You mean like all the electric cars there are now? Or all the flying cars that Mechanix Illustrated predicted?

Batteries and battery maintaining systems have a long way to go before its possible. Nothing says they won't make it, but there's no guarantee that they will.

Yes they are everywhere You have to excuse me as I have to feed my flying pigs
I see all three of the Tesla models every day and I don't have to pay a lot of attention to find them.

About 70,000 Model 3 are on the road now and more every day.

Very excited to see the Tesla Semi in another 18 months [emoticon]


Look at your last prediction Time! LOL How's that working out for ya? LOL

Looks like some mods coming to the original prototype before production.

I think they’ll be pretty keen on getting a few production units out before end 2021 but I wouldn’t expect ramp up till 2022. I think Rivian will beat them to production.

JMHO


The latest information is that Tesla willl advance production from end of 2021 to May 2021.


Usually, they will be seen being driven around Fremont/Bay Area by Tesla employees checking the first batches for bugs.

Wow. That is quite a bit sooner than I would have thought. Would love to tour the Texas factory in a couple years.

Don't want to throw cold water in your. wish list. But Tesla is ultra secretive.

My son said so when they were reverse engineering F150 developing their EV pick up. That's why I first thought it will have the F150 looks (to my disappointment with their launch design although all of my millennial kids love it).

Tesla battery assy line is off limits.

What's their new timeline having missed the Oct 2020 promise?

Well, they kind of need a factory first. So earliest I would think is fall 2021. Then they need the new batteries which Tesla has indicated maybe not ramping until late summer 2021. It kind of looks like Panasonic may be involved again with the new batteries although not exclusively.

Hard to say.
