Tesla (TSLA) - Get Tesla Inc Report  is likely to miss its own 100,000 delivery target this quarter, despite an email from CEO Elon Musk sent last week that said the electric vehicle company was in pole position to do so.

Hitting that target would be "an incredibly exciting milestone for our company" Musk said in the email, which was reported by Electrek last week, which sent Tesla's stock higher.

However, Electrek reported on Monday that the company is still "a few thousand" cars short of its delivery goal, with one day left in the quarter.

Sources told Electrek that Tesla has about 3,000 vehicles in inventory throughout North America, but they are not all at the delivery centers ready to be matched with a customer ready to take delivery.

Shares of Tesla were up 0.73 to $243.89 in trading Monday on the Nasdaq Stock Market.
