Tesla shares declined by more than 2 percent to $275.51 in extended Thursday trading after Musk's tweet.

Add in the dual motor all-wheel drive, which Tesla said comprises nearly all of its current production run, and you get a starting price of about $55,000.

Elon Musk's SEC settlement aside, the company has continued to ramp up production across its entire product line, with the Model 3 seeing particularly impressive gains over the last few weeks. However, in both of these categories it had something of an advantage - for example, Tesla pretty much reinvented the electric auto niche with Model 3 and friends. But that doesn't mean Tesla's board can't order Musk to tone done his Twitter act in the best interests of the company.

The 47-year-old billionaire, who is intertwined with Tesla's ambitions, routinely camped out at its Fremont, California, auto plant throughout the quarter to aid with the production push.

Days after Tesla CEO spurned-then accepted-a settlement with the SEC over his tweets claiming he was taking the automaker private, Musk again took to Twitter to mock the agency, calling it the "Shortseller Enrichment Commission".

In terms of actual figures, Tesla was able to produce 53,239 Model 3s. The Model 3, by contrast, was created to be an entry point to The Tesla Way.

The tweet on Thursday was "plainly a statement that the SEC's case against Musk lacked merit", Crimmins said.
