Well, they are separate companies, so I'm pretty sure they can continue working in parallel. The car in question was the first model they produced years ago, not a model 3.

Model 3 production is continuing to increase. We all know that work tends to fill the time allotted, so missing tight deadlines can sometimes still be faster than meeting loose deadlines. The M3 was moved up by a couple years, so they're still ahead of that original timeline.

I'm surprised there haven't been complaints here of how the Falcon Heavy flew 5 years later than they initially thought. laugh2

You've been given plenty of citations in other threads.

Yup, just like Spain wasting funds to send Columbus to the Americas. And then others coming here to settle and live.


Nice try, fail though. Spain coughed up money to make money and boy did they. looted and enslaved all of south and central America and portions of north America too.

Now that I think about, good analog to Musk.

I've been given feelings and opinions. Not facts, like the one quoted below.

"Rocket recycling is the key to SpaceX's launch cost-cutting strategy. The Falcon Heavy is price-listed at $90 million, a bargain in the business of rockets."


Cheaper than an F-35

So, if I find a booster or two, what's the core value?
