This quarter was no exception.

McDowell calculated that the Roadster will venture by Mars at a safe distance of about 70 million miles (110 million kilometers) as it crosses the planet's orbit in July. Tesla's ability to meet its target of 2,500 per week by end of Q1 2018 is not dependent on the additional equipment that is now located in Germany, as that equipment is expected to start ramping production during Q2 2018. Tesla announced this week a loss of for the last quarter.

Yet that hasn't phased investors. That goal is many years away from being plausible.

Moving a production line is no small feat, but Musk did say that it would arrive in the USA in March, which made sense with the timeline for the goal - albeit being a little ambitious, but what's new?

Deliveries of Model S and Model X were another bright spot.

"I love the thought of a auto drifting apparently endlessly through space and perhaps being discovered by an alien race millions of years in the future", he said in December.

Getting the Model 3 production line fixed is critical if this year is to be, as Tesla puts it with typical restraint, "a transformative year". In October, Tesla blamed "manufacturing systems suppliers" on malfunctioning battery assembly equipment in its Gigafactory 1 outside Reno, Nevada. The Model S and Model X followed similar trajectories, but the Model 3 will be on a much larger scale.

As the competition is still nowhere near to selling a Model 3 alternative, Tesla still has time. Have you resigned yourself to long delays? Instead, battery module subsystems from suppliers "flat out didn't work", Musk claimed. The markets and accountants might not know that the two companies are one.

Musk is a masterful marketer, and the red ink may not stem investors' excitement. "We're going to productize the factory".

During the company's earnings call this week, Musk told analysts he expects to sell 100,000 units or more annually by 2022. Solar deployment slowed in part because the company is shifting its focus to profitability and higher-margin-projectsm, Musk added. "It was River Rogue".

The upper stage continues on, with the nose cone's protective fairing separating to reveal the Roadster and a dummy of a driver, which Mr Musk calls Starman, sitting in the driver's seat.

SpaceX launched the world's most powerful rocket, the Falcon Heavy, for the first time on Tuesday afternoon.

In a matter of only years, SpaceX turned rocket re-usability from something utterly miraculous to basically routine - last year, the company successfully landed every rocket it tried to.

So, based on the corrected numbers, the vehicle actually won't make it as far as the asteroid belt, as Musk claimed in his tweet.

Had the mission scrubbed Tuesday, "I'd be back Wednesday", Bill Banks said, showing that local business owners realize onlookers will return again and again.

It was a risk. But the mission succeeded with only minor glitches.

The Tesla is listed as object -143205, "SpaceX Roadster (spacecraft) (Tesla)".

Musk suggested Tesla's fate may be among the stars as well. NASA advertises that it will be able to launch 12.5 elephants to LEO on Block I SLS, or 2.8 more elephants than the Falcon Heavy could launch. "It's just a matter of timing".
