Missing guidance by about 85 percent sends most companies' shares into a tailspin, but Tesla stock rose as much as 2 percent Tuesday.
While the miss is early on in Tesla's Model 3 manufacturing growth process, it could be an indicator of struggles to come.
Going beyond that, it intends to up the production rate to 10,000 Model 3 units per week sometime in 2018.
The company also boosted its full-year expectations for the Model S and Model X, saying it now expects to deliver more than 100,000 of those vehicles. It was up 17.7 percent from the second quarter of this year. Tesla says the 100-megawatt energy storage solution will be completed by December, 2017.

Haque who joined the Indian Army in 1986 said that all his documents were verified by police before he was inducted into the army. Later, Azmal received another notice from the foreigner's tribunal and asking him to appear before the court on October 13 next.
But that's not necessarily a bad approach. The company had set a goal of producing 1,500 units during the period.
In an important demonstration of Tesla's ability to continue growing sales of its higher-priced sedan and SUV even after the Model 3's introduction, combined Model S and X deliveries during the quarter were Tesla's highest yet.
"Coming up short is what we expect of him", he said. That was hailed as a breakthrough for the California carmaker as Tesla had never hit a launch target before. Tesla will reveal a prototype of the heavy duty semi truck it is developing later this month, and Musk is likely to discuss other new product plans. It did not reaffirm or change that guidance Monday. "We understand what needs to be fixed and we are confident of addressing the manufacturing bottleneck issues in the near term", said Tesla in the same release. Munster forecast a "breakout year" for the new sedan in 2019. Tesla is also hedging on repairs and recalls by planning to sell cars in California close to its home base before filling orders from its pool of hundreds of thousands of pre-orders farther away from the very limited Tesla fix facilities (Some states have zero locations).
At an event highlighting the passing of the 50% complete mark, Elon Musk stated: "This is just the beginning".
