A guy I work with got his maybe 6 weeks ago. Of course he has a Model S P90D so I think he got first crack at the 3?

So tires, wheels & suspension / brake bits and the base model is legit @Sasha_SG

Wow, can’t wait to see the build quality on these tent city cars.

Oh, and the tent isn’t air conditioned. I’m sure building cars by hand in the CA heat does wonders for the fit and finish of the final product. :smile:

Haha sweet tent. If any of the big 3 did this the media/employees/customers would loose their minds. Need to see someone racing one.

Elon making bank on the Three?

Sandy is now much more positive about the car after his team finished its analysis and figured out that the Model 3 has an impressive profit margin of about 30 percent.

“The Model 3 is profitable. I have to eat crow; I didn’t think it was going to happen this way, but the Model 3 is profitable,” Munro says in the video. “No electric car is getting 30 percent,” he continued, referring to gross profit margin.

The comments are brutal.

“I say you take the car private. These public versions seem pretty shoddy.”

“Tesla and Elon Musk are deeply grateful for all you beta testers out there. How else would we know our bumpers don’t work in the rain. You don’t expect us toactually test these things properly, do you?”

" Well I mean … the thing was put together in a tent by ‘borrowed’ staff from other areas of the organization… so… 😂"

“So much for using water-soluble fasteners to save on production costs…”

“Bumper to no Bumper warranty?”

“Sure hope they use that Gorilla stuff rather than Elmer’s when they build mine in a few months.”

LMAO

OMG:

I would not fix that. Imagine the collector value, like a misprinted album cover, or double struck coin.

Man, twitter is just savage on the model 3.
