    Great News! Just received independent confirmation that Tesla is going into factory shutdown for 1 week Feb 18th to tool up for Model 3 production.

    NOTE: This does not mean production will start early. They have to have production lines have to be in place to produce production validation cars (beta) and for testing the lines. However it is good news that production timeline is still in place without delays so far.

        this is awesome news.
        Don't we already know that there is certain overlap (like in paint) with the current lines, so this make sense.

        Oh he will be asked about this and more... The issue is if he will still want to keep his "powder dry" on Model 3 announcements :)

          As Carly sang back in '71:

          "Anticipation, anticipation...
          Is makin' me late...
          Is keepin' me waitin' "

          Anyone who has ever witnessed an assembly plant transformed for a new vehicle and watched the pilot jobs start their way down the line knows the thrills, chills, and excitement. This is where the ketchup meets the road.

            Tesla confirms retooling of factory for Model 3 this month, will ‘pause’ Model S/X production for a week

            [​IMG]

            Tesla confirmed in a statement to Electrek today that it plans to “pause” production for a week this month at the Fremont factory in order to install equipment for Model 3 production.

            The company doesn’t expect that it will affect its production for the first quarter 2017 since it “added production days to compensate.” more…

            And here it is people.

            The 'retooling' will likely be to update the S and X to the new 3 equipment. HUD and..... what's everyone else's guess?

            It's an awesome camouflage job on the S and X upgrades.

            ** This is just my opinion. But I think I'm right lol**

              All I know is that the drooling will commence shortly!

              I'm going to have to keep a healthy supply of tissues on hand. This article along with the Reuters article stating preproduction runs of the Model 3 would start in late February are great signs that things are happening very quickly.

                      Reuters is now reporting that pilot production of Model 3 might begin Feb 20th. Just in time for the financial call on the 22nd.

                      That would bring good news and might push the stock even higher than what we've seen this week. Gonna be a wild ride !!

                          merged in the posts from the Electrek thread, so there may be some odd post ordering to the conversation.
                          Same comments were made on the latest Talking Tesla podcast (recorded monday) as well.

                            This would also be a good time to move into the new battery cell in the S and X.

                            Very exciting times! It's finally starting to happen!

                              Belgium now, SW France when my Model ≡ gets here

                              @Steve C , that could make sense, yet all signs seem to point to the immediate priorities being Model ≡ production launch readiness, so not sure they'll 'touch' MS & MX right now...
                              But of course, yes!! This bubbling activity is going to keep us awake at night (even more so if across the water...;))
                              Just like 'Master Yoda' said... :p (of course, ours looks much more amenable... particularly with the cruise tan! :))

                                If you watch this TV program which is about the model s just before 19:00 minutes it says production line is 2 months away and I would assume similar process for model 3, but hopefully they have improved processes since then. Its an interesting watch which I think Most will have see.
