Issue 34 - Model S enhanced security and anti-theft

Tesla just acquired enough trucking capacity to ensure Model 3 can be delivered in Q4

One of the main struggles that Tesla experienced during Q3 was delivering their cars to their customers (not building them, that was solved during Q3, but actually transporting them). Elon just announced on Twitter that Tesla has secured enough trucking capacity to ensure all Model 3s purchased before Nov 30 can be delivered by the end of the year. One of the metrics that Tesla is working hard on improving is the number of days from factory to customers, since that would increase their cash on hand substantially.

If you are purchasing a new Tesla in Q4 to get advantage of the full tax incentive we would be flattered if you use our referral code to get 6 months of free Supercharging.
