"I think the new architecture, the BFR architecture, is the way to go", he said.

"[The] first boom is from the aft end (engines)", said John Taylor, SpaceX's Communications Director. "Our recent acquisitions of advanced automation companies have added to our talent base and are helping us increase Model 3 production rates more effectively". Still, Musk said he is "cautiously optimistic" that Tesla will be profitable this year. When asked on Twitter why he wanted to throw away a $100,000 vehicle, he replied, "I love the thought of a auto drifting apparently endlessly through space and perhaps being discovered by an alien race millions of years in the future".

Delivery dates have been pushed further into the future for "many" reservation holders, and "customers who waited in line in March 2016 to place deposits for the first Model 3s will have to be patient even longer", Bloomberg reported February 8. It'd also give the aerospace company a huge advantage over its competitors in the new space race. "I expect to remain CEO for the foreseeable future", he said.

Tesla's soaring stock - fueled by belief in the long-term prospects of the company - has now made the company the second-most valuable U. But he didn't say whether the company will meet its stated goal of making 10,000 Model 3s per week at some point this year.

SpaceX made history yesterday with the launch of their Falcon Heavy rocket, with their flashiest achievement being the fact that it successfully fired Elon Musk's Tesla Roadster into space.

Batteries powering the camera views of the Roadster were only expected to last about 12 hours, so they won't provide close-up views of the auto near Mars or an asteroid, but that was never the idea. Revenue for the quarter was $3.3 billion, which was in line with analysts' forecasts.
