They've missed them left and right.
A few examples:

Looks like we can reach 20,000 Model 3 cars per month in Dec
11:12 PM - 2 Jul 2017
He got there in the last 7 days of June 2018: https://www.usatoday.com/story/money/ca ... 750590002/.
From http://ir.tesla.com/news-releases/news- ... deliveriesQ4 production totaled 24,565 vehicles, of which 2,425 were Model 3.
During Q4, we made major progress addressing Model 3 production bottlenecks, with our production rate increasing significantly towards the end of the quarter. In the last seven working days of the quarter, we made 793 Model 3's, and in the last few days, we hit a production rate on each of our manufacturing lines that extrapolates to over 1,000 Model 3's per week.
As we continue to focus on quality and efficiency rather than simply pushing for the highest possible volume in the shortest period of time, we expect to have a slightly more gradual ramp through Q1, likely ending the quarter at a weekly rate of about 2,500 Model 3 vehicles.
But they missed the 2,500/week as well: https://www.theverge.com/2018/4/3/17192 ... -elon-musk.
For Q3, 2017 “We are confident we can produce just over 1,500 vehicles in Q3, and achieve a run rate of 5,000 vehicles per week by the end of 2017..." yet per http://ir.tesla.com/news-releases/news- ... production, they only produced 260 Model 3.
i guess my "production goals" qualifier wasn't clear enough. I meant that even if late, they get to the production they've set out for:
- model X is unbuildable: now at 1000/week
- model 3 can't make 5000/wk: they are now
- model s demand won't exceed 20k/yr: they still are selling more than that.
- can't build 30k/month model 3 in existing factory: this was what i was trying to answer.
