Tesla Q3 Results The company has a looong way to go, but a win is a win. The China GigaFactory and Model Y production are ahead of schedule. This is good news for the Bay Area as Tesla is the #1 or #2 employer in Fremont, located at the old GM and NUMMI plant. The tax base is huge, the jobs pay well (not everyone is gonna be a lowly programmer like me). All good.
