There’s a mathematical term that Elon uses a lot. Tesla junkies like to use it too, probably in the hopes of sounding smart. TeslaMondo has avoided it due to a distaste for buzzwords, but tonight, unfortunately, it simply must be used.
First, the foreplay:
Tesla’s entire production of Roadsters amounted to 2,450 cars, from 2008 to early 2012.
That was just a few years ago, not decades. Tesla’s growth is amazing. But let’s get back to the action:
Last quarter it delivered 24,500 vehicles. Not last year. Last QUARTER.
Feel an exciting mathematical tingle starting to build? Okay, here comes the money shot:
Tesla’s Q3 2016 deliveries exceeded its total Roadster output by exactly one . . . by exactly one . . . oh the delicious agony . . . BY EXACTLY ONE . . .
ORDER OF MAGNITUDE!!!
Aaaahhhhhhh. It’s finally done. TeslaMondo has lost its mathematical virginity.
