Or will it be pushed back yet again following a succession of delays rumored to be related to the complex design of the falcon wing doors. With the recent spy shots of the <a title="Tesla Model X Spied Testing at CA Naval Air Station" href="http://www.teslarati.com/tesla-model-x-spied-testing-naval-air-station-ca/">Tesla Model X seen testing</a> across a California naval air station, there&#8217;s hope that the electric crossover SUV will enter the production line within the next several months.</p> <h2>2015 Guidance</h2> <p>Following Musk&#8217;s announcement that China Model S sales have been softer than expected, combined with delays of the Model X, shareholders will be looking to see whether Model S production will meet the forecasted 50k deliveries in 2015.</p> <h2><strong>Gigafactory Progress</strong></h2> <p><a title="Tesla Gigafactory Sparks Real Estate Surge in Nevada" href="http://www.teslarati.com/tesla-gigafactory-sparks-real-estate-surge-nevada/">Pictures of the Gigafactory</a> reveal that development on the $5 Billion battery factory is well underway. This validates Tesla&#8217;s announcement from its Q3 letter that Gigafactory construction was ahead of schedule. &#8220;Starting operations earlier will reduce ramp-up risks for Model 3 and provide some potential expansion capacity for Model S and Model X,&#8221; Tesla said in the letter.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Source: <a href="http://mockup.www.fool.com/investing/general/2015/02/08/3-key-items-to-watch-when-tesla-motors-inc-reports.aspx" target="_blank">The Motley Fool</a></p> <p class="p1">When the quarterly letter is released, and during the earnings call following the release of the letter, we will be auto tweeting Daniel Sparks&#8217; live coverage of the event.</p> <p class="p1">Daniel Sparks is a senior technology specialist at The Motley Fool, where he writes about various stocks &#8212; mainly, Tesla Motors. As a Model S owner, Tesla shareholder, and a financial journalist, he follows Tesla closely.
