Production Hell, Delivery Hell, What The Hell Is Next For Tesla?

Service hell.  Though it might be more hell for owners than for Tesla.  Tesla reported a 3rd quarter profit ather the market closed today and the stock has sky-rocketed again.  The company showed that it can produce the Model 3 in meaningful volume at margins of 20% (as long as the cars are sold for a minimu of $46,000).  The problem is that as all these added cars roll out, they will all have to be serviced.  In fact, the new Model 3s may need more service than the S or X given the race to produce them.

As the owner of an S (in fact I have owned three of them), I am dreading service hell.  Recently a light came on in my car saying that my suspension needed service.  My initial call to Tesla went unanswered.  Fortunately, the light went out.  Next time I may not be so lucky.  With limited servicen centers, no third party service outlets, and a lot of new Model 3s on the road, customers may be about to enter service hell.  What it means for the stock price is another question.
