According to a report by Electrek website on Tuesday, Tesla Inc’s Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk expects the company to achieve a daily production rate of more than 500 Model 3 vehicles during the present week.

Tesla shares closed lower for a fourth consecutive trading session on Tuesday. The stock went down 2.67% ($7.79) to $284.18, after touching an intraday low at $280.50, or a price level not seen since May 4th ($279.52).

In the week ended on May 13th the shares of the luxury electric vehicle manufacturer added 2.37% to their market value compared to a week ago, which marked a third consecutive period of gains. It has also been the best performance since the week ended on April 8th.

However, due to the recent string of losses, the stock has extended its drop to 3.31% so far during the current month, following a 10.43% surge in April. The latter has been the first gain out of three months.

For the entire past year, the shares of the NASDAQ-listed electric car maker rose 45.70%, following a 10.97% drop in 2016.

Translated in weekly terms, the automotive news website suggests that Tesla could manufacture about 3 500 Model 3 sedans during the current week. In comparison, the company managed to achieve a weekly production rate of 2 270 Model 3 cars during the final week of April.

The report by Electrek followed a statement earlier this week by CEO Elon Musk, who said the company was undergoing a “thorough reorganization” amid production issues, departures by senior employees as well as recent Tesla vehicle crash reports.

According to Musk, in order to “support the Model 3 production ramp and future product development”, Tesla will continue hirings, especially those concerning key positions.

According to CNN Money, the 23 analysts, offering 12-month forecasts regarding Tesla Inc’s stock price, have a median target of $287.00, with a high estimate of $470.00 and a low estimate of $180.00. The median estimate is a 0.99% surge compared to the closing price of $284.18 on May 15th.
