Adjusted net loss per share was $0.92 for the quarter. Analysts polled by Thomson Reuters expected the company to report a loss of $0.90 per share on revenue of $48.29 million for the quarter. Analysts' estimates typically exclude special items.

The company said gross margin was negative 17%, in line with previous guidance, primarily because the cost of automotive sales reflects the full burden of operating Tesla factory allocated over a limited number of vehicles produced, along with launch-related variable cost inefficiencies.

The company maintained its 2012 revenue guidance of $400 million-$440 million. Towards the end of the quarter, the company expect to achieve positive free cash flow in spite of short term cost inefficiencies.
