    This is a weird post but..

    There is significant buzz on WeChat about a Tesla news cast. It would seem that something big has happened. Unfortunately, the chatter is all in Chinese and the only Chinese I know is from a menu.

    So... Speculation... It could be model 3 certification. The Chinese government may have made sure the cert came in time for the earnings call.

    If that is the case, it will be clear the Chinese government is helping Tesla.

    By the way, the substation is not fully online, yet. They are currently limiting power consumption to 40 megawatts. Full power will be closer to 200 megawatts. they won't need big power until the battery plant comes online. ... But who cares. They are on the cusp of production.

    Lots of resistance at $300.

    So as a newb to the market do the after market prices show tomorrow at market open I guess? At what time do we know more or less what will they be based on after market transaction rate tomorrow at open?
    Hope my question makes sense

    Congratulations on the nice price jump, zukodany.

    I was wrong, also.

    Cash on hand now at $5.3B. Or, as Breitbart reports, complete bankruptcy.


    [edit: As far as I know, the price will be dynamic until tomorrow morning but most pools close in the evening (7~8pm) and open a couple of hours before market tomorrow. Opening price will be the price of the last trade before the market opens. We will know the opening price when the markets open tomorrow.

    Most retail investors can trade after hours, these days. I can.

    If you want to sell into this, call your brokerage. There is probably a way.]

    Well I’m just learning as I go so not looking to sell, I do have faith in the company as I’m an owner of a 2016 model S and loving it. my wife told me to buy more stock when the price went down to almost $200, I bought when it was at 245 a few weeks before. Anywho, great times to own Tesla and I’m a believer!
    Thank you for the updates!!

    For those who are interested in the Q3 earnings call or if you just enjoy 70s funk hold music, the call can be accessed here.

    18 minutes....

    While everyone fixates on GF3, I think far more interesting questions are:

    - What is happening with the solar ramp at GF2?

    - What is happening with the energy storage ramp?

    - How quickly can the Hibar acquisition be integrated and start supplying production equipment?

    - Is Tesla ready to produce an in-house 2070 cell?

    Remember the old days when you were trying to squeeze some extra HP from your Mustang, you would get better airfilters, sparkplugs, exhaust system.

    This is the future now: :cool:

    "I forgot to mention, we’re also expecting there’s going to be an over-the-air improvement that will improve the power of the Model S, X, and 3. That’s, by the way, coming in a few weeks. It should be in the order of 5% power improvement due to improved firmware."

    We know there are multiple model Y driving around the bay area, right now. There were multiple Y being tested on the Utah salt flats early this summer.

    I think "production" is a soft word. I suspect they mean producing cars for the public.

    They seem to have a release process of: prototype(s) -> release candidate -> small internal run (perhaps 12 cars) -> large internal run (perhaps 200 cars) -> small external run (on the order of 1000 cars) -> open the flood gates

    It continues to appear Tesla will tool up for mass Model Y production soon. They have already indicated this will be a major financial hit and it will come in Q1.

    I like that they are slowing down the pipeline a bit. The more time they spend to get the product and production right, the more efficient the release process will be. They already have more model 3 orders than they can handle so rushing would be all risk and no gain.


    Similar confusion exists around full self driving. When Elon tells us it will be feature complete this year, a lot of people seem to think that means cars will be driving themselves around without passengers by Christmas.

    Elon clarified what feature complete means in the call, yesterday. Feature complete means a car could drive from someone's home to their place of work with a reasonable chance of making the trip without human intervention.

    There is also some confusion regarding whether Elon means the underlying technology pieces will be in place or if it will be released publicly. These are two different things.

    The production line is officially operating and trial production has begun.

    Pics are now streaming out of many dozens of cars in a row coming down the production line, not just the initial one or two at a time.

    Being an American patriot and advocate of individual freedom, I'll never buy a Tesla or Tesla stock.

    For me it is more a matter of survival. My community is on the list for potentially turning off the power because of fire threats caused by dumbasses that the run this state. So, if I have an uncharged electric car with no way to charge the battery, it's over Johnny. I'm fried.

    On the weekly chart, I don't see much resistance on this one up until ~$380. That's still a long way off though, and a lot can happen before it gets there.
