Tesla had said it would produce 5,000 Model 3 cars a week by the end of the second quarter of the year.
In financial reports that same month, Tesla reasserted its pledge of 5,000 Model 3 units per week.

"I don't believe their goal was to simply hit 5,000 a week and somehow revert to a lower production rate in the future", Albertine said. If all goes well, the scale of Model 3 production could make that possible, producing consistent profits that Musk can then plow into forthcoming projects like the Semi, the Model Y, and the new version of Tesla's high-end Roadster sports car-thereby avoiding the huge cash flow swings of the last few years. That, Tesla points out, is a 55-percent increase over Q1 2018, and in fact "the most productive quarter in Tesla history by far".
"I think we just became a real vehicle company", Musk wrote.
"We did it! What an incredible job by an unbelievable team".
