This weekend Elon Musk was terribly proud: at last the week (albeit Sunday night at 5 o’clock) ended with a production total of 5000 Tesla Model 3’s. That is the first time since the beginning of production that this goal was achieved, while the original planning actually provided for those kind of numbers since the end of last year.
However, it seems a little desperate from Tesla, and the stock exchanges and analysts tumble over each other to say half-dead to the automaker. Everything should indeed continue well with Tesla: the Model 3’s have to keep rolling in large numbers of the band, the people who have pre-ordered must have the confidence that their car will come again. If all goes well, Tesla has the chance to finally climb out of the valley and become the success that Musk has always had in mind.
