  • Good show! Really enjoyed it. Thumbed up on youtube. Very encouraging to hear of the Tesla production #’s. Lower price 60 kWh base car should sell well to Model 3 reservation holders, only need to convert a few thousand of them to beef up the already strong demand through the early part of 2016.
