News of the production line failing to meet Elon Musk's goal hit Wall Street, with Tesla losing 2.7 percent of its stock value in hours.
Slow production could affect the number of Model 3 buyers who receive the $7,500 federal electric vehicle tax credit, and it is unclear whether this may drive away buyers, said Cowen analyst Jeffrey Osborne.
Estimates for Model 3 deliveries varied wildly, coming in as low as 800 from Colin Rusch of Oppenheimer all the way up to 2,250 from Jeffrey Osborne of Cowen & Co., and about 5,800 from analysts at Evercore. We intend to achieve the 5,000 per week milestone by the end of Q2. In the entire fourth quarter of previous year.
Analysts have again expressed concern over whether Tesla can secure the gross margins on the cars it is aiming for, whether customers will still want the auto, and how slower production rates affect the company's other capital-intensive ambitions. "The company has now said it is focused on quality versus volume, which is the right focus".
"Perhaps the issues that have significantly hobbled the Model 3 ramp really can be fixed in a cost-effective manner and shortly cycled past (although this did not happen in 4Q)", Brinkman said.
However, the delays intensify the rate at which Tesla is burning cash-US$1.1 billion in the third quarter and about the same estimated for the last quarter of 2017-and worrying investors, who have yet to see a profit from Tesla. "Ramping up production levels with a flawed product is foolish".
Still, Tesla managed to deliver 1,550 Model 3s in the last quarter of the year, after keeping analysts guessing for quite a while.
Tesla delivered 47,077 vehicles in the first half of 2017, 26,150 vehicles in Q3, and now this new record in Q4, Tesla has now delivered over 100,000 vehicles in 2017. And factoring the Model 3 out of the equation, Tesla notes that Model S and Model X deliveries alone grew by 33%.
The company said another 2,520 Model S and X vehicles and 860 Model 3 vehicles were in transit to customers at the end of the quarter.
