Elon Musk to Tesla workers: Perform for profit, prove 'naysayers wrong'

Musk worked almost to exhaustion to keep that momentum going during the past quarter. We also want to thank all of our customers who volunteered to help us with deliveries, and our new customers who are showing their faith in Tesla by purchasing our products in such large numbers.

In total, the company produced 80,142 cars across all models. Since Tesla only reports sales numbers quarterly, these reports were unconfirmed.

The company delivered 83,500 vehicles during the third quarter, a strong performance that should calm investor fears about logistical problems and a looming cash crunch.

As usual, Model S and Model X deliveries were split nearly evenly. Still, he said problems such as a shortage of vehicle carriers will be easier to solve than the manufacturing woes that plagued the company after Model 3 output began a year ago.

"It's refreshing to see the company making headlines for producing cars, not controversies", Jeremy Acevedo, manager of industry analysis at Edmunds, said in an email. The agency initially sought to bar him from serving as an officer or director, a pursuit that would have overshadowed the progress the company has made in manufacturing more vehicles. He is staying on as CEO, but gives up his chairmanship. Further, Musk and Tesla were ordered to each pay $20 million in fines to the financial watchdog.

The next challenge for Musk is proving he has the business savvy to steer Tesla into the promised land of profits.

The electric auto maker said it was speeding up construction of its Shanghai factory as it seeks to combat the hefty tariffs.

Tesla founder Elon Musk is telling his employees to work hard on the last day of the quarter to prove "the naysayers wrong". "If we go all out tomorrow, we will achieve an epic victory beyond all expectations".

Tesla shares fell more than 1 percent in recent trading Tuesday. Production including 53,239 Model 3s, fulfilling guidance of between 50,000 to 55,000 vehicles for the latest quarter.

Tesla delivered 83,500 vehicles in the third quarter, which is more than 80 percent of the vehicles that it delivered all of past year. Irate Tesla consumers are posting on social media about infinite delays and delivery dates that keep moving. Shares last Thursday had finished at $307.52, before the SEC unveiled its enforcement action over Musk's August 7 tweet stating he'd lined up funding to take Tesla private at $420 a share.
