The statement echoed what the executive had said in previous meetings about being in "production hell" for Model 3 units.
"While investors continue to question if Tesla needs to raise capital", Needham wrote, the Barron's Next 50 company "should be able to generate more than $10K/car it sold, and if Model 3 ramps well in the next few quarters, its cash flow will substantially increase". Because of the current Model 3 assembly rates, Musk said "it's quite likely we will achieve (production of) 5,000 cars a week by the end of this month". "We expect to get into volume production by Q1 of next year".
The company said a "supermajority" of shareholders also rejected a proposal to force Musk to step down as Tesla's chairman, a position he has held since 2004 - four years before he also assumed the CEO job.
Tesla has faced negative press recently, after one of its Model 3 sedan cars crashed while in autopilot mode. The firms also have raised concerns about the company's financial performance and the status of Model 3 production.

Tesla had recommended investors allow Mr Musk to keep both roles and argued that the directors were qualified. "I am a huge Elon fan".
