"We continue to make progress resolving early bottlenecks related to these issues, and there remain no fundamental problems with our supply chain or any of our production processes", Tesla said in the letter.

Model 3 production delays mean postponed sales could exacerbate the company's cash burn, which Tesla estimated at $1 billion in the upcoming quarter.
