I intend this to be just an interesting discussion. But maybe there are known trends I am unaware of.

My question is, how will quality (an ambiguous term) change as the production number goes up?

Will the Foundation models be of higher quality because they will be gone over with a fine tooth comb before leaving the factory? When the ramp up of “60 jobs an hour” gets going, will the vehicles undergo less scrutiny? Does anyone have experience with previous Founder’s editions and can offer insight?

My mind imagines the panels on my ordered Beast undergoing air bending right now and a line of assembly engineers going over everything with micrometers.

What are your thoughts on this matter?

“…either buy it right at the beginning, or when the production reaches a steady state. But during that production ramp, it’s super hard to be in vertical climb mode and get everything right on the little details.”

It is totally up to plant management and that can change at any time. If they want close to zero defects, it can be done. If left to just one person at the end of the line with a per truck countdown, good luck getting a vehicle with no marks or rattles or missing parts. The Cybertruck has no paint so that helps a lot but it can still get marked up. Good luck with your $7000 wrap if you are detail oriented.
