It's not as if they could just go buy a car factory, from GM and Toyota, that used to produce 400,000 cars a year. And then spend a five years modernizing it with new robots in preparation for the release of the model 3.

Wouldn't Delorean just take as long as it takes to make the cars, then send them back to when the orders were due?

They need to make 1000 model 3 every day for 18 months from launch to fill orders by the end of 2018 if all orders become firm.

But they don't have firm orders. Those deposits are all refundable. They are essentially crowd funding and we won't know the conversion rate for a long time.
