I don't take much notice of Sandy's breakdown, there are too many variables not mentioned. Also, for Tesla to get to 20+% overall margin on the 3, it probably needs 30+% on the LR PUP model anyway.

I suspect Tesla is gonna have to fight hard to get margins basically up to just acceptable. I'm really expecting another 2-3 years of difficulty with Tesla as it fights loss of tax incentives and extra competition and still nascent autopilot tech. Since I don't know when all that fog clears, I plan on holding with white knuckles as I did with Netflix for years before they took off.
