As we have mentioned, this quarter is important to Tesla because they have the potential to achieve GAAP profitability, according to CEO Elon Musk, which would be the first time in about 3 years. And while many of us understand how crucial of a moment this is for Musk and co., new photos of the Fremont factory show just how intense the operations are at the factory ahead of the end of the quarter.
We have noted that Tesla has pressed very hard this whole quarter to reach GAAP profitability through driving sales with various incentives and discounts. And it definitely seems to be working. But not only are they pushing sales, but they are pushing extremely hard in ensuring that all of those sold vehicles are delivered before end-of-quarter (EOQ) in order to contribute to the financial results.
A lot of those vehicles were, and are, being prepped for delivery just like we pointed out a couple of weeks ago when we covered the new aerial footage of Fremont factory. Now, thanks to /u/ hkibad on Reddit, we have some on-the-ground photos giving a little more insight into how intense operations are at Tesla right now.
With a ton of Tesla vehicles, a whole lot of tent space for deliveries, and all the Superchargers staying busy energizing the new cars, it’s “all-hands on deck” for everyone at the factory. And being the largest market, California, especially, will play a pivotal role in helping the silicon valley company reach its goal this quarter.
