Elon also confirmed they were Building the Single casting machine for Model Y, so its no longer an uncertainty. That will figure a lot in bringing down the costs to build a Model Y and will simplify assembly and enhance structural integrity.


I love your work, Rob! I enjoyed your live stream today as well. Greetings from a fellow Iowan-turned Wisconsinite! I'm a Cyclone that ended up in western WI. I was late to the Tesla party, only getting in back in June, but I've enjoyed the ride so far and all your videos make me feel more comfortable with my decision to dip my toes in the Tesla waters with my measly handful of shares.


Great analysis, a bunch of people have been sharing this on the Tesla investors facebook group 😊


Really great analysis Rob. Keep up the great work!
