I have read they can produce from 500-1000 cars a week, yet I also read that just in China they have over 4000 reservations and that can take over 6 months to fulfill, I assume that is not including transit time. LA to China is only 15-18 days on the water. So how many US Reservations per month 2500-3000? And in Europe and Japan add another 1000. So for arguments sake 8000 reservations a month, producing 4000 a month should only be a two month waiting time. Tesla must be closer to just 400-500 cars manufactured per week as the delay from ordering to delivering seems to be about 4 months. Why not fire up the plant 7 days a week or run a second shift a few days a week? Any thoughts on this?
