So if you’re trying to order a tesla vehicle online right now you might experience some difficulties. The “order” webpages for the Model 3, Model S and Model X vehicle all redirect to show a nebulous message that reads “The wait is almost over.”
To top it all, on top of that, another pressing matter unfolded involving his settlement agreement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. A U.S. judge issued an order February 26 that gave Musk until March 11 to explain why he should not be held in contempt for violating a settlement agreement with the SEC.
The SEC asked a judge February 25 to hold Musk in contempt for violating the settlement agreement reached with the agency last year. Reuters was the first to report the judge’s order. The tweet said Tesla would produce “around” 500,000 cars this year. He later sent another tweet that corrected himself. The second tweet said “meant to say annualized production rate at the end of 2019 probably around 500k, ie 10k cars/week. Deliveries for year still estimated to be about 400k.”
