Tesla looking to sell 500K units, demand seems strong

edited November -1 in General
Longer term, Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) envisions selling around 500K units through a combination of the Gen 3 sedan (around 200K units), Gen 3 SUV (about 150K units), Model S/X (roughly 90K units) and the next Gen Roadster. From a timing standpoint, the company intends to start deliveries of the Model X in 2015 and hopes to start the Gen 3 production by 2017:

This looks pretty interesting ;)

    This was a huge info dump (and more detailed than a quarterly report in many ways, especially regarding projections). Something this important should be made public as an audio or video recording. Anything less than that is unfair to those who weren't in the room. As an individual investors it's quite discouraging because I'm at a disadvantage because I wasn't in that room and there's no audio recording published.

    Personally I get a lot of info out of his publicly recorded interviews and I watch for subtlety as well. However, with this article there are no quotes from Elon directly. It's just summarizing their conversation/interview. So, it's difficult to know the exact context. Also, it seems like there would have been a lot more information transferred because the summary is just summarizing. If this interview was made public as an audio or video recording, then I think we would get a ton more information out of it because we would hear exactly what questions were asked and exactly what Elon's responses were. As it stands we have a "summary" version and as an individual investor it makes me feel like an outsider while Goldman Sachs has the insider position.

    On a side note, Goldman Sachs seems to have "published" this article via a website I've never heard of and an editor apparently based out of Karachi, Pakistan (,

    It is quite possible that this information was disseminated in this manner to avoid running afoul of the SEC.
