Tesla in 'production hell' to meet Model 3 deadline: Elon Musk

A GM exec slams Tesla's self-driving-car promises — says Elon Musk is 'full of crap'

Tesla also noted that it finds a strong anti-Tesla bias in the WSJ's reporting. The island's public electricity utility contributed to the financial straits because it was seriously outdated, prone to failing, and costly to keep up. So far, only a few hundred cars have been delivered, largely to employees who in turn will pass along production feedback to engineers and production line supervisors. He added that such a project would need to be decided on by the government and locals.

Now, in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, Musk has set his sights on a new challenge: Puerto Rico's crumbling power grid.

The company had initial talks with Governor of Puerto Rico on October 6th, and are exploring opportunities to rebuild the infrastructure that was destroyed in the disaster.

Rebuilding Puerto Rico's old grid is not the most efficient path forward, experts say.

A report from The Wall Street Journal claimed that components for the Model 3 were being produced by hand as recently as September, as the production line was yet to become fully operational. In that time, there could be widespread death from public health issues exacerbated by a lack of access to medicines, communications, and sanitation systems.

Tesla has done this type of work before in Kauai and American Samoa.

Elon Musk humored his followers on social media by sharing an update on the Tesla Model 3 production. At present, 7% of the inhabitants of San Juan, the island's capital, have mains electricity. According to USA Today, Musk believes that they can introduce a larger version of these systems to Puerto Rico. And the Environmental Protection Agency has just announced it is reversing ex-President Barack Obama's Clean Power Plan. "That should provide that runway for us to complete recovery efforts". The electric vehicle producer reported ($1.97) earnings per share for the quarter, missing the consensus estimate of ($0.67) by $1.30.

In the analysts' view, purple-pillers are in Tesla for the chance of an "iPhone moment", along with the knowledge that the blue-pillers will help the stock price stay high with their devotion to the company and its leader. Do you want to show the world the power and scalability of your (Tesla technologies)?

Instead, many are also looking to what could potentially be an even more useful technology in clean transportation: hydrogen fuel cells.

That exchange led to Friday's phone call.
