The steep ramp to absurdity


The first figure represents Tesla’s expected production ramp in Q2. Turns out, the ramp was initially a little flatter than expected, followed by a more drastic “takeoff” angle near the end, as illustrated in the second figure. You realize what this means? It means the second half of 2016 will see a bigger proportion of annual volume. O the horror!

It’s a good thing SpaceX isn’t a public company. Any mention of trajectory has people groping, with trembling hands, for the Xanax.
