Sharpen your pencils Tesla Motors (TSLA) traders: In his interview with Bloomberg TV (previous) Elon Musk gives some off-the-cuff sales guidance, saying he sees an environment where the EV firm sells 10K-12K units per year in Europe and Asia on top of 10K-15K units in North America. (video)

    Does Mrs. Obama have an opinion on this matter?

     

    It would help a lot if the cars were "cute."

     

    Does Bloomberg like them?

     

    Only insiders can trade this one.

    Did he just lower N. American Guidance? I thought the target was 20k/year in the US

    20K was on the basis of orders. Orders have come in from all over the world, not just the US. These are orders for the S only. The model X already has several thousand orders as well. When the new stores come 'online' they will add more thousands of orders. Word of mouth will spread the virtues of Tesla products logarithmically. When the GEN 3 comes out, orders will explode. It was at about this stage in the development of Apple that we bought it at 26 dollars a share.

    so the 20,000 vehicles they hoped to deliver this year was worldwide based on current orders?

    I think this interview was off the cuff yet very positive.

    Tesla may be great long term. But solar city is here now.

     

    Solar city is looking very good with slow appreciation in the last 2 mos.
