She noted that if Tesla achieves its pushed-back goal of producing 5,000 Model 3 sedans a week by the end of the second quarter, that would equal 20,000 Model 3s per month, and Tesla just completed a three-month quarter in which it made 29,870 vehicles total, including its mainstay Model S sedan and Model X SUV.
But it was already hard to see how Tesla can sell the Model 3 at its $35,000 starting price and pull in 25 percent gross margins, which are typical of higher-end luxury cars, Brinkman said.

Beyond the Model 3, Tesla's overall vehicle deliveries were on target for the fourth quarter and the year as a whole.
The electric-car maker said it delivered 1,550 Model 3 sedans in the fourth quarter, a bit more than half of the 2,917 that Wall Street analysts were expecting.
"In the last seven working days of the quarter, we made 793 Model 3s, and in the last few days, we hit a production rate on each of our manufacturing lines that extrapolates to over 1,000 Model 3s per week", the company said in a statement. It also surpassed its 100,000-vehicle goal for 2017.
According to CNN Money, the 23 analysts, offering 12-month forecasts regarding Tesla Inc's stock price, have a median target of $310.00, with a high estimate of $500.00 and a low estimate of $155.00.
