Elon Musk admits to 'unrelenting stress,' says he may be bipolar

The first 30 production ready versions of the vehicle were delivered at the event to Musk himself and 29 other Tesla employees.

A group of Tesla workers behind an effort to unionize the automaker's Fremont, Calif. factory have sent a letter to the company's board asking its independent members to put pressure on management including CEO Elon Musk to address concerns about safety and financial shortfalls.

The Model 3 is shaping up to be a revolutionary auto, and with Tesla at the forefront of automobile innovation, it stands to reason that further upward momentum may be in the cards for Tesla.

Musk aims to make 500,000 vehicles next year, a number that could help Tesla finally make money. Musk spoke about how the following months are going to be hell after possible manufacturing problems.

The 3 is the weakest in the looks department, as the high roofline and slab-sided design is a big departure from the Model S' taut, handsome lines. We do everything we can to unsell the auto.

Sacconaghi also noted two other data points that further support the argument that the Model 3 could threaten sales of S and X models. The Model 3 is one of the most technological cars you can find. Fourteen-year-old Tesla has never made more than 100,000 cars in a year. A troubled Model 3 launch could heighten the risks for the company, while a steady delivery of Model 3s could generate a stream of cash that would allow Tesla to avoid going again to the capital markets to fund its operations.

The amendment sought to increase the number of members from three to five, including a woman and a minority candidate of OBC category.

But Musk says Tesla worked hard to make the Model 3 simpler and cheaper to make than Tesla's previous vehicles.

Tesla's fans are confident.

SoutheastTraders forum user Mac11FA, via the Tesla subreddit, said he is a Field Service Engineer for Kuka Robotics.

Tesla starts production of the Model 3 in later this week. But the list of long-range entries to come over the next two years runs from the mainstream Volkswagen I.D. - which VW hints will cost thousands less than a Model 3 - to upscale products like the Audi e-Tron SUV and even the Porsche Mission E battery sports auto.

Potential customers could lose faith if Tesla doesn't meet its aggressive production schedule, or if the cars have quality problems that strain Tesla's small service network.
