The lawsuit cites repeated promises in 2017 that Tesla was "on track" to build 5,000 Model 3s per week by the end of that year at its factory in Fremont, California.
Elon is still a big fan of Apple, don't get him wrong, but he doesn't really "think people are necessarily running to the store for the iPhone 11", he added, shouting out his own company: "But I think with Tesla, we really want to make products that people just love, that are heart-stopping".

"Aside from the settlement with the SEC relating to Mr. Musk's statement that he was considering taking Tesla private, there have not been any developments in these matters that we deem to be material", the company wrote in the filing.
Musk said in that same earnings call that the company was struggling with "bottlenecks" on the highly automated Model 3 assembly line. The original complaint was dismissed but was refiled in September.
