Tesla's Model 3, probably the fastest and largest 'crowdfunding' project EVA...$10 Billion in 36 hours...speculation of 500K orders!

Existing Tesla production facilities and capacities were expecting only a 1/4 - 1/2 of the pre-ordered Model 3s. The sales of Model S and even the new Model X are expected to be affected and production deliveries will even be made slower, some could be waiting till 2019-2020! Expect new Tesla production facilities/partners.

The long years but refundable $1K 'wait' might be an opportunity for other EV manufacturers to fill the need for 'newer' no-waiting and state-of-the-art models.
