Goldman Sachs analyst David Tamberrino, who has had a "sell" rating on the company since February 2017, sees deliveries for the company tracking below consensus, though the company's production rate for the quarter looks "elevated."

During the company's annual meeting three weeks ago, Tesla said it would produce 5,000 Model 3 vehicles a week by the end of the second quarter. 

Tesla has a history of ramping up production just ahead of its self-imposed reporting dates in order to meet production estimates. 

In last year's fourth quarter, the company produced nearly a third of the 2,425 vehicles it produced in the final days before its reporting date.
