    I recall the number 19,000 coming up in discussions about spooling up the first shift to high capacity once production begins. 19,000 Elio's should roll off the line in the first quarter, or three calendar months, after commencement. That encompasses nearly all of the $1000 All-In reservation holders. Full-capacity production was said to be 500/day with one shift or 1000/day with a second shift also at full capacity.

    http://www.bizjournals.com/columbus...per-gallon-elio-motors-says-its-2-seater.html

    So in theory, if production begins prior to late September 2017, chances are very high that almost every $1000 All-In reservationist would take possession prior to 2018.

    Never been on meds for personality disorder. But that could be the problem right there...or not.

    Only the $1,000 All-In crowd has production numbers at this time. The rest won't get production numbers till they stop taking reservations? It may not seem fair but it's Elio's way of rewarding the people who are taking the bigger chance. Also, $1,000 All-In provides funds they can use now.

    54 seconds. That's the number you really need. The GM line can pop out a vehicle every 54 seconds when it's running.

    1x60x60x8/54 What???? What's the second 60 and the 8/54ths ?

    I recall them saying 500 per shift per day at peak speed (so 1,000 for 2 shifts)
    But your formula is umm confusing.

    1 per minute.
    60 per hour.
    540 per 8 hours.
    No formula needed.
    Or am I missing something? KISS
