Tesla Motors (TSLA) reports its gross margin was 22% in Q3 as it edges closer to a goal of a 25% rate by the end of the year.

Deliveries: Tesla delivered 5.5K Model S vehicles in Q3 to beat its own guidance but fell short of some rosy estimates. The automaker plans to deliver slightly under 6K vehicles in Q4 which would bring it to 21,500 deliveries for the year. (PR)

TSLA -8.5% AH with the lack of guidance (so far) on 2014 deliveries creating a ripple of worry.
