Tesla CEO Musk: We’ll Build 80 Model S Electric Cars This Week

The 2012 Tesla Model S all-electric sport sedan is now in a race with time.

The first production Model S was delivered in June, and Tesla has cautiously been ramping up production numbers while trying to keep initial quality high.

But the company has said repeatedly it will sell 5,000 of its new electric car by the end of this year, and indeed, its cashflow needs may require that volume to be delivered.

Tesla news often seems to come first from the personal Twitter account of CEO Elon Musk.

So it was with a message late last night, in which Musk tweeted, “Tesla made 100 vehicle bodies this week for the first time. Really proud of the team!”

Accompanying the message was a photo of a partial aluminum frame that Musk identified as “S/N 396,” or serial number 396–indicating that almost 400 production bodies have now been assembled.
