Don't believe everything you read out there, Tesla production date has not slipped again
Update: Speaking of correcting myself, after some of the comments below appeared this evening I put in another call. What I was told previously wasn't wrong, but it also wasn't yet set in stone. More power will be put out through the PEM to the motor. That means the motor will need more aggressive cooling. That means it will likely need to be liquid cooled. However, testing is still going on both on the dynamometer and in vehicles. There is a possibility that they may be able to come up with an air cooled solution which would probably simplify things. So they know what they need to do to meet the performance targets and maintain durability, they just haven't finalized the implementation.
