Elon Musk tried using robots, then using people, then sleeping at the factory but nothing worked well enough to meet his Tesla Model 3 production goals so far. But not to worry! He has a new trick up his sleeve and it’s the same one that many of us use when we want to make sure we’re going to get somewhere on time. The trick is to move the clock forward. Either in your apartment or on your schedule. That way you have a few minutes that you don’t really know you have. Elon Musk is applying the same strategy to his Model 3 production issue. He had sent an email to his entire staff setting a new goal of 6,000 Model 3 cars per week by the end of June. That way, Elon believes, it’ll be easier to achieve the actual goal of 5,000.
We’ll have to wait and see if it works.
