The disclosure in Tesla's quarterly financial report also says the Securities and Exchange Commission subpoena covered other public statements made about Model 3 production. When it first began manufacturing the Model 3 in the summer of 2017, Mr Musk tweeted that it could be making 20,000 cars a month in December. It will only require an over-the-air update and is compatible with all Autopilot HW2 cars made in the past few years.
Tesla has received a subpoena from United States regulators over company production estimates, the firm revealed today. Elon Musk, who knows a thing or two about ambitious plans, says dedicating a wing of America's fighting forces to the final frontier is actually a "cool" idea. "Should the government decide to pursue an enforcement action, there exists the possibility of a material adverse impact".
Prof David Bailey, an automotive industry expert at Aston University, said: "The pictures suggest big rework and rectification issues with vehicles coming off the production line".
"There's a good chance that Ford doesn't make it in the next recession", Musk said.
Elsewhere in the interview, when asked about the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi by the very same Saudi regime that invests heavily in Tesla, Musk said that he would likely not accept its money moving forward, but stopped short of condemning the regime outright.
