Tesla Inc. pulled workers from other departments to keep pumping out the Model 3 electric sedans, disrupting production of the Model S and X lines.Leading up to Sunday morning's production milestone, Musk paced the Model 3 line, snapping at his engineers when the around-the-clock production slowed or stopped due to problems with robots, one worker said.Tesla said that it built a total of 28,578 Model 3s in the second quarter, and 40,989 since production began last July.After mandatory weekend shifts were assigned, two workers said, Tesla rescinded a policy promising workers at least one week's notice before weekend work.In the morning of Sunday, July 2, about five hours after the self-imposed second-quarter deadline had passed, the number 5,000 flashed on a countdown screen viewed by Tesla's Model 3 assembly-line workers.Tesla plans to build 6,000 Model 3s per week by August.
