and came over after the owner walked away to see what the car was. They asked me I told them it was a Tesla electric car, the first thing they said was you can't drive far and the second was the batteries are bad to get rid of when the car gets old. :shock:

Man Australia is so for electric cars NOT. :twisted:
