That's a pretty flawed calculation though because production stopped after the pre-preorders, so you're including the upfront start up costs for the rest of production in the time it took to produce the units that have been already made (if total production time is units*time/unit + start up costs, then dividing by time doesn't give a very good approximation of the future rate because of the constant term). And that doesn't even include the additional people, reduction in manual steps, or shuffling boxes around as ED was building the first run.Man, I try to take months off and check on things every now and then and forget we're waiting for these, but every time I come back the progress is abysmal.
-150 Units shipped in ~9 months.
-Even with new space, if we doubled production pace, we're looking at 300 per 9 months, lets round that up to a clean 35 units shipped per month.
-I think the last time I checked the preorder queue was somewhere in the ~1200 range, may be higher now.
-Meaning to clear the remainder of the preorder queue it will likely take 2.5 Years at 2x current production pace.
-Lets assume we 4x production pace and ship 70 units per month, it will take another 14 months just to get preorders out.
I know it was discussed prior somewhere that there would likely be a break taken after the first batch (I think it was)of 500 units or so, which is not taken into account here.
Optimistically we're looking at late October/Early November 2022, Yikes.
Ah now you point it out I just realised that it's sorting all the news threads in order by which one had recent comments on it.I just noticed (after 9 months) that this thread was pinned, and there are actually other updates to read...
