OK so 'we' are up to 325,000 orders.
The thing about this is to recognise what factors can ever slow down the order rate.
1: there is NO saturation of the market possible
2: orders will trickle down when the buying public perceives there is no more point in ordering
3: no point because the lead time is too long
4: a belief that Tesla cannot deliver
5: ditto TSLA
6: some unknowable disaster
7: Elon ceases to be in control
8:Tesla gets bad press
Orders at the current level of interest and belief are not restricted to 325k, 500k, 1,000,000 or any other number.
This is getting ludicrous.
Tesla stock I think has now passed all previous highs and approaching the cap of GM and Ford, except analysts claim it is overvalued (at $150, at $200, at $265.
Extrapolate this. TSLA could get to a point 'soon' where integrating with a major car manufacturer is possible, with advantage of production ready facility.
(Like if they bought the Bolt factory but which is probably too small)
You USA residents could name ailing factories: Mitsubishi? Honda? Kia? All of them?
Because, let us face it, what would TSLA do with a million or 2 M3 and MS and MX orders?
This is not just about M3. Watch this space for sky rocketing MS/MX orders (with higher retained values as a consequence)
If EV cars by major manufacturers become a desirable item in the public's eye, and said manufacturers are not model ready nor production ready, what to do?
What would a genius do?
To know what a genius would do, you have to think like a genius. Therefore you have to be a genius.
Most of our postings are not at that level, naturally.
I just might start a new thread with this thought.
" Where to from here, geniuses?"
