Tesla is running out of orders for the profitable version of the car. Instead they have hundreds of thousands of people that want to buy the loss leader. Musk wants Tesla to show a profit in the 4th quarter so he simply isn't fulfilling orders for the base model. Tesla also doesn't have the cash on hand to sell cars at a loss anymore.
