Facing Cash Burn, Tesla Is Selling $1.5 Billion in 8-Year Notes

However, CEO Musk has worried some investors when he warned that Tesla was about to embark on "at least six months of manufacturing hell" as it attempts to get Model 3 production to 5,000 cars per week by December.

The company said it plans to use the net proceeds from the offering to "further strengthen its balance sheet during this period of rapid scaling with the launch of the Model 3, and for general corporate purposes". In fact, the carmaker announced that it received around 1,800 orders a day for that particular model, Reuters reported.

In the second quarter alone, Tesla burned through $1 billion - mostly on equipping its Model 3 factory - leaving it with a little over $3 billion in cash reserves.

It's not surprising, but is certainly noteworthy that Tesla (TSLA) announce Monday it is selling $1.5 billion in senior unsecured notes. They are juggling a lot of balls at the moment "and want to make sure none of them drops".
