Elon thinks it will be in 2013, but is it possible?
How many Model S units must be sold and at what average selling price?
And what about continued expenses for futures cars like Model X and BlueStar?
Assuming TM is able to keep their profit margin above 25% on an average selling price of $65K, spending increases by 10%, 6K production and delivery in 2012 goes on without a hitch and there is still a waiting list by June 2013 that should enable TM to rake in about $300 million in profit and $1.3 billion in revenue.
So, what do you ya think?
