Gasoline is plummeting in case you haven't noticed. Cannot wait to see a Musk toaster with a bed on the back....

Curious. What does gas plummeting mean and why is it relevant to Tesla.

And it’s not even true!

I have not seen gas below $4/gal in the 3 states and Canada where I’ve just been to.

Traveling the wrong direction there Yosemite. Just filled the car 2 days ago down here, $2.45/gal. Haven't seen 4 buck/gal gas here since 2008. Even diesel is below $3.00/gal.

Why does anyone even remotely think there will be a pickup by the end of the year? There's another thread running about the Tesla semi, and it started over a year and a half ago, and there's still no semi. Why would the pickup be any different?

It’s not. But some confuse shareholders meetings full of hyperbole and trying to appease the deep pockets everything will be ok with reality. Anyone remotely familiar with automotive manufacturing knows what it takes to bring a vehicle from a drawing to full scale production.

I think the prototype will be out but I suspect production closer to 2021. A lot will have to do with cell production. The model Y will take priority. They are able to produce enough batteries per day for about a 1200 cars. Which is roughly what they are producing and selling. It will continue to creep up slowly.

So what it is before the Iran crisis, 99 cents?

If it was $7 before and now $2.45, then that would be plummeting.

Trade magazines said Tesla has the fastest concept-to-market processes for car manufacturing.

They said, they’ve seen Model 3 jump from old fashioned manual assembly to robotics.

What they don’t understand is why they kept on just adding temporary garlic type temporary plants in Fremont when they have huge covered underutilized facility in Fremont. They are knocking down admin building reportedly for the semi or the pick up.

There is a big difference between concept to market when the the first consumer receives a legit final product. Not a work in progress beta tester. It cannot be denied Teala follows the later philosophy.
