Wall Street's Tesla bulls have been quite patient with Tesla's apparent enthusiasm for what CEO Elon Musk calls "production hell".
The Model 3 was supposed to be designed for mass production, and that process has been underway for half a year now (the vehicle launched back in July). Among the issues Tesla faced was its battery module assembly line at its Nevada Gigafactory, which required a redesign.
