A couple months ago Elon said they planned to be producing Model Ys in Texas by the end of the year. I literally laughed out loud. I mean, for that to happen they’d have to be making them in a tent...

Tents seem perfectly reasonable as I imagine they want to prioritize production and then they can build facilities to move into. The area is so huge that they could totally build the lines under tents and be building final facilities simultaneously.

Basically Tesla has a serious growth problem. They CAN'T keep up with the demand for their vehicles. Think about it. They have a backlog on the list that we are pretty sure, now includes ALL Tesla reservations of over 1,000,000. So yeah, the sooner they can produce more cars, CT's and Semi's the better.

In the business world I've heard that called a "high quality problem". I just appreciate that they're not gouging price due to massive demand vs supply.

Imagine if GM or Ford had this issue and the markup you’d see at the dealerships!

They do not have a mission to change the world. Their mission is to make the most money and force customers to buy new cars every 5 years. Planned obsolescence.

Just posted a new video! Still pretty busy for a Sunday and lots of dirt being delivered to fill that last area of water that's closest to the main highway!

Very grateful for this. Your work is a truly outstanding contribution to this community. Do you have a patreon or somewhere we could support your efforts? I can’t imagine the amount of time putting this together has taken you.
