Like the Model S and Model Y before it, Tesla's ballyhooed Model 3 has been beset with production delays. Due to some manufacturing bottlenecks, Tesla last quarter only managed to manufacture 260 Model 3 units, a figure far below the 1,500 units Tesla initially projected early on.
In fact, the manufacturing issues plaguing the Model 3 were so significant that Elon Musk a few weeks ago pushed back Tesla's Model 3 production goals by a few months. Under the new timeline, Tesla is hoping to manufacture 5,000 Model 3 vehicles per week by the first quarter of 2018, which effectively gives the company to the end of March to meet their goal.
