With the insane demand for the Model 3, only time will tell if Tesla is able to meet its production goal of late 2017. Tesla has never met any of its initial production goals yet, so many critics aren’t expecting the Model 3 to actually arrive in 2017. The latest introduction, the Model X, was delayed by two years.
