I think Tesla needs to hold on for another 12 to 18 months as a US company. Once the Shanghai factory is up and running and the European factory gets underway they can start to phase out US manufacturing.


Awesome, US tax payers fund development and start up costs to the tune of hundreds upon hundreds of millions dollars. Thank you middle class.
Yes and at least Tesla is a US company building EVs in the USA.
Same tax credit given to foreign companies importing EVs.

And the credit ends for Tesla end of this year. Get yours while you can and help support the 30,000+ middle class employees of Tesla.

Well, they are in the US now, and are the definitive leader at every level of the EV transportation disruption. And yet they can’t be sold legally in about half of the US states. Maybe some of the billions of subsidy moneys that go to the fossil fuel industry might be better spent on helping the world leader in EV technology fight a few legal battles so they can reach more US customers. Meh, no big deal. Those who want them will still be able to import them from China, or Germany, or wherever. Lol. [emoticon]. MAGA. Too funny. LOL
If I were buying a vehicle that costs many tens of thousands of dollars, I would want an infrastructure to do any possible repairs. When you're only selling a few thousand of vehicles spread across the East and West coasts, then repair shops are not that necessary. But who does the work when there are lots and lots of these cars on the road? There are no shops, no dealerships, no parts stocked, no paint shops to fix your multi-thousand dollar car.

I can buy a Chinese made scooter for $800 and not worry about not being able to buy parts, get repairs, or have any kind of warranty work done, but I really expect better than that when I pay $50,000-$70,000 for a vehicle.

Or are these vehicles perfect with no need for repairs?

Wait what? What happened to the " there is no demand issue in the USA?"

Why move the goal post again Time? I'm old enough to remember the 500,000 backlog. What happened to that?

You said that the M3 profit was going to pay for the Semi. Remember that Time? I do! How's that working for you?

I'll ask again Time. How much is Tesla going to make this Qt? To believe your Massiah the number better be in the black Time.

So; how much?

I'm no expert but this does not look too clean or green to me? Another day another Tesla up in flames and another major roadway closed for hours.

Nice, 11,000 gallons of toxic water washed into the water. [emoticon]

I can't wait for the toxic Semi to get here!

Seriously? I spend $50,000 on a vehicle and I have 2, count 'em 2, service centers in the whole state. Yeah, that'll put me on the short list.

So you will not post the full sales number?
How about just post the sales in your town for your predictions?
No goalpost has been moved. Tesla is selling every vehicle they can build. New factory and production lines are being built. I have no prediction on the financials but I am intrested in the actual news with actual and complete numbers.
