At the moment they have a couple of extra square feet, like a giant broom closet where they can stash excavators, 747s, or even experimental production lines.I have a sneaking suspicion that inside the factory there's already a fair amout of people already manufacturing the parts necessary for the CT except for the things that depend on the gigapress. From what I understand the assemply line is modular meaning at a moments notice they can be moved from one location to a better one on short order. Why wouldn't they have already set up assembly lines for seats, wheel hubs assembled with motors, assembled dashes, piles of tonneau assemblies, etc... and piled them up at the ready? They made Model Y bodies prior to Austin being ready, so it would follow.
The optimist in me says that when the 8k gigapress is assembled, calibrated and operational CTs are going to drop QUICKLY.
